Year by Year Polls: 1994 (Nominations) **CLOSED**

#1

Post by gromit82 » September 29th, 2019, 2:45 am

Welcome to the Year-by-Year Poll!

This poll is for the year 1994.

These polls are fairly simple. We work our way through film history selecting a different year each time, and you list your top films from the given year. Depending on the number of voters, the poll usually produces a list of around 50-90 films and is a great way of finding recommendations. Lots of people will also list other films outside their top 20 as honorable mentions or runners-up.

The Rules

- You can vote for a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 20 films.

- Feature films, documentaries, short films, TV movies, and TV mini-series are all eligible, but not continuing TV series or individual TV episodes.

- We use IMDb dates for consistency, so a title should be listed on IMDb as 1994.

- Your ballot can be either ranked or unranked. For ranked ballots, you must use a numbered list. If I don't understand what your intention was, your ballot may be counted differently from what you expected.

- IMPORTANT: Along with a list of the titles from 1994, please include a separate list (in the same post) of bare IMDb urls for the same films. Your ballot will be deemed disqualified if the IMDb urls are not included.

The Scoring

For ranked ballots, the top-ranked title will receive a number of points equal to the number of titles on the ballot, with each succeeding title receiving one fewer point. So the top title on a list of 20 films will receive 20 points, the next 19 points, and so on. If the list has only 10 films, the top title will receive 10 points, the next one 9, and so on. If there are 5 films on the list, the top film will receive 5 points, the next one 4, etc. You get the idea.

For unranked ballots, each title will receive an equal share of the total points that would have been allotted to the ballot if it had been ranked. So, for example, if there are 20 films on the ballot, this means each one would receive 10.5 points.

The next poll will be 2007, and the one after that will be 1955.

Thanks for participating!

Yes, it's accepted. I don't interpret the restriction against TV episodes so literally as to prohibit entries such as "US Go Home."

The logic is that it is a film. ;)

The TV show it is associated with is similar to Play for Today, i.e. standalone films produced under the same banner.

Wild Reeds and Cold Water were also part of this series, though they were also released at the cinema. and the versions showed on TV were cut-down.

It is also sold (and promoted) as a film, i.e.

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

For me this was one of the worst years in film history, I got to 5, but only just, all excellent:

1. Natural Born Killers (1994 - Oliver Stone)
2. Whispering Pages (1994 - Aleksandr Sokurov)
3. La Reine Margot (1994 - Patrice Chéreau)
4. London (1994 - Patrick Keiller)
5. A Pure Formality (1994 - Giuseppe Tornatore)

Would be great to watch Angel Dust, but seems it has had some rights issues as never had a proper home video release outside of VHS.

well done indeed, but if one includes satantango in a list, number one is the only realistic spot! so I wasn't that surprised :)

Can we at least agree that what was seen on the screen was not special effects and was what actually happened? If we agree on that, then whatever name you want to use for what happened, I'm not OK with it.

I decided not to participate due to the jdidaco's low rating on Nakajima's 'The Box', which I classify as insensitive and cruel :circle: :turned:

Didn't appear on my list due to inclusion of actual cat torture :yucky: :P
Wasn't the cat already sick? I don't know, I'm not a trivia guy, but I remember reading something like that..
When the issue of the animal’s welfare is raised, Tarr jolts upright in his chair, noticeably bristling, as though this is the first he has heard of such a concern.

“Are you crazy?” he snaps. “I had two cats at home. Can you believe that I would kill a cat?! Never! First of all, we knew the cat scene [was coming] and we knew that the cat would have to rehearse with the girl. Every day in the hotel room they would do this kind of ‘turning’ game. By the end, the cat was used to this and did not care.”

Tarr continues, “We knew that the cat has to die, so I called my vet, who was looking after my cat at home, and he came to the location. I told him, ‘You have to give her a sleeping injection. We will push the button on the camera when you give us a sign that the cat is getting dizzy’. We shot on his signal and the cat fell asleep. The whole crew stood around waiting for 25 minutes until she started to wake up. It was totally okay. The cat did not have any trouble, believe me. All the cat noises you hear are samples that we found from the sound archive on the internet, because the cat was totally silent.”
