The 29th Hall of Fame


11 Foreign Language movies to go

Here we go again!

It's time for all you film fanatics to delve into your own brains and sort through the greatest of the great films you have in there and pick something spectacularific to go head to head with other nominations in this - MOFOs 29TH HALL OF FAME.

What's a Hall of Fame you ask? What are the rules? What conditions? What's going on here? It's all contained in the time-honored, mystical rules. Nobody knows who wrote them, or how long ago they were written. Okay, not true, I think @Citizen Rules did it :

Rules of Participation:

oh wow already?? yeah guess i'm in
A few hours after the 27th ended I saw people asking "Hey where is the 28th already?" so I though "dammit, I'm going to deliver this baby pronto" - but it's all the same, because there is so much time to ponder a choice and send a nomination. I won't be looking at my watch, then at all of MOFO saying, "Well?? The clock is running!"

movies can be okay...
I guess it's about that time of the year that I join one of these again. I'm in.
"A film has to be a dialogue, not a monologue — a dialogue to provoke in the viewer his own thoughts, his own feelings. And if a film is a dialogue, then it’s a good film; if it’s not a dialogue, it’s a bad film."
- Michael "Gloomy Old Fart" Haneke

It's a special perk for the person running a Hall of Fame to know what has been nominated long before everyone else does - and I have to say I'm pretty giddy with anticipation knowing the selection we have thus far. I'm looking forward to this more than any other Hall I've been a part of.

The 1st of July has a nice roundness to it, but I think by the 28th June I'll be bursting to do the reveal, so it should be then. My 28th morning should be the night of the 27th for most all of you I think.

Next time , be more specific.
PHOENIX74 and I was talking about mine. I gave him a sneak peek from YouTube

My nomination for this round is only 74 minutes long, so it should be a change of pace over my last nomination being 3hr 42mins. It's also among my favorites, so I'm curious how well it'll do here.
