Great that Halloween and Black Christmas are in the same section, also that they both did quite well. I'd have personally put Halloween a lot higher, but not a bad result for it. I believe it's only the third film so far that I voted for.

Yet another FYI that I almost forgot: The ONLY reason I didn't put Tess in my Top 25 is I thought we had put it in our 1980's list and I considered it an 80's release. I almost asked just in case, but then didn't bother. But I would have put it around #21 or #22, so it's ranking wouldn't have changed too much with my ballot. Maybe would have been 1 or 2 numbers higher, though.
At any event: It's one of the most visually breathtaking & unforgettable films ever made, as well as one of the most emotionally heartbreaking & enraging in terms of its tragic story. Goddess Nastassja Kinski also gives one of the greatest performances ever to be ROBBED by the Oscars. Amazing film and Top 5 Polanski for me.

I'll always credit Salo for teaching me what "mangiare" means in Italian
another good group of films. We have pretty good taste! A shame about Love and Anarchy but it's kinda underseen so I get it. Wertmüller needs more traffic in cinephile spaces generally. She made some fuckin amazing and provocative films in the 70s and they're just waiting to be discovered (on Kanopy )

Also, I always try when these lists come out to focus more on how happy I am about the great ones that make it than being bummed about the overrated ones that also get in, but if I can just have a brief moment to vent: Black Christmas is better than Day for Night, Animal House, Tess, Last Tango in Paris, Love and Death, Halloween, Mean Streets, and Five Easy Pieces?!?!?! SUUUUURE, JAN.
One of the most overrated horror films I've ever seen.
