Although I personally appreciate Breaking the Waves more than Dancer in the Dark (its religious voracity, the isolation of the location, and painting interludes strike me more) gonna say out of these noms I'll totes  campaign for Dancer in the Dark -- this iz one of the first LVT'z my dad showed me over a decade ago, that it means something to him means something to me.

I've only seen it twice -- and remember more from DitD beat-for-beat than I do from some flicks I've seen more than one hand can count. It's imprinted onto me as if part of her working machine.
Some films achieve their power not only from whats on screen but the atmosphere that it imbues around it.

Mulholland Drive
Southland Tales
Twin Peaks: Fire With Me

Richard Kelly cites going to see FWWM with a dozed off date as the moment that sparked his entire cinematic mind. Obviously then emulates this date within a Donnie Darko scene.

Three totalizing pictures of a larger, violent, societal whole. Swirling in the surreal and tinged w/ unique humor. Over, say Chinatown, I'm gonna vote for movies that coulda only come at one time from a crew's unifying aesthetic off the beaten path. Like Chinatown definitely iz that good, but I've gotta trim somehow! And cuz obvi I'm hurt y'all dont think Tromeo & Juliet belonged on here ;) Of course my personal tuff list of twenty includes The Terrorizers and The Thing.

you guys arenít alone with your Dancer in the Dark fondness and itís not as if i canít imagine why. itís not even in my top three LvT but thatís not a real life problem

Do the Right Thing is the one on the list that stands out to me. and The Godfather. itís not my type of list but i do look forward to seeing how it all turns out

We're a little more than halfway home with about half of the participants from the first round having submitted their votes.  Still plenty of time to watch, campaign, and submit your ballots before Thursday night's deadline!

Got a little less than 24 hours to go and there are still a few people who haven't submitted their ballots.  Let's go!

you know I'm just bumping this for ono. even if you didn't do the first round the list is there on the first page and you could rank it I'm sure ono wouldn't mind

Yes, thank you.  You don't have to have nominated anything to vote now.  There are still 3 people who nominated who haven't submitted final ballots, too.

itís not 2021 til the list arrives. tbh even if it was just two people that would be interesting too. i think itís a fun thing ono. sleepless and jb might have to cook up a different kind of annual thing this year. Literally Anything Good About 2020

iíll get my reactions out of the way: okay iím trying to be nice here so i wonít focus on bunch of bullshit. two or three selections make me smile and one reminds me of my old friend greg because he liked that movie. that and that is interesting and oh and oh about this and this. yeah yeah yeah about whatever and of course about that coming. props to you all the participants are my favorites

It's so weird to see Southland Tales on it and I love it lol

Overall it's a decent list. Would love to see all the data once it's over!  Like a list of all the films that got nominated, etc

I am currently in the process of tabulating things.  What's hard is, there are some films that got a lot of mentions but were ranked very low (so it's almost as if they were put on there as an afterthought), and there were some films that got few mentions, but were ranked high.  So I'm trying to strike a balance between those two cases, and make the weights that everyone gave their lists have merit too.  Simply doing a straight tally of the votes leads to some weird results that may not be as accurate a representation as we'd like.

Yeah. I think weighting it based on ranking makes a lot of sense. (That was my assumption anyway.)

Seeing the results of the various tabulation models could be an interesting "Extras" on Disc 2.  You should share them, at some point.
