Rarefilmm recommendations

Rarefilmm.com is an amazing resource, streaming more than 2,000 films which aren't legally available in the US or UK for free. Here is a list of films on their site that I've seen and liked. I saw many before I signed up for Letterboxd, so that's why not everything has a rating or review from me. Speaking from a US perspective, it's a shame that one has to turn to grey means to see Olivier Assayas' first 2 films, or major work by directors as great as Raul Ruiz, Robert Bresson, Jacques Rivette, Manoel de Oliveira, Alain Resnais, Glauber Rocha, and Hou Hsiao-hsien. When New Yorker Films went out of business, they took much of their catalogue out of video availability, and insured that much of the remainder would never be legally available here.
