def some new stuff for me to track down

kinda surprised something like cleo from 5 to 7 would be their top of the french new wave, for instance
Varda was coined the grandmother of the new wave after all

Notably lacking crimes of the future, pearl, bones and all, and northman imo
Yeah, I need to see some more of these, but this list only has 3 that would be in my top 25 as of now which I all consider great. Pretty good year iirc.

Maverick making it over all these is a little ridiculous to me. I've rarely agreed with Ehrlich over the years so its placement makes sense.

I like his movies a lot, but he has always been kind of an edgelord.

Something in the Dirt, the new Moorhead/Benson, was a lot of fun. Their second jaunt featuring themselves as the mains, following the more epic leaning 'the Endless'. This one felt like they were parodying each of their filmmaking roles, while simultaneously going down the rabbit hole of some kind of paranoid Ancient Aliens conspiracy spoof. Ended up being their most introspective work yet, without sacrificing their usual engaging go for broke storytelling. I hope they never get too big, because the maverick independent bravado they put on really works for me.

Also rewatched Jeanne Dielman this morning. My god what an absolute triumph. I wish Chantal was still around to see this at the top of the S&S poll.

That's the only one I haven't seen. I've really liked the other four though. What were your problems with it?
