Nicole Brenez's Cinemas D'Avant Garde (May 2020 Update)

Hat tip to Karthik's list, which both introduced the list to me and clued me in on the book itself. However there are minor issues with the existing list (wrong titles listed, extra titles listed, repetitions in notes section) and I'm anal retentive, so I'm making my own version. [Note, I started this years ago and had it private, just checked it and was able to add a lot more films. There's still a number of "not on LB" titles I haven't added, but it's much more complete now, and I can update as other titles get added]

Titles are ordered chronologically according to Brenez's listing, not necessarily according to IMDB/TMDB dates.

A lot are missing, including some that I've…
