[I'm not gonna do clips this year, guys. Among other things, my iMac's hard drive is on the verge of failing—I'm taking it in to be replaced today—so at the moment everything I do is abysmally slow. And not that many people watched them anyway, judging from view counts on previous clips.]


Resnais landed at #18 in 2007 for Private Fears in Public Places and at #8 in 2010 for Wild Grass.

Of the actors, only Sir Ben has previously appeared, though it's been a decade. He placed 2nd in Supporting for Sexy Beast in 2001 and 10th in the lead category for House of Sand and Fog in 2003.

Resnais and Herbiet's screenplay for Wild Grass finished at #16 three years ago.
