Wow! Finally up, and a very nice selection. As expected your selection fits my standards. Most of the films you listed and I haven't seen are one's I missed one way or the other. Hopefully this will change.
Interesting to notice the four differing approaches to structuring our lists so far. I thought of listing films alphabetically at first, but as I don't know the english titles for all of them this would have turned out too unclear. If I listed them by year, some titles would maybe be easier to find... Don't know if my assuption was correct though, as I decided to list them alphabetically (by original title) each year. I also thought of numbering first, but as preferences change over time, this would have been too much work keeping it updated (and would also mean too many rewatches )
As for the ratings, my systems have changed so much since 2000 that I had to do a lot on memory. I first thought to simply include all films with an 80 rating or higher (which means A- or higher, or in words anything from "great" onwards), but then I found out that I had also rated some imo great and essential films somewhere in the 70s. (One even as "low" as 71!). So to hell with my initial ratings, as I decided to trust the developing feelings over time a bit more.
I was able to track down Distance on DVD in Berlin, but had no time to watch it. But maybe a friend will copy it for me.
It will be interesting to see these lists grow and evolve over time, and I hope more people will contribute. I was thinking that we could also go backwards and do similar stuff with earlier decades.
