Only two rewatches left, and two I'm really looking forward to. I'll download Cinema Paradiso to watch it on the airplane in a few days, while flying to Switzerland!

Gaslight (G. Cukor, 1944)

A noir that totally feels like a noir but that has a very different structure from the quintessencial noir.

Re: The 19th Hall of Fame

I agree. I've never understood the people who skip over watching some of the noms. I always like them to be as fresh in my mind as possible so they all get a fair shot.
