This list is very enjoyable to read. When I saw a fair few co-favourites I gave Sucker Punch a chance and it blew me away. Your list has a great mix of mainstream, experimental and arthouse, and good to see a lot of underappreciated horror and action movies here that snobbery keeps many from appreciating/giving a chance. Gonna try to see another 3-4 before poll close.
Thanks for the kind words, Matt. Now where's your I'm sure triply more eclectic and personal list hiding?

Enjoy those other films you choose too!

Ranked 1-100. Highly likely to have additions and order changes before the deadline. prospect of doom~ (2013 - Manuel Knapp) would be high up if on IMDb, I will try to get it added, though tricky as the director needs adding as well. Comfort Stations (2018 - Anja Dornieden, Juan David Gonzalez Monroy) will be on there when I see it on a better screen tonight.

Hello Almayer's Folly, goodbye 13 Assassins. How is it so many of the best films from this decade are the least discussed?

Hello Almayer's Folly, goodbye 13 Assassins. How is it so many of the best films from this decade are the least discussed?
The forum is just now catching up to all the hidden gems from the 90's, but most of the 21st century preferences are still pretty mainstream. There are a ton of movies out there, these days, and from every nook and cranny in the world. I've spoken about this topic on several occasions, and despite the fact that many here watch a lot of movies, they cull what they watch from typical channels, and the more atypical stuff often slips through unless it fits a niche market or is made by a well-known filmmaker.

Regarding Almayer's Folly, I've had it on my list pretty much since it cam out, but getting a copy requires creative effort, and it's not easy to source it given my current situation.

What is never-the-less true is that most of what has excited me about film in the 21st century hasn't gotten nearly the comparative attention of what inspired me most about film in the 20th century.

No. See OP. When we will do a 2020 list for the first time, we will have to decide together. It indeed doesn't make much sense to do one next year already.

:cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

Didn't know you liked Iwai. He was an extremely late discovery for me - it may have been Rip Van Winkle that made me explore him. Lily was obviously on my radar, but for some reason I never got around to it before then - not one of my favourites from him though. Picnic was the second one that just completely blew me away, beautiful (visually) and insane (with literally insane leads :lol:). It is quite short, and back from '96 so might not have the visual flare you tend to go for, but the concept of three patients escaping and essentially just playing a game of the floor is lava by balancing on a wall is surprisingly effective. Did you ever see it?

I liked too, nice to see Makino, Ding, Eggers and Clipson per example, for a change :thumbsup:

I gave Sucker Punch a chance few minutes ago, but I couldn't finish.. the trailer, sorry.

Really looking forward to the results of this, will likely start peaking at more of the lists for recommendations. Still not too happy with '18 and 19, especially the latter, but not quite sure what I should be eager to watch.

Yeah, I like Iwai :lol:

I'm pretty up to date on his oeuvre (features anyway), mostly missing films from his early TV period. I just watched Swallowtail Butterfly again last week, still a very fine film. Loved Picnic too, but I need to watch it again but it's been ages. Not a big fan of his docs and his US film was pretty bad. Also not the biggest fan of Lily, so we seem to have that in common too :)

If you're ever starved for more Japanese film, look into the work of Isao Yukisada. He started as an apprentice of Iwai and has borrowed a lot of his style. A bit more conventional compared to Iwai, but he made some great films too. And you need to watch Hideaki Anno's Ritual of course, with Iwai as lead actor.

Well put. I know it's different points in the medium's evolution, but it's crazy that L'avventura was one of the top ranked films in the 1962 Sight and Sound poll...can you imagine a film from 2018 being ranked in the top five of all time by a broad critical consensus? And something like Mysteries of Lisbon, which seems exceptionally beloved and acclaimed by almost everyone I know who's seen it, so rarely makes it into the conversation of best films of the 21st century. I always deride the state of modern film, and I think it's mostly true with what makes it to theaters even in big cities, but I think you're right that there's tons of great stuff that will hopefully become available and appreciated outside the festival and torrenting circuits. I'll try to dig up some more stuff before the due date.

There are several interesting lists posted, here, including my own :D . Mine is not nearly as esoteric and experimental as some, nor oriented towards cult favorites, but it was carefully made, with considerable reflection.

I got half way through Mysteries of Lisbon (the miniseries) before it was pulled as a streaming option on amazon, and I have yet to get back to it, but I have another of Ruiz's films at #12 on my list.

Is cause you said "top 100 ranked", I assumed only the first 100 were ranked and rest unranked, didn't know it was just a top 100. Doesn't in how your list is counted.

2010 and 2011 also look both my most watched and highest rated years. 2013 at the bottom of ratings (2019 excluded).
