I defer to you as the Ichikawa expert. I'll look for it tomorrow.

Walkabout (1971)
Don't Look Now (1973)
The Man Who Fell to Earth (1976)

KOL and Dave (and anyone else who is interested)...

How do you feel about marking this for the Summer. One a month in June, July and August?

Excellent, I have found 2 of the films (both on Amzaon, 1 on Prime, the other a rental), just working on the third.

LIKELY:
An Actor's Revenge (1963)

Definitely make time for it, it's a very good film... http://forum.filmspotting.net/index.php?topic=12095.msg741243#msg741243

I've got it right here. It's the one I was definitely going to watch again because it was my introduction to Ichikawa and I've developed a lot since seeing it, which my review from 2011 shows. (It's like something DH would've written.)

1SO vs. All the Directors - Maurice Pialat

#189 Maurice Pialat Ranked List

By my comments here you wouldn't guess I took a French Cinema class in college. It seems the focus was on contemporary filmmakers because I was never exposed to most of the French directors on the sub-boards. I've stumbled into watching three of Pialat's dozen(ish) features, and never really formed an opinion one way or the other.

On the thread, goodguy has an extensive ranked list and worm@work posted a number of reviews. Looking over the titles, here's what I'm interested in. It depends on availability and I don't plan to watch all four.

We Won't Grow Old Together (1972)
The Mouth Agape (1974)
Loulou (1980)
Under the Sun of Satan (1987)

Never mind. Having seen the first two, I definitely plan to watch all four and may add Police (1985).

1SO vs. All the Directors - Pen-Ek Ratanaruang

#190 Pen-Ek Ratanaruang

One of the more obscure names in our sub-board, I don't have a ranked list because I've only seen Last Life in the Universe, which I didn't like. Been meaning to see 6ixtynin9, a favorite of MartinTeller that sounds more like the genre cinema I love than the WKW moodiness of Last Life. (I thought I had seen it, but what I watched was the Japanese roommate horror comedy 2LDK.) Depending on how that goes, I'm also interested in Headshot (2011)

1SO vs. All the Directors - Barbet Schroeder

#191  Barbet Schroeder Ranked List

Here's a name that's fallen off the cultural map. I'd make the argument for removing him from the Directors Board, having been a force in cinema from 1987 (Barfly) through 1990 (Reversal of Fortune) after which time he hacked his way down into obscurity.

Then again, I haven't seen Martin's Top 4 and he started this thread. I'll look for General Idi Amin Dada (1974) and Maitresse (1976). can't fake interest in Koko: A Talking Gorilla.

I'm surprised I left La Vallee and More off of the poll choices... both are significant because of the Pink Floyd connection.

You didn't. When I corrected the poll, I moved the two Any options to the top.  La Vallee and More had no votes and from what I read General Idi Amin Dada is what first put him on people's radar.

What is the Pink Floyd connection?
