I'll admit to having lost track of the number of 2nds and 3rds I have, but assuming I still have some, I'll second Night Train to Munich
I’m in a holding pattern. Used all my noms and seconds. And unless I can use my thirds for films I’ve already nominated or seconded, I’m stalled.
Are Straw Dogs, Alien, and The Elephant Man British movies? Just because a movie has a British director doesn't make it British. Ditto just because a movie was filmed in England. Weren't these fully financed by American studios/sources? 2nd The Yellow Submarine 3rd The Horses Mouth Nominate Wonderland Ratcatcher Metroland The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires
I'd like to nominate Carry On Cruising Carry On Cleo Sexy Beast The Devil Rides Out I will second: The Mummy ('59) The Thief of Bagdad (1940) Curse of Frankenstein I will third: Watership Down Night of the Demon Straw Dogs * * British film? If you're going by financing, then Judge Dredd is a British film. (a lot of people are kicking themselves for not knowing that earlier, I bet)
Well, to me Straw Dogs is a Sam Peckinpah film not a British one. Bring Me The Head of Alfredo Garcia isn't a Mexican film. Cross of Iron isn't a German film. Straw Dogs was mostly bankrolled by ABC. I would just like to know what makes it British other than locale? Does that mean that Gangs of New York or Minnelli's Two Weeks In Another Town are Italian because they were filmed at Cinecitta? Are we going to call From Hell a British film because it takes place in London?
Straw Dogs was filmed and set in Britain with a 99% British Cast (okay, so Dustin Hoffman was the other 1%, big deal ). I wouldn't judge the "nationality" of a film by its financers alone, or its director, but by a proper weighting of the nationalities of its financers, director(s), writer(s), crew, cast and location. IMHO Straw Dogs qualifies as a British film. It's somewhat irrelevant anyway, because as good as it is, there's no way it's going to win this tournament, considering what it's up against.
OK, I’ll try some of my original suggestions. Nominate: Man of Aran Nanook of the North 2001 Eyes Wide Shut The later too as I never noticed a ruling on their inadmissibility.. Third: A Passage to India
I'm a bit confused Lew, since I've already thirded 2001, since someone else had seconded it.
:b: I’m the one that was confused George. I made a faulty assumption on the collating sequence, believing that numbers came first. So when I did not see 2001 at the top of the list, I thought that somehow it had been overlooked. Little did I suspect that Jim would cleverly make the collating sequence for numbers as though they were spelled out words (nothing wrong with this, just surprising), so finding it around ‘Trainspotting’ was unexpected. Actually I think that I’ve been confused on this whole tourney. Perhaps it is due to driving on the other side of the road.
Fair enough Phillip I'll 2nd Sexy Beast
