Dendy is thrilled to announce that renowned Australian director, actor and writer David Michod has come on board as Dendy Direct's guest curator for October.

 Michod, who wrote and directed Animal Kingdom, co-wrote Hesher, and whose latest film The Rover is available to rent or buy on October 15,  has pulled together a selection of fourteen films which are available on the service for the month of October.

Holding true to the emphasis on tailored curation, Dendy is excited to shine a light on a selection of diverse and interesting films from one film lover to a growing community of many others, all the while supporting the Australian film industry as we have strived to do for decades.

Dendy Direct continues to offer the unparalleled opportunity to discover content specially curated by film lovers for film lovers. Past guest curators include SBS' Sandy George and Screen Australia, and the guest curator for November will be Essie Davis, star of The Babadook.

This month's collection by Michod offers fourteen choices starting from $3.99 to rent (in SD).

On his selection of films, David said; "This isn't a list of my favourite fourteen films of all time. It's just a list – but hopefully an eclectic and rewarding one to wade through…sit back and take the list in as a whole and marvel at its weird wonderfulness."

The films selected are:

* The Act of Killing
* Apocalypto
* The Battle of Algiers
* Boy
* Chopper
* The Insider
* Master and Commander
* A Royal Affair
* The Royal Tenenbaums
* Snowtown
* Spring Breakers
* The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
* The Thin Blue Line
* The Tree of Life
