I did not know, in this case my choice would be "The Tree Of Life"(2011) has ever been in the top 250? I do not think so, the imdb scores have treated her very badly

Le Samourai

Ghost Dog: The way of the samurai

These 4 movies has been in Top 250. So maybe that makes it a little bit easier to choose. :)

These were all in the Top 250 once. Which one do you like to choose? Or do you want me to pick one? I watched Tootsie about a year ago because you mentioned it as a good movie. I liked it very much. Maybe a good one for this list...

Hoekkie,

For your consideration:
Sister Kenny (1946)
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0038948/
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0038948/plotsummary
An Australian nurse discovers an effective new treatment for infantile paralysis, but experiences great difficulty in convincing doctors of the validity of her claims.

Fictionalized account of the famed Australian Elizabeth Kenny whose revolutionary treatment for polio was hailed by many as the next best treatment to a cure itself. As presented in the film, Kenny came across her treatment of hot compresses and physiotherapy quite by accident. She almost immediately runs into the prejudice of the medical profession with the sole exception of a family medicine practitioner, Dr. McDonnell. She serves as a nurse in Europe in World War I and on her return to Australia has every intention of giving up nursing and marrying her longtime beau, Kevin Connors. She is drawn back into her work by the plight of the children she sees and sacrifices her personal life for the sake of her patients. After many years she eventually travels to the United States where she faces the same uphill battle against the medical profession. After several years, she eventually receives a more positive reception by some in the profession.

I've confirmed this film never made the IMDb Top 250.

Hoekkie,

Thank you for adding the film. Although the film borders on being a hagiography the film has special meaning for me.

The Florida Project, of course. : )

(I confirmed that it's never been in the Top 250.)

I think that this is a really cool idea for a poll.

Hi Hoekkie,

May I suggest just two small edits to the first paragraph of the intro? ('below in bold)

IMDb poll board member dan_dassow created the poll IMDb Poll Board Favorite Films. From the 25 movies mentioned in this poll only 1 movie hasn’t been ranked in the IMDb Top 250.


That's really interesting, by the way, and this is such a good idea for a poll.

Yes and you were just in time with your pick. I’m number one with Machinist but that’s maybe because it’s the first one on the list.
