Which I think is a shame. 250 is not that many movies in this poll.

You still get 3pts at 250 so while small that's still a meaningful amount of points. 350-400 is around where I'd say the point values become very diminished.

Look at this beautiful trailer. With 2 minutes, you've already seen 5% of the whole movie - you could also just watch the rest while you're at it! :sweat:

Yes, which is a dreadful practice because it gives everyone an incentive to include everything they somewhat enjoyed, instead of encouraging thoughtful list making. I once proposed creating a limit (as others probably did before), so that the forum lists could reflect the members' taste a bit better: The Life Cinematic, for example did that, and their lists were quite interesting and deviated quite a bit from the usual stuff that everyone's seen and that always ends up filling the top half of any given list. Still, that discussion ended with a few members arguing that people who watched more movies deserved more points to award in our lists, so that left a really sour taste in my mouth.

No, that's not the argument. The argument is everyone gets the same points for their movies, if they have more movies to submit those movies get points, but they get fewer points than the higher ranked ones. If one person submits a top 100 and another submits a top 200 both top 100 provide the exact same points. What benefit does cutting off that extra 100 from the second person have? If they don't feel those movies deserve points then they shouldn't submit them, if you have more than 100 you'd like to vote for then do it. The exponential decay point system puts a flexible cap on list length in that after a certain point adding a movie mostly just gets you on the list of voters but doesn't do much beyond.

Like, let's say we wanted a max list length. I could set it to 300 and then people with longer lists complain, or I can set the halflife so that points after 300 are negligible. It has the same effective effect on the content of the final list, but the second option allows people to show nominal support at no real cost. Now, maybe what you want is for the halflife to be left, so that the effective max list length is shorter. I don't think the numbers bear that out in terms of the lengths of lists people submit and the length of the final list, but there's a possible discussion. I think about tweaks to the voting method every time I do a poll as I don't know that exponential decay is quite the best way to model vote weighting, but I think it's close enough and most of the things I come up with end up being too complex and not beneficial enough to justify that complexity.

Keep in mind that the list stats are still from before our poll, so if a film dropped out of our Hidden Gems, it will have 1 official list less - in this case: 0.

Il profumo della signora in nero (1974) is the second giallo to appear in this year's results. La donna del lago (1965) is the first.

It's a pity to see the drop in fortunes for 'Lawn Dogs'. A fascinating film and so astutely observed. This really made me such a fan of Mischa Barton. I wish she could get some better roles that her talent is crying out for, and break out of this glut of low-budget horrors that she's been appearing in over recent times.
That's all, folks!

100 per cent agree. She plays this role SO well, never cloying, never Fanning-esque "just make her a tiny adult / wise beyond her years". Rockwell also knocks it out of the park in this, you can instantly see that he's going to be a star. For me, my favourite element is the magical realism that fringes the story, deepening the environment and the themes, never serving as a crutch to the story. Weird the way this was marketed though, "From the producers of Four Weddings and a Funeral!". I asked John Duigan about the queer backstory in Lawn Dogs, as I'd heard that he had played it down or made it deliberately ambiguous, but he said it was all there in the screenplay and something that he wanted to keep in to deepen Rockwell's character.

On another note, I'm really surprised that The Passionate Friends hasn't shown up yet.

I would have bet $20 that the screenshot for Tea and Sympathy was from a Douglas Sirk film, or at the very least Nicholas Ray.

I don't see why not, it is a miniseries in episodes, as the heimats or house of cards series...

Haven't seen it. It's just that 13 episodes, 25 minutes rings that "is this really a mini-series bell."

It's a regular TV show, but if stuff like Lain is allowed, I don't see why this one shouldn't.

It's a mini-series, with a clear finished plot that wraps up in those 13 episodes.

RogerTheMovieManiac88 wrote: October 20th, 2020, 3:19 am It's a pity to see the drop in fortunes for 'Lawn Dogs'. A fascinating film and so astutely observed. This really made me such a fan of Mischa Barton. I wish she could get some better roles that her talent is crying out for, and break out of this glut of low-budget horrors that she's been appearing in over recent times.
100 per cent agree. She plays this role SO well, never cloying, never Fanning-esque "just make her a tiny adult / wise beyond her years". Rockwell also knocks it out of the park in this, you can instantly see that he's going to be a star. For me, my favourite element is the magical realism that fringes the story, deepening the environment and the themes, never serving as a crutch to the story. Weird the way this was marketed though, "From the producers of Four Weddings and a Funeral!". I asked John Duigan about the queer backstory in Lawn Dogs, as I'd heard that he had played it down or made it deliberately ambiguous, but he said it was all there in the screenplay and something that he wanted to keep in to deepen Rockwell's character.

On another note, I'm really surprised that The Passionate Friends hasn't shown up yet.
Oh, thanks for this interesting reply (and apologies for not responding earlier; I've been otherwise engaged all day!).

Yes, they are both so good here. Thanks for pointing towards the ''magical realism'' and ''queer'' aspects. It's not a film I've read anything about but those are two elements that are interesting to think about. I have to see the film again, haha. I absolutely loved the subtle way it balanced a naive, carefree innocence and a knowing awareness. It had a very special air to its relationships. Thanks for what you say here. It gets me even more eager to rediscover the film.

And, it's nice to read of your interactions and words with de Heer and Duigan. I really admire several of Duigan's films and absolutely need to delve into some of de Heer's output.

I'm looking forward to watching 'The Passionate Friends' (one of these days!), but it was OldAle who highlighted the film in the nominations topic.

:cheers:
That's all, folks!
