    Like the other tournaments, only it works in reverse - the movies nominated will be movies that sound interesting, but that for the most part haven't been seen. You abstain when you have seen one of the movies in a bracket; vote on which one sounds the most intriguing. I just ask that each entry have a reasonably-full IMDB entry so that we can give them a look and get properly intrigued.

    I'll start with two; everyone gets two automatics until we've got a decent field.

    The Assault
    The Baby of Macon
    Before The Rain
    Berlin - Alexanderplatz
    The Bride Wore Black
    The Brown Bunny
    City Girl (aka Our Daily Bread)
    Eegah
    Emperor of the North Pole
    Eyes Without A Face
    Face To Face
    Four Flies on Grey Velvet
    The Greene Murder Case
    Green for Danger
    Hardbodies
    A Human Murder Weapon
    Lemonade Joe
    Life Is a Miracle
    The Night of the Shooting Stars
    Oh... Rosalinda!!
    Proof
    Pushing Hands
    The Reflecting Skin
    Robot Carnival
    Santa Claus Conquers the Martians
    The Skywalk Is Gone
    Tales From The Gimli Hospital
    El Topo
    Vampire Circus
    Visitor Q
    Who Can Kill a Child
    Who Killed Pixote

    Good idea

    Are the films we're supposed to nominate ones we haven't seen?

    Well, that's what I did. I figured it would be kind of silly to nominate ones we couldn't vote for.

    alrighty then, it makes my choices rather tough as I make it a habbit to track down & watch all of the films that grab my interest.

    Here's a couple I've been seeking out for a while.

    Face To Face (1967)

    Eyes Without a Face (1960)

    The later is due out by Criterion I believe

    22 in; we need ten more for a power of two. Everyone gets automatics until we hit 32, so long as you let two other people add a movie between additions.

    I'll use The Greene Murder Case (#23)
