Shower is the film I hope at least one person watches in preparation for the voting. It is alive and available in round 3 of the Far East Bracket.

If I see anything, it might be a Joao Cesar Monteiro film.

Shower is the only 1999 film from your Collection I haven't seen, which is why I put it on my Watchlist.

For the record Run Lola Run is considered 1998. Princess Mononoke is 1997.

yeah, I've had to kick out a good deal on my list due to production v. distribution date issues... though others have to be added in.

Last times we did this the first post was used as an index, e.g. 1974, 1957.
Alright, well, I will do that as well!

Sorry to be a pain in the a**, but as you can see by the example links, pixote maintained an index of all the films to discover, with IMDb links, member reviews, etc. Since you started the thread, that responsibility kinda fell on you, unless a moderator can take over.

Well, shit. I just wanted to have a place where I can record the 1999 films I have seen on filmspotting. /shrug

Pixote? Would you like to take over?
