The invisible films (in Seattle, that is . . .)

It’s official: Not one of the five foreign-language nominees has yet appeared in a Seattle-area theater. “Waltz with Bashir” is due here next week, and “The Class” in February; no word yet on the other three.
As for the documentaries, we’ve seen three out of five: “Man on Wire” (and if you missed it, you really missed something), “Trouble the Water” and “Encounters at the End of the World” all had 2008 runs here. I’ve heard that “The Betrayal (Nerakhoon)” should turn up here by spring; no word on “The Garden,” a film I’m particularly interested in as I loved director Scott Hamilton Kennedy’s previous doc, “OT: Our Town.”
Speaking of docs, why didn’t Errol Morris’ “Standard Operating Procedure” make the final list? Politics, politics . . .
