    Finally some films to fill out this list!

    1. First Reformed (Schrader)
    2. Burning (Lee)
    3. Happy Hour (Hamaguchi)*
    4. Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot (Van Sant)
    5. Madeline's Madeline (Decker)
    6. Donbass (Loznitsa)
    7. Claire's Camera (Hong)**
    8. Ash is Purest White (Jia)
    9. Knife + Heart (Gonzalez)
    10. Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood (Tyrnauer)

    Also seen / at least partly liked: Three Faces (Panahi), Climax (Noé), BlacKkKlansman (Lee), Vent d'ouest (Anonymous), Custody (Legrand), Mandy (Cosmatos), You Were Never Really Here (Ramsay), Asako I & II (Hamaguchi), The House That Jack Built (Von Trier), Shoplifters (Kore-eda).

    * Including this here because I saw this in its French theatrical release, and it has been hard for a lot of people to see up until the semi-recent home video release.
    ** Same reasoning as Happy Hour.
