Thanks for posting the info and URLs.
(I'm glad you didn't post the whole list and loads of other stuff).

I think we should be wary of allowing this list to be swamped by 'best
100' business though. Anyone whom subscribes to H-Film (I know there's
at least a couple here) will know that over the past month or so that
that list has been swamped ('fucked up' is the correct technical term, I
believe) by traffic obsessed by the AFA's 'top 100 [North] American

People there have posted the AFA 100, posted it again in quotes, and
then posted their own '100', and duplicated the top 100 of others in
quotes---all that and the discussion traffic on top makes for a pretty
heavy digest.

But to the point:
