Year-by-Year Polls: 1992 (CLOSED)

#1

Post by Teproc »

Welcome to the Year-by-Year Poll!

This poll is for the year 1992, aka the year of my birth, which I'm sure is very exciting to all of you.

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. Lots of people will also list other films outside their 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 1992.

- Your ballot can be either ranked or unranked, but I will assume it's ranked unless otherwise stated. For ranked ballots it makes it easier if you use a numbered list.

- IMPORTANT: Along with a list of the titles from 1992, please include the corresponding list of bare IMDb urls for the same films. Your ballot will be deemed disqualified if the IMDb urls are not included.


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, well 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.

Two shorts that I expect to make my own list:

Good idea gromit! Maybe we can help Minkin, and some other shorts-fans and people without a lot of time, earlier for this poll.

One short will for sure make my list:



Possibly this also:



And these two I don't see so readily available -

Rispondetemi
Ambition - icm sez 1991, imdb sez 1992

But I will probably have mostly features - while this is IMO one of the very worst years of all time for mainstream Hollywood, it's a great year elsewhere and I'll have to do a lot of winnowing.
It was the truth, vivid and monstrous, that all the while he had waited the wait was itself his portion..

Ironically, I wasn't expecting the film to show up in my post. I just expected the YouTube URL to display there.

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!

:o What a timing! I just wanted to state how dumbfounded I am to be the ONLY vote for this film so far, at all. And there we are. :sweat:

Ranked Top 20:

Baraka

Reservoir Dogs
Man Bites Dog [C'est arrivé près de chez vous]
Glengarry Glen Ross
Army of Darkness
Malcolm X
Scent of a Woman

Overall, one of the middest year polls I have done here. I don't feel intensely about half of these, to be frank. The 10th spot in other years would have to fight for the Top 20 ..

HMs / close / don't remember well enough: Twin Peaks, Batman Returns, My Cousin Vinny, Romper Stomper, A Few Good Men, Dracula, Hard-Boiled, Benny's Video, Candyman, Braindead, that Abbas Kiarostami thingy
Special shoutout to Fantaghirò - only Germans will understand

Need to see: Léolo, Careful, Dragon Inn, Death Becomes Her, Chaplin, Bitter Moon, Strictly Ballroom, Orlando, Howards End (in a day very far from now), Juice, The Quince Tree Sun, Il ladro di bambini, L'amant, 500 hours of Heimat 1+2

The list coming out of this poll so far are actually amongst the first to really surprised me. I have made peace with the lack of Maddin fans here (maybe a smaller group than I first imagined) and have low hopes for my number 1 of the year, Careful, but I was absolutely certain a film as legendary and universaly applauded as Rebels of the Neon Sun would get more top spots. Is it and Tsai falling out of favour? And where the hell is Dolwphin when you need him?! :D

Looking at the lists now the only moderate constant seems to be Unforgiven, which I was already expecting to be the shoe-in success story here, but I am surprised by just how many different number 1s I'm seeing. I'll add to this list myself:

1. Careful (1992, Guy Maddin)
2. Qing shao nian nuo zha / Rebels of the Neon God (1992, Ming-liang Tsai)
3. Nassereddin Shah, Actor-e Cinema / Once Upon a Time, Cinema (1992, Mohsen Makhmalbaf)
4. Hyènes (1992, Djibril Diop Mambéty)
5. It is Better to be Rich and Healthy than Poor and Ill (1992, Juraj Jakubisko)
6. The Player (1992, Robert Altman)
7. Conte d'hiver / A Tale of Winter (1992, Éric Rohmer)
8. Videogramme einer Revolution (1992, Harun Farocki, Andrei Ujica)
9. Simple Men (1992, Hal Hartley)
10. Benny's Video (1992, Michael Haneke)

11. Balanta / The Oak (1992, Lucian Pintilie)
12. Un coeur en hiver / A Heart in Winter (1992, Claude Sautet)
13. Quartier Mozart (1992, Jean-Pierre Bekolo)
14. Bad Lieutenant (1992, Abel Ferrara)
15. Antigone (1992, Hulliet & Straub)
16. El sol del membrillo / Dream of Light (1992, Víctor Erice)
17. Orlando (1992, Sally Potter)
18. Unforgiven (1992, Clint Eastwood)
19. Kurenai no buta / Porco Rosso (1992, Hayao Miyazaki)
20. Lektionen in Finsternis / Lessons of Darkness (1992, Werner Herzog)

Honorable mentions:

C'est arrivé près de chez vous / Man Bites Dog (1992, Rémy Belvaux, André Bonzel & Benoît Poelvoorde)
Reservoir Dogs (1992, Quentin Tarrantino)
Midori / Shôjo tsubaki: Chika gentô gekiga (1992, Hiroshi Harada)
Édes Emma, drága Böbe - vázlatok, aktok (1992, István Szabó)
Basic Instinct (1992, Paul Verhoeven)
The Crying Game (1992, Neil Jordan)
Un lugar en el mundo / A Place in the World (1992, Adolfo Aristarain)
One False Move (1992. Carl Franklin)
Allah Tantou / God's Will (1992, David Achkar)
Glengarry Glen Ross (1992, James Foley)
Malcolm X (1992, Spike Lee) 8.4
Don Quijote de Orson Welles (1992, Orson Welles)
A River Runs Through it (1992, Robert Redford)
Heya / The Room (1992, Shion Sono)
Dracula (1992, Francis Ford Coppola)

There's two films that come up on lists here that I feel like I need to rewatch, Life and Nothing More and Videogrammes of the Revolution. In the former case it is clear that my taste has flipped on minimalists, and after really fruitful Bresson, Ozu, Duras and Akerman rewatches I think Kiarostami might be next (originally gave it 6/10) and in the latter, I really enjoyed it, but it did not quite reach favourite status for me - while Farocki has climbed high on my list. Both of these rewatches could also have some impact on my director's ballot, especially if the Kiarostami kickstarts a binge-rewatch session.

You were so close to voting for the right film, are you sure you haven't made a typo?
:D

I would even go as far as calling myself a fan of Guy Maddin, although I've just seen not enough of his pictures, and Careful made #2 on my watchlist .. whatever it can buy for that :mellow:
But you're right, more Maddin votes would be expected in an ICM-related Forum in a poll year with little competition that doesn't show many strong constants in the lists .. apparently? ..

Young man, you have until Sunday evening to watch a certain film on there. You are free to place it just at rank 20, although any higher position would be welcomed by me.
:rolleyes:


Ok I need to stop this, sorry for interrupting the seriousness of this exercise

Definitely would make my list. But it's currently listed as 1991 on IMDb and on ICM. (Although it is listed as 1992 on letterboxd.)

Only the Top 5 of this list made it to the toplist of the 1990s, so a relatively 'weak' year (?). That may be the case when you keep in mind there were even more bombs and turkeys to chose from for a potential bottom list of 1992, like: 1492 Conquest of Paradise, Abgeschminkt!, Baraka, Benny and Joon, C'Est Arrivé pres de Chez Vous, The Lawnmower Man, Man Trouble, Medicine Man, Universal Soldier, Vals Licht etc

Yeah thanks, my list is under construction. I use the production years in my own databsase and check them in the end with imdb which uses release dates or other "wrong data". So it will fall off the list anyway. Dance of Dust is a 1992 film, but sadly shelved and finally released in 1998. I just checked the IFFR site, where there was held a Abolfazl Jalili retrospective in 1999 and where I saw Dance of Dust. https://iffr.com/en/iffr/1999/films/dance-of-dust. It got a dutch theatrical release in december 1999.
