  1. Like Pete I’m eagerly awaiting your selections. From the taster you’ve given us here this project looks like a real labour of love.

  2. I’m sure your two lists will be really great.

    I just learned that Henry Silva passed away on the 22nd at the age of 95. This is very sad. I was very sad about this. Henry was a legend. He was fantastic in every way. He was a great actor, a badass, cool, charismatic and had amazing screen presence. He’s on my list of favourite actors. I wanted to pay tribute to him on here.

    He was in many movies over the decades. In the sixties he was in the Rat Pack movie Ocean’s Eleven and then worked with Frank Sinatra again in The Manchurian Candidate.

    Of course I loved his work in Polizotteschis the most. You know how great he was in Almost Human, Il Boss and Tough Cop and how great those films are. His other poliziotteschis are The Italian Connection (1972 directed by Fernando DiLeo), Kidnap (1974), Manhunt In The City (directed by Umberto Lenzi), Crimebusters / Poliziotti Violenti (1976 – which is now on youtube. I’ll have to watch it) and Weapons of Death (1977).

    Returning to Hollywood he became an action movie villain in numerous films. The best being Code of Silence starring Chuck Norris. That’s an excellent film with great action and Henry is great as the villain. Henry also featured in Alex Cox’s Moviedrome in the excellent Alligator. He also played one of Al Pacino’s gang in Dick Tracy and had a great role as an elderly mob boss in Jim Jarmusch’s Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai.

    His interview in the Eurocrime documentary was also absolutely great. He was a great storyteller.

    So farewell to Henry then. A great actor and a legend. It’s sad he’s gone now but it’s great he lived so long. It’s amazing that he lived to be 95. He can have a good rest now. He earned it. Rest In Peace Henry Silva.

    So many great actors passed away this year. Some were very old but some weren’t too old at all. It’s sad. It was also sad to see James Caan pass away this year too. He was another great actor and a movie legend. He was brilliant as Sonny Corleone. An iconic character and he will be part of movie history for that performance. He was also brilliant in Mann’s Thief which is a fantastic film. One of my top 10 favourite films infact. James Caan gave a brilliant performance in it and it was his best performance in a movie where he had the lead. He thought so too.
    He was a great actor too. Rest In Peace James Caan.

  3. You are absolutely correct on that Paul S 🙂 My next labor of love will be at the beginning of 2023 with an extended version of my favorite directors of all-time and how I rank what I consider to be their great films 🙂

  4. Why thank you for the kind words Steve and it is so great to see you on here again 🙂 I am not sure If the Sight & Sound poll will be released next month or in November 🙂 I overheard someone saying November, but I did not know If they meant issue wise (an issue released in October would say November) or in November as their December issue? I have to wait and see 🙂 I actually will be putting out three lists in that entry though – one dedicated to my 10 favorite films of all-time, my 10 favorite American/English-Language films (British entries consist of the latter) and my 10 favorite foreign films of all-time 🙂

    I too just found out that Henry Silva passed away 😦 He was just days away from his 96th birthday as well – he was 95. I also agree with all of your thoughts on Henry Silva as an actor 🙂 For me, he has to at least rank within the top 5 or 10 of greatest cult actors of all-time 🙂

    I knew about Ocean’s Eleven and yes, who could forget his appearance in The Manchurian Candidate? 🙂 I too love Code of Silence and speaking of which, it was directed by Andrew Davis, who also directed Above the Law, which also featured Silva as the main villain 🙂 Both films were shot in my home state of Illinois 🙂 I too knew that Silva was in Alligator and as Influence in Warren Beatty’s Dick Tracy 🙂 I also agree with you on the poliziotesschis 🙂

    Speaking of Dick Tracy, not only are James Caan and Henry Silva dead, but so is Paul Sorvino, who not only played Lips Manlis in that film, but also in Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas that same year as mafia kingpin Paul Cicero. Add to that Tony Sirico, who played Paulie Walnuts on The Sopranos. R.I.P. Ray Liotta, James Caan, Paul Sorvino, Tony Sirico and Henry Silva 😦

    I am aware that Thief in on your top 10 favorite films list 🙂 Speaking of which, how about that Tangerine Dream score? 🙂
