Voted for Dunes, as it's the only one I've seen in it's entirety. The first thirty minutes of The Face of Another were damn promising, though!

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

Hmmm...  Hard to say, non are all that impressive...
I’ve lied to men who wear belts. I’ve lied to men who wear suspenders. But I’d never be so stupid as to lie to a man who wears both a belt and suspenders.

Pitfall (1962)

I thought I was in for a rough ride with the opening scenes discussion of poverty and labor unions. That Woman in the Dunes would be the stylish exception for Teshigahara in a filmography of neo-realism. (This comes off the back of the disappointing Masaki Kobayashi against the System box set.) Fortunately, things take a turn into fantastical surrealism and the style soon reminded me very much of my Woman in the Dunes experience. The economic plight isn't dropped, but compared to the supernatural story (with a handful of wonderfully odd characters) it's more of a distraction.

Looking forward to The Face of Another and I think Antonio Gaudi is on next month's Top 100 Club.
