Top 100 Club: Sam the Cinema Snob
« on: October 01, 2018, 09:33:06 PM »
The powers that be have tapped me to be October's Top 100 Club subject. I am frankly humbled to be chose to host on what is clearly the best month of the year.

My most up to date list.

Apologies for no icheckmovies or Letterboxd version. I am not hip enough to have my top 100 on those sites.

Also, for anyone looking for horror overlap, as it is the season, I'll save you some time:

Take Shelter
Alien
A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)
Perfect Blue
Meshes of the Afternoon (Also a short and co-directed by a woman)
Pan's Labyrinth
Cat People (1942)
Phantom of the Paradise
Scream

My only option is Shirin, but I would gladly trade it for something else.

To work the Shocktober cross-over appeal, I'm prioritizing Cat People. Then, depending on how much I want to annoy myself, I'll watch some Godard (Vivre sa vie).

Two choices for me.
66. Silence (2016)
99. To the Wonder (2012)

I dunno, either one maybe both. Both interest me, but only to a point. I'd also like to rewatch a number of films on this list but my movie watching habits have been sporadic lately, so we'll see what I can get to.

Main ones I'm looking at would be:

Copie conforme / Certified Copy
Sedmikrasky / Daisies
Popiol i diament / Ashes and Diamonds

And if I feel in a Shocktober mood, there are some big horror blind spots I could cover too (A Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream).

66 that I have not seen. These are the ones I have the best chance to watch:

20. Amadeus (1984)
48. Meshes of the Afternoon (1943)
49. The House is Black (1963)
91. Scream (1996)

I have started Scream, so that one is likely to be first of the block, although Meshes might beat it.

On your list, I’d really like to get to the following:

Daisies
L’Argent
Diary of a Country Priest
Late Spring

I really need to finish L’Atlante, which I started about a month ago and forgot about.

I know nothing about The Old Mill or the Goddard.

I think The Old Mill is this short

The Old Mill

That was charming.  For all it's brevity, it was as beautiful as Bambi and as dramatic as The Secret of NIMH.  Disney has proven again and again that entertainment doesn't have to be stuffed with words or comedy to still be excellent.  It has to be quality, it has to be visually stunning, and it has to have stakes.  This short has it all.

4/5
