iCM Forum's Favorite Director's Swan Songs
Results

Image

About a year ago we chose our favorite directorial debut, cause everybody has to start somewhere. Alas everything also has to end at some point. So this time we chose our favorite final movies directed by a director, i.e. favorite directorial swan songs.

Half-life = 15

Please feel free to discuss the list, the films, and any entries that you're happy or unhappy about, whether you submitted a list or not, but please try to be courteous when doing so. When quoting a post with images it's best if you remove the image unless it's directly relevant to what you're posting

Excited to see if my #1 made the list or not. I guess we'll find out soon when you post the list of #1s that didn't make the cut. B)

Disappointed to see #74 ranked so low on such a horror-loving forum. But I guess with the small number of voters anything can happen, and hey maybe most people aren't as crazy about this as I am.
It was the truth, vivid and monstrous, that all the while he had waited the wait was itself his portion..

Thank you for providing so much input for the master list. Without it the list would been half as extensive

I don't know if I can think of another director with such a masterful and absolutely fitting swansong. :wub:
