Voting is NOW OPEN for the ILX 2021 film poll: things that came out somewhere, in some format, for the first time, are eligible.

Helpfully, I can use this text from two years ago:

Annoyed that we’re rolling now, when you still have too many films to catch up on from last year that are now on home viewing formats, or haven't been released in your country yet? Hey, what better chance than the next three weeks 10 days if you’re quarantined, or socially isolating outside of work hours, due to the plague.

Send ballots to i l x polls ter [at] g ma il [dot] c o m by January 22nd.

MAXIMUM 35 votes
MINIMUM 7 votes

Votes are weighted. Please send your lists with your TOP choice at the TOP, but do not number your choices. (It's very annoying for formatting. After last month, the pollrunner reserves the right to alter your ballot if they're having to retype it anyway.)

If you're voting for a non-English-speaking film that has a commonly-accepted English title, by all means include the original title in brackets, but please type the English title first. (This is also to help with tallying, and does not otherwise reflect the poll's stylebook.)

Questions and campaigning are both welcome ITT. Feel free to spread this thread or the voting instructions to friends and strangers.

Where can I watch The Souvenir Part II? Critically acclaimed but no cinema is showing it (not in Ireland anyway) and on no streaming sites (or even those other avenues)

Saxophone Of Futility (Michael B), Thursday, 13 January 2022 16:50 (six days ago) link

Releasing in cinemas in UK and Ireland on Feb 4th.

Crap, we're doing this already?

Will probably run a 2021 poll in mid-Jan, just because I’ll have some PST mornings to be able to post in (and might have seen Drive My Car, Benedetta, and Bad Luck Banging by then). European residents are welcome to campaign for US 2020 releases to be re-voted.

One out of three ain't bad.

Bumping for sic and for all youse. I watched the two Hamaguchi things and liked one more than the other, still gunna watch the Sorrentino before voting, then what? Summer Of 85? After Love? The Lost Daughter I suppose, doubt I'll get Bad Luck Banging before the deadline. I saw the Macbeth thing but I guess that'll be next year for me.

Oh yeah I wanted to give a shout for NITRAM and AZOR and RIDERS OF JUSTICE while I was here

(also fuck whatever any Lord telt ye, the worst Petzold is still better than most of your top 10)

It’s Sunday night where some of you are! Why not make your long list and click “add” on some now-on-streaming things?

dark end of the st. maud (sic), Monday, 17 January 2022 01:34 (two days ago) link

I've streamed nine applicable movies since you started this thread! I'm not done, but I don't think I'm going to make it to 40, and that's a pathetic number to pick a top 10 from.

Do you have a minimum in mind? I mean, what if only, say, 5 people vote, will you still run the results?

Cherish, Monday, 17 January 2022 20:38 (two days ago) link

Minimum: one voter more than the 2020 poll.

I'm finding it difficult not putting my second consecutive Hogg film high on my list.

So who you gonna call? The martini police (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Monday, 17 January 2022 21:04 (two days ago) link

You Pig.

Max Hamburgers (Eric H.), Monday, 17 January 2022 21:35 (two days ago) link

You’re high on the Hogg?

I really liked Bergman Island, The Power of the Dog, The Lost Daughter, The Hand of God, and especially Passing, and thought Annette was interesting

Titane was gross and crass, I hate that kind of body horror and had to look away during several sequences, but it was ultimately kind of moving

Dan S, Wednesday, 19 January 2022 04:39 (five hours ago) link

i'm supposed to see licorice pizza on saturday and then i will feel comfortable submitting a ballot
