a) more filmspotters like Lynch than Cronenberg
b) judging from your taste in film, Lynch's appearance was, in a sense, to be expected.

therefore c) I'm just happy Cronenberg received another vote of confidence. You want me retract that stamp of approval? I'll do it if you dare me!

face, love that Sirk frame!  what is it from?  i am also feeling awful that i have zero experience with seven! of your  directors - Cocteau, Wajda, Melville, Sirk, Wertmüller, Resnais, and Dreyer - i drop my head in shame.  also, is the Varda still from La pointe-courte?  (it is a pretty recognized frame, no?)

But I wish the public could, in the midst of its pleasures, see how blatantly it is being spoon-fed, and ask for slightly better dreams.

I can vouch for Wajda, Melville, and Dreyer.

I'm hoping at least Melville and Dreyer get high on the list.

The 28th


We're still doing a second round of voting, right?

We shall see.

No, I appreciate your logic and gladly accept your approval.

face, love that Sirk frame!  what is it from?  i am also feeling awful that i have zero experience with seven! of your  directors - Cocteau, Wajda, Melville, Sirk, Wertmüller, Resnais, and Dreyer - i drop my head in shame.  also, is the Varda still from La pointe-courte?  (it is a pretty recognized frame, no?)


The Sirk frame is from Written on the Wind (It's a fantastic film, particularly good if you're in a Lacanian mood). I am very saddened that you've missed the ones you have and hope you can fit in some rectification in asap. Yeah, it is a pretty recognized frame from La Pointe-courte. I don't have a dvd for that one so I had to take what the internet gave me. It's a fun one to show since it pre-dates Persona.

I don't like your top three. They are typical faceboy choices.

They have to have a particular order for the scoring system to work.

Also, everyone remember that putting your list on this thread ain't good enough. You have to send me a PM with your lists.
