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

I Watch Films, But...
In a word, I think that, far from favoring directors’ formal inventiveness, widescreen, instead, stifles it. It is, I’m more and more persuaded, if not the only, at least the main culprit for the expressive poverty of the image today. - Eric Rohmer

35 Shots of Rum (2008) - Zodiac (2007)

La Commune (Paris 1871) (2000) - Los Angeles Plays Itself (2003)

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!)
