Open Range
Lost in Translation
21 Grams
Rules of the Game - Criterion
American Splendor

I'll throw in with ctyankee and hope (again) for Dial M for Murder, though I'm not holding my breath. I'd also like to see The Spy Who Came in from the Cold make its way onto an available DVD, as well as Scorsese's Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore and Lumet's Prince of the City -- both of which make my top five should they be announced. The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane and Magic (Anthony Hopkins) would be nice, too.

Honorable mentions: The Human Stain; The Station Agent, Swimming Pool.
