hi there--
chris' advanced math skills aside -- i don't find the list weird at all.

the editor of the list co-programs Views. the editor of the list sent a "pre-selection" of titles to the 46 selectors which, included every film shown at views in the 2000's and a sprinkling of others from Wavelengths that didn't show at Views. these were the 'recommended' titles so to speak, although all selectors were invited to add their own, of course.

its been said before: Views skews way toward distinguished gentlemen from the US.
the list of selectors is mostly in this camp, with a sprinkling of women and folks outside the US.

so its not weird at all to me that the list lauds Mr. Klahr, (and not just because he voted!) and crew, because IMHO it was a pre-determined self-congratulatory exercise.

as all such lists of this ilk are...
