My favourite movie of theirs, one of my favourites, period, is L'Enfant, about a teenage father who sells his baby without telling the teenage mother. Definitely worth checking out the Belgians if you like Reichardt's work. With all due respect, I agree about Williams over Lawrence, though it's like comparing Federer and Nadal in their prime--just awfully damn close, but really gifted either way.
The only film of theirs that I have seen is The Kid with a Bike and I didn't love it. I felt it tried to cover too much ground in a short amount of time. Why did the hairdresser decide to let a boy she hadn't even talked to live with her? Why did the boy become so loyal to the dealer that quickly? These issues needed some more attention and as a result I found the film rushed. Reichardt's films seem to be more focused to me. I will definately try to watch L'Enfant though. It sounds quite interesting.

Oh and come on, Nadal > Federer. That's an easy one.
