Tempted to change my vote to Clue.  I should really see Kiss of the Spider Woman again at some point, too.

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

I guess it's obvious that I voted Back to the Future. But understand I have not seen Ran.

Oh, and I haven't seen Shoah, so according to Siskel and Ebert I'm dumb to even have voted.

You people can have your Ran and I'll have my Pee-Wee's Big Adventure, thank you very much.

Brazil, by so much that I'm slightly peeved it's not more people's fave (though admittedly this was a damn fine year for films)
