Hey, Ho! Let's Go!

A little bit of house clearing. I had to throw out the votes for Rope, Meet Me In St. Louis, The Rules of the Game and The Conformist which don't fit in this period.

Surprised Caine Mutiny is so low...one of Bogies great performances. Spartacus- the first of 5 from Kubrick to make the list. That looks about right for Charade.

I can't believe glen or glenda wasn't higher. Or maybe I was too high when I watched that movie. It is hard to believe that that movie even gets a 3.3 rating from IMDB. Just bought the criterion of Spartacus the other day. Never saw it before, but it was actually pretty great. Probably would have voted for it if I saw it before the polls closed, but I think I can live with its placement.

Glen Or Glenda is more of an esoteric viewing than Plan 9. With Plan 9, you can get drunk with your buds and laugh at its sheer ineptitude, but with Glen, it's a whole different experience...its sincerity coupled with its lurid storylines, grade Z acting chops and set design amongst its avant-garde trappings makes ones jaw drop.

Anyone who loves Guy Madden and early David Lynch should get into this movie if they haven't already.
