I have five unseen. Will get to mother!, Sleeping Dogs Lie and World of Kanako (which is apparently free to stream with ads on Vudu).

Great list JDC. I shall get to The Act of Killing for starters.

Looks like it's time to finally catch up with The Squid and the Whale.  And maybe Wonder Boys.

I think both are very personal, interactional movies and would be good for you. I really don't think Wonder Boys has much love so would be nice to get an opinion from somebody else
