Wig, I want to see your list!

Did a little digging and found that four of my ten don't appear on any of the Little White Lies lists. Totally understandable in the case of The Strange Little Cat, Like Father Like Son, and Himizu. But where is A Touch of Sin?!

Also, I put the wrong Sono on mine. Guilty of Romance is a significantly greater film, though I love it somewhat less.

Goodbye to Language
The Master
To the Wonder
Melancholia

Yeah, I mostly did, too. Which is why I should have used the other Sono.

Computer Chess was on my shortlist (along with Post Tenebras Lux, A Field in England and A Simple Life).

3. The Act of Killing (Joshua Oppenheimer)
4. Holy Motors (Leos Carax)
5. Bastards (Claire Denis)
6. Post Tenebras Lux (Carlos Reygadas)
7. The Turin Horse (Béla Tarr)
8. Almayer's Folly (Chantal Akerman)

Sorry. The hype is huge on that one, unfortunately. But Hou Hsiao-hsien is like a top 5 director for me, so it was damn near inevitable in my case. It's a contender for his best film IMO.

I have. It's so good! Another haunting poem of loss, but this time transplanting Ventura from the dreamy Lisbon of Colossal Youth to a timeless prison/hospital/mental space of torment and regret. It sent shivers down my spine.

Hmm, I don't know how I'd rank it. It's very similar to Colossal Youth, but darker, with much broader concerns of history and guilt.

I could maybe put his work in tiers:

Horse Money/ Colossal Youth/ Casa de Lava
Ossos/ O Sangue
In Vanda's Room
