Denis previously placed 4th in 2000 for Beau travail, 13th in 2002 for Trouble Every Day, and 11th in 2003 for Friday Night.

All four actors are new.

Is it poignant and pathetic that I went to bed last night wondering about Hunger, Sy Abelman, and the Skandies? Best Christmas morning ever!

You know, Nictate, operating under assumed names will only make matters worse.

Where is Mike Leigh, Director of Career Girls. Where.

Joshua said...

I would say Mike Leigh, Director of Career Girls, can be found somewhere below the top 20 in 1997.

Seriously, though, I don't get Michael's comment; Leigh didn't release a movie in 2009, so I assume this is some sort of cryptic reference, and maybe even a joke.

Nictate said...

Haha. Good one, Michael.

I'm glad to see I'm not alone in indulging in some Skandies gushing. Thanks for having my back, Interloper.

This *is* an amazing line-up at #6. Christmas morning, indeed.

Seen this movie last night and I was dreaming whole night about this movie. I enjoyed it very much and will suggest to everyone to watch this movie at least one time.
