It was a tie between Walking Dead and Libeled Lady, so I changed my vote from the former to the latter, giving us our winner: Libeled Lady

Feels like there's some resentment re: Film Club voting/participation disparity here.

I was probably acting like a fifteen-year-old reading too much into insignificant details while parsing a classmate's texts, but it seems like the vote threads usually have a title like "It's a 1930's vote!" rather than "Vote for a film.", and that combined with "Here are five random films from the collection for you to vote for" seemed when I first read it like a thinly veiled version of "Once again, here's a series of buttons for most of you to push on the basis of name recognition alone and then ignore without making a contribution"... but that's probably just me throwing out some ill-considered snark while reading the forum in a meeting I should have been paying attention to, as is my usual modus operandi.

I was just in a rush. There’s no veiled meaning.

Vote now. Vote Bergman.

The Bergman box is incredible. Let's show some appreciation by discussing one of its films. Above are five randomly generated titles.

I voted All These Women because I am a supervillain, but none of these are particularly good choices anyways

Perversely, I did the same, because I’m morbidly curious about it, and this would be a good justification for foregoing the box set’s order.

I'm not voting because I don't have the film in hand, but I maintain as an aesthetic and humourous whattchamajigger it's one of Bergman's greatest film.
