Out of those, I recommend "The Corporation", "Triplets of Belleville", "Battle of Algiers", "Saddest Music in the World", and DEFINATELY "Some Kind of Monster". "Bad Santa" was also pretty enjoyable ("Can I fix you some sandwiches?"). Not GREAT, but if the oppertunity pops up, it's a solid enough black comedy.

I feel really bad that I can't comment on any more of the movies, as I've only seen a handful of them, but I'll edit this post if I come across anything else. If anything, that's a pretty solid list of movies to look out for...I'm an idiot for not seeing anything during the Toronto Film Festival, or the documentary film festival a while ago...

EDIT: I'm an idiot. Shaun of the Dead and Hero. Especially hero, but ESPECIALLY Shaun of the Dead!

It depends what your tastes are. I'm most interested in the Asian cinema (Old Boy, Hero, Ong-Bak, etc) and a few of the docos (Fahrenheit 911, The Yes Men, the Corporation, Control Room). Prices are quite high, though, so I'll probably wait to see the films that'll definitely get mainstream release, like Fahrenheit.
