OK here goes. In this thread feel free to suggest and discuss the best films released between 1980 and 1989. The limit 100 films. anything with (TV) after it on IMDB is a no-go. Only TV films that recut for theatrical distribution (presumably in a different country) are good here. If it got a theatrical release in the 80's in the country(-ies) of origin then there's no debate, it is in. Anything else may need you personally to explain the situation if you feel it's debateable.

1. 1000
2. 750
3. 500
4. 400
5. 350
6. 320
7. 300
8. 280
9. 260
10. 250
11. 245
12. 240
13. 235
14. 230
15. 225
16. 220
17. 215
18. 210
19. 205
20. 200

25. 175
30. 150
31. 148
32. 146
33. 144
34. 142
35. 140

40. 130
45. 120
50. 110
55. 100
60. 90
65. 80
70. 70
75. 60
80. 50
85. 40
90. 30

95. 20
96. 18
97. 16
98. 14
99. 12
100. 10


Yet again I hope this will put an emphasis on ordering the higher end of the list and won't penalise those who submit smaller lists or give a bias to either the films we've all seen or high ranking films on a few lists. I think this has worked well so far.

The deadline for votes is 6th November and the list will be counted down during that month, leaving December and January free for the EOY's on both sides of the board before we start on the 90's

Best places to start...

Those lists posted in the 70's result thread will be carried over and I will repost them once the thread has got going.
Nice bowl of Crunchy Nut you got here, pretty expensive as I recall.

question:

Alternate Versions for
The Executioner's Song (1982) (TV)
A 97-minutes version was released theatrically in Europe, featuring additional footage with some nudity not shown in original television version.

is this good enough?
Sail Away: The Songs of Randy Newman -7.5/10
Dusty Springfield - Dusty in Memphis 8.5/10
Buddy & Julie Miller - Written in Chalk wow, first listen, but great great record! 9.3/10
Justin Townes Earle - Midnight at the Moviessurprisingly great, never picked up his past releases, but this one's knocking my socks off right away, 8.7/10
M. Ward - Hold Time 8.0/10
Neko Case -Middle Cyclone her best I've heard is my initial impression, but too soon to rate, haven't had a really good listen yet 7.8/10

2. Shoah (dir. Claude Lanzmann)


great list, bird. but i cannot for the life of me sit through Shoah. i think i watched a couple hours and that was all i could take.

Cinema Paradiso made me cry, i loved it. not sure how it would hold up today. it always bothers me when a movie covers a huge span of time and uses two different actors to play the same role at different ages (Once Upon A Time in America, Cinema Paradiso, Gattaca, etc...)

Man, EVERYONE I know says that. Usually 'cause it's too overwhelming for them. I'm not Jewish, but half my neighborhood was (thus misleading me into thinking half the world was probably Jewish...I was 6, whaddya expect?) So even in grade school I was exposed to famous books on the Holocaust, my brother introduced me to Maus, and several classmates had their grandparents come in to talk about their experience in the camps. By the time I saw Schindler's List, and later Shoah, I already had heavy exposure, so I think that kind of helped me when I finally spent a week, sometime in 2000, watching Shoah. Not in the sense it numbed me, but cushioned the shock of hearing what happened.

Then again, I've only asked Jewish individuals whether or not they've seen it, and obviously their familiarity with the Holocaust didn't make it any more bearable.

If anyone wants to watch it, I think the end is extraordinary once it sinks in, at least philosophically. It really helps to see the entire documentary because it really conditions you for that last bit. It encapsulates everything that's brilliant about this film's style, how taken out of context, many of the shots seem so ordinary and nondescript, nothing you'd expect to dominate a Holocaust film. Combined with the testimonial, it really fuses the traumas of the past with the present, and it makes everything so much more powerful. It isn't some distant past you'd normally see in grainy, black & white footage, you really understand that this is something that's left deep scars in the world around us.
