xp Petite Maman would be in my top 3 except I thought it was a 2021 film.

DPRK in Cincinnati (WmC), Sunday, 28 August 2022 17:06 (five months ago) link

Nope
Both Sides of the Blade
Top Gun: Maverick

Chris L, Sunday, 28 August 2022 18:03 (five months ago) link

I keep re-watching Crimes of the Future, it's the best hard boiled 40's/50's noir tribute in decades and the music is perfect.

calzino, Sunday, 28 August 2022 22:04 (five months ago) link

I don't have three yet, but Mad God for sure.

Everything Everywhere All At Once
RRR
Elvis

clearly i've been a sucker for spectacle this year. still need to see Nope. had not heard of Hannah Ha Ha until just now but it looks very cool. had a really nice time watching Petite Maman but haven't done a lot of thinking about it since - could imagine it growing on me on a rewatch or after reading something brilliant on it.

worst: easily The 355. tho Death on the Nile was also pretty bad.

How was WOTW?

Malevolent Arugula (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Monday, 29 August 2022 13:49 (five months ago) link

After Yang
Nope
Everything Everywhere All At Once

the body of a spider... (scampering alpaca), Monday, 29 August 2022 13:55 (five months ago) link

xp sexy and goofy and ambitious and very brief ... it shouldn't work and, for many, I suspect it won't, but it arguably does gay firefighters better than did Titane

comedy khadafi (voodoo chili), Monday, 29 August 2022 15:16 (five months ago) link

i don't wanna be boring and then just post nope and everything everywhere, even though that would be my honest answer

comedy khadafi (voodoo chili), Monday, 29 August 2022 15:17 (five months ago) link

I mean those are my two answers, along with Mad God. (And certainly RRR is a hell of a ride if a loaded one.)

Ned Raggett, Monday, 29 August 2022 15:36 (five months ago) link

Crimes of The Future
Ambulance
Dashcam

I really want to see RRR

Saxophone Of Futility (Michael B), Monday, 29 August 2022 17:04 (five months ago) link

wish i could've fit ambulance in my top three tbh

flamenco drop (BradNelson), Monday, 29 August 2022 17:05 (five months ago) link

Looks like there are 2 movies from the past year titled Dashcam.

Have you seen it?

Malevolent Arugula (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Monday, 24 October 2022 21:40 (three months ago) link

Popping the popcorn as we speak to watch it.

Eric H., Monday, 24 October 2022 21:40 (three months ago) link

The minutes will seem like hours.

Malevolent Arugula (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Monday, 24 October 2022 21:42 (three months ago) link

I see a cathedral, a bishop, banks of flowers.

Tár
Everything Everywhere All At Once
Flux Gourmet

ernestp, Tuesday, 25 October 2022 01:51 (three months ago) link

TÁR
Everything Everywhere All at Once
RRR

TÁR easily my favorite as of now

na (NA), Monday, 7 November 2022 15:21 (two months ago) link

Poster for TÁR has been intriguing me. Wish I had seen RRR when it was on MUBI GO, still haven’t caught up with it.

(We're Not) The Experimental Jet Set (James Redd and the Blecchs), Monday, 7 November 2022 16:04 (two months ago) link

i think it's on netflix now?

na (NA), Monday, 7 November 2022 16:04 (two months ago) link

TAR
RRR
RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

ex-McKinsey wonk who looks like a human version of a rat (Eric H.), Monday, 7 November 2022 16:12 (two months ago) link

TÁRRR would be quite a crossover

na (NA), Monday, 7 November 2022 16:14 (two months ago) link

RRR
Decision To Leave
Girl Picture

Daniel_Rf, Monday, 7 November 2022 16:15 (two months ago) link

I believe the version of RRR on Netflix is a Hindi dub

Daniel_Rf, Monday, 7 November 2022 16:15 (two months ago) link

Have caught up with a few more in anticipation of a first-draft year-end ballot:

Benediction [Soto OTM]
Lux Æterna
Introduction

ex-McKinsey wonk who looks like a human version of a rat (Eric H.), Monday, 7 November 2022 16:18 (two months ago) link

TÁRRR

RRR should definitely be remade as a depressing Hungarian black and white film

jmm, Monday, 7 November 2022 16:19 (two months ago) link

Benediction [Soto OTM]

There are very few moments in life as good as this. Let's remember it.

