Made me smile with recognition Bill - both in that I make such lists and often struggle to fill them.

I've been a list freak as long as I can remember, Jem. Glad to know I'm not the only one.

Now... obviously, we want to know those 8. Please !

OK, Monika. In no particular order:

You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet
Holy Motors
The Master
Something in the Air
Like Someone in Love

Hey – that's only 7!

In fairness, of course, I haven't seen everything.

I think the year's most overrated film is "Amour." Not bad; overrated. I prefer films that liberate the audience to films that take us prisoner.

Interesting ! Thank you very much for your son de cloche - I'll put these 7 on my list of films... to see ! Here in Quebec, we are happy about Rebelle de Kim Nguyen which made it into the short list for the Oscars (films étrangers).

Monika, I'll look for the film you mention.

Good advice, Doug.
