I will be shocked if I get more than 5/250 on this list. I'll be surprised if I even hit 1/250. But this will still be a fun one!

I actually considered voting for A Japanese Tragedy, undoubtedly one of Kinoshita's best.

As for Kaseki, that's one film I have been meaning to see for a decade.

Absolutely loving how you have things set up. Screenshots, posters, voters, etc. It looks awesome and is shaping up to be an amazing list.

Interesting to see one from Armando Robles Godoy already show up. I really admired 'Espejismo' and voted for it here. I remember seeing it on several other ballots so I hope it will show up as well.

Beautiful to see 'Kaseki' among this opening bunch. A haunting, contemplative, beautifully filmed late-career masterpiece from Kobayashi. It is one of those films that I would love to see again sometime to see how it holds up. It's been a long time but I remember being moved deeply by it.
That's all, folks!

I love the fact that we got enough votes for a decent top 250. (l) Really looking forward to how this pans out. As said when I suggested the poll idea, this should be one of the most unpredictable polls that we have ever held in the best possible way. B)

But then I decided to not make my list too monstrously big. If I had been adding every great film I would likely not have been done on time. (in fact I was not done on time)

"Art of Memory" has been on my list of shorts to see for ages, but it seems like I found it once and it needed subtitles in isolated places? No?

"Sarah Winchester, Phantom Opera" is on my shorts list too. Anyone have a link for that one?

I have "Beauty" checked but can't remember it at all.
