As much as I hate to choose between Borat and New World, it's worse to have to pretend either Mystic River or Kung Fu Hustle arent unwatchable heaps of feces

Million Dollar Baby (2004) - 12 Years a Slave (2013)

Hardest match-up was La Commune vs. Los Angeles Plays Itself, two movies I love. But the latter wins, in the end. Most brilliant thing of its kind I've ever seen (twice).

I haven't caught the The Hours, otherwise I would add a vote for The Holy Girl (my least favourite Martel, though!)
