    Ingmar Bergman’s ravishingly beautiful turn-of-the-century epic Fanny and Alexander bested Martin Scorsese’s boxing classic Raging Bull in the nearly three-month old voting at Wonders in the Dark for 80’s cinema.  The results of the 30 top finishers were announced today by Voting tabulator Angelo A. D’Arminio Jr., who provided the exact numbers here in the weighted ballot method.  42 ballots were submitted, with the Bergman film gaining four #1 placements, and three #2 designations.  The Top 30 are listed below…
