Skuriels Ballot

As I write this post, the Skuriels countdown of the 20 greatest movies of all time is underway. This is a joint effort by two critics organizations, the Skandies and the Muriels, and you can get a better explanation of all that here. I’ve written up a couple of my favorites that made the final cut, and those should be appearing on the Skuriels site sometime today. Meanwhile, I thought I’d post my full ballot here:
