Criteria for these choices includes risk-taking and confronting challenging material with little concern for vanity; an overall sense of favorable critical response as well as awards and other accolades; choices of collaborators, and finally the overall quality of the work; the execution.

First Film: Ladies Man ( Jacques-Gérard Cornu, 1960), opposite Danielle Darrieux and Mel Ferrer.

Must-see: Repulsion (Roman Polanski, 1965); The Last Metro (Francois Truffaut, 1980); A Christmas Tale (Arnaud Desplechin, 2008)

Star Turn: Belle de Jour (Luis Bunuel, 1967)

Underrated: 8 Women (Francois Ozon, 2002)

Upcoming, Current and/or Recent: André Téchiné‘s The Girl on the Train was recently released on DVD.
