Here is the master list with the top 20 from each poll: https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/icm+ ... genaprido/
Here is the Schedule with all of the results: viewtopic.php?t=5639#p735647

Our last Iberian Forum Poll was held in December 2018. Here's our Top 105 compared to the previous poll. Not much movement at the top, but some pretty big shifts lower down, and a few films released since the last poll did well. The Top Portuguese film came in at 10th last time.

The Host's Hot Take
Perhaps fairly predictable results overall, but I'd forgotten that Cría cuervos topped our last poll so I was surprised to see it win here and shocked that it received so many more points than 2nd place. Saura's not my jam, but I'll have to get on this film pronto. Almodóvar dominates all other directors, including second-place Saura, while regional cinema didn't make much of an impact, with only a few Catalan-, Galician-, or Basque-language films making an appearance, though directors from those regions did well with their Spanish-language fare. 13 unofficial films made the cut with 4 more just outside. We also did well to spread the love from the 1950s to the present day, showing a willingness to explore most of Spain's cinematic output (having two official lists that are more focused on older cinema probably helps, though it's nice to see recent films getting the love too, with two 2022 releases managing to squeak in: As Bestas & Alcarràs - both, curiously, being regional cinema).

Hopefully the results aren't as horrible as Ángel feared. ;)

Next up: Sweden, then Mexico

There's a small problem with the rankings. In the City of Sylvia should be 31, not 32. And everything after that should also be bumped up one spot.

Hmm, not sure what I did. Bad Education is 31, but I either deleted it by accident or messed up the code and it's not showing. Will fix now. Good catch.

Happy to see Pan's Labyrinth rank that high. Never saw and never heard of Cría cuervos before this poll. Need to put that on my watchlist. I was hoping to see Open Your Eyes and The Skin I Live In before the poll ended. Just didn't have the chance. Could have make a difference in the top 10. Thanks for the result.

Maybe collectively it seems Spain is explored, but for most it does seem to be about the two biggest names only... and this while the country really has much more to offer! Hope people will use this list to look for names they don't know yet!

Thanks for hosting Fergen! Seen 68/89

Highest unseen:

10. Open Your Eyes
18. The Invisible Guest
28. Lo impossible
30. Marshlan
32. In the City of Sylvia

The first and last of these 5 are films I have had on my radar forever and should get to.

I was really surprised Saura did so "badly". Yes, he took the top prize, but that was almost his only film in the top 50. This is especially "weird" as La Caza ranks well above Cría cuervos on both of the official Spanish lists on ICM, though I vastly prefer our winner as well.

Thanks for hosting Fergi.
Interesting (and a little dissapointing) to the the results for "classics" like Calle Major or La Caza.

Was I the only one voting for Vacas and La Residencia, or were they close to make it?

I don't mind La caza, but the acclaim for Calle Mayor will forever baffle me.

You were not the only voter for those films!

94 Vacas [Cows] 1992 Julio Medem 23 2 7 :imdb: 3,808 :ICM: 295 2
233 La residencia [The House That Screamed] 1969 Narciso Ibáñez Serrador 7 2 15 :imdb: 3,633 :ICM: 423 2


Vacas was close (and is listed in the runners-up in the spoiler in the OP), but La residencia was nowhere near making it.

Thanks for hosting, calculating en this results Fergenaprido!

Seen 72/89. More than I expected, I watched 31 Spanish movies last year, because it was one of my "countries-in-focus" last autumn. Not my favourite movie country, but some of them (Angustia, La Residencia) of that autumn-viewing made my list.

Great to see that Finisterrae made it, thanks to the other two voters!! :poshclap: A unique and idiosyncratic piece of work. A great surprise at IFFR and made Sergio Caballero one to follow. I think Carla Simon's most recent work (my #1) haven't been seen by most participants, since it's from 2022. Her (likewise great) first work, Summer 1993, is ranked higher. Also a great film. The only personal favourite I was the only one voting for was Animals...

Highest unseen: #34 Calle Mayor, don't think this one of any of the others are on a high 'uregncy' list so that can take a few years when I dive into Spain again.

Nice list! Thanks Fergenaprido for hosting.

58/89. I worked on the Spanish lists a bit already. Only 5 titles in the top 50 unchecked, Placido being the one ranked highest of those.
I'll see you at the movies... Letterboxd - MovieMeter
