Red Planet Films


Welcome to icm Forum's take on the essential film canon. A hybrid between Desert Island Discs and Film School curricula, this fun project is intended to showcase the films that the forum holds in the highest esteem, whether for their technical prowess, aesthetic beauty, engaging plot, or general warm-fuzziness.


What does the final list look like? Final List length is 100 films, which includes all films mentioned on at least 4 ballots. List is unranked, listed chronologically (and then by title).

All right, here we go. Took me more time than expected to figure out some formulas and formatting to make it all work. Let me know if you think something about the display of the results should be changed.

The order of reveal is going to be somewhat random, to maximize the surprise factor throughout. To start things off, here's a film that I'm sure everyone expected to show up. 20 of 28 people included it on their ballot.

Image

Citizen Kane (1941, Orson Welles), on 36 official toplists, with 49,262 checks and 4,660 favourites

:banana: Results! :banana:

Really enjoying the eclectic delivery of the results! I believe I am at 4/5 so far. It’s hard to say how influential or important Parasite will be in the long-term, but for now it seems about the best choice to represent modern cinema.

Three films for Spielberg, and only two (maybe?) for Kubrick? Interesting. Guessing that Jurassic Park and E.T. are the others that make it in.

Rashomon, Jaws and Citizen Kane would definitely have been on my list if it had been restrained to 100 instead of 50 so... Good start I guess

I can neither confirm nor deny your Spielberg guesses. :ph43r:

For Kubrick (and others), they had a lot of films nominated, but for these types of polls with limited spots on ballots, it's always a matter of which films get consensus. I suppose that with Kubrick having such a varied output in terms of genre, it was less likely for a consensus to arise.

But yes, there is another Kubrick film in the top 100.

I'll include a bunch of stats in the end for both the top 100 and for the entire list of 604 films nominated. As a teaser, 6 of Kubrick's films were nominated, and 7 of Spielberg's were. A bunch of other directors also have 6, but Spielberg is tied for the most; Bergman also has 7 on full list.

Two silent films widely praised (I think) for their ingenuity and craftsmanship.

The only surprise for me so far is the Sembene film - with 4 votes. I have a feeling that the 4-vote films will be the most interesting part of this exercise as opposed to the Vertigos and Kanes that we could all see coming.

Wow! 6 films for 1966! I realise that it is a banner year for cinema, but that total is really punching. I'm very curious to see what the overall decade breakdown will be. I imagine films from the 60s will lead the pack by a fairly wide margin.

I’ll admit that maybe I’m asking the wrong question by asking for one movie to represent the last 10 years of film. But in my methodology that’s the function Parasite served.

If you were picking one film to represent that period what would you go with? Or is it a question wrongly posed?

In my mind it's not a wrongly posed question but I also get the sense many of us spent quite a bit of time thinking about our lists and considered many factors, including genre, chronology/decades, country/region, key film movements etc. I assume we all listed 50 films we think are great, while also trying to check as many boxes as possible. It will be interesting to see if there are any major gaps once our results are combined, although with just 28 voters we all likely had a significant influence on the final product.

For what it's worth, I included three films from the 2010s: A Separation, which is also my #1 Iranian film; Parasite, which is my #1 film of the decade and also covers South Korea; and Portrait of a Lady on Fire, which I have ranked #1 for films directed by women and #2 for films with an LGBT theme.

My personal pick would be Xiao Shi Da Kan, but it's near impossible to represent a decade with just one film. My problem with Parasite is that it could've just as well been made in the '00s. There's nothing there that screams '10, so as a representative of this past decade I don't think it does a very good job.

Yeah, the 4s and 5s are where most of the surprises will come. It's also why I'm running the countdown differently than usual, otherwise the last half would be rather boring and predictable if it was by most votes.

Did the person who picked this screenshot for the database have a vendetta against the film? I’ve always thought this shot was particularly boring with all the characters lined up in a wide shot like they’re standing on stage. Surely there’s a more dynamic screenshot to choose for this iconic film?

Hmm, I think that Casablanca screenshot should be replaced in our database. It's pretty bland, IMO.

Lawrence of Arabia was one of the films I had in my list, then removed it, then switched it back in at the last minute. It replaced Victim, and if I was submitting my list today, I might have switched the two yet again.
