    Mark, this year has already been covered here: http://www.filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=83081&forumID=7&archive=0


    I know, and I see that I contributed to that thread as well. But I wanted to continue this Best/Favorite series I started with the 1970 list: http://filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=99384&forumID=7&archive=0 and will conclude with the next one. Mastadge has been covering 1983-onwards: http://filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=98398&forumID=7&archive=0

    I'm having so much fun with these, and enjoying reading other people's lists and suggestions, that I'm thinking of continuing from 1969 on back.

    But thank you for linking to the other best of '81 thread. I should have thought of doing that myself. smile

    I'm enjoying them too - both for other people's lists and for the opportunity to review releases year by year and recall what I've seen and discover what I haven't. Thanks to you and Mastage for keeping them going!

    My 5 favourite films from 1981, not including the obvious out-of-competition status for
    Beatty's REDS and Spielberg's RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK are :

    LE CHOIX DES ARMES
    COUP DE TORCHON
    LA FEMME D'A CÔTE
    GARDE A VUE
    UNE ETRANGE AFFAIRE
