Haha, yeah, I somehow manage to squeeze all those things in while watching so many movies. Not that I think I'll be watching them this regularly throughout the year.

Pretty happy with my showing this year, even though I'll probably drop to 7th if and when rwebb updates. But next year I shall defeat you mightysparks, even if I have to alienate everyone I care about! (But seriously... well done!)

Vote: What are the Top 10 Most Invigorating Films of All Time?

1. Tout va Bien (Jean-Luc Godard, 1972)
2. A.I. Artificial Intelligence (Steven Spielberg, 2001)
3. Casualties of War (Brian De Palma, 1989)
4. Bonnie and Clyde (Arthur Penn, 1968)
5. His Girl Friday (Howard Hawks, 1941)
6. Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (Howard Hawks, 1953)
7. Mission to Mars (Brian De Palma, 2000)
8. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (Edgar Wright, 2010)
9. South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut (Trey Parker, 1999)
10. Show Me Love (Lukas Moodysson, 1998)

All these films strike me as landmark pictures within their own genre and they jumped out of me when I considered this category in the way that Zacharyyy originally did (which seems like the best way to approach this category, imo).

3. In a Lonely Place (Nicholas Ray, 1950)
4. Rear Window (Alfred Hitchcock, 1954)

16. Night of the Hunter (Charles Laughton, 1955)
17. Au hasard Balthazar (Robert Bresson, 1966)
18. Lawrence of Arabia (David Lean, 1962)
19. Femme Fatale (Brian De Palma, 2002)
20. Un Chien Andalou (Luis Bunuel, 1929)

After much agonising, this was about the best I could do in terms of putting together a list I was happy with. Would probably look way different if I did it all again tomorrow but I guess that's the nature of the beast. However, the films on this list are all masterpieces in my opinion -- it's just that there are so many other masterpieces too! (The seen and the unseen.)

Hi, I'd be delighted to contribute to these. Will try to get my votes in to these polls as soon as possible.

The slashes indicate a rewatch of a film I'd already seen before. So I've not yet been lucky enough to have seen the great Rear Window in theatres.

Have you contacted an admin about it?
It seems to me that all the links are what's triggering the spam filter (when I added a link to the scoreboard on my 2012 list, I had to fill out a CAPTCHA but I've been getting a "warning" about "line 175" for weeks now), but you can hardly run the scoreboard without links to the participants' logs.
