This could be a good introductory list instead of the actual one or just for you to watchlist it come Noirvember :guns:
Great! Thank you, dirty_score! Why not replace the current official top 100 with this one, since it just repeats the top 100 from the TSPDT top 1000 noirs which is also official?
Or we could replace the top 1000. Most people didn't want it to be official. It was actually the lowest ranked noir list in the "lists that should be official" poll in 2013 (although at the time, it was 962 instead of 1000).

Why do we have to replace everything? It seems like there's a push for just constant change. The noir lists are good. I don't care that the top 100 is an abbreviated version of the 1000. It's nice to have something more manageable.

Torgo wrote: April 28th, 2021, 9:14 pm A few too many neos on that list for my taste, but I very much agree with that reasoning. We have the exact same 100 films official twice, another Top 100 than by TSP would be an easy solution. ;)
There's also the BFI one: BFI 100 key Noir films for more "pure" noir. But the Paste lists tend to be updated so who knows when they update theirs, Blade Runner 2049 might get on the list tehe

Not the biggest fan of the genre but that list will have to remain the ultimate guide for the more advanced fans. I just think the middle list, or as you call the introductory list, could be a different one that like Paste juggles with subgenres within the genre that could provide the perfect leap for the 1000 list.

It was a list from the same source, of approximately the same size, made using the same methods, with mostly the same films. It just had a different name. I think it can be considered an older version of the same list.

TSPDT 962 noir films was ranked #170 out of 218 lists. The poll results were announced 2 days after the list was adopted.

The highest ranked noir lists were "One Hundred and One French Film Noirs" (#41) and "BFI 100 key Noir films" (#44).

Added to ICM: RadiiChina's 100 Films to Watch to Help You Understand China
In assembling the list we reached out to filmmakers, producers, distributors, curators, critics, experts and industry insiders, who gave us an eclectic mix of mainstream titles, cult classics, and deep cuts. Our goal is to give a round and deep profile of the country through the medium of films made here in the last 100 years or so. To make it easier to navigate, we’ve divided the 100 films up into 10 categories with 10 movies each.

Interesting, but also strange.

Plus, I think you have the wrong "Better Days" listed. I'm guessing it should be https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/shao+nian+de+ni/ instead of the Italian one you currently have.

It's in the "bad films" category, so maybe the Disney version is the only one that they consider bad.

Yeah, I was curious about that too. There are two other Hollywood-China co-productions in that section: The Great Matt Damon Wall and Transformers 27 4.

I dunno, they just decided to. Section on the bad films - not too long texts for each.
Each of those 3 are good examples for creative failures under contribution of Hollywood. Transformers 27 4 may be a great share more American than the other two, but I get how they play a role.

How can a festival started in 1981 have a movie from 1976 as the best entry that year? I must be missing something.

Yugoslav horror, probably just never got released in Portugal before.

From Wikipedia:
The Rat Saviour (Croatian: Izbavitelj) is a 1976 Croatian fantasy horror film directed by Krsto Papić. It was released in 1976, but won Best Film at the 1982 Fantasporto.
I guess since it was their first year they accepted films from previous years or unreleased in Portugal making it a premiere.

I have created a list with the 70 films that the Cahiers du Cinéma recently selected for their 70th anniversary.
They focused on forgotten and under-appreciated gems, especially over the 50s-70s decades, even if there are a few big names, but there is probably something to pick for anyone interested in cinéma d'auteur and how the magazine's tastes evolved over the years.

That is a pretty fucking shitty list if you ask me.

Here are some of the films missing from a list of 59 time-travel films:

La jetée
Je t'aime, je t'aime
Beyond the Time Barrier
Slaughterhouse-Five
Jubilee
(Derek Jarman)
Time Bandits
Les maîtres du temps
Planet of the Apes
- ok I see in the comments where he mentions why he skipped this; mmm, not sure I agree but it's arguable anyway.
Kin dza-dza!

Instead he's got a list that is 50% films from 2010 or later and seems populated by a lot of teen- or action-oriented obscurities. Lots of pretty crappy films on this list - 41, really? He does have 12 Monkeys but fails to mention what it's sourced from; he's also got The Lake House but doesn't bother to mention that it's a direct remake. Five of the six Terminator films, but only the first (and least-interesting, in terms of time travel) BIll and Ted?

It strikes me as a list from a guy who has just been watching a lot of films in this niche for the past year or two maybe, hasn't delved into earlier films much and maybe doesn't care to, but is arrogant enough to put up a list of 59 "Best" films without really knowing much depth about the subject at all. But hey he's got his cool little numerical system so that's something. :shifty:

It's like a film noir list made by somebody who hasn't seen Out of the Past or The Third Man, or a western list by someone unfamiliar with John Ford.

I will say this for it though - it does give me a list of a lot of films I haven't heard of from the past few years, and some of them may be worth looking into. Even bad lists can give one ideas sometimes if they've got a lot of unseen films.
