« on: July 07, 2017, 03:32:08 PM »
The 60's. The height of the international cinema canon. The Godard Years. Here they are battling it out. Here are the top 10 seeds and a link to the bracket.

01. 2001: A Space Odyssey (Kubrick, 1968)
02. 8 (Fellini, 1963)
03. Breathless (Godard, 1960)
04. Persona (Bergman, 1966)
05. Andrei Rublev (Tarkovsky, 1966)
06. Psycho (Hitchcock, 1960)
07. La Dolce Vita (Fellini, 1960)
08. Lawrence of Arabia (Lean, 1962)
09. Au hasard balthazar (Bresson, 1966)
10. L'avventura (Antonioni, 1960)

We will have a play-in round first before starting the tournament proper.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

The Innocents (Clayton, 1961) - America, America (Kazan, 1963)

All easy choices except the last which was a toss-up. I really liked The Great Escape, but it got matched up with the best film of the round.
