sorry, unfortunately, your number 1 is not eligible to participate.
I also can't accept two films in one position.
03 Nymphomaniac: Volume I
04 Nymphomaniac: Volume II
Note that I saw Nymphomaniac at a premiere showing, we were camera linked with select cinemas all around Europe for a special premiere screening. Nymphomaniac was screened together in its entirety on that night, not as two volumes. My belief is that it is one film, and indeed I keep it as one film on my own top list, though it didn't make my top 10 movies of all time.
I don't envy your job because it's not just this one that's tricky, you will have different listings for Fanny and Alexander, TV and theatrical cuts.
Interesting point. I think sometimes IMDb can just be selective. For instance, another von Trier project was just randomly merged a few years ago: Riget and Riget 2. It used to be two mini-series, occasionally present on film lists as mini-series/serials often are, today they are considered a TV show
There are also reboots of shows that follow the same story, with the same name, etc, that is counted separately, like Fraiser (1993) and Fraiser (2023), Dr Who (1963) and Dr Who (2005), etc. And then we have serials and two-part films. Fantomas is somehow still counted as 5 individual (short) films, while Les Vampires does not even have the individual episodes listed and is just considered a long film.
War and Peace has to be the most bizarre listing, as the most common IMDb entry is a 6+ hour 4-part film, but each of the 4 parts it is made up of also have individual IMDb pages. Should Nymphomaniac get one?
Another obvious one is Grindhouse, where Death Proof and Planet Terror both have individual listings, as well as a joint listing.
