I totally forgot about Before Sunrise, even though I saw it like two weeks before I made my list. Then again, I'm not sure if I think it's better than Yi Yi (Which was my 101). I'll have to revisit both.

Yi Yi's placement on the list suggests that it should be much higher on your list next year.

It's fortunate that it was even considered. There was a lot of stuff that didn't really work until the end for me. And I still have some serious problems with it.

his artsy stuff is way too experimental and inaccessible, not a fan of either.

Is this more Gerry and Last Days? Cuz Elephant and Paranoid Park are pretty accessible.

You read me like a book, I actually only watched Last Days and Gerry and decided I didn't care for the late stuff, so PP and Elephant are different?

i think they are all different, and LD and G more experimental than PP and E.  i think elements of all these four show up in Milk - good stuff

Milk was good but not great, I felt that the biopic genre was too limiting for as creative a director as GVS.  I will check out PP and Elephant though, its not that I hated Last Days or Gerry...  Its just the sort of movies that are better remembered than actually watched.
Iíve lied to men who wear belts. Iíve lied to men who wear suspenders. But Iíd never be so stupid as to lie to a man who wears both a belt and suspenders.

Hey Wilson, is there a spreadsheet available that has all of the ballots compiled onto it, with the members' names still attached to the films?

Cool, I hope the list changes a lot.
