1. Miami Vice (Michael Mann, 2006, USA/Germany/Paraguay/Uruguay)
2. Two Days, One Night (Jean-Pierre Dardenne/Luc Dardenne, 2014, Belgium/France/Italy)
3. Birth (Jonathan Glazer, 2004, USA/UK/Germany)
4. Guardians of the Galaxy (James Gunn, 2014, USA/UK)
5. Lucy (Luc Besson, 2014, France)
6. Enough Said (Nicole Holofcener, 2013, USA)
