I never noticed this list didn't have any silents. That's really strange.

Restricting to NYtimes reviews is no more restrictive than any critic's list which naturally restricts to what they as individuals have seen. The NYtimes reviews an awful lot of non mainstream movies.

I don't think I've ever seen anyone refer to Rashomon as "In the woods," but then again I've never seen anyone refer to it as crappy either. Those two Russian films are decently enjoyable too.

It was on the old Doubling The Canon list.

I've got to agree with the two precious comments, the blatant cuts take something away from it and there's no real payoff for the length. I'll also add that never getting to see the big picture diminishes the scope. Even with all those complaints it was still really cool to watch once.

I have to admit, as annoying as those accounts are, I laughed at rich asshole. At least he had the dedication to check off all the films.

That's too bad that it's score dropped so much. It's certainly not the best short ever but it's pretty good, certainly much better than most of the films that show up randomly on the short list and then disappear.

The DVD for Highway 61 a film starring the director of this short has some selected shorts on it, but I can't find information on what they are. I wonder if this might be one of them.

That one is particularly hilarious because the French title is in english and the supposed USA title is in French.

sortile9io : it's probably because they haven't changed their script since IMDB changed their title preferences.

I've tried to add Elasticity and White Heart, so you don't need to do those, but if you can add "So That You Can Live" to Imdb that'd be great.

If you feel up to adding other films there's 15 missing from the Rosenbaum list:

You guys are missing five films from The Ain't nobody's blues list, 3 of them aren't on Imdb but the other two are, just not linked from the TSPDT site. They're:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1696174/
and
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0041870/

Great job by the way.

Can someone say why this lists most, but not all of the films in the By Brakhage set? DOG STAR MAN, CAT’S CRADLE, I . . . DREAMING, and COMMINGLED CONTAINERS aren't here. Actually, reading the posts before me it would seem those are the missing numbers.

I got it to work by customizing the embeddable code to include the subtitles. This works for me, although the subtitles come out pretty small:

Quicky, If you don't want to vote on the films in Imdb just put all the links in the form http://www.imdb.com/rg/action-box-title/add-to-my-movies/mymovies/list?pending&add=######
where ###### is the imdb id without the tt then open up all the links and they'll all be added to the pending list, which you can import here.

They do have a minimum vote threshold, it's just not as high.

Do you have a primary source for that? I can't find any info about a 6th edition other than a couple of blog posts.

Maybe the Kinema Jumpo list should be called top 200 instead of top 100.
