Film Alert 101 has a sixth birthday - Popular posts over the last year


Youssef Chahine


Over 700,000 page views and another birthday. The year saw almost a triple dead heat but finally controversy beat out authority and cinephilia to record a narrow victory.

The two most popular posts over 2019/20 were. (Click to read).

David Stratton giving his thoughts on MIFF's decision

Followed by

Peter Hourigan alerting us to Netflix screening a large chunk of Youssef Chahine's master cinema

and followed by 

Karl Quinn's response to Tom and David

But getting back to more regular pursuits, other popular posts, not in any order especially because I left out the immensely popular items abusing Australia Post and allowing the film censors and the punishers and straighteners to make themselves look ridiculous, were:
