    Well Steve I hope this one doesn't bog down on you like my British tournament. I was planning on doing an Asian film tournament after the BFI is over. That is unless the BFI tournament is a flop.

    My taste in Italian Cinema tends to lean toward mainstream & Genre films so

    The Good, the Bad & the Ugly
    Black Sunday (1960) a.k.a. Mask of Satan
    Once Upon a Time in the West
    Dawn of the Dead
    Umberto D
    Big Deal on Madonna Street


    If DATD isn't applicable then replace it with Duck You Sucker

    I think the only Italian movie I've seen that hasn't been nominated already is Allegro Non Troppo. Not that great, but worth a nom.

    Isn't Dawn of the Dead primarily an American production?

    Re: Dawn of the Dead

    Yeah, that's why, as much as I love it, it won't be in the tourney.
