My preference goes to Twentynine Palms, but I appreciate all of his films.

great film, great Binoche, no doubt about it, her greatest performance? one of her greatest I'd say, different and demanding for sure.

Not really. He seems pretty solid. I guess the films set in our time in northern France are his most characteristic. P'tit Quinquin ran as a mini series in France and fits in with your current long movie marathon. It also could interest you from a writing point of view.

Ma Loute (AKA Slack Bay, 2016) - Dumont's newly found sense of humor did work in P'tit Quinquin, but here it's getting on my nerves, especially since half of it feels like a rehash, pitched in a much sillier tone. Not sure if there is a meta comment to be found when Dumont combines his usual selection of non-professionals with French acting royalty, since the amateurs have to carry the few emotionally touching scenes, while Binoche, Luchini, et al. are made to appear like atrophied fossils hamming it up - Binoche's Streep impersonation is especially grating, however intentional.
