faceboy has taken my shared titles lead with 21.  Especially glad to see The Conformist up so high.  Maybe I've just missed it, but it seems like that film has gotten surprisingly little support.

It hurt me to leave off Duck Amuck.  I probably messed up there.  And I should really rewatch The Family Game and The Umbrellas of Cherbourg before next year's list, along with the early Wiseman films.  And Night and Fog.  Can't wait to check out He Who Gets Slapped, Les parents terribles, and Je t'aime, je t'aime.

And, huh, I guess I really need to see But I’m a Cheerleader.  I didn't realize it was a Top 100-level film for both you and skjerva.

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

8. Written on the Wind (1956)

Looking forward to this one a lot.

On any day, if someone asks me "Wanna watch Written on the Wind?", my answer is always yes.

Yes indeed.  I probably have it too low.

Same with The Shop Around The Corner, which you have too low.

Wow, I've been away for 48 hours, and so many great new lists!

I'm especially loving the lists that have Rebecca on them, because I had feared people would leave it off in favour of other Hitchcocks.

I have sooooo many films in common with oad (22) and ses (25)!


OMG, Amores Perros on my list twice! Weird, I read through that list so many times on Friday. I'm sending an email to Wilson asking him to include a new film at #94 - but which one? And here I thought I was done with the tough decisions..... Blue Velvet.

We share ten title, Pike.  These lists really having me wanting to watch Marty and The Sweet Hereafter again.  Oh, and 12 Angry Men.  Definitely have to see that again this year.

It hurt me to leave off Duck Amuck.  I probably messed up there.  

I'm afraid of opening the Looney Tunes can of worms because I'd inevitably be unable to include them all.  If Duck Amuck, how could I leave out What's Opera, Doc? or The Rabbit Of Seville or One Froggy Evening or Rabbit Seasoning or Dough For The Do-Do, etc etc.

Whoa, Verite, Stalker fell from #7 last year to #86 this year.  Sad!

Yay for the Epstein film at #100!  Too fuzzy in my head to make my list, but I'm really glad to see it here.

Sorry to see Blue and Aparajito instead of Red and Pather Panchali, but life is hard sometimes.

On the other hand, great to see some more love for Rules of the Game, another film (like The Conformist) I thought would be polling better).  *looks for The Conformist on your list ... cries*

Le Quai Des Brumes was a pretty big disappointment to me after Le Jour Se Leve.  I give it another chance someday.  Same with Children of Paradise, actually.

20. Black Orpheus (Marcel Camus, 1959)
Full of life and joy in the best way possible. Also, scary and depressing as can be.

Yayayayay!  I felt so dumb leaving this off.
