What is the Weir count? Can't you at least give us that?

I wouldn't be surprised if that were the case, and it wouldn't necessarily rankle me. Is that at least a record for amounts of voters?

"Twenty-six of the entries had been seen by less that 20% of the survey participants.
Ten of the entries had been seen by less than 10% of the survey participants."

I can't wrap my head around the mathematics of this. So there are 36 films on the list that have been seen by less than 20% of the people that voted. Would this then mean that out of everyone who has seen these films, an overwhelming majority voted for their inclusion?

We'll see...there are some painful losses of (EXTREMELY) popular films, too, and Star Wars did not make it back on the list, so it's not like we've gone mainstream or anything.

The average # of votes received by an entry is 55, or around 30%. Here's a graph; the black line is a trendline.

What's the y-variable "Number of Entries/Film" mean?

I take back what I said about the #2 English-language film. It's definitely at #15. The top English-language film is at #3. Neither is The Apostle.

My guesses for the top English language films: Chariots of Fire and Magnolia.
