18. La Marea
First feature from the man behind the amazing cinematography in Carlos Reygadas's films.
First feature film by George Ratliff, who made the great doc Hell House.
20. TV Carnage
Amoeba Music loves TV Carnage. I love TV Carnage. Someone fly Pinky into town for a night in his honor! Or fight for the honor of premiering his mega-cop movie.
This should probably be higher. Stan Douglas's endless Cariboo-set epic installation, with soundtrack by Rhythm and Sound. Add his take on Suspiria for good measure.
You prolific gore-hound. We loves you.
