100. ChickenHawk



Director: Adi Sideman
Year: 1994

For those who've never heard of NAMBLA, it stands for North American Man Boy Love Association, paedophiles for short. The film attempts to get under the skin of the attraction from some adult men for young boys, it looks at the history of man and boy sexual relationships and interviews NAMBLA members and follows some around their day to day life. I've never been one for the "SHOOTEM!" mentality. People can't help who they're attracted to. But they can stop themselves from acting on that attraction, despite several claims that boys have wanted to have sex with these older men, they're nowhere near mature enough to give consent, and those who do molest children use that power imbalance to their advantage. To their credit, the film-makers don't judge the men, they allow them to demonstrate for themselves how delusional their reasoning is and show the lies they tell themselves. In one sequence we see a NAMBLA member approach a boy in public and then later talk about how the boy was obviously flirting with him, something that is in no way evident in the footage shown. We also see NAMBLA members attempt to link themselves to the Gay/Lesbian/Transgender movement, and they are rightly told to get lost. This isn't an easy watch, but it is a fascinating attempt to understand the mindset of men who try to convince the world that a child would seduce them.

I'm willing to bet you'll finish this one and 5 other ones before I finish my top 100.

Looking forward to this though.

You've mentioned this one before - I think the South Park epi came up as well (and the fact I hadn't even known the term till Ebay started banning all the org's stuff)

Can rawlinson finish three lists at the same time?

It's like his own little version of the Olympics.

I can take or leave South Park a lot of the time, but that's a brilliant episode.

I don't even know why you're doing the list. We all know your number 1 is Shawshank.

Okay interesting start, not heard of this film but sounds like it might be a worth while watch so will seek it out. Keep it up!

99. Waking Ned



Director: Kirk Jones
Year: 1998

The Irish. A great bunch of lads? Loveable roughs with a twinkle in their eye and a song in their heart? Or are they callous ghouls who would be willing to steal from a corpse? That's the question Waking Ned asks of the viewer. In a small Irish village, Ned Devine wins the lottery. When the shock of the win kills him, his friends Jackie (Ian Bannen) and Michael (David Kelly) decide to keep the win for themselves, but when they realise he's won several million they have to involve the entire village in the scheme. It'd be very easy to mistake Waking Ned as the cinematic equivalent of a BBC Sunday night comedy drama, the kind of show that sets itself in a beautiful location to make it easier to sell abroad, and then does little else of value. You could see it as a big screen Monarch of the Glen or Ballykissangel, that is if you haven't actually bothered to watch the film Personally, I think it's more like a modern day Ealing, where a bunch of loveable characters take part in a criminal plot, but they're so charming that you can't help but come down on their side. The friendship between Jackie and Michael is what really powers the film, two overgrown schoolboys still loving every minute of life. And for those who would dismiss the film as twee, the scene with Lizzie Quinn and a telephone box should make you realise just how black the comedy is willing to get. If this is like a Sunday night comedy drama, then it's a missing episode of Hamish Macbeth.

Ooh, I thought, rawlinson tackles what is arguably my most popular decade. I'm bound to have seen the films he chooses for this decade.

Fuck's sake, rawlinson!
