    I watched Babyteeth on Friday. It's excellent and on Netflix in the UK at the moment

    Forgot to recommend Elizabeth Hupert's Time Of The Wolf, Elle, Amour and Happy End.
    Also staying with France, I heartily recommend With A Friend Like Harry which is wonderfully twisted brick...must check out Lupin and Untouchable!

    Seen all of them except for Baxter. Never heard of that
    You don’t have A Prophet on there which is outstanding
    or Y Tu Mama Tambien
    And for Scandinavia one of my favourites is Troll Hunter which is great too
    And let the right one in
    And (I’m not a book reader) the original girl with the dragon tattoo series are so much better than the Hollywood versions

    As I was saying... IMO the standard has improved, a lot

    Lupin is smart and clever but very slick
    I’ve described it as Luther crossed with the Hustle to a few friends

    Where is the Florida Project on in UK?

    Also La Haine is in my top 10 ever. Stunning movie. The mixing scene on the estate is one of the great pieces of cinema of all time.

    Have you seen Intouchables? The original french version. It’s a cute, easy watch

    Great film. Don’t watch Irreversible by the same director I think. Scarred me for life.

    Tough watch.

    I also don't have Amoros Perros (arguably better).
    Let The Right One In is great, and agreed on A Prophet. There are so many fine French films...we haven't even touched Truffaut.

    I have to say, I did not tab you as a Fassbinder fan. Knife In The Head is brilliant. 1978.

    Of course, speaking of Ganz...Downfall.

    That's the one. Yes. Gaspar Noe always liked to shock. There is only one scene of its kind which is harder to watch IMO, and that is in The Nightingale - what a film, but a hard one.

    Downfall is great
    Anything that’s about Hitler tends to be great

    Train to Busan is one of my favourites
    Very very different due to the nature of its subject matter but super clever and done so well

    babyteeth has been recommended to me by a few people

    I thought it was OK but the lady across the road and the pianist were superfluous, could have been a better film with just the 4 main characters

    I think that's fair. The dinner with her and the music teacher seemed a bit forced. That aside, I thought that it was enjoyable.
