To select our 4/20 Midnite Movie this year, we held Nitehawk’s inaugural MARIJUANA MADNESS TOURNAMENT. We started by pitting 64 of the best stoner flicks, oddball gems, psyche-outs and dreamscapes against one-another and whittled them down to the Sweet 16. We left the fate of the tournament up to you, Hawks, with weekly votes via Nitehawk’s Instagram account.
Update: The results are in! The winner of this year’s MARIJUANA MADNESS TOURNAMENT is…. not VIDEODROME. It lost to Richard Linklater’s Dazed & Confused in the finals, 227 – 203.
We felt bad for the 203 who clamored for some sadomasochism and living televisions so we’ve added a special Participation Trophy screening the following week. We’re all winners!
