Chan Is Missing - 1981

A lot of end of the year stuff since the last update: the nominees for the 2018 Endy Awards, the Best Books I Read in 2018, my favorite Film Discoveries of the Year, and the Seattle Film Critics Society Awards. I contributed to Frame.land’s Favorite Cinematic Moments of 2018 and Underseen and Unloved Films of 2018 (on Ash is Purest White and Liz and the Blue Bird, respectively), InReview’s Top 20 Films of 2018 (on Blackkklansman) and the Mubi Notebook’s annual Fantasy Double Features collection.

Also at the Notebook I had a column on the Best Chinese Films of the year and a retrospective on the work of the late Ringo Lam. Only one review over at Seattle Screen Scene, on Mojin: The Worm Valley, where we also have a round-up of our Favorite Things of 2018.

If you like what I do here or at Seattle Screen SceneThe Chinese Cinema, or anywhere else, please consider donating at my kofi page. Every little bit helps.

These are the nominees, listed in alphabetical order. The winners will be announced on Oscar night. And the Endy goes to. . .

Ash-Is-Purest-White-film-review-1140x650

Since the last rankings update, I’ve been to the Vancouver Film Festival, where I saw a whole lot of movies and wrote about a few of them: Mirai, Asako I & II, Diamantino, Spice It Up; and talked about a few more on The Frances Farmer Show. Also at Seattle Screen Scene I’ve written about Bisbee ’17, Golden Job, The Great Battle, In the Intense Now, Cieloand Big Brother. Here at The End I posted my annual Top 100 Films of All-Time list.

Over at The Chinese Cinema, I wrote about Hong Sangsoo’s short film List, and A City of Sadness and the Hou Hsiao-hsien series that played in Austin. At Mubi I wrote about the Shaw Brothers Horror series playing at the Metrograph. At InReview Online I’m contributing to their retrospective on the career of Hong Sangsoo, with my look at On the Occasion of Remembering the Turning Gate up already and a couple more (on Our Sunhi and Claire’s Camera) going up in the next few days.

A Top 100 Films of All-Time

It is time once again for a Top 100 Films of All-Time list. As I’ve done for the last few years, the first ten spots on the list comprise a hypothetical Sight & Sound-style ballot. We had an on-going project related to this on The George Sanders Show, that will now be based at Seattle Screen Scene. This top ten is presented here in chronological order. The remaining 90 films were randomly selected from a consideration set of 446 films, which excluded films that made my Top Tens in 20122013201420152016 and 2017.
