  1. By the bye, my ballot must have gotten lost in the mail or something. For those interested, in chronological order:

    1. Sherlock, Jr.
    2. Duck Soup
    3. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
    4. The Red Shoes
    5. Seven Samurai
    6. Rear Window
    7. Once Upon a Time in the West
    8. Pennies from Heaven
    9. In the Mood for Love
    10. The New World

  2. Tsai Ming-liang voted for his own film Goodbye Dragon Inn as well.

    1. Yeah, but at least other people voted for it as well. Blank knew this would be his only way of making the list.

    2. Guess he didn't want to get blanked.

  3. That's a great list. I'm a little surprised that you went with In the Mood over, say, Mullholland Dr. and Snow White as the top Disney.

  4. Well, as you well know the omissions speak louder than the inclusions at times. I mean, no Howard Hawks? That was really hard for me.

    I was surprised by Snow White as well. I have been ranking all of the films as I watch them, which I will post at the end of the year. I had plenty of expectations for something to surpass it, Pinocchio, Sleeping Beauty. Many have come close but none have done it. Snow White truly is a towering achievement. Worth every accolade. It is not only a significant film historically but also just a crackerjack entertainment.

    1. Yup. Just realized there's no Hitchcock on my list. Which is insane.
