Arts & Faith Top 25 Films on "Waking Up" Nominations Thread

Recommended Posts

I read the rules in the opening post, but I thought the precedent was no movies from the previous calendar year, to avoid overenthusing about recent releases.

That was something I was a bit confused about, considering the way we did past lists.  But then, most of our past lists nominations were begun towards the end of a year and continued into the following year - for example, nominations for horror began in 2010 and ended in 2011, so we excluded films that came out in 2010.  Did we allow 2016 films because these nominations began in 2017?

That was my thinking.

We can adjust that depending on consensus.

No, I wouldn't adjust.  The allowance makes sense, since we did start after the new year.  I think we did the same thing with Top 25 Films on Memory, since that list wasn't compiled beginning in one year and concluding in another.

I think the confusion may have come about because we started discussing possible topics in late 2016.

I *knew* someone would nominate Fearless.

Second Gaslight.

Isn't narrative structure enough of an ideology for art? (Greg Wright)
