I couldn't find the review I was looking for, by MIA member ferris, but I'll give my thoughts.

In the Spoiler Thread?

Sorry.  I always meant to write a longer review of that film, but I'd have to re-watch it first.  Which I'm happy to do, but not right now.

I'm also sad there are so few new lists for 2013. We should remedy that.

Fixed.

A little background music... and GO!

I didn't know this existed. It's fantastic.

Apologies for a revision so early, but I was so intrigued with my initial Personal Charm Top 100, I decided to take the time to do it up right. With months of careful research behind me and a re-watch Marathon in my future, consider this my Official Top 100.

Of the few I've seen, Scarlet Street has become the strangest inclusion.

Somehow made it through PLAYTIME (1967), but I'm not sure if I feel like it really is a top film of all time, or something really awful? I wanted to write a review, but I feel a bit numb.

Yeah. Maybe next time I watch it, I'll write something just for you. I'm a big fan of the three leads and it was on the 2nd viewing that I saw how much is played for comedy.

56. It Happened One Night
57. Manchester By The Sea
58. Mr. Smith Goes To Washington
59. Sunset Boulevard

64. Hannah And Her Sisters
