    Only complaints are that The Immigrant and A Touch of Sin didn't rank higher. I did what I could.

    I'm really surprised that it was this high, actually? I don't think I've ever met a single person in this site who likes it.

    Overall, I think this was a much stronger list than the last two, though I do wish American Hustle and The Immigrant had performed better...

    01. The Immigrant (James Gray)
    02. Bastards (Claire Denis)
    03. American Hustle (David O. Russell)
    04. The Tale of the Princess Kaguya (Isao Takahata)
    05. Inside Llewyn Davis (Joel & Ethan Coen)
    06. Stranger by the Lake (Alain Guiraudie)
    07. Her (Spike Jonze)
    08. The Strange Little Cat (Ramon Zurcher)
    09. Side Effects (Steven Soderbergh)
    10. Enemy (Denis Villeneuve)

    Pretty amazed OLLA made Top 10. And I did not know Her and Kaguya are so beloved here.

    Enough Said had some support, 23 points for 36th place. Spectacular had 17 points, in 46th.

    A lovely number one!

    The graphics are honestly so amazing. That Gravity one is just spectacular.

    Blue was my number one as well.

    I had We are the Best! at number 4. Would have loved to see it higher but at least it made the list and hopefully it'll make more people see it.

    I just noticed this made more lists and had more #1s than the top 2! I guess Gravity and Her were stronger at getting the #2 and #3 placements?

    I'm also still in shock at Kaguya getting #4. That's a film I was desperate to not see even on our collective Top 10s of 2014 which is a weaker year. I'm so glad people have caught up.

    Next, Wind Rises, which is every bit as good.

    Best overall results yet by far! I was more and more shocked as American Hustle, 12 Years a Slave, and especially Wolf of Wall Street popped up outside of the top 10. Have we reached the amount of time distance where things with tons of hype look less appealing in retrospect and the true classics endure?

    Blue is the Warmest Color and The Tale of Princess Kaguya in the top 4 (the latter a bigger surprise) and Her is another worthy winner.

    I'm a tad upset I didn't learn of this earlier, but happy Her prevailed!

    As more people realise this is going on, it's better to start looking further ahead. During the week of each year we may or may not see a couple more movies before voting, but maybe we can start saving the rest of the decade:

    FYC 2011:

    You can't really vote in 2011 if you haven't seen:


    MARGARET



    ONCE UPON A TIME IN ANATOLIA



    THE DEEP BLUE SEA



    THE DAY HE ARRIVES




    OSLO, AUGUST 31st



    GOODBYE, FIRST LOVE



    And you can't really vote in 2010 if you haven't seen:

    FYC 2010:


    OF GODS AND MEN



    MYSTERIES OF LISBON



    UNCLE BOONMEE



    NOSTALGIA FOR THE LIGHT


    We can still save the decade, start watching (and loving) these for 2011 and 2010!!!

    2011 is an embarrassment of riches for non-American cinema. And Margaret and Hugo are absolutely wonderful, but outside of my FYCs, there's also


    LAS ACACIAS


    LE HAVRE


    WRINKLES


    THE TURIN HORSE

    FAUST



    I really hope in 2011 we have a predominantly non-American canon. There's not much in US film beyond Margaret and Hugo (ok, and Tree of Life) (and Deep Blue Sea is British, so it's ok! ).

    It's a more mysterious film than its indie, slightly feel-good appearance makes it seem.

    It's the very last 2011 film I have a particular interest to see.

    Will get back to you once I see it!
