3 Idiots is in the Top 20 and you're trying to tell me this list is worth anyone's time? :whistling:
Kidding aside, thanks for posting and linking all these, dirty_ :thumbsup: The Top 10 of the Bollywood list seem like a quite solid take actually, not incidentally so similar to the first 11 on Outlook; and everyone knows it's not the ultimate India list we could have.

Thanks, Armo. You're a true gangster for me.
Is it intended that the 9 drop-offs are still on (at the end of the) list?

ICM has been waiting for a dedicated giallo toplist, so this made me happy. But not knowing the source, it not looking entirely essential and the inclusion of a Spanish horror makes me think this isn't that well curated list we've all been waiting for perhaps... so, that's a shame

I think you've mistaken Nick Cage's Vampire's Kiss with a horror porno, Armo :P

I just addded this critic top 50 to ICM (52 entries because Arabian Nights is a trilogy of movies that are one project; also release simultaneously, thus mentioned as a singly entity in this top list). It seems to me like an excellent cross-section of the type of cinephile/festival movie that Rosenbaum is also known for. I've only just taken a deeper dive on this Jordan Cronk fella, but he seems to me to be totally on that, and my (seen 47/52), wavelength. Fun discovery! And if I would still be a list mod, I'd certainly suggest this as an option for an official critic list to cover this kind of arthouse for the more recent period... ;)

I've had that Arabian Nights trilogy in my Kanopy queue since the beginning and still haven't gotten around to trying it. For whatever reason, my Kanopy queue seems loaded with extra-long projects.

I'm wondering if anyone (especially French speakers) can find online versions of these books for me. I'm interested in the films that are covered (both for official list purposes but also for my own interests). I've followed the publisher links on most pages, but only one 25-page preview has been my success so far.

L'histoire fait son cinema en 100 films (2013)
Au sud du cinéma (2004)
Histoire générale cinéma du cinéma au Québec (2016)
Guide to the Cinema(s) of Canada (2001) - I found a local library with a hard copy that I might be able to get access to, but would prefer a digital resource
Les Cinémas de l'Amérique latine (1981)
L'Afrique par ses films (2019)

Many thanks in advance.

I tried a couple of places, but found nothing. Do you have access to Aaaaarg? They are not there, but loads of other books on cinema are.

For anyone interested, I've just added BFI's 100 Bible Films to ICM
Matthew Page traces the screen history of the biblical stories from the very earliest silent passion plays, via the golden ages of the biblical epic, through to more innovative and controversial later films as well as covering significant TV adaptations. He discusses films made not only by some of our greatest filmmakers, artists such as Martin Scorsese, Jean Luc Godard, Alice Guy, Roberto Rossellini, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Lotte Reiniger, Carl Dreyer and Luis Buñuel, but also those looking to explore their faith or share it with lovers of cinema the world over.
