  1. 50s/60s/70s were banging decades. It's no surprise they fill the list. They will do so for decades to come because they will still be great films. I wouldn't even know where to begin making a top 100 films from the '70s.
  2. If you can ever watch Jeanne Dielman on the big screen, run don't walk. It really benefits from the sensory deprivation tank atmosphere of the cinema.
  3. If only the Germans had a word for how I feel about them going out over a ball not being called out.
  4. Laughing at the thought of all the people about to give Jeanne Dielman a go.
  5. Ah, that makes me feel a bit better, then, as I don't use audiobooks for first time reads.
  6. I'm very impressed by how many books you get through. I think I'll try and post in next year's thread to keep me honest and on track with my reading.
  7. I never said it was. The main character's in The Return a lot, actually.
  8. Part of the brilliance of The Return, for me:
  9. The Return is still the greatest piece of film or television I've ever seen. I still can't believe it got made. A month doesn't go by where I don't think about the ending.
  10. And Then There Were None and The Murder of Roger Ackroyd.
  11. Worrying result. The group stage entertainers never go on to win the whole thing.
  12. Um, pretty open to anything, really. I do enjoy generational tales, like One Hundred Years of Solitude.
  13. Can anyone recommend some books written outside of Britain or the US? None of the obvious canon stuff if possible. I've realised that most of my reading this year has been from white, native English speakers. Should probably diversify.
