Mullholland Dr. is less than 2.5 hrs. It's the film that turned me from mixed on Lynch to being a fan. Happy to discuss it anytime. Once you figure it out - or at least come up with a theory because Lynch won't comment - it becomes a lot of fun.

Double Indemnity

The femme fatale had good dialogue but the performance was not very fatale.

Okay, I'm convinced that you inhabit a different universe than I do.

Does your universe have cookie Thursdays ? Because any universe I inhabit must have cookie Thursdays.

What draws you to the character ?

It's true though. It's not that Stanwyck doesn't give a good performance : she does... but she's nowhere near as seductive as she is in The Lady Eve.

Now, there is a woman who could fatale my heart.

Crazy! I'm with MT.

On a purely operational level, the guy is more of a sap in The Lady Eve, which makes her less of a fatale. And then you move on to her actual character!

He is a humongous sap, but that is a comedy, not noir. She is not supposed to be fatale to begin with, just seductive.

97/101 for me. Need to get to:

27. The Double Life of Veronique
48. Fanny and Alexander
64. Ikiru
100. The Royal Tenenbaums

I've since made up three of these. One more to go!

I have updated the index with movies from previous forum Top 100 lists, thanks to Corndog's work. The progression will, as always, be irregular and dishevelled, but I will try to update the index whenever I do watch one of these - the frequency of which depends on how taken I am by watching movies for other projects, clubs, or recent releases.
