Ah balls. I didnt realize the Crucified Lovers was a movie I've seen and loved because I always have just associated the film as Chikamatsu monogatari. Now it is eliminated thanks to me not voting there  :(

On TSPDT, they actually have it as Chikamatsu Monogatari, but I put it here as The Crucified Lovers because that's how I've always known it!

The only match-up I can vote for is a pretty tough one.

Arnold beat Mizoguchi? Wow.

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