Marie comes up with our next To the Polls. This time we take on One Word Titled, One Inch Subtitles, Films!
I’m with Bong Joon-Ho.
I can’t tell you how happy I was when Parasite won all those awards, particularly given how fed up I was with the plethora of Joker/OUATIH noms.
Parasite is one of my favourite films of this century, so I started to reminisce about films not in the English language from the last century. Of course, there are loads that I love. But what would I say is the best?
It’s probably impossible to choose. But thinking about Parasite – how about narrowing it down to just films with one word for a title? No ‘The‘ or ‘An‘, or even ‘L’‘. Which means that L’Eclisse, Le Mépris, L’Atalante … none of these qualifies by my rules.
So I’ve looked back across the whole gamut of languages, countries and decades, and have come up with 10 titles that I think represent the best one-word-titled films with 1-inch-subtitles of the 20th century.
Over to you!
Other (let us know!)
Enter as many times as you like, as often as you like. Again the Winner will be announced next Tuesday, February 25th!
