Voting Rules:
- You must watch all 4 films before you vote.
- To vote, rank the 4 films from most favorite to least favorite. (note: you're ranking the individual films, not the countries)

Voting deadline = Jul 22nd
Countdown till deadline

The countries that end at 1st and 2nd place proceed to the next round. The ranking of the match will be decided using these rules:
- Ranked by lowest average ranking.
- In case of a tie between two movies, head-to-head determines the winner (how many people thought A>B and how many thought B>A).
- In case there's still a tie after the previous rule or there is a tie between three or four movies, most #1-votes determines the winner.
- Still a tie? Fewest #4-votes determines the winner.
- Still a tie? The match will have a 3 day extension (except when the tie is only between #3 and #4).

Here's a quick summary of how the tournament works

Before coffee kicked in, it took me WAY longer than it should have to realize you weren't claiming this was the 1000th match of the World Cup. :whistling:

That's the kind of film it is.
I thought it was amazing, myself, but I like all of the others, as well, and would rank them:
Brazil- 9
Italy- 8.5
Vietnam- 8
Switzerland- 7.5

Bet that makes it rank 4th.

You should already prepare for the R2. Dress your gym suit and take Alpine Fire and White Stadium to a training session.

Sad to see such a unique film as Lavoira Arcaica getting such poor treatment from those who simply can't appreciate its brilliance.

Adapted from a famous novel in Brazil that mixes "rural gothic" with heart-torn poetry, this film was a passion play for one of Brazil's best cinematographers of the past 30 years.
some of the imagery in this film has remained etched in my memory ever since.
It's definitely not a film for everyone, but it continues to upset me when I see films that contain such vision and artistry end up with a mundane viewer rating because of the polarized responses

Of course, this is often the case when it comes to works of art that venture beyond the familiar norms, and more typical presentations. In fact such a response is in itself fairly typical.

The vietnamese film is also pretty unique and extraordinary, and I wonder if the same folks rating them 5's and 6's treat david Lynch's surreal dreamscapes with the same disparagement.

Maybe try rewatching it to see if your opinion changes?

If you were planning to rank it 2nd, try to rewatch it in ideal viewing conditions.

If you were planning to rank it 3rd, try to get some glare from a window to ruin the movie for you.
