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

In regards to Sleuth, do absolutely no research on the film. Go in blindly. Just see the film.

Well, since I enjoy making lists and pretending that I will watch all the things on those lists, I went through the top 100 of everyone who is currently active on the board and jotted down the top film that they listed that I hadn't seen. I want to get through at least some (what an ambiguous quantity) before my ballot is due. (NB: ordered from A-Z of Filmspotters.)

I love this idea... especially the pretending to watch things part.

I'm going to cheat, though, and pick the first unseen film on the list that I'm actually anxious to watch.

Basil: Blue Velvet
Bill Thompson: My Neighbor Totoro
BlueVoid: A Streetcar Name Desire
Bondo: Shortbus
chardy999: Con Air
Clovis8: My Winnipeg
Corndog: The Truman Show
duder: The Son
Emiliana: Wer früher stirbt, ist länger tot
faceboy: Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles
ferris: To Die For
FifthCityMuse: Last Life in the Universe
flieger: Perceval le Gallois
FLYmeatwad: Perfect Blue
Holly Harry: Stroszek
jbissell: F for Fake
jdc: Shaolin Soccer

To be continued...

If I were to recommend ONE movie for people to put on people's lists that would not normally appear, that film would be the 1972 film directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz Sleuth. It is an absolutely captivating mystery story with many, many twists and turns. Laurence Olivier and Michael Caine give powerhouse performances and either of them should have won the Oscar that year (Yes, over Marlon Brando). Do not see the 2007 remake which ruins the original, but if you are able to track it down, see it. It will easily be in my top 10.
It's the only film in my IMDb marathon I'm having trouble tracking down. Any suggestions as to where it can (legally) be obtained?

I've only made it through the first half of the alphabet so far. The Mother and the Whore will likely show up in part two.  :)

3. Make sure to watch the right one. Not sure which is the right now, but flieger and roujin know, I think. That's why I haven't watched it yet, need to find the proper release.
