I took a wild guess which list he handed in and I was right. But I think he didn't exactly plan on dominating the poll with his nominations.

Eh, that would only be about as helpful as a general "East Asian cinema" mafia would be for Onderhond. A queer American indie films of the last 15 years mafia would be required I think.

Several strong mafias, and quite a few outsiders to varying degrees. I'm somewhat lost At the bottom of the stuffing between them. :-)

I'm easily bought. I offer comfortable spots in my Top 10 to anyone willing to nominate my #1 Quest (1996). Ranks in the 100s are given out in packages - ideal for short film series.
PS: Don't fool me by voting for The Quest (1996)! I won't fall for this again. :angry:

My percentage is going to get higher and higher because I'm not watching too many films and most of them are 500<400. I guess I'll become even more of a homogeneous pig.

Just realized that sortile9io lists me as have 198 votes when my list had 200, so I can only imagine that 2 of the films I voted for were nixed because of more than 400 checks.
Wonder which ones they were? Thought I checked my list pretty thoroughly beforehand

No. I was just wondering how someone submits a list of almost 400 titles, and not get one film on the list.

I wonder what the participants from The Parallel Street would say about a document from 11x14. The former missing so many documents it is fun to imagine scenes from other films as documents in it.

21 films from the last poll have already hit 400 checks. A biggie recently did..."Days and Nights in the Forest." And "The Meetings of Anna" and "Stars in My Crown" at 399.
