Interesting that 3 of the 6 are Spanish language (I hadn’t noticed that). I haven’t noticed any particular bias against Spanish language films, though I think Saura does deserve more attention than he receives, especially in the 500<400 poll.

I do think there is a bias against contemporary Latin American cinema, which is much stronger than advertised, and my sense is that it is one of cultural disconnect more than anything (I am guessing the vast majority of participants in these polls are white males of Northern European origin between 25 and 40).

That might also explain some of the neglect Fellini gets on the board, though younger, fluffier filmmakers clearly inspired by him, like Wes Anderson, is a favorite, here. It might also explain some of the bias for films with a male orientation (like crime dramas), here.
With me it's also mostly a lack of interest, not a bias against spanish cinema in general.

I have actually gotten more into Latin American Cinema recently and I've definitely voted for more Latin American than Spanish films. It's still not much but much more than just Viridiana for Spain. I've voted for: The Exterminating Angel (Mexico), Limite (Brazil), Nazarin (Mexico), Simon of the Desert (Mexico), Los Olvidados (Mexico), The Holy Mountain (Mexico), Santa Sangre (Mexico), Memories of Underdevelopment (Cuba) and Iracema (Brazil). I know there's a lot of Bunuel on there but to be fair Spain would not have made it all without Bunuel. I would also add that La Flor (Argentina) was really close. I half regret not voting for it. I've also seen a Latin American film just yesterday with Raul Ruiz' Palomita Blanca which I liked quite a lot. I could also see one of Ruiz' Chilean films sneaking on my list once I see more of them. I'm quite sure II've seen much more Latin American cinema than Spanish cinema. I don't know if that is so unusual. Mexico alone is probably a bigger cinema country than Spain. Brazil and Argentina also have significant industries. During Franco's reign you also had many Spaniards work in Latin America and France instead (because Fascism sucks, also for art). Bunuel and Almendros both got their careers started for real in Latin America (Mexico and Cuba). They're the two Spanish filmmakers I admire the most. In general there's not many Spanish films I'm excited about watching. The only one that comes too mind is El Sur. For Latin America it feels like there is an entire host of them and so many more I've not even heard about.

When it comes to Fellini it's definitely not a bias of mine against Italian cinema. I love myself some Italian cinema, it's just that among the list of Italian directors I like Fellini doesn't rank very highly, Passolini, Rosselini, Antonioni, Bava and Visconti all rank among my favourite directors. But don't worry, I still gave Fellini better marks than any of the Andersons. And these days I kinda feel like watching his Roma film. At least I can agree with him that it's an amazing city so what could go wrong?

Note: Kudos to Tim for conducting the poll :cheers:

Edit: Mainstreet and those on TSPDT I'm a bit excited about also some of Almodovar's Back-catalouge maybe.
Lack of interest in something often contains an inherent bias, conscious or unconscious, for one reason or another.

You do realize that half the 10 movies from Latin America that you voted for were made by Bunuel, and that they are all pretty old (I specifically mentioned a possible bias against contemporary Latin American cinema, ie. Made in the past 20 years or so).

No matter. Just something I posited based on my observation of what gets attention around here, and what doesn’t.
Oh yeah, certainly, the world is full of biases. I would however say that I'm probably inherently more biased against East-Asian films than Spanish films which on the surface should be culturally similar to Italy, France and Portugal, all 3 cinemas that deeply fascinate me (France closely rivals the USA on my list). On top of that I'm very intruiged by Spanish history (which for example Bunuel toys around with in delightful fashion). So at least some of that must be the output. But then again Spain is a conservative country that was fascist for a very long time and the transition was arguably luke warm compared to Italy which was stormed by Partisans (and almost all my favourite directors from Italy were members of the Communist party - which is maybe also part of the reason I like Fellini less - and why many critics refuse to label him neorealist). I've hardly heard of a single noteworthy film from e.g. Italy's fascist period outside of the obvious beginning of neo-realism in the 40's (Ossessione, Rome Open City, etc.). There probably are one or two, don't get me wrong and I enjoyed Machiste in Hell for example but I've never seen anyone speak about it in a major way. Spain does actually have noteworthy films made in its fascist period. I'm probably just overlooking a lot of great spanish films, I don't deny that but if you'd chart me right now a lot of European countries would come before Spain :whistling: .

