Heh I completely forgot about my poll - I blame the snaps...

Glad to see Ingmar Bergman getting some love - like I said earlier, it puzzled me to see him without any mentions.

Anyways, I forgot to vote too - so I am going for Lars Von Trier's best work outside of his tv series 'Riget', Medea. A movie based on the Danish writer Steen Steensen Blicker's famous short story 'Hosekræmmeren'. It's a cruel and dark movie, but there's a lot beauty there too. My dad participated in the making of it, and I remember him being away from home for months at a time - shooting in the more desolate parts of Jutland. I think he's still proud of that movie - as is Lars. Great great movie.

It's strange that no-one voted for 'Rope'. I consider this as my second Hitchcock's favourite movie after 'Vertigo'.

Btw, it's nice to see 'Les Rivières Pourpres' in the list. I loved this film as a kid and still believe it's a quite decent mystery/thriller feature.

I haven’t seen all of them, but Aguirre, der Zorn Gottes certainly deserves a vote. In my opinion, it’s Herzog’s best movie (which says a lot), and Klaus Kinski has never been better.

I just now voted for Aguirre too -- superb film.  I also haven't seen all of them.

Although Lars von Trier is one of my favourite directors, I still haven't seen that.  I think my favourite of his is The Element of Crime (Forbrydelsens element).

I've only seen City Of God and Pan's Labyrinth from this selection. I liked them both, but I'll give the nod to PL.

Only seen three of these, Pan's Labyrinth (which I didn't like), Imaginarium (it was decent), and City Of God(shocking and amazing).

I really want to see Aguirre, The Hunted, Seventh Seal, Pink Flamingos, Amelie, and Medea.

I really enjoyed City of God.
