    Finally some films to fill out this list!

    1. First Reformed (Schrader)
    2. Burning (Lee)
    3. Under the Silver Lake (Mitchell)
    4. Roma (Cuaron)
    5. Happy Hour (Hamaguchi)*
    6. Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot (Van Sant)
    7. Madeline's Madeline (Decker)
    8. Donbass (Loznitsa)
    9. Claire's Camera (Hong)**
    10. Knife + Heart (Gonzalez)

    Also seen / at least partly liked: Ash is Purest White (Jia), Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood (Tyrnauer), 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.
