#13

A Touch of Zen
Attack the Block

Stray Cat Rock


#14

A Flame At The Pier or In the Lions Mane
It’s a 60s Yakuza film which there are so many of. But it has great sound design, a more nuanced than normal plot and two incredible gut punch moments. And it is one no one has heard of at this point so you get indie points.
