But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

I would rather had semifinals between A and C, B and D. Now its sure the second semifinal winner would go on win the entire thing as three of the possible four had been our #1 favorite films before. So I am afraid final is going to be a bit dampner.

12 Il buono, il brutto, il cattivo (1966) - Dog Day Afternoon (1975) 3

In my opinion this is by far the easiest choice of the four quarter finals.

These are the positions of these movies in iCM Forum's Favorite 1001 Movies:

#11: Il buono, il brutto, il cattivo
#268: Dog Day Afternoon

#21: Apocalypse Now
#7: M - Eine Stadt sucht einen Mörder

#6: Stalker
#4: Psycho

#1: 2001: A Space Odyssey
#2: 12 Angry Men

It's ridiculous DDA is still in the game. It got lucky with the matchups.
It's also ridiculous the highest two meet each other and also the third and fourth title. So I agree with tommy that it's a shame winners of C and D meet each other the next round.

Unlucky I guess, it's always been random so I'm not going to use seeds now because the match-ups are not the best.

Also, using the 1001 as a comparison is not correct as we basically end up with the winner that most rated #1. All other ratings don't really matter

Forgot to vote yesterday, but, it didn't look like it would've mattered. I'd have voted for Dog Day Afternoon. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is my least favorite left.
