Like how conservative or how totally idiosyncratic would you let your list get?

The Godfather Parts II & III as one entry, just to fuck with them

Mosquepanik at Ground Zero (abanana), Saturday, 11 September 2010 20:16 (nine years ago) link

I'd probably exclude all three movies as one entry.

Eric H., Saturday, 11 September 2010 23:15 (nine years ago) link

is there any particular criteria for the ballot?

a cankle of rads (Gukbe), Saturday, 11 September 2010 23:17 (nine years ago) link

Someone put a TV commercial on their ballot in '02, so I'd say not.

Eric H., Saturday, 11 September 2010 23:19 (nine years ago) link

depressing as hell and sign o the times to think anyone here could vote in the sight and sound poll (is this how vertigo leapfrogged rules of the game???)

balls, Sunday, 12 September 2010 00:50 (nine years ago) link

if i was voting i'm pretty sure my ballot would be very conservative (serving the poll's purpose - establishing film's canon - and usefulness - for 13-15 year olds who care about film criticism). it would give a somewhat misleading picture of my taste (if not my judgment) and i'd be amazed if two movies post-1970 made the list.

Zeno, Sunday, 12 September 2010 01:52 (nine years ago) link

My pretend ballot:

1. Nashville (1975)
2. Rosemary's Baby (1968)
3. The Godfather I & II (1972/74)
4. Double Indemnity (1944)
5. Spellbound (2002)
6. Sweet Smell of Success (1957)
7. Goin' Down the Road (1970)
8. The Conversation (1974)
9. Boogie Nights (1997)
10. Zodiac (2007)

I’ve been circulating variations on this list for a long time. I tend to reshuffle the same 25 or so films, adding a couple of new ones every few years, and I often end up listing things past the point where I’m actually sick of them. So while I know the last two picks especially wouldn’t endear me to Ozu lovers, at least they’re sort of new.

8.5--I love the look of that. It’s like making reference to 84/7 Angry Men.

clemenza, Sunday, 12 September 2010 03:09 (nine years ago) link

ok slight digression - can anyone explain to me 12 angry men's continuing high placement on imdb's top 250. i can only figure that it's not prominent enough to draw challops or ppl determined to take it down a peg but widely seen enough to get votes (i'm picturing a huge segment of it's high ratings coming from high schoolers who had to watch it in class and were surprised they actually liked it) but this describes A LOT of movies and every other old movie there - casablanca, some hitchcocks, citizen kane, to kill a mockingbird, etc - is pretty much what you might guess would pop up if you polled a million or so people on the internet.

balls, Sunday, 12 September 2010 03:51 (nine years ago) link

Five Easy Pieces, Taxi Driver, Rushmore, and Rear Window are all part of that revolving-door group of films that go onto and drop off my Top 10. (McCabe & Mrs. Miller also, to a certain extent, although there are three other Altmans ahead of it.) I'm very happy to see Zodiac on someone else's list, but I'd be very surprised if it gets a single vote in 2012.

finished tied for 4th in the voice's best of decade poll so i could imagine it getting a vote though yeah no way it's hitting the top ten.
re: purposes of poll, along w/ of course the intense and unexplained rage and resentment i feel towards the british film institute apparently, i think these kind of polls can have a certain usefulness as a taking stock of criticial cw, tracking of cw over the years (bicycle thieves was #1 in the first poll and hasn't appeared in the top ten in decades), but most esp as establishing as a sort of guide to adolescents just picking up a love for film - 'seek out and familiarize yrself w/ these movies'. the first time i watched the rules of the game i know it was because of the sight and sound poll. caring a very great deal about the sight and sound poll, giving it a LOT of weight when you're 14 = understandable, maybe something to be encouraged. caring a very great deal about the sigh and sound poll, giving it a LOT of weight when you're an adult = being the filmnerd version of the type of person who freaks out for days that 'gold soundz' won the pfork poll, unbecoming. when you're an adult the individual ballots are where the fun is (there isn't a list here that's not gonna be more interesting than the actual top ten), when you're an adolescent the main poll is what matters.

Absolutely, which is why, had I a ballot, I have to assume I'd be way more idiosyncratic and personal about my picks than strategic (i.e. putting Rules of the Game on my ballot and snubbing Citizen Kane, Vertigo and Potemkin in order to hopefully push the Renoir up in the rankings).

Am I reading this wrong, or did you mean the opposite, that you'd be more strategic if you had a ballot? Even if I did have a ballot, I'd just vote for my favorites. The Godfathers would do quite well with or without me, and I don't know that there's anything else from my floating group of 25 where a single vote would make a difference. To impact the results, I'd literally have to start voting for stuff I like rather than love.

Really want to see the Bing. Maybe Warhol, one day I'll catch a screening at the ICA (where else?)

xyzzzz__, Wednesday, 28 June 2017 18:33 (two years ago) link

I have actually attended a 'live' screening of Chelsea Girls at the Scala, with two screens running, but I'm afraid I only lasted abt an hour. Also think C4 screened it once, so there are probably bootlegs of that out there (the bootlegs of Ranaldo and Clara - unaccountably missing from the S&S list! - are derived from a single screening on C4 in the 1980s).

And I've tried to watch The Travelling Players at home a couple of times, but have never managed to get very far with it - all the spatial/temporal play seems to demand a cinema viewing.

The other film on the S&S list that took me a few attempts was, oddly, Cassavetes' Faces, which really is exhausting viewing.

Bernie Lugg (Ward Fowler), Wednesday, 28 June 2017 18:51 (two years ago) link

I saw Travelling Players on a laptop screen. I loved it and yes I'm sure its even more of a trip on the big screen.

The ICA have screened Chelsea Girls a few times but I could never turn up on those days.

Faces is exhausting and I would've said my favourite by him however I caught a screening of Love Streams recently and that's better, the heavy emotional range is presented in a more even manner (if such a thing can be said about a Cassavetes film).

xyzzzz__, Wednesday, 28 June 2017 19:57 (two years ago) link

There is something quite magic about the period feel of City Of Sadness, sort of like an epic colour addition to Rossellini's war trilogy or summat. it really is a great movie.
