Both were nominated and seconded earlier today.

Yi Yi

I nominated Yi Yi already, so this can count as its second.

Wow. Look at that - I'm a day late to the party, and you've already got FOUR pages... (including many films on my list!)

Eyes Wide Shut seconded, if it hasn't already been. Glad to see Certified Copy is already through.

I nominate:

Title: Howards End

Director:James Ivory

Running Time: 140 mins

Language: English

http://uk.imdb.com/title/tt0104454/

A good film (of a better book) which is all about the marriage or reconciliation of opposites -

from people to intellectual ideas. Not quite a favourite of mine, but definitely worth a look.

-------------------------

Title: Husbands And Wives

Director: Woody Allen

Running Time: 108 mins

Language: English

http://uk.imdb.com/title/tt0104466/

Maybe Woody's last truly great film. Great cast, great script, funny, serious... it's got a lot going for it.

More nominations (I'm doing these in sets of two, because otherwise I can't post the links per regulations; some sort of trans-Atlantic glitch, maybe...)

Title: The Incredibles

Director: Brad Bird

Length: 115 mins

Language: English

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0317705/

http://artsandfaith....&hl=incredibles

Okay, strictly speaking this is more about family, but I would still argue it qualifies. More than some that have been mentioned, anyway...

------------------------------

Title: Scenes From A Marriage

Director: Ingmar Bergman

Length: 167 mins/281 tv version

Language: Swedish

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0070644/

Well, somebody had to... This certainly deserves a place on the list.

The site doesn't allow you to embed more than two videos in a single post. And it's started automatically embedding any YouTube URL in a post. As far as I know, it didn't do that before.

I nominate Eric Rohmer's _____ IN THE AFTERNOON (1972). Criterion's telling me that "LOVE" belongs in that blank, but Annie Clark and I prefer "CHLOE."

I also nominate Rossellini's VIAGGIO IN ITALIA (1953) and his STROMBOLI TERRA DI DIO (1950).

(I'll add the other stuff in a little while.)

Second The Squid and the Whale.
