    Killer group - so many of these are better than the other groups I have seen. Ugh. Galipoli and The Killing Fields going down. A sad day.

    C'mmon gang, if every a foreign film deserved some praise, it Wings of Desire - it's sheer brilliance.

    One of my favorites as well. Easily, I would have seconded it. Interesting movie did-bit. Kevin Costner was supposed to be in Lawrence Kasden's The Big Chill, but was edited out entirely except...
  4. Sticky: I agree, it's working just fine.

    Since in the first round we keep top six of eight films, I don't think there is any chance any serious contender gets eliminated right off the bat. Granted I am not as versed in all the movies as...

    I agree, but for me it's the film's first half that is most mesmerizing (the systematic breakdown that occurs during boot camp is chilling). What I do love about the second half is its immersion...

    Rick Berry

    I will share a story from a few years ago 2013. Many years ago I taught Rick's son in high school. I had the pleasure of speaking to Rick a few times - very interesting man. Years...

    What kills me is that with a quick go through I see about 21 films that are pretty much "schlock." I shouldn't be able to see 10% "schlock." I guess that one man's "schlock" is another mans art.

    It was on my list, but there was only so much time.

    I will second Working Girl. This comedy deserves the spot.

    Another Peter Weir gems. One of my last nominations, a small film with an even smaller academy award winning performance by Linda Hunt. She's unforgettable.

    The Year of Living Dangerously ...
  12. Sticky: Let me know what you think - it's amazing!

    I just picked this up on laserdisc about a month ago. Haven't had the chance to check it out just yet.[/QUOTE]

    Let me know what you think - it's amazing!

    There is still some great stuff out there!!! Dig deep.
  14. Sticky: Sad that there is so much schlock in the contest,...

    Sad that there is so much schlock in the contest, while some truly amazing films go unnoticed. I too have Silkwood, The Accused, and Salvador on my list. While there is still time I will shill for...

    I will second Children of a Lesser God - beautiful film.

    Here's a little known war film that depicts the horrors of war in the face of friendship. Gut wrenching. A very early Mel Gibson in this one.

    Director: Peter Weir
    Year: 1981

    I will second A Better Tomorrow - go John Woo!!!
  19. Sticky: I will second Fitzcarraldo - visionary...

    I will second Fitzcarraldo - visionary filmmaking.

    The documentary about the making of Fitzcarraldo, Burden of Dreams, is equally brilliant.

    How about another fine comedy then..."snap out of it!"

    Moonstruck
