The results of the Talkhouse Film poll are below, showing all the titles that received multiple votes; individual ballots will be posted tomorrow. Ten points were awarded to first place films, 9 points were given to second place, etc.; for unranked lists, each selection was awarded 5.5 points, the average of 1 to 10, giving each equal weight.
