Okay my TOP 15 for now -- still want to see The Farewell and Uncut Gems (one of those will break into the top 10, i suspect)

Did you count Enter the Void as a 10s films or just enjoyed Climax more? (:

This is a 2019 list.
But, Both?

Enter The Void is an experience/experiment I don't rewatch unless I'm introducing somebody to it -- CLIMAX I rewatch quite a bit, to learn from the camera + direction as well as to note how it's all paced. Personally, I appreciate its ensemble, mob-mentality theme, and needle-drop momentum much more than ETV'z  interp of the Tibetan Book of the Dead.

iíve never watched ETV on a tv screen but i saw it in a theater 9x (6 initial release, 3 directorís) which is 6x more than my second place for theatrical viewing numbers

i passed on Climax bc my life isnít similar, but may i one day appreciate the movie. ETV is all city vibes and personal experience, it sang to me

We should put our final lists in the other thread. I moved the last 3 posts there:
