Seen these. I don't know how much you'll like them. Do you generally like Lanthimos? I think you may enjoy Lady Macbeth.

Now, to Google The Villainess.

Dogtooth was okay, but I liked The Lobster a lot, enough to where I plan to watch Alps even though I hear it's not too good.

It's pretty terrible. Has one really good action sequence.

I rented Columbus for $0.99 from Amazon last night, in honor of the thread starter.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Columbus is also "free" on Hulu, if that's an option. I hope to make use of it before nominations are due.

Im not a quitter, Kimmy! I watched Interstellar all the way to the end!

Columbus is excellent.

I can't recommend Dawson City: Frozen Time highly enough. It's staggeringly good. It's on iTunes and Filmstruck.
