You’ll rarely see these films on people’s “Best of the Decade” lists, but they’re definitely worthy of your attention. I tried, for the most part, to avoid “canon” directors, even if they did make something in the last decade that was largely ignored, the closest I have to a canon director is probably James Benning, but seeing as his films cannot be seen on DVD and are limited to festivals and rare screenings, I’d consider him to a director who’s overlooked.
Thanks for fanning this list, keep checking back here, I’m always stumbling on some odd gem here and there. And by checking this list you’ll at least have seen two films that you’ve probably never seen before: Lift & She is Reading Newspaper.
