    Holy Motors has been removed and was apparently censored which upset a lot of netflix subscribers.

    Oslo, August 31st was one of the truest addiction stories ever.

    Wowza. Great list.

    Not just because of the trumped-up pride I have for seeing most of them in the theater (a couple in festivals and VOD rentals but still money spent). But that of them were money well-spent (except LONELIEST PLANET; I gotta agree with my fellow commenter there).

    I don't know about me and the older auteurs - I didn't see the Dardenne Bros' or Tarr's last (but that opening scene!). Maybe I'm a bit overwhelmed or afraid that seeing one will have me binge on their whole ouevre, respectively.

    The ones I have seen...

    1. Cosmopolis (move to #1)
    2. Cabin in the Woods

    Skip entirely:
    Holy Motors (overrated pointless tripe)
    The Loneliest Planet (not enough story for a feature)

    Waste of time.