Malevolent Arugula (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Monday, 7 November 2022 16:23 (two months ago) link

Benediction is excellent. I've been trying to convince people to watch it but they seem to think its a Merchant Ivory type movie

RRR
Benediction
Decision To Leave

Saxophone Of Futility (Michael B), Monday, 7 November 2022 17:51 (two months ago) link

Gonna watch Corsage tonight. Eric's boys in Slant liked it.

Malevolent Arugula (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Monday, 7 November 2022 17:56 (two months ago) link

Benediction
EO
The Fabelmans

عباس کیارستمی (Eric H.), Friday, 2 December 2022 15:32 (two months ago) link

i wanna see eo so goddamn bad

flamenco drop (BradNelson), Friday, 2 December 2022 15:36 (two months ago) link

Let this take sweeten the deal:

Jerzy Skolimowski's #EO doesn't "remake" Au Hasard Balthazar but replaces and dismisses the Christian allegory of Bresson's masterpiece. Nihilist critics love it. https://t.co/EhrKnkjSjk

— Armond White (@3xchair) December 2, 2022

عباس کیارستمی (Eric H.), Friday, 2 December 2022 15:38 (two months ago) link

They threw in a cardboard ladydonkey to sweeten the deal!

The Dark End of the Tweet (James Redd and the Blecchs), Friday, 2 December 2022 16:18 (two months ago) link

EO looks great.

adding Bones and All to my 3. im not sure what movie it replaces yet

billstevejim, Sunday, 4 December 2022 15:37 (two months ago) link

You need to watch Benediction, The Fabelmans, Aftersun, and Peter Von Kant

Malevolent Arugula (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Sunday, 4 December 2022 15:41 (two months ago) link

bones and all entered my top three too, 1 and 3 are still crimes of the future and mad god. mad god hopefully no. 1 on sight & sound 2032

flamenco drop (BradNelson), Sunday, 4 December 2022 16:43 (two months ago) link

Definitely need to catch Pacifiction before next week if I can

عباس کیارستمی (Eric H.), Sunday, 4 December 2022 20:10 (two months ago) link

Aftersun destroyed me. what a debut

They do the Shug a loo, do the Shy Tuna, do the Kemba Walker (fionnland), Sunday, 4 December 2022 20:14 (two months ago) link

Same. While we're editing, I'll add that, and maybe We're All Going to the World's Fair, which I wasn't sure would have the same effect on rewatch but pretty much did.

sloop johnnin' skater (geoffreyess), Sunday, 4 December 2022 21:49 (two months ago) link

My FFCC nomination ballot:

Benediction
Aftersun
Decision to Leave

Malevolent Arugula (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Monday, 12 December 2022 12:17 (one month ago) link

I love this thread, because three movies forces folks to focus, and people like me, who don't get to see nearly as many movies a year as they'd like (but still lots!) get a better lay of the (ILX) land than I would from a, say, top 50 movies of the year list. For example, I recall reading positive reviews of "Aftersun" months ago, but I more or less forgot about it, so now it's back toward the top of my "must watch" list.

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 12 December 2022 13:17 (one month ago) link

Crimes of the Future
How to Blow Up a Pipeline
RRR

Murgatroid, Monday, 12 December 2022 15:02 (one month ago) link

Causeway
I Love My Dad
Apollo 10 1/2: A Space Age Childhood

Lots still to see, of course; in terms of prioritizing what to watch, I am definitely feeling Josh’s xpost.

Decision to Leave is a really dazzling film.

Chris L, Sunday, 22 January 2023 09:12 (one week ago) link

visually and as an acting showcase, sure, contrivance of the narrative felt a bit hokey tho, guess it was a vehicle for the visual poetry or whatever

saw Enys Men yesterday, that might be more of a 2023 film but would be close to or at the top of my 2022 list, obv owes a lot to its UK cinema forebears (shades of Under The Skin, Penda's Fen blah blah) but also came off as a far-more-successful take on the Upstream Color slow sound-games, hopefully with a better IRL ending between director and actor as well

Crimes of the Future
Corsage
Hit the Road

Cherish, Sunday, 22 January 2023 13:09 (one week ago) link
