Influential French film magazine Cahiers du Cinema has named its Top 10 Movies of 2013, with Alain Guiraudie’s excellent cruising thriller Stranger by the Lake emerging as their favorite.

The typically auteur-heavy selection also gave nods to Harmony Korine’s mad-genius Spring Breakers, Abdel Kechiche’s Palme d’Or champ Blue is the Warmest Color and Alfonso Cuarón’s galactic ride Gravity, while also recognizing Steven Spielberg’s relatively old-fashioned Lincoln (which was released in 2013 over there.)

You can bet the Oscars won’t be this interesting.

Here’s the full list:

1. Stranger By the Lake (Dir: Alain Guiraudie)

2. Spring Breakers (Dir: Harmony Korine)

3. Blue is the Warmest Color (Dir: Abdellatif Kechiche)

4. Gravity (Dir: Alfonso Cuarón)

5. A Touch of Sin (Dir: Zhang Ke Jia)

6. Lincoln (Dir: Steven Spielberg)

7. La Jalousie (Dir: Philippe Garrel)

8. Nobody’s Daughter Haewon (Dir: Hong Sang-soo)

9. You and the Night (Dir: Yann Gonzalez)

10. La Bataille de Solférino (Dir: Justine Triet)
