I know it didn't make it last time but I'd like to re-pitch for

Man, now you've said that I'm going to be singing that closing song all afternoon.

Bit of a longer list, brought over from the old discussion on what's missing:

Trembling Before G*d

Mother and Son

The Apu Trilogy: Pather Panchali, Aparajito, Apur Sansar

Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai

Cronos

Kundun

Manhattan

and disputed territory:

Raging Bull

The Jazz Singer

before 2005

I suppose this means that

Trilogy: The Weeping Meadow

qualifies? (2005 release date UK, was it 2004 US?)

Heart of Light Hope this links to post #109...

If you change the link to have the number 108 instead of 109, it will put post 109 at the top of the page, I believe.

Thanks, I fixed it.

Sorry to be thick about this, but are we starting from scratch? Do I need to renominate the films I nominated last year if they haven't already been mentioned in this thread?

Actually, I think it's too soon to put it in the top 100, but it should probably be mentioned here anyway: Millions

Wit - BTW, Alan, are we going to have a chance to make a case for our nominations? I'm ready to cajole, harangue, debate, persuade, bribe, etc., to get this film into the Top 100, so convinced am I of its merit smile.gif

Just a few... didn't see any of these but didn't look close, I hope I'm not doubling-up.

Lost and Found (sadly general lack of availability will probably sink this)

Edit: Sorry, I misread the instructions

Andrew - I'm right behind you on the fight for Wit - you're not alone.

Dan - thank you thank you thank you!!

I've probably watched 'Wit' 4 times now, and it has not lost its power for me, and I've found new material to ponder each time. We should start a thread on it, once the nomination and voting process is moving forward in earnest.

I wasn't around for last year's nomination process, so I'm not sure if a second is necessary, but the single film that I feel is the most glaring omission from the 2004 list is:

Winter Light (1963)

And while on the subject of Bergman I'll also second:

Cries and Whispers (1972)

And add:

The Silence (1963)

Some other nominations:

What Time Is It There? (2001)

Angels in America (2003)

Night and Fog (1955)

Faces (1968)

Slacker (1991)

La Notte (1961)

Vivre sa Vie (1962)

After Life (1998)

Apologies,

A I'm a technological illiterate so can't bold the titles.

B haven't posted in a while after pointless huff.

But can I put in a word for.

CENTRAL STATION.

MIRACLE IN MILAN.

WINTER LIGHT.

HEIMAT (It did get a theatrical release and DEKALOG was in before.)

IN AMERICA.

CHIHWAUSON. (Korean film by Im-Kwon Taek.)

Wonderful, Darren!

So I guess you missed my rant at the time about our relative lack of Bergman titles on the earlier list? I can't seem to pull it up using the Google search, but I did access one Bergman-related thread that, oddly enough, reminded me to nominate Sam Peckinpah's Ride the High Country.

So please consider it nominated.

I'm surprised you didn't mention it, gigi, but I wanted to put it forward for consideration anyway:

Contact (1997)

Phil.
