Even though I nominated Comedies, I voted for Memory - I'd love to see a list about that, as well as to participate in the discussion leading up to it.

I voted for Marriage - partly because I can think of a good many films worth discussion, but also because it might be a list of real interest to others besides ourselves; it has a more universal reach than most of the other themes, plus contemporary significance.

Still, almost any of these topics would be fascinating. I can't wait!

I voted for "memory" since it's something of real interest to me academically and I think important in thinking about cinema.

But I'm pleased with "marriage" as a choice too.

I voted for marriage, but I had a thought. If we get two solid breakout topics in terms of vote count, can we go ahead and make a close second place finisher next years A&F Top 25 pick? Unless, of course, something major happens in the next 12 months that points us in another direction. Just a suggestion.

edit: It might also encourage more voting. I know sometimes folks may read through a thread before voting, and see that one topic has a full head of steam, and not bother to vote for another topic.
