Thank you very much for everyone who participated in it. I’m glad GANG OF FOUR got one of the most votes, because I like Jacques Rivette. I also just read an article on Rivette, which is written by Jonathan Romney in Film Comment sep-oct 2007. I think it’s a great article.

-----------------------------------------

As for my seventh poll, it is inspired by CRY IN SILENCE (2006, J. G. Biggs, A+), which is my most favorite film of 2007. This film is mostly in black-and-white. I just noticed that many films I love are in black-and-white, though they were made not long ago. So my seventh poll is about my favorite recent black-and-white films.

THESE FILMS HAVE SOME OR ALL PARTS IN BLACK-AND-WHITE. WHICH FILM DO YOU LIKE?

There are also some recent (partly) black-and-white films that I like very much, but I left them out of my poll so that the poll won’t be too long. These films include

23. KAFKA (1991, Steven Soderbergh)

เอ ไม่มี the man from london เหรอ

ขอบใจมากจ้ะที่มาแสดงความคิดเห็น

ที่ไม่มี THE MAN FROM LONDON เพราะ Bela Tarr โด่งดังมากๆแล้วค่ะ และเขาก็ทำหนังขาวดำหลายเรื่องด้วย ก็เลยตัดสิทธิ์ของเขาด้วยการเอ่ยถึง SATANTANGO เพียงเรื่องเดียวพอ แทนที่จะต้องเอ่ยถึงชื่อหนังขาวดำของเขาทุกเรื่อง

ที่เลือกเอ่ยถึง SATANTANGO แทนที่จะเอ่ยถึง THE MAN FROM LONDON ก็เป็นเพราะว่าดิฉันชอบ SATANTANGO มากกว่าค่ะ

แต่หนังที่ดิฉันลืมนึกถึงไปอย่างไม่น่าให้อภัยตอนที่เขียนโพลล์นี้ ก็คือ BIRTH OF THE SEANEMA (2004, Sasithorn Ariyavicha) ค่ะ
