Join in striking out 2011 films as you see them! If enough of us participate again, we might want to pin this thread at the top.

To make things easier for you to join in, here are templates to the Top 100 and the Top 25 Horror.

Link to last year's striking, "Exloring the List 2010."

Today I've seen 61 of the Top 100 -- nine of the Top Ten, sixteen of the Top Twenty. Of the thirty-nine I haven't seen, I'm familiar with half, but not intimately connected with, or it has been a few too many years.

I did well at keeping up with Striking Out films that I hadn't seen as I went along last year, but unfortunately I only saw twelve of of those thirty-or-so films. I am making a commitment in 2011 to do better than that. Most likely I will take a month or two this Spring to track down as many of these titles as I can.

Added to this year's "Exploring the List" is the Horror Top 25, which follows. (I've seen eighteen of those twenty-five.)

2011 Top 100

7 Gospel According to Matthew , The (Il vangelo second Matteo) *
11 Mirror, The (Zerkalo)
18 Searchers, The (1956)
19 Tokyo Story ("Tokyo monogatari") (1953) *
24 Bicycle Thief, The (“Ladri di biciclette”) *
25 Man for All Seasons, A (1966) * Watched an hour or so. Eeeeh.
27 Paths of Glory (1957)
30 Into Great Silence ("Le grand silence") (2005) *
32 Apu Trilogy (Pather Panchali, Aparajito, Apu Sansar) (1955, 1956, 1959)
33 Flowers of St. Francis ("Francesco, Guillare de Dio") (1950)
34 Nights of Cabiria (1957)
38 Straight Story, The (1999)
44 Black Narcissus (1947) *
47 Close-Up ("Nema-ye Nazdik") (1990)
50 Burmese Harp , The (1956)
52 Places in the Heart (1984)
54 Still Life ("Sanxia haoren") (2006)
57 Eureka (2000)
58 Heartbeat Detector ("La question humaine") (2007) *
60 Playtime (1967) *
62 Rashômon (1950) *
64 My Night at Maud's ("Ma nuit chez Maud")(1969)
65 Becket (1964) *
70 Lawrence of Arabia (1962)
71 Koyaanisqatsi (1982)
72 Paris, Texas (1984) Probably the one I most want to see right now
74 How Green Was My Valley (1941)
76 M (1931) *
78 Days of Heaven (1978) Have seen about half. Library's got the Criterion.
79 Crimes and Misdemeanors (1989) *
80 Paprika (2006) Still going to see this but what I've seen so far is awful.
81 Floating Weeds ("Ukigusa") (1959)
84 Syndromes and a Century ("Sang sattawat") (2006)
85 After Life (“Wandafuru raifu”) (1999)
87 Trial, The (1962) *
89 Sullivan's Travels (1941)
93 Spirit of the Beehive, The (El espíritu de la colmena) * Began last year. Seemed great.
94 Early Summer ("Bakushû") (1951)
96 Fiddler on the Roof (1971)

Top Horror 25

5 Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1931)
11 Peeping Tom (1960) *
15 I Walked with a Zombie (1943)
18 Freaks (1932)
22 Dracula (1931) *
24 Curse of the Demon (1957)
25 Onibaba (1964) * Began for Halloween viewings in 2012, just wasn't into it.

* Available on Netflix Instant Viewing

Also, as a reference, here's a Link to a list some of us have been keeping up with, striking out films from last decade we missed but would still like to see.

Horror I haven't seen (or don't really remember and should see again)
5 Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1931)
9 The Fly (1986)
14 The Thing (1982)
15 I Walked with a Zombie (1943)
19 Alien (1979)
21 Don’t Look Now (1974)
22 Dracula (1931)
24 Curse of the Demon (1957)

Top 100 I haven't seen
21 Tender Mercies (1983)
32 Apu Trilogy (Pather Panchali, Aparajito, Apu Sansar) (1955, 1956, 1959)
33 Flowers of St. Francis ("Francesco, Guillare de Dio") (1950)
44 Black Narcissus (1947)
52 Places in the Heart (1984)
57 Eureka (2000)
60 Playtime (1967)
71 Koyaanisqatsi (1982)
97 Fiddler on the Roof (1971)

Other than the Apu trilogy and Eureka, those should all be pretty easy to get to.

Just for the record, I'm going to go easy on myself and count a film as "seen" even if I saw it in university back in the '80s and I barely remember anything about it.

So, with that caveat out of the way, my own list of yet-to-be-seen contenders is:

  • A&F Top 100:
  • 6. Make Way For Tomorrow
  • 20. La Promesse
  • 28. Grave of the Fireflies
  • 32. two-thirds of the Apu trilogy
  • 50. The Burmese Harp (can't remember whether I've seen this)
  • 51. Stroszek
  • 52. Places in the Heart
  • 54. Still Life (Sanxia haoren)
  • 56. The Death of Mr. Lazarescu
  • 57. Eureka
  • 58. The Heartbeat Detector
  • 64. My Night at Maud's (can't remember whether I've seen this)
  • 69. Faust
  • 72. Paris, Texas
  • 73. My Life to Live
  • 74. How Green Was My Valley (and I actually OWN this one!)
  • 76. M
  • 80. Paprika
  • 81. Floating Weeds (can't remember whether I've seen this)
  • 84. Syndromes and a Century (Sang sattawat)
  • 87. The Trial
  • 93. The Spirit of the Beehive (El espíritu de la colmena)
  • 94. Early Summer (can't remember whether I've seen this)
  • 98. Ratcatcher

    A&F Top 25 Horror:
  • 2. Vampyr
  • 5. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
  • 8. Night of the Living Dead
  • 20. Eraserhead
  • 24. Curse of the Demon
  • 25. Onibaba

Anyone have a DVD copy of Ponette or Eureka you'd be willing to lend?


I've watched Ponette on YouTube.

I've got several left yet to see, more from the horror list, which is not surprising. I never could get to After Life on the previous T100--it's not on Netflix for some reason. It's probably the film on this list I'd like to see the most. Otherwise, I am most looking forward to Curse of the Demon and Repulsion.

Top 100

71 Koyaanisqatsi (1982)
80 Paprika (2006)
85 After Life (“Wandafuru raifu”) (1999)
96 Fiddler on the Roof (1971)
98 Ratcatcher (1999)

Horror

5 Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1931)
6 Let Me In (2010)/Let the Right One In (2008)
9 The Fly (1986)
11 Peeping Tom (1960)
13 Repulsion (1965)
20 Eraserhead (1976)
24 Curse of the Demon (1957)
25 Onibaba (1964)

That's weird. I know I've streamed After Life from Netflix at least once, but not even the DVD is available now. The same thing has happened with the Dardennes' La Promesse.

Those are both New Yorker releases, so I assume their streaming contract with Netflix ran out. Films are constantly being added to and removed from the streaming catalog.

Wow. Thanks for pointint that out. It has been quite a few years but I remember loving this one. Perhaps that's a good place for me to begin in my use of April/May to catch up with the ones I missed.

So far, Darren H. looks like he's in first place with 13. I'm in second with 11 and am finding all this highly worth the effort.

I am in third with eight, nine if you count my "eeeeh" for A Man For All Seasons. I am certain torture is a natural part of life, i might go back to it again some day.

Oh, and ten if you count Ponette, but I didn't list it.
