What it says. It was meant to be a top 10, but some films I wanted to add were not on the Auteurs – the list should be:
1. Perfume: the Story of a Murderer (Tom Tykwer, Germany/France/Spain/USA, 2006)
2. Donnie Darko
3. Inglourious Basterds
4. Down in the Valley (David Jacobson, USA, 2005)
5. Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust (Yoshiaki Kawajiri, Japan, 2000)
and then after that as it appears, starting with Cloverfield.
Hm. Kind of embarassingly (for this site) US-centric. ‘Basterds’ is actually the only one with non-English dialgoue (the anime I’ve only seen dubbed).
