1955 Poll

MovieGu​ide1

over 1 year ago

What I’m asking you to do is to fill a ballot with some titles of your own choice. 1955 must be the year of first release (according to IMDb).

– Each person votes for up to 20 movies. Do not feel compelled to fill the maximum allowable number, only true favorites.
– There is no need to rank the films except the number 1, it gets two points.
– You may change your ballot as many times as you’d like.

A certain standardization of the outcome is predictable, but it is not our goal to establish a Canon. It’s just a game and individual votes are the true centers of attraction.

Results will be presented in a specially created Movie List.

Thank you in advance for joining us in this game.

I’m always surprised by the lack of enthusiasm for Tales of the Taira Clan, which the British critic John Gillett described as the best of all films.

@ KENJI

Haven’t seen the “Tales of the Taira Clan”, and happened to find “Princess Yang Kwei-fei” online. Shame Mizoguchi didn’t have more opportunities to work with color.
