smirnoff: Another Woman
fwiw, I actually rewatched it since it made my top 100. While I still liked it, it won't be on my list this year.

I'm having trouble measuring the more grim movies like The Dark Knight and Munich with lighter themed movies like Wall-E and Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

Also, my list has like zero classics on it. As I previously posted (a post which I'll use to my defense! ;)) the movies that are more personal (not always the best "made") for me are ones in recent years that many don't hold in as high regard as I do. Examples off my top 100 include Finding Neverland and Mystic River, two films I'd call beautifully executed. Yet people love to tear them a new ass.

I'd never put Wall-E in the lighter themed category myself.

Mystic River will just miss my list, but Finding Neverland will make my list, it's in my top 10.

I don't have either of those two on my list but I'm definitely with you about newer films generally being more personal. 90% of my films are 90s/00s.

I would LOVE to see The Red Shoes make the Top 100 this year.  I hadn't seen it last year, but it will definitely make my list this time around.  Great, great stuff.

I'll be watching it with the filmspotting marathon within the next few months so it won't make the list.

Klute is well known and highly regarded by my generation and older.  I didn't like it at all.  The mystery is completely stepped on in favor of a character piece.  Instead I highly suggest more people watch They Shoot Horses, Don't They?

Is Klute well-known/ well-regarded?

Klute didn't make my list

It's the first in Alan J. Pakula's paranoia themed trilogy that continues in The Parallax View and concludes in All the President's Men. All the President's Men made my list and Alan J. Pakula will be on my Top 100 directors when that comes around.

Jane Fonda has to be one of my favorite actresses from that era because of They Shoot Horses Don't They?, Klute, Coming Home, and The China Syndrome.
