Wow Gordon, we share many of our top favorites! Fingers crossed for a neat outcome of results.
Now if you're even going to increase the Asian part
:cheers: Hope so too.

Last year was very focused on frech directors and eastern europe (thanks to the guy with the reference to easterneuropeanfilms.com.) But this year will be...tora tora tora. ;)

Btw: your rating of Jaws? Didn't see it in the first eight films from Spielberg :mw_confused:

13. Masaki Kobayashi
I haven't seen many of the titles in his filmography, but those are almost ridiculously perfect. My average rating probably is like 9/10. To direct Seppuku, 3x The Human Condition and Kaidan in succession and still be a relatively unknown name to Western film circles ..
Not quite in succession, because between The Human Condition and Harakiri, he directed the (of course) also great The Inheritance, which is a "smaller" film, but no lesser work. In this one, Kobayashi goes all-in on the style of the japanese new wave und combines it with a film noir attitude. Really interesting, uncommon work!

I usually dont like posting links to blogs in forums, but I wrote about this one and since youre german aswell and seem to be interested in Kobayashi - my german review.

I missed the cutoff for submitting a list (though I now see I could've made it in even once I noticed). Kobayashi is my #17 and I had to go deep into his filmography to find that Somewhere Beneath the Wide Sky and Sincere Heart are not up to his usual standard.

I don't know why you'd stop his success with Kaidan. After that was Samurai Rebellion, which is just as good

I've been refreshing the forum since wednesday, any ETA ? :D

Well, last year we started on Feb 14. So still theres time.. :D

But on a serious note, as I have said last time also, PA might be incredibly busy with other works esp around this time of the year. He already is taking care of so much ICM/forum related stuffs. Then there is a little thing called personal life. So I guess one of us should take over the direct and/or fav movies poll hereafter to ease his burden.

I spent the evening experimenting my skills in Python and I might have the results of the poll...

I just need Carmel1379's list which is presently "not public" but I've experienced the same thing with my own list so this might be a bug...
Carmel1379 if you're around, could you export your list to CSV and send it to me?

However, I don't know anything about the code that is behind the display of the results (screenshots, rankings from previous years etc.) so I don't know if we're at a point where we prefer raw results without any fancy countdown, or we still prefer to wait for PA

I’d give PA a chance to respond via PM before proceeding. He might appreciate the help if he is going through a difficult time.

I'd say this. If he's even glad to get this off his chest for now, that's even better then.
