This list is great Matt, not least because I didn't know many of these films (by Directors I like - the Dardennes, Kaurismaki etc.) were actually coming.

I'm most looking forward to Hou Hsiao Hsien's THE ASSASSIN, as well as TURIN HORSE, MELANCHOLIA and THE GRANDMASTERS.

I'll bookmark this post so as not to let these films pass me by.

Thanks Stephen.

Yeah, I look forward to the 'Turin Horse' as well. The reviews should be coming soon from Berlin.

And anything by Hou Hsiao Hsien is on my 'to see' list.
