One thing I know about my ballot (submitted ages ago because I wasn't going to become less uneasy with it)...it will be better next year. I'm using my Great Directors marathon to take a more sophisticated approach toward the ranking and to catch up with films from directors where presently I'm basing placement on 2-3 films.

Haha, I knew that no matter how many times I proof-read the list, mistakes like that would still happen. Thanks for pointing it out, the list has now been updated.

45. Cocteau, Jean (Beauty and the Beast[/i])
48. Alonso, Lisandro (La Libertad)

Love your BatB write-up, BTW.  I'm quite a fan of the ingenuity Cocteau displayed in his films.  Just saw Liverpool, and I dug it.  With that and Los muertos, Alonso is first-tier among contempo filmmakers, methinks.

Would sending in an edited list be too much?  I forgot about Eric Rohmer and Max Ophuls *SMH*

Woo! Am so glad you enjoyed the Alonso films. I am definitely excited to see what he does next. Btw, I also totally agree with your Best Actor nom for Alfredo Castro in Tony Manero. Such a good performance!

Pls feel free to send in an edited list. It's not a problem at all :).

1. Weerasethakul, Apichatpong (Blissfully Yours)

Did you know I got to talk to him one on one for a bit AND I have his autograph? Yah. It's pretty cool.
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

re: Alonso

Same here.

re: Castro

Yeah, Castro portrayed an unlikable character without a hint of contempt for him.  And the greatness of the performance was solidified in my mind with the moments lingering on Raul's face as he waits for and hears the judging.  I did a 180 and felt a great deal of sympathy for the character.  The ending sequence was icing on the cake.

Cool, I think the only shuffling was done in the bottom ten positions.

Excellent list worm@work
