Year-by-Year Polls: 2001

#1

Post by Rufus-T »

Welcome to the Year-by-Year Poll!

This poll is for the year 2001 ===> Also Sprach Zarathustra starts blasting

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. Lots of people will also list other films outside their 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 2001.

- Your ballot can be either ranked or unranked, but I will assume it's ranked unless otherwise stated. For ranked ballots it makes it easier if you use a numbered list.

- IMPORTANT: Along with a list of the titles from 2001, please include the corresponding list of bare IMDb urls for the same films. Your ballot will be deemed disqualified if the IMDb urls are not included.


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, well 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.

The absolute pinnacle year for modern Japanese cinema!!! So many huge favorites there and then even more strong 8's that can't make the list
(also a nice year for Dutch underground art and movies with exclaimation marks in the title ;))

1 - 5 - Aoi haru ( Blue Spring )
2 - 5 - Sen to Chihiro no kamikakushi ( Spirited Away )
3 - 5 - The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
4 - 5 - Avalon
5 - 5 - Mulholland Dr.
6 - 5 - Terrorama!

17 - 4 - Lovely Rita
18 - 4 - Kairo ( Pulse )
19 - 4 - Nabbeun namja ( Bad Guy )
20 - 4 - Lavoura Arcaica ( To the Left of the Father )
Spoiler
Everything on the list is (almost) 8.5 or higher on a scale out of 10 (ratings out of 5 added to the list)
These are honorable mentions that could maybe rotate out the last place(s) on another day:

Mesto na Zemle (2001)
Yazgi (2001)
Das Experiment (2001)
Itiraf (2001)
A Knight's Tale (2001)
Manic (2001)
Zoolander (2001)
In den Tag Hinein (2001)

the Demirkubuz movies are too vague in my memory atm and I think I don't like Zoolander's humor as much now as I did back then (when I thought it was one of the best comedy's ever!), especially since the sequel left a bad taste in my mouth... But all these had a big impact on me when I first saw them.

For those not already in the know: I solicit accessible <40min short films for these year polls - to help pad out my ballot, to encourage discussion, and to help others as well find films that they might now otherwise get to - but since they're shorts, hey it doesn't take that long to get around to them! So do please offer and recommend some 2001 shorts... MOAR SHORTS!

2001 was a damn good year, when I was watching a lot of movies, so I may have to add my cents. Very difficult to get down to 20, too, as there are at least twice that many that I could argue for.

Here's 12 that would definitely make it for me:

Lucia Y El Sexo
Mulholland Drive
Lavoura Arcaica
Y Tu Mama También
Atanajurat
Waking Life
Abril Despedaçado
No Man's Land
La Pianiste
L'emploi du temps
Monsoon Wedding
In the Bedroom

Possible final 8

Lantana
Nirgendwo in Afrika
Thirteen Conversations About One Thing
Akai hashi no shita no nurui mizu
Amelie
La Cienaga
Millennium Mambo
The Man Who Wasn't There

FYI, the site header says "2021" instead of "2001", if one of the mods could fix that.

Terrible year, art in general felt to me like it was on a life support machine at the turn of the millennium. Still I do have 10 (ranked):

Fantômes (2001 - Jean-Paul Civeyrac)
Trouble every day (2001 - Claire Denis)
Marfa şi banii / Stuff and Dough (2001 - Cristi Puiu)
Mulholland Dr. (2001 - David Lynch)
The Royal Tenenbaums (2001 - Wes Anderson)
ねこぢる草 / Nekojiru-sō / Cat Soup (2001 - Tatsuo Satô)
Kiss of the Dragon (2001 - Chris Nahon)
Dream Work (2001 - Peter Tscherkassky)
L.I.E. (2001 - Michael Cuesta)
Enemy at the Gates (2001 - Jean-Jacques Annaud)

Took me until last year to get a top 10 favourites from 2001, and I was an active cinemagoer at the time. Still, Last Year in Marienbad played at my local cinema at the time, and La Ronde.

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

Born in 1970! Unfortunately, I can't remember the first film I saw. The following three films that I saw when I was young left strong memories: Krakatit (1948, Vavra), Dance of the Vampires (1967, Polanski), Paper Moon (1973, Bogdanovich).

Ridiculous year. 3x 10/10 at the top for me with 8s going down into the #30-rankings or so. I remember how I recently struggled to make a worthwhile list for that lame year, what was it, 1992?, and here I will just forget about a few Japanese & Korean greats because there were too many :satstunned:

RANKED

Spirited Away [Sen to Chihiro no kamikakushi]
Mulholland Dr. 
Donnie Darko 
The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring 
Pulse [Kairo] 
Waking Life 
Monsters, Inc. 
The Man Who Wasn't There 
La pianiste 
Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain 
Cat Soup
Ocean's Eleven 
Ichi the Killer [Koroshiya 1]
The Royal Tenenbaums 
No Man's Land
Katakuri-ke no kôfuku 
Y tu mamá también 
A Beautiful Mind 
Blow 
Das Experiment 


Coming next: Monster's Ball, Le peuple migrateur, Das weiße Rauschen, A.I. Artificial Intelligence, Metoroporisu, Failan, Aoi haru, Vanilla Sky, Go, Sur mes lèvres, Bijitâ Q, Riri Shushu no subete, Zoolander, ...

Really unsure about #15-25 or so, it's been awfully long for me for A.I. and that Tom Cruise remake and so on.

OUT OF COMPETITION: ... ok fuck it, I usually don't do short films in these polls but if Cat Soup doesn't make it, it's literally my fault.

HMs: K-PAX, Session 9, The Others, Joy Ride, Lucía y el sexo, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Lammbock, Yeopgijeogin geunyeo, Sennen joyû, Nabbeun namja

Watchlist: Gosford Park, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Atanarjuat, L'emploi du temps, Trouble Every Day, What Time is It There?, Fulltime Killer, Intimacy, Pistol Opera, Prozac Nation, ...

Ahh I had this down as 2002. Move over Trinh T. Maybe I'll try to watch a few more and expand my list to 20 before the deadline, I'd feel bad leaving childhood staple Moulin Rouge off.

There's a hell of a short for you too Minkin!
