2. Belle de jour

Shorts
The following films under 45 minutes long made the main list:

58. Kata
61. He’s Here Now
73. Samadhi
73. Homeo
81. The Hand Is Pinker Than the Eye
81. Les amours de la pieuvre
85. The Liberation of the Mannique Mechanique

Your mileage may vary
The following titles are well-known (over 10,000 votes) and reasonably well-liked (average rating of 7.0 or higher) by IMDb users, but they didn't make a big impression here:

To Sir, with Love (over 16,000 votes, 1 ballot, 12 points)
Kavkazskaya plennitsa, ili Novye priklyucheniya Shurika / Kidnapping, Caucasian Style (over 11,000 votes, 1 ballot, 2 points)

The next poll will be for 2009, and the one after that will be for 1946.

Thanks to everyone who voted!

Thanks for the excellent presentation Gromit!

Two things that shock me. First, Hombre only had 2 votes oO me and someone else. To me that is an absolute stone cold classic. It doesn't appear on any official lists either. I wonder if people avoid it because Paul Newman is cast as an Apache, although it's fair within the story, as he's a white boy who was kidnapped and bought up by Apache, that might not be obvious until people actually watch the film. Still, it appears that quite a lot of people have watched the film, it has more IMDb votes than many of the films in the poll top 10. Interested to hear peoples' thoughts on this one.

Secondly, I would have thought that La Chinoise would be much higher. Maybe you have to be very interested in politics to like it, the other Godards are much higher.

Thanks Gromit. Happy, though largely unsurprising results; certainly happy to see this forum continue in it's tradition of being a little less Anglo-centric than the CFB was, and if my own favorites weren't the highest-ranking of the many great French films from this year, I can't be too disappointed - this was a VERY difficult year for me to rank outside of my top couple, and re-watches of several films could certainly change things around.

Tops unseen for me - the three Japanese films in the top 25. Lots of other stuff further down - I've seen plenty from this year, but the '66-68 period in particular is just endless treasures and I don't feel I'll ever catch up to all of them.

matt: I liked Hombre a lot myself, but too much competition from this year - it' in my second twenty. I'm not particularly bothered by the redwashing - hey it's what happened back then, and not just in American westerns. Surprised it's not on any official lists, but then we don't have a good, large comprehensive western list; if we had a TheyShootSixGuns Top 1000 like we do for horror, I suspect Hombre would be top 200 at least.

I think La chinoise is just a little less-seen than the other two Godards, and it doesn't have a fancy Criterion edition like they do (though maybe in Europe the difference in editions is slighter, dunno). And certainly the political angle makes a difference. It was one of a handful of films I managed to watch for the poll and it was the best of the new viewings by a good margin, but it still only made the lowest rungs of my list. 2 ou 3 choses I couldn't really vote for, having seen it only once 25 years or so ago.

Haha, I was tempted to criticise the western coverage on icheckmovies too, the lists are interesting but definitely not offering full coverage, they feel quite barbell, DW Griffith oater and acid western in there, but maybe some of the spectrum in between is absent. Redwashing - I learned a new word.

Redface would be the more common term, but as you pointed out, it's not actually a case of redface. It's more akin to Daniel Day-Lewis in Last of the Mohicans than Burt Lancaster in Apache.

Incidentally, I was the other voter for Hombre. A great movie. And it came in right next to another underrated Western, A Bullet for the General.

I'm really surprised Marketa Lazarová managed to beat out almost every other film, including The Graduate and Playtime ... Happy with the number 1 choice, disappointed and surprised Edipo re landed all the way down at 28th. Seems Pasolini may just not be that respected in these parts (anymore)?

I also love the balance between films with just a few thousand votes, or even less, actually making a proper impact - especially in the extended list.

Seen 70/88 from the ICM list, with these being the top ranked unseen:

37. Two for the Road
39. 7362
43. The Honey Pot
47. Far from the Madding Crowd
52. The Night It Rained

Been meaning to see The Honey Pot for a while, though the probably most anticipated film for me, which I have kept meaning to see for a long, long time, is David Holzman's Diary - which is on 7 ICM lists, but still stuck on the 75th spot. Maybe it should not be that big of a priority after all. :D

The 61st spot Late August at the Hotel Ozone is another I have been interested in.

The critic Michel Aubriant wrote, "Je ne sais si Œdipe-Roi est un chef-d'oeuvre mais il m'a envoûté", I have the same reaction. There's an element of Parajanov in it, it's not really easy to tell what on earth is happening at some junctures, but you're transfixed.

:cheers: Gromit


Yes no big surprises - SAMURAI a respectable winner - curious to revisit as only viewing 40 years ago on B&W TV ie not at its best.......having spent a decade on imdb1 best of year polls I still tend to frame my predictions along their more Hollywoodcentric/English speaking lines

Only big surprise in top ten was 4# MARKETA LAZAROVE which I'd never heard of.

:angry: :o :( :huh: re FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD's demotion since the imdb1 poll - best ever screen Hardy, a beautiful film, and one of the few to depict farming as the hard work it undoubtedly was/is.

Nice to see THE INCIDENT gaining ground.

