Do you know what the scariest thing is? To not know your place in this world, to not know why you're here. That's - that's just an awful feeling. -- Elijah Price,  Unbreakable (2000)

Touch Me Not (Adina Pintilie, English-German, Berlinale Golden Bear winner + GWFF Best First Feature Award)

Polarizing reviews! Peter Bradshaw called it "embarrassingly awful" and the film's recognition at the Berlinale as a "calamity" for the festival.

On top of what has already been listed, here are other titles I would choose (removing Blackkklansman, not that we've all seen it):

Arctic - Played at Cannes, very well received.
Birds of Passage - From the director of Ebrace of the Serpent, well received.
The Wild Pear Tree - forum favourite Nuri Bilge Ceylan
Three Identical Strangers - Winner at Sundance, highly acclaimed.
Non-Fiction - Oliver Assayas, Juliette Binoche, playing at TIFF.

Also, I would probably remove both The House that Jack Built and Everybody Knows from this list..
