    – Very happy about Chantal Akerman and Barbara Loden on the list!

    – I think a lot a people were surprised there was no Malick on the list. I’m guessing he’ll make a comeback on the next one. The New World seems to have the most passionate fans, me being one of them.

    – I was trying to think of what would be some recent movies that could have a showing on the next list. My mind keeps coming back to Memoria. Interesting that you mentioned Lawrence of Arabia falling off the list, it being an essential film to see in a movie theater setting. To me, Memoria was the most essential movie theater movie in recent memory since maybe Climax.
