Up is fucking awful. Those who voted for it should think on their sins. And change their vote.

These were both so good, but I have to give the edge to Waiting. It's like Costa, Kiarostami, and Denis rolled up and sprinkled with a little Wong Kar-wai. Look!

Yeah. Finally watched Los Angeles Plays Itself because of this thread. Counting Unknown Pleasures (another winning film I watched after the vote), I've watched 13 films for this thread. Guess I'll rank them:
  • Bad Education
    Platform
    Waiting for Happiness
    Together
    Unknown Pleasures
    The Sexy Beast
    Ten
    Silver Linings Playbook
    Los Angeles Plays Itself
    The Five Obstructions
    Minority Report
    Moolaadé
    Beasts of the Southern Wild
Need another batch!
