I should put the disclaimer that the "Bondo Collection" is constructed to leave out well established films, thus does not include the likes of The Matrix or The Hurt Locker. Actually, that's about the only two I can think of that got left out as a result of that limitation. Not enough films directed by women get to that level of establishment in the canon.

The fact Lost in Translation hasn't been mentioned yet is kinda ridiculous.
