  • Breathless (Jim McBride)
  • Sans soleil (Chris Marker)
  • Videodrome (David Cronenberg)
  • Nostalgia (Andrei Tarkovsky)
  • Star 80 (Bob Fosse)
  • One movie is in the Top 100
  • I'd like to see The Hunger (Tony Scott)
I might remember it all differently tomorrow.

Bonus question: What was a better year for movies, 1981 or 1983?

I like 1981 better.
I might remember it all differently tomorrow.

Breathless (Jim McBride)
Star 80 (Bob Fosse)

I added these two as poll options. I was sure Star 80 was in there already, but I guess it didn't survive the final cuts.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Breathless wouldn't be in my top 5, but it might make my HM list.

That's good enough for me.
