The Tale of Iya has some support here already, glad to see another fan!
I was pleasantly surprised that it made its way into DtC.
Hopefully The Works and Days (of Tayoko Shiojiri in the Shiotani Basin) will see some distribution eventually, I think it might appeal to the same crowd (provided they're not put off by the runtime).

Welcome, Dinah!

I'm working on the TSPDT 1000 list myself (172 to go for platinum). Just saw Platform about two weeks ago and really enjoyed it! I really have to watch more of Jia's films. Still life (2006) is one of my all-time favourites.

Hi, everyone. I'm an up-and-coming cinephile with roughly 2400 checks so far. I had been using Letterboxd for all of my film obsessing, but I heard good things about ICM and figured I would give it the old college try.

My long-term goals are completing the Criterion / Eclipse collection, completing the 1001 Films to See Before You Die list (including films from previous versions), and reaching 10,000 checks with at least 80% features.

Thanks. I have other hobbies, but I try to watch at least two films every day. I only got really serious about film last year, so my numbers aren't where they could be. I have friends in my age group who have seen exponentially more films than I have.

Thanks! I guess I should give some indicator of my taste in film. My top 10 changes frequently as I see more movies, but here's the current iteration:

01. Synecdoche, New York (2008, Charlie Kaufman)
02. Boyhood (2014, Richard Linklater)
03. Li'l Quinquin (2014, Bruno Dumont)
04. Magnolia (1999, Paul Thomas Anderson)
05. 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968, Stanley Kubrick)
06. Taxi Driver (1976, Martin Scorsese)
07. American Pop (1981, Ralph Bakshi)
08. Blow Out (1981, Brian De Palma)
09. Natural Born Killers (1994, Oliver Stone)
10. julien donkey-boy (1999, Harmony Korine)

I just saw Bringing Out the Dead a few days ago and am considering placing it somewhere in the 7-10 range.

Hello!

I'm not too sure what this says about your taste in movies.. There's a couple here I'm not too familiar with, but, the ones I've seen are quite different. The closest thing I can gather, is you gravitate towards horror? If that's the case, you're not alone here.

Yeah, I am a big fan of the genre.
