Tuesday's Overlooked Films and/or Other A/V: new links

aka I Promised to Pay in the US and other markets
This week's selections  (reviews and citations at the links below) of undeservedly (and a few deservedly) underappreciated audio/visual experiences...as always, thanks to all the contributors and you readers.
