It's a shame to see Coppola eliminated so quickly.

curse you luhks !! i adore both of these films... you may as well ask me which arm i'd prefer to keep !!
You owe the companies nothing. Less than nothing, you especially don't
owe them any courtesy. They owe you. They have re-arranged the world to
put themselves in front of you. They never asked for your permission,
don't even start asking for theirs.

This is the first poll I've had a hard time deciding. Both generation-defining films.

Finally settled for AN.

Apocalypse Now because it's great and I haven't seen Taxi Driver in years, so it's not fresh in my mind.
