days-of-heaven-3I’m in the final fourth of my research for Top Ten By Year: 1978 (I’ve got about 13 viewings left). With 1992 and 1958 I conducted a poll with all you fellow film lovers, asking what your choices would be. It has been such a success so far, and it’s become the inaugural kick-off for festivities in the Top Ten By Year Project. Next month, be on the lookout for a series of posts that cover 1978; an amazing disco-heavy Movie Music Mix, Favorite Posters of 1978, a What I’ll Remember post, Ten Honorable Mentions, the Top Ten, and to start it all off; the Poll Results.

Order doesn’t factor in for results, but you are more than welcome submit them that way. If you are struggling to come up with ten passionate picks, a single digit submission is equally acceptable. I don’t want 10 for the sake of 10.

Leave your lists in the comments section. Voting is open for the next seven days.
