Don't Look Now vs The Wicker Man - battle of kitschy artsy horrors

Now since Christopher Lee has just passed away, I had been thinking about The Wicker Man and then I thought about which films I could compare it to. Not a lot of ideas surfaced, but one of them had actually some merit, I thought. It's Don't Look Now, a film that's strikingly different with regards to plot, but similarly indulging in straddling the line between the art and kitsch.

Which of the two do you think is better one and why?

I think I'd pick Don't Look Now for its mystery-building and cinematography, albeit The Wicker Man's ending might be better.

Haven't seen DNL. The Wicker Man was pretty good although not much rewatch value...indeed an interesting combination of "art" and kitsch.

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

DLN has one of the coolest endings man.

Love when the table with glass smashes earlier also. Weirdest sound/picture relation.
