I wanted to love THE TENANT soooo much!! Polanski is not just one of my favorite filmmakers, but an absolute MASTER OF HORROR (all-time Top 3 in the genre) and the film has several great chilling moments of genuine dread in the first half, but the anti-climactic and just plain GOOFY last act killed it for me. Hate to say it, but I think it's the most overrated Polanski film I've seen.
AMERICAN GRAFFITI, on the other hand, is a luminous, nostalgic & transporting MASTERPIECE that definitely made my ballot. It's also in my all-time Top 5 coming-of-age films. I love the original STAR WARS trilogy, but I'll take this gem over ALL of them any day of the week.
