If you haven't already, you should try Parajanov as well, The Color of Pomegranates and his others.

People are probably aware of it, but Dragged Across Concrete hasn't been mentioned before, new Zahler (Bone Tomahawk, Brawl in Cell Block 99), gritty, bleak and brutal, anti-PC, long but I enjoyed every minute of it, Gibson, the bad boy of Hollywood, is a perfect anti-hero. Definitely recommended.



Another atmospheric slow burner, the Vanishing. Straight forward plot enriched by strong performances, a ton of tension and bleak surroundings, probably not worthy of repeated watches, but worthy of the first one.



The Golem - It caught my attention because of its The Witch-vibes, but the whole thing was quite underwhelming. Still probably a decent watch if you are longing for some historic rural indie horror with satisfying visuals but lacking in the plot department.
