Cruising through Midnight Eye's reader poll for 2009 has resulted in an interesting list. Happy to report that Madman has 8 films out of the Top 10!

    LOVE EXPOSURE - this would also be my favourite of 2009
    Still Walking
    Departures
    Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea
    Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance
    Yatterman
    Goemon
    Vampire Girl Versus Frankenstein Girl

Got me thinking... any that you think should be higher up or isn't on the list altogether?

I'm way behind on all of these with the exception of Love Exposure - which completely blew me away. Fantastic film! Third Window's 2-disc UK release is an NTSC-PAL standards conversion which is unfortunate but either these conversions are getting better or my eyesight's failing because the quality actually looked OK to me. At any rate, since LE doesn't appear to be available anywhere else on DVD except in Japan this'll certainly do for now.

Thanks - good to know. We have a progressive PAL version of Love Exposure coming out in July.

Re Love Exposure - just thought I'd ask if the English subtitles you're using offer translations for the terrific YuraYura Teikoku song that plays at various times through the movie. For those wondering, it's this:

Given that Koike's Zero Church members appear to be singing the lyrics acapella in one scene, it would appear they do have some meaning.
