Children in movies are usually either creepy or annoying.

Just like in real life.

The following films received multiple votes, all of the Top 20 variety:

F—king Amal (6)
New World (3)
Charulata (2)
Leopard (2)
Never Cry Wolf (2)
Ashes And Diamonds (2)
Das Boot (2)
Hunger (2)
Last Temptation of Christ (2)

The following (additional) films received multiple votes, all of the Top 40 variety:

Amadeus (8)
Eureka (7)
La Jetée (5)
La Dolce Vita (4)
Charade (4)
Waiting for Guffman (3)
Love Me Tonight (3)
A Night at the Opera (3)
Werckmeister Harmonies (3)      
Millennium Mambo (3)
Happy Gilmore (2)
Being There (1979) (2)
L'avventura (2)
Ordet (1955) (2)
Short Film About Killing (2)
Adventures of Prince Achmed (2)
Celebration (1998) (2)
Los Olvidados (2)
Pi (2)
Out of the Blue (2)
Tropical Malady (2)
All Quiet on the Western Front (2)
Return (2003) (2)
Underground (1995) (2)
Blissfully Yours (2)
Finding Neverland (2004) (2)
Juno (2)
Small Change (2)
Welfare (2)
Battle Royale (2)
Capturing the Friedmans (2003)  (2)
You Can’t Take It With You (2)

Comparing those results to a general sense of how many people here have seen each of those films, I think someone should volunteer for the following discoveries marathon:

1930s: Love Me Tonight
1950s: Los Olvidados
1950s: Ashes and Diamonds
1960s: The Leopard
1960s: Churulata
1970s: Welfare
1980s: Out of the Blue
1990s: Underground
2000s: Eureka
2000s: Werckmeister Harmonies

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

Having seen Underground and Werckmeister off of that list I'm going to not take that on.

Anyway, based on that list I guess I'm the forum's foremost proponent of Juno.

I was the lone vote for more films (35) than made the Top 100 from my list (24).

Really surprised that nobody else voted for the following:

RoboCop
Blowup
Knife in the Water
Rebel Without a Cause
Au Revoir, Les Enfants

On the other hand, I'm really thrilled to see seven votes for Eureka, seven votes for Ratcatcher, six votes for A Man Escaped, four votes for A Letter to Three Wives, three votes for Love Me Tonight, three votes for My Darling Clementine, four votes for Texas Chainsaw Massacre, four votes for Pather Panchali, and five votes for Wild Reeds.

I missed my chance to participate, but here's my stats:

# of my top 100 that made it: 21
# of my top 10 that made it: 2
# that no one else voted for: 31
# that 1 other person voted for: 13

The only one on the top 100 I haven't seen is F**king Amal.

Done! When I have the time, of course. And I'll need to swap out the two 2000s, as I've seen them both.

Knife in the Water

This was in the mix for me but settled around #120. Already had 4 Polanski films in my Top 100 too.


39 of my Top 100 made the list.  :)

Enormous number.

I thought about voting for Robocop, but it just did not make the cut.
