The other 1919 film I had favorited was The Hoodlum (Mary Pickford).

Yes, this seems to be more interesting for the diversity of titles than the sameness. Do you have anything in mind to do with this, Beavis? Not so much a popularity contest as.... darn, I want to submit another list RIGHT NOW.

Not really. It was just a fun exercise with nice results. I might take the 10 i want to watch and make them a centerpiece on my watchlist for next month... But that is about it. And by then the IFFR is happening, and that always shakes up my watchlists big time...

Another interesting observation, out of the 12 ballots, 1929 is split between USSR (7) and Germany (5).

I have a favourite from 1909 as luck would have it, so thought I'd bring that one in for fun. Sorry gloede, 1929 pick wasn't Soviet or German! Tusalava is down as UK and was made in the UK, although obviously Len Lye was from New Zealand. Country of production usually rules.

Le Moulin maudit aka The Mill (1909 - Alfred Machin)
Herr Arnes pengar aka Sir Arne's Treasure (1919 - Mauritz Stiller)
Tusalava (1929 - Len Lye)
La fin du jour (1939 - Julien Duvivier)
The History of Mr. Polly (1949 - Anthony Pelissier)
Impulses (1959 - James Davis)
Queimada aka Burn! (1969 - Gillo Pontecorvo)
Tess (1979 - Roman Polanski)
Nostos: Il ritorno aka Nostos: The Return (1989 - Franco Piavoli)
Eyes Wide Shut (1999 - Stanley Kubrick)
Amer (2009 - Hélène Cattet, Bruno Forzani)
