I bet Blocho wanted to save a better film for the next round, which proved to be a terrible mistake.

From the last 5 voters, Burkina Faso got four #1-votes and one #2-vote, so the gap between 2 and 3 is getting bigger indeed.

But remember the difference is only 6 wins at the moment. If the two next people vote Iran at #1 and Burkina Faso at #4, the gap has been closed.

Hell no, we count on everyone's honesty when it comes to voting. Otherwise the whole thing would turn out as senseless circus.

Ya'll are no fun! :P

Honestly, my top two could've gone either way. Russia was definitely 3rd, and Burkina Faso definitely last. If Burkina Faso would've gone with the first instead of the sequel, I probably would've voted for it over Russia.

So, I finished the first bunch. I have to be perfectly honest and say that I wasn't tht impressed with the selected films in terms of quality, but I appreciate the process of selecting the films. Overall, all 4 are rather close-ish for me, still I didn't have that hard of a time when it came to ranking them.

1. Buud Yam - 7/10
Good classic adventure plot of an outsider having to go on a difficult journey to safe someone close to him, and in turn also gain the respect of his peers. I liked the straithforward simplicity and the distinct african vibes.

2. Gavaznha - 7/10
Intersting in the way that it shows Iran in the time before it became a theocrcy and showing parts of the underbelly of that society. Not a lot of films about drug users from Islamic countries. I assume this was quite a bit influenced by both neo-realism but also thenew wave. And the laconic drug user as the lead is quite likeable and easy to root for.

3. Ne okreci se sine - 6,5/10
Solid WWII guy -on-the-run film. It features a kid too, and as such will easily get into the next round. Nothing bad about it, but not much that I haven't seen in the same or better fashion from similar films. It's interesting in the way that I haven't seen such stories from a Balkan perspective that often.

4. Kholodnoe leto pyatdesyat tretego - 6/10
I liked the naturalistic look of the film and the main character. But the villains were a bit flat and only pure evil and the whole execution didn't particularly impress me either. Perhaps there were a lot of political subtleties that eluded me, but I didn't get terrible much out of the film.
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

No, I always wonder how someone could screw up such an extensive pool of good films such as Russian cinema.
Yet few of you have still seen Splash Splash Love :lol: - gotta be a ultimate Raspberry Award not only among all 206 WC films ever programmed, but most likely EVER - considering even future, no less.

But well it's a pretty good movie (not that I remember it). I guess it's a bit too mainstream.

OK Mario, you're winning this round. Say what you want about the movie I chose, but I don't see the need to put me down. I don't know why it's so hard to believe, but I really, really like Cold Summer of 53, and I hoped by choosing it that I could share a good movie with others. I'm sorry so many did not enjoy it.

I was surprised by the reaction to this movie, i fucking loved it, i thought the story was cool and the music and cinematography were great, maybe most people expected a drama character driven critique of stalinism, and i was expecting a cool ostern like White sun of the desert, and this was even better

Anyway i'm glad you chose it, because i had never heard of it before

I found nothing wrong with it. It's just I liked a couple of the others much, much better. ;) If my opinion matters on these sort of things. I'm sure that's the majority opinion on this, as I see very few people really thrashing it in this thread.

OK, my final ranking:

1. Kholodnoe leto pyatdesyat tretego
2. Ne okreći se sine
3. Gavaznha
4. Buud Yam

Tbh, I wasn't impressed with the selection, but I certainly didn't hate any of the films either.

Top 20 Croatian Films by Croatian Film Critics
This is what I did last season when I managed Croatia :teehee: I'm still going to finish that list; recently acquired a few more films. Sadly, a few still don't have subs (though Mario has been great at uploading them for some films).

Mario was upset I didn't bother to see Martin in time for the second round :p Finally managed to watch it a few months ago and it was good.

Also, The other film I was considering for round 2 was Rondo, and it just entered the iCM Most Favourite List, much to my surprise, so check that out too.

I'm working my way through this list; albeit slowly!

Top 20 Croatian Films by Croatian Film Critics
This is what I did last season when I managed Croatia :teehee: I'm still going to finish that list; recently acquired a few more films. Sadly, a few still don't have subs (though Mario has been great at uploading them for some films).

Mario was upset I didn't bother to see Martin in time for the second round :p Finally managed to watch it a few months ago and it was good.

Also, The other film I was considering for round 2 was Rondo, and it just entered the iCM Most Favourite List, much to my surprise, so check that out too.
That poll was held in 1999 I believe, but it had 25 films - not 20. This is the full line-up:

Personally I think it's a pretty accurate one though I would throw out Bitka na Neretvi and put something else there; frankly you don't need to subject yourself to that horrid political pamphlet.

1. My Son, Don't Turn Around.. 67.. Except for the terrible title this amalgamation of noir and neo realism held its position well throughot the film.

2. Buud Yam.. 65.. My African film interest level is too low. But this film engaged me from the beginning to the end and convinced me to go for African binge. Got interested in Kuuni character that I will now DL and watch the first part.

3. Cold Summer of 1953.. 62.. I stopped caring about the plot and enjoying the scenery and the great music. I will probably forget the whats the plot about but this seaside village will be etched forever in my memory.

4. The Deer.. 54.. I have watched this kind of film in India day in and day out so nothing special about this for me. That character with glasses was cool. Could have liked the film more if it explored more on him. The lead's voice was kind of annoying but his acting was solid.

It seems that my taste simply does not fit with this forum :sweat:
At least I hope The Deer can enter 500<400 list, and its place in DTC won't be shaken by this game. :whistling:

Anyway, glad to see many new faces here.
Which good old buddies of the past WC haven't voted yet?

I had it on my 500<400 list last year, and probably give it a 6 if it were to come up for a DTC vote.. That being said, there are other Iranian films I love a whole lot more, and probably would've stood a better chance.

“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ (Matthew 25:37-40)
