Enjoying the dialogue. Hope you don't think my comments were directed towards you, personally. I agree with what you have said about Spanish cinema from the classic period, and the fascist cloak that probably squelched their development (the same was true with Latin America) as filmmakers in the past. But like many countries stepping out of the shadows politically and economically, these places are producing artists of all kinds who have interesting things to say and ways of expressing those things that are unique to their history, and they are full of creativity perhaps precisely because they are now free from suppression.

For the longest time, almost every Spanish film I saw was somehow connected to the shadow of Franco, and the same has been true of many Latin American films, and the fact that their historical context is so much different from that of North Americans and Northern / Western Europeans probably contributes to the disconnect I have spoken about, apart from their continued marginalization in the film market, apart from a handful of filmmakers that have been adopted by arthouse circles.

For my own part, I have been very impressed by what has been coming out of Latin America (a huge continent) in the past 15 years in particular, and have done my best to pump some of my favorites in recent years. Certainly there are a few that should have been considered for this poll, especially as more than 200 films from the past 20 years made the top 1000.

As for Fellini- Not sure I fully understand his diminished stature on this board (he actually improved his high standing slightly in the latest TSP poll), but it's clear that folks here don't seem to connect to him very well, despite his influence on and affinity with various filmmakers like Ruiz who are popular here. I have posited various reasons in the past that I don't want to rehash. Suffice to say, I still consider him among the best filmmakers ever, and the King of Italian film, though being half Italian, I like quite a few others, as well.
Oh no, don't worry, I only took it as a discussion of Spanish and Latin American cinema and as I'm an expert on neither I just exemplified how I see it from my narrow vantage point.

Personally I don't see such a big disconnect with Latin American films. There are even some modern Mexican ones that have been seemlessly inducted into the pop-cannon (Pan's Labyrinth, Yu Tu Mama Tambien, probably a couple more). When I watch a Llinas film it almost feels like a European film (with La Flor it probably helps that so much of it takes place in Europe). Lucrecia Martel isn't some insane oddity either. You could maybe even talk me into believing some of these films were German if I didn't know them (especially Stellet Licht is an easy example). This isn't to say there are no oddities or that I feel entirely at home in popular Brazilian cinema or that Cinema Novo isn't a thing, etc., etc. but their general attitude towards narrative seems entirely familiar in a way e.g. Japanese films rarely do even if they entirely follow Western conventions. Maybe part of the issue is just that people outside of Latin America don't watch them. It feels like many of them would be extremely accesible to the entire "Western World". They probably also suffer from an issue in attracting capital but honestly, so does Europe for a lot of films. Petzold makes films for what, 1 or 2 million? And he's if not Germany's best working director, at least the most consistently good for 2 decades. I'm a bit astounded actually how Llinas got La Flor financed. Is he some secret millionaire or does he simply have very rich friends? I can't imagine it turning a profit. Yeah and if you don't have capital you don't have stars, you don't have expensive SFX, you don't have a multi-million add campaign you only have word of mouth, some people claiming it's a pretty good film. That's not enough to compete with Disney's latest rehash of a rehash coated in sugary pixels. I thought Roma (Cuaron) was either a bad film or at best incredibly meh but if a mediocre Mexican melodrama is already able to attract so much attention what happens when you show these people a Martel film? Central Station? Bacura? Any well made Latin American film? To me much of that is more easily approachable than much of what comes out of the USA these days. Really, it can't be that bad. The problem is that these films don't play enough places, their promotional weight is miniscule compared to the multimillion blockbuster conglomerates, they are in Spanish (at least in much of Europe not a big deal because we have the power of dubbing) and they don't enter feedback loops outside the cinephile cirlces very much (aside from in Latin America itself ofc). But maybe you mean something a bit different by disconnect. I certainly find what I've seen tends to be quite approachable, maybe not Llinas but it's not some cultural barrier, it's just that he makes very long films. He even reminds me of Tarrantino at times. Tropa Elite 2 even was in the IMDB top 250 for some time if memory serves.

What I mean by that hit at Fellini was that scholars seem to reject calling his early films (La Strada) neorealist because he's not a left-winger, while De Sica gets a pass for doing really, almost the same thing. I half-jokingly theorized that I also like Fellini less because he's not a left-winger like the rest of the boys.

Yuuup...
It definitely doesn't make me as uncomfortable as Psycho in regards to the identity politics...

For the record, I do not think Hitchcock's film is intentionally transphobic, but I definitely think it contributed to societal transphobia because the public are ignorant. I'd say the same of The Silence of the Lambs. I like both films, but I respect and totally understand why some of my fellow trans folks hate them.

joachimt wrote: April 7th, 2021, 7:15 pm Why are some movies listed as "NEW" although they were in the top 2000 previously? For example The Crying Game.
Good catch : theses are the few films that have shifted in and out of the top 1001 with the last batch of correction.
Their rank have shifted... but not the different formula to compute the new tag between <1000 and <2000.

As PA said last year ... i'll take a look at automizing completely that formula to avoid that problem.

Edit : all Future posts are OK, no need to corect them. i'l lcorect the few errors already posted (9 it seems)

I do not think it is updated correctly.

I see United 93 at #997 on the linked list and it is now #1002 according to the posts in this thread.
Tim explained somewhere later that he had to do another small recalculation and it would effect some of the last rankings in the poll. (Mistakes happen and he hasn't done this huge poll before, no problem there)
Had we already controlled if there were separate votes for Das Boot and the Das Boot mini-series by the way :ermm:
Only checked the Bergman Film/TV ... DasBoot could be another it's true ... It "lost" 5 votes but we can't be sure if the voter didin't prefered the tv series ?

All thoses double feature would have to be processed by hand... and it's both dificult and dangerous ;)

Das Boot movie Wolfgang Petersen 8.3 1981 233933 https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0082096/ 1426,094186 29
