DaMU wrote:THE CONVERSATION (Francis Ford Coppola, 1974)

This movie carries an attitude I can recognize: I'm proud of the work I do, and the work I do is killing me. The flick's mystery generates great suspense and one hell of a surprise at the end, and Hackman's Harry Caul breaks the heart as a man caught between pride and loneliness.
I just watched this for the first time this year as well, and while I thought it could've been better if the pacing/plot was a little less thin and stretched-out (the after-convention party scene probably should've lasted half as long as it ended up), I still really enjoyed the wonderfully paranoid, disquieting atmosphere of the film's best moments a lot anyway (that scene where
Harry's trapped in the elevator with his target, wow!).

I really liked this one. Compared to what I've heard about the Sex and the City movies and Entourage, which I'll never see because they're apparently terrible, I think it steered clear of not reveling in hedonism and materialism.
Awkafina's character's reactions, the obnoxiousness of Bernard, Nick's mother's regrets, etc.
provide a humanizing undercurrent that did a good job at making all that wealth not seem like a celebration of greed, but, well...crazy.

This is a nice throwback. I had a VHS tape of this one (dubbed from either IFC or Sundance back when they were still showing independent/underground film), must have been from '02, and I shared it around a lot for a couple of years but forgot about it. It is a fine piece of work.

2019 Best Picture Oscar nominees ranked:

1. Roma
2. The Favourite
3. A Star is Born
4. BlacKkKlansman
5. Black Panther
6. Green Book
7. Vice
8. Bohemian Rhapsody

The first two are the only ones that deserve the nomination. 3-5 are solid films overall, and #6 is somewhat of a guilty Oscar bait pleasure. 7-8 are the only films in the bunch I dislike.

I've only seen the 3 "bolded" ones, but would probably rank them like you. I also agree with your assessment about those three.

Nice to see a list that isn't the general boring orthodoxy. And one where I probably haven't seen about half of the films listed.

I really need to finish The Human Condition. I watched the first film about five years ago, and just fizzled out. It was just so daunting.

The decision to name so many of those in their native language caused a few goof-ups for me. Had to do some Googling.

26. AN OCCURRENCE AT OWL CREEK BRIDGE
29. UMBERTO D
39. PLAYTIME
40. CITIZEN KANE

77. TOKYO STORY
81. ORPHEE
83. RASHOMON
88. THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTER
93. BATTLESHIP POTEMKIN
99. ONE FROGGY EVENING

16 is better than I thought once I started seeing all those eye-crossing names. Here are some of them with translations:

3. IL CASO MATTEI (The Mattei Affair)
10. LES JEUX INTERDITS (Forbidden Games)
14. LA REGLE DU JEU (The Rules of the Game)
17. ROMA CITTA APERTA (Rome Open City)

27. ANGST ESSEN SEELE AUF (Ali: Fear Eats the Soul)
33. MENSCHEN UNTEREINANDER (People to Each Other)

47. KEETJE TIPPEL (Katie Tippel)
55. LE FEU FOLLET (The Fire Within)
58. IL GATTOPARDO (The Leopard)
59. VARIETE (y'know, Variety)
65. LE BOUCHER (The Butcher)
68. LE JOURNAL D’UNE FEMME DE CHAMBRE (Diary of a Chambermaid)
72. LE COEUR BATTANT (The French Game)

I think it's Bergman's The Passion of Anna. En Passion is the original title according to IMDB.

That one happens to be literally #21 lol. Here's what I wrote about it:

B+

A shame about that last episode, and the tendency to cram endless monologues after monologues during the second half (no matter how well acted many of these are), because this feels a hair away from a horror series high water mark. Even that finale, kind of awful from a plot standpoint, manages to get by emotionally a bit with superb direction and performances. This really feels like all of Flanagan's skill and pet theme -- past trauma framing present horror -- done maximally and often magnificently, especially in its best stretch (4 through 6, the twin episodes and the long-take one). I actually have a few gripes with the sixth episode's conception, such as how the long takes magnify some performance tics that go past natural awkwardness into outright flaw (sorry, Timothy Hutton), but overall it's an ambitious endeavor that bleeds the past and the present so well emotionally. And of course the fifth is a heartbreaker, and the fourth may personally contain Flanagan's most frightening creation for me, with that floating old man with his crane knocking on the floor as he goes.

Flanagan's most impressive technical achievement may be the casting and direction of five Crain kids though. Not only are their performances so good in of themselves (frankly, how he manages to direct them in episode six's long takes so naturally -- which must already be hell even without factoring in the actors being this young -- is kind of astonishing), but they also do resemble their adult counterparts (well, except maybe Luke), with all their tics and personalities uncannily syncing up so well; I'm thinking especially of how McKenna Grace's corner-mouth smile evokes the defensive deadpan apathy of adult Theo perfectly. What five remarkable finds.

Good write-up. I agree that it didn't quite stick the landing - I'll admit to getting drowsy during the finale, which I didn't during any other episode - but the journey there and everything else you mention was enough to put it at my top spot.
Believe it or not, Wild Wild Country, your #20, was my #2. Are we evil twins? :D

Some of the Dutch and Belgian movies on that list I haven't seen such as De Noorderlingen and Borgman (which, unfortunately, is not about Locutus of Borg, but I'm still intrigued) are on Amazon Prime. Sweet.

Both are great movies. I know some people found De Noorderlingen/The Northerners to be "too Dutch" for their taste, but I think its a brilliant satire about the narrow-mindedness that ruled 1950s Holland. Borgman is what you'd get if David Lynch directed Funny Games.

I've seen only 54 of those. Time to stop calling yourself a noob?
