Videodrome or Nashville?

UPDATED: The way of the flesh wins it. Cronenberg is one of the most exciting directors working today, so it's a fair defeat. I will say this: Nashville is one of the defining works of American cinema. It's essential. But, in its own way, so is Videodrome. The thing is, everyone who submitted top tens chose such excellent films that every showdown feels like a triumphant victory and a bitter defeat. Oh well, it don't worry me.

Shamefully, I've not seen Nashville. But Videodrome is in my top ten of all time, so I feel pretty damn safe choosing it.

Nashville is poetry. It has my vote.

I vote Videodrome, which also happens to have my favorite Criterion Collection packaging...or at least one of my favorite.

Aw man! I just watched Nashville for the first time tonight, and I was giddy to get on here and cast my vote.
