The general guideline:

Film festival releases don't count. Limited and wide releases do.

you can
1. nominate fewer than 5



Besides that, can I skip a category? For example I haven't seen any documentaries released in the US in 2003.

"Dogville" has yet to come on in the US and has only done the festival circuit, so I'd say no.

not only has the movies now out in the u.s. yet to be released here, the movies now out here has also yet to be released in the u.s. !

i have to steal and i have to steal fast

Can we create our own categories, like Best Nipples In A Feature Film, or are we just gonna give that one to Naomi Watts straight off the bat?
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

Yes, just keep 'em to yourself.

Yes, it should go without saying which kinds of self-created categories would obviously be considered a tad too personal/irrelevant for inclusion.

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."

Less than a church... yet more than a strip club or adult book store. That seems fair and comfortable enough for most to live with.

Haha, I'm out of the loop... what's that all about?





Seriously though, you didn't actually think I wanted that category, did you? I mean, it's pretty obvious that it was for yuks...

Actually, ever been in one of those places (the second two)? They're the most uptight places around...

Yes, and yes. And you have a point... up to a point. But you knew what I meant, mister: The content and tone; the feel and consideration of what's for general conversation and what's maybe best reserved for more anatomy-specific threads and boards.  :)
