As a manager in the Cup, I will not include any films chosen for my director, Kenneth Anger, or any particular film that I have to compete against in my matches out of good sportsmanship. The latter means the films against mine, not films from the same director up against other managers in other matches.

Remember, everyone is entitled to their opinion on films. Agree to disagree and remember this tournament was designed as a game and an excuse for everyone to see films they had on their To-Watch lists or encounter films and directors they did not know about. To argue over films is ultimately pointless and undermines the point of being cineastes, of learning of the vastness of cinema, and human existence in general through them, and why we enjoy/gain so much from everything from a film in this tournament to a Fast and The Furious sequel.

The only real rule is that I’m right. :)
