Nick's Top 100 Films (100 movies items)

""Walkabout is cinema as poetry. Images rhyme with one another in a truly hypnotic fashion. Scenes are as vivid and intense as they are unreal and lyrical. There’s a phantasmagorical array of images, but also a rigorous, genius sense of structure." - Edgar Wright"

50 Great Movies That Were Not Nominated For Any Os (50 movies items)

"As we said much earlier, Nicolas Roeg has never been Oscar nominated, and though that’s sometimes understandable (“Performance,” for instance, isn’t really an AMPAS movie), in other cases it’s more baffling.
