First Greece surged into the lead with 3 votes in a row, but now Mexico should be back on top with 5 in a row!

Hey sacmersault, are you aware of YuMex? There was a whole movement of singers who back in the 50s and 60s covered Mexican music because of Cold War/Non-Alignment thing.
This is my favourite one: :D

Thanks Mario! I didn't know such a thing existed. When I recognized the melody, I did a bit of research and supposedly the director included songs like this in a few of his movies. It still is a bit weird seeing/hearing this, especially because culturally we're super far apart.

It was just as exciting hearing Ana Gabriel in the Aborigine Samson & Delilah. I didn't know our culture had much of a reach outside of the US and in food stuff.

1. O fovos 9/10
2. Macario 8/10
3. 36 7.9/10
3. Sjećaš li se, Dolly Bell? 6/10

I saved O fovos as the last film to watch and the ending sequence shot it from a 8 to 9/10.

36 would have ranked #1 or #2 in almost any other round for me but O fovos and Macario are just too strong.

Due to the world cup and nice weather and being at a festival for some days, I barely managed to watch the films in time (again). Glad I made it though, as the round was quite good again. So cheers to all the managers for their good selections. I liked all of them and the ranking was close.

1. O fovos 7.5/10 - Tense, but a bit too blunt at times.
2. 36 7/10 - Just a little bit too miminalist to get the top spot.
3. Macario 7/10 - I can't say I was too big a fan of the ending, else this might have won this round for me.
3. Dolly Bell 7/10 - Nice coming of age stuff.
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.

1. O fovos - 7.8 - best of the match, and one of the best of the round so far. Saw it a few months back due to Arthur's push. One of the rare times our tastes agree :)
2. Macario - 7.5ish - Pretty decent, but definitely benefiting from a relatively weak round. Also, the lead actor just got invited to join AMPAS at age 93.
3. Sjećaš li se, Dolly Bell? - 6.5ish - odd brand of humour, not really my style. My first Kusturica (and his); are all of his films like this?
4. 36 - 6ish - I can appreciate the technique (the still shots and the fact that you never saw Oom's face) and what the director was trying to do (but only after I read about the film), but it did nothing for me. Couldn't care about the main character or her situation.
about MacarioShow
When it first became apparent that the entire thing was a dream, I got pissed off and almost stopped watching. But when it turned out he died instead of being asleep, I was fine again. I'm glad it wasn't just lazy storytelling so they could do some fantasy and then undo it. It was a good story and I wanted it to have a proper ending, not some fairytale one (even if it's based on novel based on a fairytale).

This was pretty much Forman (unsurprisingly, he studied at FAMU), but later he shifted to Fellini vibe and sometimes even Jeunet (Underground).

His kind of humour isn't my thing either. My favourite Bosnian film might be A Little Bit of Soul by Ademir Kenović. It's funnier and sadder than Dolly Bell, so don't miss it.

Was going to marathon all 4 films before the deadline but haven't felt too well today. Not going to happen at this point. At least the match is decided with or without my participation.

I also watched because Arthur's recommendation. I loved it then and even chose Greece just because of this film. So all credits should go to him. :)
Hope he has another gem of this kind up in his sleeve. Could very well use it again in the next round :D

This is one of my all time favourite films. Unfortunately no other hidden gems. Maybe the forum will like Singapore Sling :lol:
My father didn’t have the skill of a professional cameraman. The result? Avant-garde cinema.

I couldn't find the time to watch the films in a round I recommended, but it seems like it was a tough competition. I'll make sure to eventually watch O fovos and Macario.

Well, I'm glad I introduced you to it. :)

I recommend you to check out more from Kusturica if you haven't. When Father Was Away on Business is the closest to it in terms of style, but Time of the Gypsies is by far my favorite of his.
