Year by Year Polls: 1971 (CLOSED)

#1

Post by gromit82 »

Welcome to the Year by Year Poll!

This poll is for the year 1971.

These polls are fairly simple. We work our way through film history selecting a different year each time, and you list your top films from the given year. Depending on the number of voters, the poll usually produces a list of around 50-90 films and is a great way of finding recommendations. You can also list other films outside your top 20 as honorable mentions or runners-up.

The Rules

- You can vote for a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 20 films.

- Feature films, documentaries, short films, TV movies, and TV mini-series are all eligible, but not continuing TV series or individual TV episodes.

- We use IMDb dates for consistency, so a title should be listed on IMDb as 1971 (unless a specific film has been otherwise declared eligible). Note: I usually don't validate titles for eligibility until after the poll closes, unless a question has been raised about a specific title. So please make sure that the films on your list are eligible, or specifically ask on this thread about titles whose eligibility is in doubt. If you happen to see that someone else has an ineligible film on their ballot, please let them know.

- Your ballot can be either ranked or unranked, but for ranked ballots, your list must be numbered. Partially ranked lists (where a certain number at the top are ranked, and the rest are unranked) are allowed. Please make sure that what you mean to do with your list is clear.

- IMPORTANT: Along with a list of the titles from 1971, please include the corresponding list of bare IMDb urls for the same films. Your ballot cannot be counted if the IMDb urls are not included. (And if you list only the URLs but not the films' titles, you'll significantly reduce your fellow voters' enjoyment of this poll, so please make sure to include both titles and URLs.)

- Please note, you must post your list of URLs yourself rather than having someone else do that for you.

The Scoring

For ranked ballots, the top-ranked title will receive a number of points equal to the number of titles on the ballot, with each succeeding title receiving one fewer point. So the top title on a list of 20 films will receive 20 points, the next 19 points, and so on. If the list has only 10 films, the top title will receive 10 points, the next one 9, and so on. If there are 5 films on the list, the top film will receive 5 points, the next one 4, etc. You get the idea.

For unranked ballots, each title will receive an equal share of the total points that would have been allotted to the ballot if it had been ranked. If there are 20 films on the ballot, this means each one would receive 10.5 points.

This post is reserved for eligibility rulings.

Aleksey German's Proverka na dorogakh (Trial on the Road) is eligible for this 1971 poll notwithstanding its IMDb year of 1986.

Very fine year indeed, I noted my ratings out of 5, but on the out of 10 scale everyting is rated 8.5 or higher, and there are a lot of 9's here!
I might have wanted to include Proverka na Dorogakh as my 20th entry, but then Imdb said it was only made in 1986... one of the many reasons why Imdb is not the best tool for these kind of polls (not that I have another solution ;))

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

I see that two voters have expressed interest in voting for Proverka na dorogakh (listed by IMDb as a 1986 film) in this poll. As I'm not familiar with this film, I would appreciate some other opinions as to whether it should be declared eligible for this poll.

It used to be listed as '71 and I believe it has bounced back and forth between these years. Removed it from my list when I was adding the IMDb links, but if allowed I'll add it back.

Kino Teatr has it as 1971 (https://www.kino-teatr.ru/kino/movie/sov/5723/annot/). It would appear to come down to how one assigns a film: year of production or year of release. When there is such a length of time between the two years, I would tend to assign the film to the year of production. I think either year would be justifiable though.

It would appear to come down to how one assigns a film: year of production or year of release. When there is such a length of time between the two years, I would tend to assign the film to the year of production. I think either year would be justifiable though.
Thanks. I've decided to make Proverka na dorogakh eligible for this poll.

Now how super convenient is that? 1986 is the year we decided to do next in our poll series. The case has been very clearly stated and danger is minimal that people will now vote twice for it / in the wrong year. :sweat:

19. 儀式 | The Ceremony (Oshima)
20. La Corta Notte delle Bambole di Vetro | Short Night of Glass Dolls (Lado)

What an amazing year!!! I wasn't able to include films by Mani Kaul, Walerian Borowczyk, Elio Petri, Stanley Kubrick, Sergio Martino, Damiano Damiani, Dario Argento, Masao Adachi, John Frankenheimer, Corrado Farina, Tadeusz Konwicki, Akio Jissoji, Miklos Jancso, Robert Altman, Dan Pita, Kazimierz Kutz, Aleksej Gherman, Alain Tanner, Toshio Matsumoto, Eric Rohmer, Louis Malle, John Schlesinger, Sam Peckinpah, Paolo Cavara, Jan Troell, Melvin Van Peebles, Ulu Grosbard, ... all of which I rated 8.0/10.0 or higher

Maybe this is the best year ever???...!!!

Note: without any doubt La Cicatrice Intérieure de Philippe Garrel is my favourite film (and music) from (i.e. produced in) 1971, but since it's stated as a 1972-release on imdb it's eligible in this poll...

From context I realize that there is a typo in that sentence, but just to clarify, La cicatrice intérieure is indeed ineligible for this poll as a 1972 film. When we did the Year by Year Poll for 1972, three years ago, La cicatrice intérieure was included; it received four votes for 33.5 points and placed 63rd.

Yeah, sorry that was a typo. My bad, I know it INeligible now. :rolleyes: In my own database I use the production/copyright years as they are shown on the opening or closing credits of the film itself. So in this year-by-year polls I have to check/double check the year of release that imdb uses. I understand we have to draw the line somewhere, so no problems to use/follow imdb.
