The third on my list of the best films of 2018, "Hochelaga: Land of Souls," didn't have a U.S. theatrical release and is available for streaming only in Canada. I saw it at the Portland International Festival and actually had the DVD shipped to me via the Canadian branch of Amazon's platform so that I could watch it again.
