Is it just to me or in this WC almost all of the choices were really great. Another round where I liked all the films. But this time the ranking was less difficult though.

Really good round. I wouldn't mind any of those films advancing, so props to all the managers. Unfortunately, I can't put all of them as 1 or 2, os here's my ranking:

1. The Incident: Intense as fuck and gritty. Just as I love my New York films. Great acting all around. A real gem! 8.5/10
2. Constans: Really good stuff about an idealist in a situation that doesn't fit his character. 7.5/10
3. Ne me quitte pas: A look at the lives of two alcoholics, that are trying to hold their lives together. Good in that it neither sugar coats nor sensationalizes their struggles. Hits close to home, as alcoholism is sadly an issue in my family. 7/10
4. La boca del lobo: Struggle of a guy in a shitty military detail, struggling with his morals, as other soldiers and officers are commiting atrocities. 7/10

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

Wait, I just checked the thread. Ne me quitte pas is like a real documentary? Holy damn, I thought it was some cinema verite style regular film. If so, I might have to rethink my ranking.

“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ (Matthew 25:37-40)

It treads a very fine line between being one and not.

Well, it won a Golden Calve for best feature documentary, so at least the Dutch academy considers it to be one. So I hope you rethink your ranking in time. :lol:

Oh, I didn't mean that necessarily as a bad thing. In fact a lot of great documentaries these days are treading that fine line (i.e Lucien Castaing-Taylor and Verena Paravel's work).
