Buying Rebecca is definitely worthwhile. Great film and Joan Fontaine is marvellous.

One of these two films, probably, since Last Chance Harvey looks dumb and I don't know if it's eligible.

Because apparently I'm the only one who loves it unconditionally, and it deserves love.

Hsiao-hsien Hou is another director in the FS Top 100 directors from whom I have not seen a film. Time to change that:




Even after crossing off Miyazaki yesterday, I still have an embarrasingly large number of goose eggs:

23. Robert Altman
27. Charlie Chaplin
40. Frederick Wiseman
42. Robert Bresson
43. Sofia Coppola
48. Jean-Pierre Melville
55. Yasujiro Ozu
56. Carl Theodor Dreyer
57. Edward Yang
58. Satoshi Kon
62. Claire Denis
64. Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne
64. Kenji Mizoguchi
64. Errol Morris
71. Agnes Varda
72. F. W. Murnau
72. Preston Sturges
74. Hal Ashby
77. Atom Egoyan
78. Sergei Eisenstein
80. Jim Jarmusch
84. Andrei Tarkovsky
86. Sam Peckinpah
86. Satyajit Ray
91. John Carpenter
93. Isao Takahata
96. George Romero
97. Nicholas Ray
99. Guy Maddin

All the ties make me think that there wasn't a huge number of votes but, nevertheless, I need to fix this.

Hmm, it bodes well that you saved Kon for after Miyazaki. Prepare to be blown away by greatness when that time comes.

I like this one a lot ... I would like it even more if it wasn't so damn moralizing in the end.

Nope, you're not alone. I'm a member of your club too.

There's a clear pattern here. Movies based on Nick Hornby books are usually good or great.

This is not only my first Miyazaki but really my first cartoon animation apart from all the classic kids movies like Cinderella.
Why do people quit watching cartoons when they grow up? It's like they just box in part of their soul and place it in the corner.
