Keep ur list in one post and ill tally them up in september, feel free 2 edit until sep. 1st!!

i am not going to be pedantic as to what constitutes a movie so i will not be stopping u from voting for twin peaks the return if that is what is truly in ur heart

Hell yes, I was hoping for this! I’m trying to think hard about my choices without getting too lost in second guessing.

L’Atalante (1934)
Ali: Fear Eats the Soul (1974)
Close Up (1990)
Hyenas (1992)
The River (1997)
Happy Together (1997)
Beau Travail (1999)
Magnolia (1999)
Yi Yi (2000)
Still Life (2006)

Seconding:

Feeling the rhythm of the night, I have cut Vivre Sa Vie (1962) for Beau Travail (1999).

I was going to suggest the same thing. There are a good deal of films mentioned already that I almost picked myself, so it wouldn’t be an arbitrary thing for me.

hmmmm ok we can have ten spots for personal lists and five to bump other ppls picks up, it makes sense imo bc im sure a few people have contemplated “what ten movies would i put on a sight & sound poll” before and tastes here will probs run much wider than something like that which is both a) drawing from a much wider pool of lists b) obvs centered around The Classics to some extent

I guess those are both very on the nose and probably not a configuration any other living person would produce

Yojimbo
Repo Man
8 1/2
Dune (1984)
The Thing (1982)
Aguirre
Hollywood Shuffle
Hard Boiled
Pi
Time Bandits

Amazing lists everyone. @u_u Ah good choice, I haven’t seen the Murnau one for a long time but the Herzog film is quite different. I almost went with Aguirre for some Herzog but @scratchmonkey beat me to it!
