Expressive Esoterica 2018

Films that wouldn't be my favorite discoveries of the year but were curiosities that I couldn't forget for one reason or another. Because of the nature of my viewing habits, this list might be way more interesting than my actual favorites, as the films are rarer and thus there's more for everyone to explore. The list spans a number of genres: action films, melodramas, educational documentaries, auteurist oddities, shorts, and elsewhat. My one rule was that each film had to be marked as watched by less than 250 people on Letterboxd, thus signifying some amount of anonymity. The list is in chronological order.
