  2. Here's the promised spreadsheet in Google Docs, which is currently view-only. If you'd like more than just viewing access, PM me your Google account name and I'll give you full access — you can make whatever updates you see fit (filling in years and directors, adding genres, etc.). The only thing that might be slightly confusing: Years that the film didn't make the list are notated with a "999" rather than a blank space or a "no." Trust me, it's a lot easier that way when writing queries. Dale

  4. Actually, one more, since I just thought of it (and it's easy to implement). The top 20 films in A&F history, ranked by the sum of their placements in 2005, 2006, 2010, and 2011: 1. Ordet (11 points) 2. Passion of Joan of Arc, The (13 points) 3. Decalogue, The (16 points) 4. Son, The (24 points) 5. Au Hasard Balthazar (27 points) 6. Gospel According to Matthew, The (28 points) 7. Babette’s Feast (29 points) 8. Andrei Rublev (38 points) 9. Diary of a Country Priest, The (43 points) 10. Ikiru (46 points) 11. Seventh Seal, The (52 points) 12. Sunrise: A Song of Two Hum
  5. My last one for right now, unless anyone has any quick requests: By decade: 1920s: 3 1930s: 3 1940s: 6 1950s: 19 1960s: 12 1970s: 7 1980s: 13 1990s: 12 2000s: 25 Dale
  6. 207 films have been on the A&F Top 100 at one time or another. The number of times each of those films has been on the list: 5 times: 34 films 4 times: 16 films 3 times: 24 films 2 times: 61 films 1 time: 72 films Dale
  7. Comeback Kids (2011-list films off since the 2004 or 2005 lists): 2001: A Space Odyssey (90 on 2005 list) Amadeus (97 on 2005 list) Code Unknown (2004 list) Dale
  8. Disprovers (worse each list): Breaking the Waves (50 to 59 to 99 to off) Day of Wrath (24 to 29 to 42 to 45) Diary of a Country Priest (4 to 5 to 11 to 23) Rosetta would also be on the list (1 to 33 to 82 to off) except that it wasn't on the first, unranked list. Dale
  9. Improvers (better each list): Andrei Rublev (18 to 10 to 8 to 2) Three Colors Trilog (28 to 17 to 15 to 14) Tokyo Story (64 to 57 to 21 to 19) I'm surprised it's only three. Dale

  15. All right, all right. Since PTC and SDG (on Facebook) are prodding me, assuming I find my old spreadsheet, I'll do the statistics for the 2011 list as well. But then I'm leaving A&F. Forever. Or until I come back. M. Dale
  16. That's pretty tough to dispute. And apparently deceased. M. Dale Prins is dead. Dead tired of you thinking he's not alive. Dale, who's a 78-year-old woman, dang it
  17. Unless something else comes out in the next few months, the first officially published piece of Sufjan Stevens sheet music will be... ...a handbell arrangement of "The World's Columbian Exposition," i.e. the first half of "Come On! Feel the Illinoise!" Arranged and published by moi. Yay. Much thanks to Sufjan and Brother Danielson's dad. Dale
  18. After rereading the thread (but before seeing your comment), I went back to rewatch those seconds, and: Hey! It's Persona! At (what I assume was) Cornerstone! Dale
  19. Actual grade (thank you, Netflix on demand): B. Ron's review on page 2 of this thread, Danielson-hating excepted, was pretty spot-on; "ordinary" is, unfortunately, a good descriptor of the doc. Boo. Dale
  20. Yes. All people who have ever written in cursive are girls. No, but it's not the type of thing you would usually mention at the top of a song unless you were ensure your audience knew that your protagonist was either (a) a girl or ( a writer. And which one Sufjan was aiming for is completely clear in my eyes ears. Uh. Other than the one I've already discussed, two of those songs are obviously about Jesus, one involves a hetrosexual protag almost getting to second base, and one can only be used to establish Stevens as gay only if it can also be used to establish him as a serial murde
  21. And in "To Be Alone With You" they see Sufjan being in love with guy who likes climb trees. Dale, who isn't completely sure he's making this up
  22. People say he's got to be gay, and it's usually based on a completely wack intepretation of "The Predatory Wasp of the Palisades Is Out to Get Us!" I mean, c'mon: He gives us two clues in the first three lines that the narrator is a girl ("I write in cursive"; "wearing...leg warmers"). Not that I know he's not gay, but people's reason for thinking so is stupid. Dale
  23. It's always had a comma, I believe. And, not coincidentally, "Never place a period where God has placed a comma" has been one the mainstays in both UCC churches I've worked at during the past three years. (Actually, they were both Congregational churches, but both were part of the UCC.) Also, that ad is stupid. Dale
  24. Yep. I do vaguely remember that joke (or a similar one) being used in one of the Muppet films, but it was more important to the film I'm thinking of. Three for three. I can't imagine why no one's gotten the first; I thought it was the easiest of the lot. Dale
