Thank you so much for hosting, Teproc!

Such a great year for films. Slightly disappointed Die Parallelstrasse landed on 21st, just 2 points away from the top 20, but great to see it has the support it has and hopefully even more people will seek it out because of this.

Seen 65/80, with my top 5 unseen being:

42. Experiment in Terror
49. The Music Man
54. Alyonka
55. Le septième juré
56. The Four Days of Naples

A Kind of Loving is likely my biggest priority of the unseen, while The World's Greatest Sinner is a film that has been on my radar forever (I think someone on FG3 had it as one of their favourite films). The biggest omission is clearly The Music Man, which is on a whole 6 lists... Need to get to that. I love Duvivier so The Burning Court is also a film I should be getting around to, though his late work is usually good rather than great. I have never been a big Rocha fan, Barravento should definitely be a priority as well, and a decent opportunity to check if I have changed my opinion on his early style and possibly be inspired to revisit his bigger works.

Thank you! A great year indeed. Glad to see that 'I Giorni Contati' made it even if at the very bottom. The one that I'm missing from the top 25 is 'Lonely Are the Brave'; I'll definitely keep this one in mind for whenever I feel like watching westerns.

Was my submission not included. I had Jules et Jim #1, but don't see that noted on the list above, nor my handle among the voters.

Thanks Teproc. Can't say there are huge surprises, though the Varda and Truffaut films didn't do as well as I would have guessed - thought those would be top 10 for sure. I guess it's just an amazingly competitive year. Please to see La jetée at #3 - I'm guessing that's the highest any post-silent-era short has placed.

Still plenty unseen for me though I did catch a few in the past few weeks, some of which made it to my list. Tops yet to watch:

23 - Les dimanches de Ville d'Avray
26 - The Miracle Worker
32 - Advise & Consent
It was the truth, vivid and monstrous, that all the while he had waited the wait was itself his portion..

Chalk this up to me watching it last-minute! Ended up fairly high up in my ratings. With that and An Autumn Afternoon, they bumped How the West Was Won and Antoine et Colette off my lists, which tbh probably wouldn't have made much of a difference.

Added comparisons to the previous poll and included cinewest's ballot. No major changes, though there are quite a few films swapping around in the top 20, most notably El angel exterminador taking La jetée's spot on the podium.

Only got around to one 1962 film last month for this poll, and I forgot to post my ballot after watching it Thursday night before going away for the weekend. :facepalm:
That film (The Temple of Wild Geese) didn't even end up making my top 20 (would have been 21st probably), so I should have posted it beforehand.

Here's what my list would have been, with apologies to the fans of these films:

1. To Kill a Mockingbird
2. Ivan's Childhood
3. Lawrence of Arabia
4. The Graceful Brute
5. The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
6. Seppuku [Harakiri]
7. Knife in the Water
8. Billy Budd
9. My Financial Career
10. Sanjuro
11. The Devil's Trap
12. The Elusive Corporal
13. A Kind of Loving
14. Alyonka
15. Cléo form 5 to 7
16. The Eclipse
17. Nahanni
18. Lonely Boy
19. The Given Word
20. Assault on the Pay Train

I think only The Graceful Brute would have jumped up a fair bit with my ballot. Also just realized that Le doulos is 1962 here (I have it as 1963 with an asterisk in my sheet), so that would have made my list around #15.

I'll go post my 1971 list now so that the same thing doesn't happen again this month.
