  1. Very cool list with a few choices I haven't seen. I love "Under the Skin", "Burgundy", "Mommy", "Mountains". "Sunset Song" didn't really work for me, probably my least favorite Davies film. Will be sure to seek out "Mediterranea", "Radiator" and "The Last Family".

  2. Always enjoy reading these types of lists! Under the Skin was a unique experience. 45 Years, Mommy, and Margaret I could easily imagine on my own decade list.

    Inherent Vice had a good soundtrack and Mr Turner impressive production design. Although I didn’t love the storytelling in those two films.

    I just watched the trailer for Radiator which looks like a British equivalent to Amour in that it’s about elderly parents.
