The hugely-successful 1970’s polling, which has run for nearly two months, will end on Wednesday, August 5th at 11:00 P.M. EST. Voting Tabulator Extraordinaire Angelo A. D’Arminio Jr. has been monitoring the returns, and will no doubt, have a full tabulation ready for the following weekend after the cut-off date. While Allan Fish’s countdown ended today with his annointment of Jacques Rivette’s Duelle as the #1 film of the decade, six more days are being provided for those who need time to fit in some viewings and finalize placements.
The 70’s polling has attracted the highest number of completed ballots than any previous decade poll, and the results can be seen on two threads which are accessible on the ‘Best Films of the 70’s’ tab over the site header. The 1980’s poll is scheduled to commence on Monday, August 10th, with th eprojected posting of Allan’s 51 to 100 “nearlies.”
