Brazil or Vertigo?

UPDATED: Vertigo takes it. This is easily the most difficult match so far, because both movies are essentially perfect, and because they are alike in many ways (shifting identities, dream imagery, downbeat endings). I'd have to agree with Vertigo - it's an almost unbearably haunting and romantic film that has permanently burrowed into my subconscious. If you don't like it, we probably don't have much in common. Plus, it features my all-time favorite score.

Round 2 begins shortly. Bring galoshes.

Whoof, tough choice. I love 'em both, but I'm leaning towards Vertigo.
