Ukraine paced its effort well and won the sprint to the deadline :)

monty hasn't voted in any match. If he did in the nick of time, USA might have been 2nd. :o

Really a shame that we won't be seeing more obscure American films in the World Cup this year. Oh well, more world cinema is never a bad thing.

If those films are of interest to you, maybe check out the Amerarkana thread in the general discussion forum. A lot of the films mentioned there are fairly obscure, and thematically similar to Cockfighter (which may or may not fall into the Amerarkana category).

Dang. I guess we deprived ourselves of a sex comedy, then.

Actually I've only seen two.
The other one is The Blood of Hussain, but I don't like it.
I'll check Mario's recommendation Towers of Silence though, despite that Pakistan has lost.

At least I'm glad that Jago hua savera enters DTC before this game, so it shall be safe for a few years. :P
