Post TSPDT 21st Century Bracket

I love brackets and tournaments. After half-paying attention to the NCAA March Madness stuff, I thought it would be fun to do a poll-only film bracket. No extensive write-ups are required, you just have to vote (if you want to write about your choices, go ahead please!).

Using the They Shoot Pictures Don't They 21st Century list, I made up a bracket of 250 films.

Here it is.

The top six seeds according to TSPDT get a bye and will come into play in the second round. Here they are:

1. In the Mood for Love (Wong Kar-Wai, 2000)
2. Mulholland Drive (David Lynch, 2001)
3. Yi Yi (Edward Yang, 2000)
4. Spirited Away (Hayao Miyazaki, 2001)
5. Werckmeister Harmonies (Bela Tarr, 2000)
6. The Tree of Life (Terrence Malick, 2011)

The rest of the films were placed randomly

If you haven't seen one of the films, it's your choice whether to vote or not. You can abstain or not. It's flawed, but oh well.

This post will be updated with the newest matches as they appear. The poll will go until there are no ties. Let me know what you think. Feel free to post what you voted for.

Sounds fun. Easy round. Have not seen Doorstep still, so I may get on that then vote. Voted on the others though.

My pick in Bold

Black Swan (2010) v. Devils on the Doorstep (2000)
Waking Life (2001) v. In the City of Sylvia (2007)
2046 (2004) v. The Dark Knight (2008)
The Pianist (2002) v. No Country for Old Men (2007)

Haven't seen The Return so I didn't vote on that matchup.

The forum apparently only lets you put up 10 options at a time. Otherwise, I would've added more matchups.

Waking Life v. In the City of Sylvia

Haven't Devils on my Doorstep or George Washington. Can't imagine voting for The Return or Black Swan though...
