  • Leticia Belliccini in Q
  • Mini Anden in The Mechanic
  • Ludivine Sagnier in The Devil's Double

I have undoubtedly omitted some crucial ones just because I missed 'em, and I need some help on the deserving foreign nominees beyond the obvious selection of Q. Help me out with suggestions by e-mailing me here. Don't try to send me every possible scene from the year. We're looking only for scenes that somebody could reasonably consider the single best of the year, and we want the survey to include all scenes which reach that level of importance.

TV Round-Up

Cable is in a lull. Boardwalk Empire and Hung are finito for the anno, while Californication, House of Lies, Spartacus and Shameless haven't kicked off yet. (And then Game of Thrones comes in April.)

Defoe covered Rani (episodes 1 and 2) down in his area.

Apart from that, all we have is Noa Tishby in 2.3 times per week. (S1, e15). I think this is an Israeli series, but I don't know jack about it.

  • * Yellow asterisk: funny (maybe).

  • * White asterisk: expanded format.

  • * Blue asterisk: not mine.

  • No asterisk: it probably sucks.


Catch the deluxe version of Other Crap in real time, with all the bells and whistles, here.

The Sex Thief


You long-time readers may know that Tall Paul is an occasional contributor. He doesn't have a "branded" column like the regulars, but sends in some good stuff when the rest of us miss it. Here's an example. The Sex Thief was one of the better films from the golden age of British B films, and has been generally underrepresented here.

Gloria Walker

Jenny Westbrook. I remember her as being really sexy, but when I see her here, I wish she had more meat on her bones. Maybe my tastes have changed.

Linda Coombes

Susan Glanville

Diane Keen


Makoto Togashi in Guilty of Romance (2011) 1080p

Caroline Dhavernas in Surviving My Mother (2007)
(The clips is much better than the sample would indicate)

Chiara Mastroianni in Don't Forget You're Going to Die (1995)

Petronella Barker in Sweetwater (1988). The quality is not spectacular by any means, but I think this might be an upgrade from our previous clip.

Exploitation film legend Sylvia Kristel in Alice ou la derniere fugue (1977)

Exploitation film superstar (and world-class beauty) Edwige Fenech in Madame Bovary (1969)


Ana Beatriz Barros

Anna Brewster and Kate Cox

Miranda Kerr

Paulette Goddard (allegedly)

From the vault of obscurity: Janie Squire in Piranha