As for Latin America, yeah, there's a lot of Bunuel, I love Bunuel. My argument was that if we cut Bunuel Spain has nothing on my list. My list has an anti-contemporary bias in general and there are actually quite a few recent Latin-American films I highly enjoyed. As I already said La Flor probably should have made my list (and it's as long as 7 normal films). My list has 333 entries which is a small fraction of all the films I've seen and I'd maintain that on average I'm very lucky with my film picks. So me not including e.g. Zama or Stellet Licht doesn't mean I don't think they're great films. But of course I'm by no means an authority on Latin American cinema, I'm just genuinly intruiged by what I've seen and I do have a Latin American director in my top 5 (yes, Ruiz worked mostly in Europe but most if not all of his themes go back to his time in Chile - and I also enjoy his Chilean films). As a European I can say that these films are often closer to me than e.g. films from the US which often feel like fairy-tales. Iracema for example is actually a German co-production co-directed by a Brazilian cameraman who studied in Germany (and I assume has some kind of German descent perhaps) and many of the Latin American films I've seen seem to have a better understanding of their colonial history, of a fleeting, ever changing world vis a vis the USA which just treats the country like a cultural wasteland. The films that e.g. Ruiz and Llinas make are films about wanderers, passing developments that are deeply uncertain, they have a lot of gravity that is hard to attain for even some very strong US-American films. I actually once met a Bolivian guy at an entrance examination and we had to switch between German and English because I couldn't figure out what he spoke better. This would never happen with people from the USA. What I've seen is of course limited and pales compared to others on the forum but I'm certainly becomming more and more engaged in it, especially as availability increases.

And everybody focuses on my second sentence (I don't know what a oui problem is, though, Kongs :shrug: ) but I'm astonished that Le Corbeau is outside our top 1000 while Le Salaire de la Peur is in our top 50, and the popularity of Le Corbeau and Le Salaire de la Peur in France are not that different
That's a good observation. The battle for my favourite Cluzot is almost a free for all between the 3 obvious titles (quai des orfèvres isn't bad either). Le Corbeau is really an excellent film. But of course if L'inferno had been made...

I watched every single Cluzot film I've seen over Arte (maybe not Wages of Fear, not 100 % sure on that one but probably also Arte), so at least in Germany I can attest that our supply is fine.

@Torgo - My Cousin has watched Alexanderplatz. A friend of mine had seen Warum läuft Herr R Amok and recommended it (I only saw it years later). My brother has seen a few but that's probably not fair (he really enjoyed World on a Wire). My primary school teacher mentioned Angst Essen Seele auf in like 4th grade or something and the title made a huge impression on me (it was like the first one I watched). Teachers love Fassbinder, otherwise they are probably not real teachers. Somewhere out there there'll be teachers who still show their pupils Effie Briest and they all hate it with a burning passion (hard to blame them, even though the film has it's good sides too). Die Ehe der Maria Braun feels like something you could make ordinary people watch without warning them preemptively. It's just all around an exceptionally strong film and noone can say no to Schygulla. I'm also going to assume that I know more people that have at least seen some of Fassbinder's late work without me knowing it (and I'm discounting people in the film bubble).

Tim explained somewhere later that he had to do another small recalculation and it would effect some of the last rankings in the poll. (Mistakes happen and he hasn't done this huge poll before, no problem there)
Had we already controlled if there were separate votes for Das Boot and the Das Boot mini-series by the way :ermm:

Pedro CostA, and Tsai each with two films of this list leads me to wonder who didn’t vote this year?
Looks quite like that, huh? Could also be that those have been overvoted & outranked by the influx of young, inexperienced low-brow mainstream ICMers with all their Nolans. Probably more of the first with a little bit of the latter.

I like some fart jokes, but they have to be well-executed, and Good Morning just really grates on my nerves in that regard. It's the favorite film of a close friend and I honestly don't even like it. A Bob's Burgers fart joke, though? Count me in.

Be carefull what you wish for, next thing you know the list might be 80 % Classical Hollywood.

Ok, to be fair I actually have no clue how the age of the voters here skews and what people vote for. Maybe they all have Out 1 in their top 10 and adore Iranian cinema like you and us youngsters mess everything up because we've just seen Nolan do a match-cut for the first time in our lives :$ .
