  1. So much to love here, buddy!

    Requiem for Score, In the Mood for Love for Picture, your entire Cinematography ballot, Connelly, Del Toro, the Dunst nom, all the love for Amores Perros!

    I really need to see Chopper and High Fidelity!


    • Sorry bro! I love Chopper and it was extremely close in a number of categories, including Best Actor for Bana, but just missed out. ๐Ÿ˜›
      In the Mood For Love and Traffic would be my top recommendations, if you haven’t already seen them.

    • Hey! Love your line-up. I love Memento and the only reason it isn’t here is because I have it in 2001. I can’t however say the same for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon because I just am not a fan of Kung-Fu films in general. Battle Royale is brutal, but I just couldn’t find any place for it on my ballot. And I really need to see Shadow of a Vampire.


    • You absolutely must see In the Mood For Love!
      And I know about Drew, Dell. His blog has always been one of my favorites and it was the Fistis that actually inspired my awards.
