Considering I haven't even heard of The Conformist until now (a search on IMDb reveals it's a Bertolucci film; I liked Ultimo tango a parigi, so I should definitely check this out), the chances of that are probably slim.  Still, though, I can't wait to see everyone else's picks, too.  That should be just as interesting as the final list.

Threatening people with death in the absence of a Conformist vote makes me feel like a real man.
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.

It's not too late Trebh (this is the inevitable next name isn't it?),  Just PM it on this way and make sure it's in alphabetical order and don't number it and don't put "the" in front unless it's "La" or "Das" then use that, but try to use the most common name and think about it, actually think about it, don't put the last fifteen movies you saw and liked and fuck up our list or I might kill you.

No, I wouldn't think so. I'm anxious to see who I'm compatible with :-D
But seriously, it'll be interesting for me because I think these lists will spit out a lot of unexpected diversity.

Il Conformista is a beautiful, wonderful movie. I sorta dislike the coda at the end, but I can stomach it.

No, I can't possibly do this.  I don't like listing to begin with, and this is just too much for me to do (though I am interested to see the outcome)

I want everyone to know I'm gonna go on a wild killing rampage if The Conformist isn't on the top 50...


Haha, I bet it doesn't even make it. The film is recognizable to me, but I've never seen it.
