Funny how in a year so full of "fuck rich c***s" films, a "rich c***" film ended up as #1.

Thanks Chris. I've updated this list on ICM: https://www.icheckmovies.com/listsettin ... ear+polls/

As usual with S+S there's a few repeats from last year due to UK release dates often coming the calendar year after festival debut:

High Life, Ray & Liz, Ash is Purest White, Hale County, Happy as Lazzaro, Transit, If Beale Street Could Talk, The Favourite

these can't feature on the list twice so if someone wants to make a list of just 2019, that would be useful too :thumbsup:
