I won't be able to watch either before Sunday, but would be interested in being a tie-breaker.

But we all know there's not going to be a tie.

I'm hoping my library has Ghost Dog so I can participate.

Ghost Dog is the better film.  more later?  :)
But I wish the public could, in the midst of its pleasures, see how blatantly it is being spoon-fed, and ask for slightly better dreams.

I really don't think that Ghost Dog is anywhere near the quality of Magnolia. Technically, emotionally, any way you slice it.

Got GD on the shelf and watched Magnolia (aka not the best US film of the 90s) two rounds ago.  I'll be in.
