Here's the deal: I've heard back from everyone for the second round except for one person who rarely posts here that hasn't logged into the forum since submitting a list on Sunday. This poster had 3 orphans but any changes they would make are unlikely to alter the final results materially. I'm not confident they'll log in any time soon so I wouldn't want to hold up results just for that. But if you would like to contribute a list, matrix, that would give this other guy a little more time to get back to me as well. Just tell me yay or nay if I should wait. I did suggest earlier that you would have until the end of today at least...

No, move forward, I don't want everyone to wait on me and with as many votes as have been cast the score impact of any submission I would make would be minimal anyway.

With two points separating the #1 and #2 spots, you could certainly change that. Also, Minkin's list shot a couple of films into the top 100. But unless you tell me otherwise in the next 10 minutes, I'll proceed to finalize the results.

Take your time, just get it to me today. I should probably be concentrating on work and stuff. We all should.

The beauty of springbreak is instead I should be watching Ingmar Bergman films.

Thanks to everyone for your participation in Round 3 of our forum's list project. I'll be releasing the results shortly in the next three posts. Below is a guide to what the figures listed after each film represent, each separated with a slash mark:

1. Total points (50 for each #1 placement, 49 for each #2, etc. For scoring purposes, all first-round orphans were removed and the films below them were moved up to fill in their place.)
2. Number of lists the film appeared on (out of 43 submitted). If the film appeared in anyone's top 10, the number of top 10 appearances is also denoted in parentheses.
3. Highest placement of the film on any one list. If more than one person ranked the film this high, this is also denoted in parentheses.

So for example, the 404/15(4)/3(x2) shown for To Be or Not to Be means that it scored 404 points and appeared on 15 lists (and four top 10s), with two people ranking it as high as #3.

For the list of orphans, only figure #3 is displayed (the highest rank, not the score given).

Feel free to continue discussion in this thread regarding the results of this project and to share your individual lists with defenses. I'll probably start Round 4 (beginning with the pre-1920s project) over the weekend.

Here is another way to look at the results (including also-rans). I've sorted by director and then by rank. For the directors with several films listed, you might think of this as a kind of auteur mini-list result.

The All-Time List Discussion Thread

I'll repost my list in a bit, but if apartment and vertigo were 1 and 2 until the very last minute, then my revisit of the apartment last year (which caused it to tumble out of my personal top ten for the first time since I've been making a top ten) really had an impact.

Top ten + orphans:

1. Seven Samurai
2. Stalker
3. Contempt
4. La Passion de Jeanne d'Arc
5. That Obscure Object of Desire
6. Apocalypse Now
7. Ivan the Terrible
8. Taxi Driver
9. Sunrise
10. Night of the Living Dead

30. Hana-bi: either I'm the only one who finds this horrifying and beautiful and moving, or people like the same elements better in other Kitano films, or both. For me, the best of his gangster films and, next to Kikujiro and Dolls, his best film.

38. A Cottage on Dartmoor: goddamn it, matrixschmatrix.

50. Hangover Square: I knew this was an orphan the moment it went on my list, but it's such a glorious bravura performance and one of the very best studio system horrors. I like it a lot more than movies that are admittedly more considerable and impressive achievements.

swo17 said I had four orphans, but for the life of me I can't figure out what the fourth is.

My top ten:
1 Black Rain
2 Notre Musique
3 Blonde Venus
4 Beau Travail
5 Deep End
6 The Flowers of St Francis
7 Strangers on a Train
8 Flowing-------------------------Somehow an orphan
9 Crimes and Misdemeanors
10 Mysteries of Lisbon

The highest ranking film I voted for was Sherlock Jr which I suppose is as good a most successful film as can be expected. I like our list even if I find the top getter more an amusing choice than anything. Does Sight and Sound have that much sway over the film community?

It was The Wild Bunch until the guy whose list had issues fixed them and I was able to count it.
