And we’re back! The grand March Mad Movie Madness tournament marches on, with another 32 contests starting today. This round will cut the field down from 128 to 64.
There will be hard choices, but remember: the losers in this round will still finish in the top half of all the 366 Canonically Weird movies.
Spotlighted matches in this round: Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life (1983) vs. Spirited Away (2001) (two very well-known movies that are not “traditionally” weird; could set up a with Howl’s Moving Castle grudge match in the next round); Repulsion vs. Last Year at Marienbad (this could be a 1960s black and white art movie championship game); It’s Such a Beautiful Day vs. The Hourglass Sanatorium (two very different, but equally obscure, movies; we have no idea whether stick-figure animation will beat Polish Surrealism).
