Second The Man Without a Past (I was about to do that one after this smile.png)

I don't remember the process of how we ultimately got both the Swedish and US versions of Let the Right One In and Let Me In onto the 2011 Horror list, but I thought that Solaris might present a similar situation, as both films have admirers (albeit not as many for the American version).  I'm just going to list both here.  If one or both get seconded, so be it.

Title:  Solaris (1972), (2002)

Director:  Andrei Tarkovsky (1972), Steven Soderbergh (2002)

Running Times:  165 min. (1972), 99 minutes (2002)

Strong second for 2046.

 

Second WALTZ WITH BASHIR.

 

Second Mysteries Of Lisbon (although I get the impression we're the only two here who really love it, Ryan) 

 

If you're worried, count me as a third.

 

Folks beat me to the punch on a lot of good choices (which bodes well).
