Sansho the Baliff +2
Woman in the Dunes +2

Kobayashi and Teshigahara take the top spots for Japan. My #1 and #3 favorite Japanese directors respectively. Looks like Mizo is in as well (gotta see more from him). I’ll drink to that!

My head is spinning, what has been going on with the Sansho love? The Cameraman, Woman of the Dunes, 3 Women, Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors, all seem to be doing well. All very good, Buster Keaton is great, though i prefer some others by him, and for Paradjanov, Colour of Pomegranates is my favourite.

So,

Sansho the Bailiff +2
Yeelen + 2 (for Africa)

A Man Escaped -1 (very good but i’m not a fan of Bresson generally)
The Age of the Earth -1 (wish it had been another Rocha)

I’ll spare the others, i’ve previously voted down a few, but it’s a strong line-up.

hope Blackbird makes the cut, and big love to Celine + Julie too. Juliet Berto was such a tragic young loss, so vivacious and lovely in the film.

Blwyddyn Newydd Dda to everyone, and huge thanks to Polaris for all the incredible work- i’m busy totting up for the short films poll and that’s hard work, never mind months of it!

The Executioner +2
Once upon a Time there was a Singing Blackbird +2
The Age of the Earth -1
La Cienaga -1
Jeanne Dielman, Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles -1
3 Women -1

After firing Joan of Arc and Andrei Rublev I think the work is done. This round is just cruelty.
Seen 21/22, none of them among my all-time favorites but only one that I really hate.

I got Sansho, Cameraman, Shadows of Forgotten Ancesters as 1, 2, 3. But I could be wrong.

Mods, if this and the other top 20 related threads could be closed at this time that would be nice.

For anyone who’s interested, I created a tournament bracket of the top 32 films from this game just to see how this game would play out in a different format:

I missed the last round due to family issues. Fortunately my last darling made ​​the cut.

Thanks for the hard work.
