Reseeing it on Super Bowl Sunday, I found I have no particular affection for Satantango at all.

more ppl itt should post their pretend ballots

really don't care about the final list at all and kinda can't believe anyone really does (in fact i'm dreading the idea of 'kane' getting pushed off the top spot if only because of the completely pointless backlash/debate it'll generate) but i do always love browsing the individual lists.

yeah i would cosign that, i remember assiduously poring over the 2k2 top 10 ballots

unless 8-1/2 counts, has a comedy by anyone except Chaplin ever made the top 10?

World Congress of Itch (Dr Morbius), Wednesday, 25 April 2012 20:35 (2 years ago) Permalink

surely 'the general' made it at some point?

(The Other) J.D. (J.D.), Wednesday, 25 April 2012 20:48 (2 years ago) Permalink

It did, twice, yeah. Also Le Million and Singin' in the Rain if you count musicals.

i can't really rationalize my interest in these lists (other than, as said above, it was basically the start of my film education). but it's always fun to see what places around 50 and later.

ryan, Wednesday, 25 April 2012 21:25 (2 years ago) Permalink

i feel a little bad admitting it but i basically have no desire ever to watch 'satantango.'

(The Other) J.D. (J.D.), Thursday, 26 April 2012 01:57 (2 years ago) Permalink

Screw that noise, I obsess over every single-slot shift in the top 10 like a madman. Things that place below 10, much less 50, do not count.

Replacing just one movie? (also, bad form to reveal one's ballot early? I suspect others will leak too.)

The Decalogue is one work, so S&S can suck it (if Rog is representing their rules accurately).

World Congress of Itch (Dr Morbius), Thursday, 26 April 2012 16:34 (2 years ago) Permalink

Think he's just bending over backwards to find some way to justify to himself not simply re-running his '02 ballot with no changes.

Of course, I have no idea what the editor specifically told contributors, or if specific titles were named as examples.

Ebert's juxtaposition of Synecdoche New York and Tree of Life is kinda inspired.

Well, I only know of one voter with whom I am acquainted, and I'm just glad there are no Family Guy feature films he can include.

theres a fair bit of random/contrived ephemera in the 2k2 ballots, esp from academics

KJB to thread (and poll, hopefully)

With all the online-only people I know that are involved, I wonder if this year S&S isn't opening up a third category exclusively for the new breed.
