Year by Year Polls: 1953

#1

Post by gromit82 »

Welcome to the Year by Year Poll!

This poll is for the year 1953.

These polls are fairly simple. We work our way through film history selecting a different year each time, and you list your top films from the given year. Depending on the number of voters, the poll usually produces a list of around 50-90 films and is a great way of finding recommendations. You can also list other films outside your top 20 as honorable mentions or runners-up.

The Rules

- You can vote for a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 20 films.

- Feature films, documentaries, short films, TV movies, and TV mini-series are all eligible, but not continuing TV series or individual TV episodes.

- We use IMDb dates for consistency, so a title should be listed on IMDb as 1953 (unless a specific film has been otherwise declared eligible).

- Your ballot can be either ranked or unranked, but for ranked ballots, your list must be numbered. Partially ranked lists (where a certain number at the top are ranked, and the rest are unranked) are allowed. Please make sure that what you mean to do with your list is clear.

- IMPORTANT: Along with a list of the titles from 1953, please include the corresponding list of bare IMDb urls for the same films. Your ballot cannot be counted if the IMDb urls are not included. (And if you list only the URLs but not the films' titles, you'll significantly reduce your fellow voters' enjoyment of this poll, so please make sure to include both titles and URLs.)

- Please note, you must post your URL list yourself rather than having someone else do that for you.

The Scoring

For ranked ballots, the top-ranked title will receive a number of points equal to the number of titles on the ballot, with each succeeding title receiving one fewer point. So the top title on a list of 20 films will receive 20 points, the next 19 points, and so on. If the list has only 10 films, the top title will receive 10 points, the next one 9, and so on. If there are 5 films on the list, the top film will receive 5 points, the next one 4, etc. You get the idea.

For unranked ballots, each title will receive an equal share of the total points that would have been allotted to the ballot if it had been ranked. If there are 20 films on the ballot, this means each one would receive 10.5 points.

- For the first time (I think) I am compelled to include a short, because it is my number one choice for the year.
- I Vitelloni might actually be my number two choice, but I already bumped its rating up from an 8 to an 8.5 when compiling this list, so it feels unfair, but in my mind that movie has really grown to be an important movie since I've seen it, because I became aware of its huge influence on subsequent films and filmmakers in the meantime (and it's a beautiful film too, the first great personal masterpiece in Fellinis' impressive ouvre).

Interesting year. For me, only one or two great films but a bunch of pretty good ones, including lesser works of great directors like Reed, Fellini and Wilder, and some quality noirs. Also a relatively rare year in which the Academy probably did a decent job, especially if noirs/westerns/non-English content are filtered out.

1. Le salaire de la peur - The Wages of Fear (Henri-Georges Clouzot)
2. Les vacances de Monsieur Hulot - Monsieur Hulot's Holiday (Jacques Tati)
3. Niagara (Henry Hathaway)
4. Sommaren med Monika - Summer with Monika (Ingmar Bergman)
5. The Naked Spur (Anthony Mann)
6. Bienvenido Mister Marshall (Luis Garcia Berlanga)
7. Julius Caesar (Joseph L. Mankiewicz)
8. The Big Heat (Fritz Lang)
9. Pickup on South Street (Samuel Fuller)
10. The Man Between (Carol Reed)
11. Ugetsu (Kenji Mizoguchi)
12. I Vitelloni (Federico Fellini)
13. Tôkyô monogatari - Tokyo Story (Yasujiro Ozu)
14. Duck Amuck (Chuck Jones)
15. Roman Holiday (William Wyler)
16. From Here to Eternity (Fred Zinnemann)
17. Stalag 17 (Billy Wilder)
18. Jigokumon - Gate of Hell (Teinosuke Kinugasa)
19. I Confess (Alfred Hitchcock)
20. The Sun Shines Bright (John Ford)

I've extended the deadline to Friday, May 27. This is due in part to the fact that I had previously set the deadline for "Monday, May 22," which is not an actual day this year.

Thanks to everyone who has voted so far.