Agree HOMBRE a fine movie - it would have been my second HM to bump up if any of my 20 deemed ineligible. For the record I have No problem with any kind of "face" in pre 1970 movies - this was standard industry practice at the time and I remain unconvinced today's viewers require any "warning" to comprehend the fact that old cultural artefacts don't necessarily chime with today's standards and values. The fact it was released in 1967 should be all the information one needs.


Also a bit sad I was the lone voice for this.... :( Image


Revving up for 2009! :D

The short answer is no, Lechuguilla only posted a top 30.

The long answer is that I do have some additional information from the poll.

Lechuguilla divided the poll into a "Mainstream" section and an "Obscure" section. The Mainstream section is what I posted above. The Obscure section was limited to films that appeared on less than 15% of the ballots (in this poll, 6 or fewer ballots) and had less than 500 IMDb votes. Here are the Top 20 Obscure Films of 1967 from the 2011 poll, with their respective showings this time indicated in parentheses. Films which received no votes this time around are indicated with (0).

01. Poor Cow … Ken Loach (3 ballots, 20 points)
02. Caprice … Frank Tashlin (0)
03. I Even Met Happy Gypsies (Skupljaci perja) … Aleksandar Petrovic (0)
04. The Stranger (Lo straniero) … Luchino Visconti (2 ballots, 11 points)
05. Two in the Shadow (Midaregumo) … Mikio Naruse (23)
06. Eye Myth (short) … Stan Brakhage (now listed by IMDb as a 1977 film)
07. Japan’s Longest Day (Nihon no ichiban nagai hi) … Kihachi Okamoto (2 ballots, 7 points)
08. Games … Curtis Harrington (79)
09. (tie)Silence and Cry (Csend es kialtas) … Miklos Jancso (now listed by IMDb as a 1968 film)
09. (tie)Smashing Time … Desmond Davis (0)
11. Report (short) … Bruce Conner (4 ballots, 19 points)
12. Half a Sixpence … George Sidney (0)
13. Stop Look and Listen (short) … Janson & Menville (1 ballot, 9 points)
14. Hurry Sundown … Otto Preminger (1 ballot, 16 points)
15. Ulysses … Joseph Strick (0)
16. A Colt Is My Passport (Koruto wa ore no pasupoto) … Takashi Nomura (44)
17. Privilege … Peter Watkins (69)
18. The Fox … Mark Rydell (0)
19. The Day the Fish Came Out … Mihalis Kakogiannis (0)
20. The Plea (Vedreba) … Tengiz Abuladze (29)

So these films typically did not make much of an impression in the poll this time, with the Naruse, the Abuladze, and the Nomura being exceptions to that trend.

There were also five films which each received one first-place vote in 2011 that didn't make the top 30 mainstream or the top 20 obscure lists that year:

Branded to Kill (Koroshi no rakuin) … Seijun Suzuki (22)
Elvira Madigan … Bo Widerberg (51)
Terra em Transe … Glauber Rocha (32)
Valley of the Dolls … Mark Robson (2 ballots, 7 points)
War and Peace (Voyna i mir) … Sergei Bondarchuk (now listed by IMDb as a 1965 film)

This group made a better showing than the Top 20 Obscure list did this time around.

Not for me - a major disappointment. Sorry.

The exquisite score for MADDING alone is enough

Thanks gromit!

Drastically overrated top 2 for my taste, but cool Marketa Lazarova made it into the top 5! Also love that the Naruse and Rocha entries made it as high as they did.

Never even heard of the film Les demoiselles de Rochefort before. Apparently I have seen 0 films by it's director. :$

I'm glad that Playtime had equal most #1 votes. :)

:cheers: Agreed - it has the sense of grace and movement of a musical without actually being one. Those sailors were as choreographed as anything in ON THE TOWN or SOUTH PACIFIC. DONKEY SKIN is my other favourite - the first half visually a real treat. And Demy must rank as one of the finest champions of basque & boa wearing leading ladies - a winning combo that always gets my vote :D

Not sure if you like musical. I consider Remy's The Umbrellas of Cherbourg as one of the best musical, and heartbreaking too. Very beautiful color throughout the movie. Catherine Deneuve couldn't be more lovely.

Seems a very big point difference between 1st and 2nd and 2nd and 3rd?

1978 was closer but 1950 had an even bigger point difference between first and second

1978 was a very close one. The lead actually changed twice after I stopped counting the ballots, because I discovered that (1) someone had listed Autumn Sonata's URL twice on their ballot, and correcting that moved Days of Heaven into first place, and (2) someone else had listed a different film's URL twice on their ballot when one of those positions was supposed to belong to The Deer Hunter, and correcting that moved The Deer Hunter to first place.

If you're looking for a year with big gaps between 1st and 2nd, and 2nd and 3rd, and 3rd and 4th, and 4th and 5th, and 5th and 6th, check out 1942: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=4460/#p589081

Interesting, I guess Casablanca was obvious, the rest and the gaps less so.

How can Kokochashvili's 'Didi mtsvane veli' doesn't appear in the TOP 85 ??? a glitch in the matrix ?? Ah OK OK, have a good time.
