Doubling the Canon Nominations Challenge



Goal
Watch as many Doubling the Canon Nominees as you can from 1 April 2019 to 30 April 2019.

Rules
- Each feature film (over 40 minutes) counts as one entry.
- 60 minutes of short films counts as one entry.
- Episodes of miniseries follow the standard 40/60 rule.
- Rewatches are allowed and good for the soul.
- Please include year of release when listing your viewings.

Stats & Formatting:
- Title (year) is the preferred format
- For Miniseries episodes, please use "Series Title: Episode Title" as the title
- New posts are preferred over edited posts

List of Eligible Films:
Doubling the Canon Nominees - ICM list
Doubling the Canon Nominees - IMDB list

That's it. If it's not on that list, it's not eligible for this challenge.

DtC Nominees with only 1 vote <-- Thanks, Angel!


BONUS GAME: Promote Your DtC Nominees!

This is an unofficial side game with its own rules to allow you to promote your (or others') DtC Nominees. I would encourage everyone to play along as much as they are willing/able to do so to help view/promote our forum folk's favorites.

Bonus Game Rules:
- To play, you must participate in the Official challenge. To participate, you must watch and record at least one film in the thread.
- You are allowed to "promote" one of your DtC nominees - it gets listed in the OP and becomes a film eligible for the bonus game.
- If you watch 5 other people's films for the bonus game, you can "promote" another film.
- If 5 4 other people watch your film for the bonus game, you can "promote" another film.
- No watching your own nominees for the bonus game (they, of course, count for the official challenge).
- Shorts and miniseries all count the same for the bonus challenge - use strategery when choosing what to promote.
- Post an ICM link to your film along with the name of the film you're promoting.

A couple tips:
- Post early, so your film has more of a chance to be seen
- Post your first film promotion along with your first watch for the challenge

Love the photo in the OP. Can you tell us where it is? It reminds me of Edinburgh in terms of the look of the buildings, but it's definitely not Edinburgh. Somewhere in the UK, though?

It'll go in the OP when you've participated in this challenge... you know... after it's started. :P :sarcasm:

I've seen at least 16 on Angel's list, including La neige etait sale which I saw in a theater in college.

I'm in but prolly not for very many.

Criterion Channel debuts Apr 8 if that's any help.

I'll do my best to keep up with the OP for the bonus game early on in the challenge so it'll be easy to see what's been promoted.

1. Clue (1985, maxwelldeux) #192
7th rewatch in the last 3 years. And my own nominee. I love it and find it amazing every time.

Bonus Game:
BabaKiueria (1986, Australia)

What if a land inhabited by White people were discovered by Black people? This hilarious short will answer that question.

1. Komissar (1967) [hurluberlu]


And I like to nominate The Music of Chance (1993) for the side challenge.
Image

The Music of Chance (1993)
Directed by: Philip Haas
Genres: Drama, Mystery
Runtime: 98min
91 checks
14 favs
0 official lists

Based on the novel (of the same name) by Paul Auster.

This gem is one of my favourite movies of all time (checkcount aside). It was screened in the Un Certain Regard section at the 1993 Cannes Film Festival, but has since then been unfairly overlooked/forgotten.

I’m not going to say much about it other than that James Spader is absolute incredible in this, and I can tease you with this quote:
Ah hell. Nobody really knows what it’s about. It’s about everything and nothing. It’s a multi-layered philosophical masterpiece or an absurdest grim fairy tale about two losers laying brick.

In!
Watched Hakuja Den (1958) tonight
An ok telling of the Chinese fairytale, but lacking in depth as it is clearly aimed at children
A small 7 on a scale of 10 for me (i'll aply Doubling rankings at the end of the month)

If i may promote one of my own nominees, i'll pick one that is not extremely challenging and that will get hopelessly overlooked without any kind of spotlight on it
(But see them all obviously :))
