Timeless and legendary French movie magazine Cahiers du Cinéma released its list of the 10 best films of 2018. This is the bees knees as far as I'm concerned. Of course, I don't agree with all of these choices -"The Post," really?- but the group choosing Bertrand Mandico's “The Wild Boys,” is a very out-of-left-field choice. Love it. Now I have to watch Mandico’s feature directorial debut which is about five young boys — all played by women — who rebel against their captain on a sailboat.
“The Wild Boys” (Bertrand Mandico)
“Coincoin and the Extra-Humans” (Bruno Dumont)
“Phantom Thread” (Paul Thomas Anderson)
“Burning” (Lee Chang-dong)
“Paul Sanchez est revenu!” (Patricia Mazuy)
“The Post” (Steven Spielberg)

Last year, the magazine named David Lynch’s “Twin Peaks: The Return” its top film of 2017. The year before that Paul Verehoven's "Elle" topped their list.
