Mike, thanks for making my last post look trivial.

Impossible, as he only directed 12 filmswink.gif  (And that's including his short films and his TV work!)

Thanks Peter, adding to my foolish appearance with Michael. Of course, I hope we realize that he would be the director that appears most on my list of the 37 unseen top 100 movies and it is quite irresponsible of me not to have seen any Tarkovsky.

Why, o why do I post.

Because you get to hang out with the cool crowd that way.

-s.

PS I haven't counted in a long time but I think I've only seen 60 or 70 of those myself... I can't believe John made it a goal to hit 100 and made it. Congrats, John!

A Man for All Seasons lingered for a while. I actually watched it by accident a while ago, realizing later it was on this Top 100 list. Quite a dashing little film. I caught The Bad Lieutenant on BBC the same way.

The Wind Will Carry Us seems to be a hard one to find, but it is coming out soon on a Region 2 DVD. If we ever revise the list, I will want to push for Kiarostami's Where is the Friend's House?, it was equally as stirring.

The Year of Living Dangerously is my favorite film discovered through this list, it is worth watching his earlier film The Last Wave if you can find it.

I suppose it speaks well for the list that in the course of catching up on a list of "must see" films I accidentally filled my gaps on this one.

You beat me to it!  AUGH!  I think you beat EVERYONE to it--...

So what are you up to now, Alan? You must be pretty darn close. If WERCKMEISTER and BALTHASAR are your only hold-outs, you can cut that in half now that Criterion's releasing the donkey movie. I watched it yesterday. Beautiful.

Tried watching NIGHT OF THE HUNTER tonight. Sleepy, had to bail 30 minutes in - just wasn't doing it for me. I'll take part of the blame - as I said, I was sleepy.

I only have... 78 left. Looking forward to the Tarkovsky and remaining Dreyer. I'm semi-sad to say that some of the stuff on the list doesn't interest me at all. The next film from the Top 100 I'll knock off will probably be Sunrise, Passion of Joan of Arc or Au Hasard Balthazar.

Dang, Ron, among the 30 films you've yet to see are ten or fifteen of my all-time favorite films.  I envy your getting to see them for the first time.

Saved the best til last!

Yeah, it's going to be one sweet cinematic summer...

Hello everyone,

I just signed up today - look forward to joining in - looks like a good group, and what a great list!

As I noted in my first post (over in general discussion - still learning my way around here - be patient with the newbie technophobe), I was struck by how much overlap there is between my own Top 100 and your 2004 list - 23 shared titles! (and 16 more are in my Top 250).

Anyway, walking in the door here, I had seen 77.

Anyone friendly out there want to help me get up to speed?

Cheers.

Welcome jubu, nice to have you on board. 77 coming in from the cold is pretty impressive. I've been cultivated by the folks here and I'm still only on about 60.

Alright, as I've gone back to see what I've missed, I have a question about one of the titles - at number 88 we have Les Mis, but I am confused as to which version of the film is on our list. Looking at the initial announcement, here, the 1995 Lelouch version is listed, yet when I click on the title from the list linked to our front page, I get this.

So I am confused. Which version does our list contain, the 1995 Lelouch or the 1998 August?

I am officially ashamed - of the 2005 list, I have seen only 23.

That certainly does help me put in context just how much catching up I have to do.
