Drew, great to have this. The majority I have yet to see. In fact I believe I have only seen the Hitchcock, the Ophuls, the Tati, the Demy, and the Renoir.

I am particularly curious about the two Chabrol films. I have been a fan of a number of his films but have never had those two hit my radar.

Great list. I've only seen a few so I'm excited to check some of these out. Here's to 2016!
