I have him at #1 and I forgot to vote. That explains some of it I guess. I don't know how many points a #1 vote is worth but it would be interesting to see if he still would have dropped and how much.

I also had Godard at #12 though I'm fairly sure that alone would not push him back into the top 25.

Edit: Btw did Rivette make the cut at all or did I just miss him?
While maybe not keeping him in the top 25, both votes would have made a massive difference.

Damn it, Tobias! ;)

(Do vote next year!!!)

Rivette landed on 90.

A #1 vote is worth 15 points :)

Rivette is #90, 5 ranks lower than last year, despite my new #2 vote :angry:

In that case, Rohmer would have gotten 228.68 points, and would only have moved from 33rd to 30th.

Perhaps it's time to devise some sort of system of escalating punishment for those who year after year do not place Rohmer in their top 10.

Interesting. I'd expect Kieslowski not as high and Ozu even higher. Werner Herzog I almost forgot at all ..

Endgame!

Before this poll, I never knew how colossal Murnau & Ray were. Neat.

Maybe KKD and Woody Allen weren't even metoo'd in our poll, as Polanski climbed to his highest rank so far for 2020 & 2021 .. :o

(I have the feeling he might be a bit overrated here, let's see who outranks him.)

Perhaps even more prominent trademarks: aestheticized violence, lots of babbling and ripping off cult hits drawing inspiration from the rich vastness of genre cinema :whistling:

Also, in his last few films, alternate histories of real-life events that are "cool" but nothing beyond that.

:wub: Winner of the hearts: David Lynch has 3 #1-votes, 2x #2 and 2x #3. Tarantino has 9 Top-5-votes, among them several #1 to #3.
Fritz lang got no higher votes than #2, #6 and #9 (once each), but still ranks higher. Orson Welles got neither a #1 or a #2 but of course still ends up as a heavyweight of this poll (no pun here :rolleyes: ).

Ozu has 3 #1s. All from people with impeccable taste too.
