Any thoughts on the new 21st century list?

It's a strange mix, but it does encompass a wide variety of this century's most celebrated films, and it's hard to argue that any film in the top 100 doesn't have a strong reason for being there (and I have championed many that climbed into that elite group), even though quite a few don't really appeal to me.

2010 films soared, and Women directors climbed, as did gender themes. Lucrecia Martel has only made 4 films, but they are all in the top 150, and 3 are in the top 86.

I think that the end of decade lists helped bump more recent films a lot higher than usual this year.

Of those that dropped out of the top 1000, the only 4 that I miss are:

Sex & Lucia (in my top 50 of the century)
Time of the Wolf (in my top 100)
Vertical Ray of the Sun (top 200)
Revanche (top 300)

What I find interesting in the drop offs list is Chi-Raq. I have not watched it, but I remember seeing it on at least one best of the decade list. Thought that would be enough to solidify it’s place in this list.

Millennium Actress falling off the list is quite sad. I figured that would be a mainstay rather than a fringe selection that was at risk of falling off (as it did).

Somewhat surprised that Once Upon a Time in Hollywood debuted as high as it did.

I didn’t care much for Booksmart and while I know it got decent reviews I didn’t expect it to be one of the new entrants, and it’s not like it “barely” squeezed in either.
I’m to remember every man I've seen fall into a plate of spaghetti???

I agree about Booksmart.

I looked for the list for Chi-Raq and it showed up on the best of the decade on Slant.

It seems Slant is not factored into his calculations, as their best of the decade list also includes Bisbee ‘17, The Strange Little Cat, and The Treasure (as examples). None of these made the list. You would expect most of them to qualify after placing in a best of decade poll.

Eugene Green and Philippe Grandrieux both getting two new entries on the list is pretty cool.... can't nominate them for Doubling now though...

It's a good starting point for people who've been living under a rock for the past 20 years, but as a list very few really interesting films on there. A mostly middle-of-the-road mix of popular mainstream and arthouse cinema.

Rankings have updated. I lost 15 checks (overall) and fell 47 places in the rankings on the list. I kept my Bronze though, which is one of the things that I was aiming to do, having only achieved it midway through last year.

Not to be overly pedantic, but it is called "The 21st Century's Most Acclaimed Films", if it wasn't a mix of popular mainstream and arthouse cinema that cinephiles should have heard of, unless they've been living under a rock for the past 20 years, it would be doing something wrong. ;)

(And to be fair, I can spot films that don't ring a bell)

I would say the main purpose is to say, hey, that film you skipped, maybe you should see it afterall.

For instance, I have still not seen Margaret, which is now in the top 100, need to get around to that.

You have missed some of my very favorite films of the 21st century.

Those in the top 100 I haven't seen:

Spirited Away- Animation is not really my thing, but I have every intention of seeing this one day
Tropical Malady- Not so crazy about AW, but this one of his is next on my list to see
Tie Xi Qu- Would like to see it, but not easy to find or make time for
A.I. Artificial Intelligence- I've seen enough Spielberg to last me a lifetime. even started this one, once...
Colossal Youth- Not easy to find, but I will track it down one day
Goodbye Dragon Inn- I'll get around to this one evening when I'm in the right mood
The Dark Knight- Not a fan of super hero movies
Goodbye to Language- Have to be in the mood to deal with Godard
Leviathan- Really looking forward to this one
In Vanda's Room- Not easy to find, and not the Costa film highest on my to see list
Inglorious Bastards- feel about Tarantino much the way I feel about Spielberg these days, though I did see his most recent one on the plane
Blissfully Yours- If I like Tropical Malady, I'll look for this one
Toy Story 3- One day when my babies get older

Favorites: I have 35 on DVD, which is about 10% of my collection.

Most overrated:
Mad Max: Fury Road- Played like a video game demo to me
Lost in Translation- Used to be #1, here. Not bad, but not even close to one of the best films of the 21st century
Moulin Rouge- don't get me started

Seen 40 of the new, 27 of the drop-offs, for a net +13; then I watched Midsommar last night so up 14 now to 562. Top films unseen:

13. Holy Motors
14. The Turin Horse
27. Tiexi qu
52. Still Life
55. Colossal Youth

I don't really consciously work on this list but I would like to see all of the above, and finish off the top 100 this year. It's surprising that I haven't seen the first two there given that I really love both directors but I guess I've never actually been the completist I want to be.

Happiest to see show up:

Your Name
Little Women
An Elephant Sitting Still
The Irishman
Madeline's Madeline


All too low IMO apart from the Scorsese - and he doesn't need more glory anyway - but still nice.

Sorriest to see depart:

The Limits of Control
Millenium Actress
Dracula: Pages from a Virgin's Diary
Mind Game
Chi-Raq


Only the first of these is on the level of the first four of the new films I'm happy about, and overall I definitely have more favorites/strong likes among the new films than the drop-offs, so I can't be too unhappy.

You, what? That's actually my uncontested #1 film of the century. :facepalm:

Okay, okay, to be completely fair my10 highest unseen looks like this :blink: :

1. Tropical Malady (I saw Uncle Boonme which was nice but didn't instill a great urge to watch any of his other films)
2. Turin Horse (Never seen a Bela Tarr film still)
3. Tiexi qu
4. The Death of Mr. Lazarescu
5. Werckmeister Harmonies
6. Still Life (will hopefully watch soon)
7. Y Tu Mamá También (if I liked Cuaron more I would have seen it ages ago)
8. Colossal Youth
9. Once Upon a Time in Anatolia (saw Uzak in fall, excited to see others)
10. Zama (Never seen a single Martel film, need to watch all of them)

My overall count of unseen films in the top 100 is 22.
You have missed some of my very favorite films of the 21st century.
I hope so, I have high expectations for all of them except Tropical Malady.
I added some comments to my OP above.

I'm surprised by how high some of the new films are.

Any thoughts on the new 21st century list?
It's a good starting point for people who've been living under a rock for the past 20 years, but as a list very few really interesting films on there. A mostly middle-of-the-road mix of popular mainstream and arthouse cinema.
Not to be overly pedantic, but it is called "The 21st Century's Most Acclaimed Films", if it wasn't a mix of popular mainstream and arthouse cinema that cinephiles should have heard of, unless they've been living under a rock for the past 20 years, it would be doing something wrong. ;)
Oh gee, so Onderhond is bellyaching about the establishment's take on contemporary film yet again. So fascinating tha...I.... :sleeping:

So we agree then! That's not very pedantic, is it?

One thing we can all agree on I think is that there is something for everyone here - conceptually bankrupt dramas selling Frenchness to wine mums, run of the mill hype movies, police action crime capers, and just generally a plethora of overrated arthouse poverty porn pictures. Truly a golden age of cinema.

it's way to early to pass judgement on this list. 1000 movies over 20 years is way too much. I'm rather looking forward to the list in 2100 instead

Gone from 824 to 834 thanks mainly to 2019 stuff I think (seen 18/22 of the 2019 entries). I actually thought the list would be shook up more by the decade lists.

I highly doubt I will still be watching films in 2100 :P

The top 250 from this list would more or less describe a yearly top 10-15 which is fairly descriptive of how critics have been assessing the new century so far.

These 250 (I usually pay a fair amount of attention to the top 4-500, now) represent where film is at these days, and in that sense the list is pretty accurate.

As for my personal taste, I am down with roughly 30% of the top 250-400, which is as good an affinity as with any poster on the forum.

Yes, that is called mathematics
