BCB's Top 100 Films Poll (2017 edition) - RESULTS!! #100-90 UP

Postby algroth » 16 Mar 2017, 04:33

So, it's been a while since we last did this, I think, and it would be interesting to do a new poll. We'll keep the same rules as the previous polls, which are as follows:

You will need to send a PM including FIFTY (50) films, with up to 250 points distributed as you wish among them (5 per film being the neutral amount). The list will be determined by the number of votes first, and by the total amount of points second. If the film is not in the English language, then please write both the original title and its English translation. Include year and director for each film, that way I don't get the films mixed up.

Not obligatory, but please try to respect the following layout, avoiding the enumeration at the start, as it'll make things easier for me:

*Original film title* [*Translated film title, if applicable*] (*director*, *year*) - *score*

Example:

The Godfather (Francis Ford Coppola, 1972) - 8
Citizen Kane (Orson Welles, 1941) - 5
Ladri di biciclette [The Bicycle Thieves] (Vittorio de Sica, 1948) - 2
etc.

To take part, all you have to do is send me the lists via PM before May 1st. Hope to see plenty of lists by that date! :)

At long last, THE RESULTS (WARNING - for the most part I've tried the best I could to find the original trailers, or at least clips which were representative enough of the film in order to complement the list as samples, but it is necessary to point out that some of these, despite being the official trailers of the time, contain spoilers):

Boyhood (2014)
Directed by Richard Linklater

There has never been another movie like Boyhood, from director Richard Linklater. An event film of the utmost modesty, it was shot over the course of twelve years in the director’s native Texas and charts the physical and emotional changes experienced by a child named Mason (Ellar Coltrane), his divorced parents (Patricia Arquette, who won an Oscar for her performance, and Ethan Hawke), and his older sister (Lorelei Linklater). Alighting not on milestones but on the small, in-between moments that make up lives, Linklater fashions a flawlessly acted, often funny portrait that flows effortlessly from one year to the next. Allowing us to watch people age on film with documentary realism while gripping us in a fictional narrative of exquisite everydayness, Boyhood has a power that only the art of cinema could harness. --Criterion Collection

Naked (1993)
Directed by Mike Leigh

The brilliant and controversial Naked, from director Mike Leigh, stars David Thewlis as Johnny, a charming and eloquent but relentlessly vicious drifter. Rejecting anyone who might care for him, the volcanic Johnny hurls himself around London on a nocturnal odyssey, colliding with a succession of other desperate and dispossessed people and scorching everyone in his path. With a virtuoso script and raw performances from Thewlis and costars Katrin Cartlidge and Lesley Sharp, Leigh’s depiction of England’s underbelly is an amalgam of black comedy and doomsday prophecy that took the best director and best actor prizes at the 1993 Cannes Film Festival. --Criterion Collection

But Hanna, a man driven through life only by his work, becomes obsessed, at the expense of his private life, with bringing McCauley down.

After all the customers have left and the bank is about to close, they, armed, proceed to rob it. But the robbery does not go according to Sonny's plan, he who is the leader. One problem after another arises, which ultimately leads to a standoff, them locked inside with ten hostages - the male bank manager, the male security guard, and eight female tellers and clerks - and the police, the media and a hoard of on-lookers outside. Despite Sonny and Sal having a suicide pact if things go wrong, Sonny tries to negotiate a way out, he figuring that the hostages are their only saving grace. As Sonny deals with the authorities - primarily "good cop" Moretti who seems to give Sonny whatever he wants, and "bad cop" Sheldon, an FBI agent who plays hardball with Sonny - the public, watching the interactions, have mixed emotions about what Sonny is doing, some who are sympathetic to him as a person. As the situation turns into a circus both inside and outside the bank, the emotions are brought up a notch when Sonny's second wife is brought to the scene, "she" who is able to shed some light on why Sonny needs the money. As day turns to night, the standoff continues until... --Huggo (IMDb.com)

Platoon (1986)
Directed by Oliver Stone

Chris Taylor is a young, naive American who gives up college and volunteers for combat in Vietnam. Upon arrival, he quickly discovers that his presence is quite nonessential, and is considered insignificant to the other soldiers, as he has not fought for as long as the rest of them and felt the effects of combat. Chris has two non-commissioned officers, the ill-tempered and indestructible Staff Sergeant Robert Barnes and the more pleasant and cooperative Sergeant Elias Grodin. A line is drawn between the two NCOs and a number of men in the platoon when an illegal killing occurs during a village raid. As the war continues, Chris himself draws towards psychological meltdown. And as he struggles for survival, he soon realizes he is fighting two battles, the conflict with the enemy and the conflict between the men within his platoon. --Jeremy Thompson (IMDb.com)

Days of Heaven (1978)
Directed by Terrence Malick

One-of-a-kind filmmaker-philosopher Terrence Malick has created some of the most visually arresting films of the twentieth century, and his glorious period tragedy Days of Heaven, featuring Oscar-winning cinematography by Nestor Almendros, stands out among them. In 1910, a Chicago steelworker (Richard Gere) accidentally kills his supervisor, and he, his girlfriend (Brooke Adams), and his little sister (Linda Manz) flee to the Texas panhandle, where they find work harvesting wheat in the fields of a stoic farmer (Sam Shepard). A love triangle, a swarm of locusts, a hellish fire—Malick captures it all with dreamlike authenticity, creating a timeless American idyll that is also a gritty evocation of turn-of-the-century labor. --Criterion Collection

:( Yeah, it's definitely handy to have. I'm in the process of transferring all of my ratings to RYM/Cinemos and using that as my database from now on, being that with the boards' closure I see little reason to keep the account I right now have. Hope to see you take part, all the same!

I have a RYM account, but I haven't used it in years. Whenever I look at the site now it seems to take forever to load (usually if I'm online I'm using my phone, maybe that's why?)so I try to avoid using it. I might get around to this. Looks fun, even if it will be a lot of work.
