    Fantastic list and write-ups, Scott.

    Glad you spotlighted Villeneuve; I was introduced to his work through his gorgeous 2011 Polytechnique which I would urge you to catch up with. I was taken with Prisoners as a fabulously lensed, Blue Velvet-riffing genre piece until Melissa Leo and her leering, gross subplot had to bog the last third down. (I need to see Enemy and am dutifully expediting it up my catch-up list.) He’s a filmmaker whose portrayals of violence and its rippling, subtle effects are often disturbing and devastating.

    Your description of Goodbye to Language makes me want to push the thing even higher up my list. Truly the ‘essential cinematic experience of the year.’
