the piano teacher, spider, femme fatale, keane, waiting for happiness, and esther kahn are maybe my favorites by their respective directors

unlisted: The 10th District Court: Moments of Trial,

I don’t wanna make a late 2000s list for a while, but without thinking too hard about it, some stuff that’d probably be on there would be Hamaca Paraguaya, Last Train Home, Everyone Else, Of Time and the City, Un Lac, Control, Syndromes and a Century, A Bittersweet Life, Tokyo Sonata, Me and You and Everyone We Know, Drag Me to Hell, You the Living, Shirin, Happy-Go-Lucky, Fish Story, Sparrow, Away From Her, I Am Love, Colossal Youth, Mister Lonely, Bright Leaves, White Material, Children of Men, I Don’t Want to Sleep Alone, Bubble, The Assassination of Jesse James, Last Days, Dave Chappelle’s Block Party, Eternal Sunshine, John & Jane Toll-Free, White Palms, The Prestige, In the City of Sylvia, Let the Right One In, Workingman’s Death, Import/Export, Gitmek: My Marlon and My Brando, Our Beloved Month of August, My Dear Enemy, My Son My Son What Have Ye Done?, Coraline, The King of Escape, Wild Grass, Tony Manero, Oxhide II, etc.
