1994 has like 4 really good Brakhage shorts... but I'm guessing Beastie Boys "Sabotage" would win

I also wonder how many people would watch Satantango for Retrospots

Didn't even think of music videos. That'd be cool.

I like the idea of something post 1980 to try and get more people involved. 1994 is an excellent spot. Keep the Tarantino/anti-Tarantino fires stoked for Django.

That's going to be a cabal exclusive.

Better than "Mary Jane's Last Dance" sure, but better than "Buddy Holly"? I see Spike Jonze dominating like Fuller dominated 1957.

Love that one. But it's '93.
