List of Participants in the OP is updated to where I'm up to so far. If you make any changes to your ballots from this point on, please post to let me know so that I don't miss anything. Thanks.
Here are a few ineligible titles that I found in ballots.
The Killing of a Sacred Deer is Irish, so I'll add Baby Driver to the bottom of your ballot and shift everything else in between.
I don't remember seeing this in your ballot before, sorry if I missed it earlier. The Ghost Writer is a French/German production, so not eligible for this poll. You've still got time to edit your list and post a replacement.
This is an American production, so not eligible for this poll. Let me know if you want to add a replacement, or just go with 14 films.
Don't forget to add your links. You can find the rulings for all your films in the second post. Also, you put #16 twice, so your list currently has 18 films, not 17.pitchorneirda wrote: ↑December 4th, 2021, 4:24 pm 1. A Clockwork Orange (1971, Stanley Kubrick)

Work in progress, maybe it's time I'd watch some David Lean?
I'd need a ruling on The Favourite (Lanthimos), The Lobster (Lanthimos), Leviathan (Castaing-Taylor & Paravel) and Sleuth (Mankiewicz)
Also, I dug a little deeper on Brooklyn, and I'm sticking with it being British.
"The project is being developed by producers Finola Dwyer and Amanda Posey of London-based Wildgaze Films, who previously made “An Education.”
Novelist and screenwriter Nick Hornby, who wrote “An Education” and is also a non-exec director of Wildgaze, penned the adaptation of “Brooklyn,” with the backing of BBC Films. The novel was first published in 2009."
"John Crowley (“Intermission”) directs from Nick Hornby’s adaptation of Colm Toibin’s novel. Producers are Finola Dwyer and Amanda Posey (“Quartet”)
The script was developed by BBC Films, and the co-producers are Parallel Films in Ireland and Item 7 in Canada."
"The 16 films in this section are world premieres, and are from the U.S. unless otherwise noted.
“Brooklyn” (U.K.) (Director: John Crowley, Screenwriter: Nick Hornby, based on the book by Colm Toibin) — 1950s Ireland: Eilis must confront a terrible dilemma — a heartbreaking choice between two men and two countries, between duty and true love. Cast: Saoirse Ronan, Domhnall Gleeson, Emory Cohen, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent."
