Downfall is quite, quite good.

It was unpopular enough that you couldn't even find the dvd to rent for the longest time.

I'm going to recommend some old ones.

The Sweet Smell of Success. Nasty little gem about the power of celebrity media. The screenwriter said that everyone involved in the movie "had a little piss in their blood." Thinly veiled biography of Walter Winchell who had a radio audience of 60 million people in the 50's and by the time he died in the early 70's, he had something like 12 people attend his funeral.

THE TAKING OF PELHAM ONE TWO THREE. The original, not the one with "1, 2, 3" in the title. The remake makes no sense because the whole point of the first movie was that it was completely specific to its time and place. Walter Matthau is hiliarious in it. Great portrait of old New York.

One, Two, Three
Hiliarious, late-slapstick move about James Cagney fighting the Cold-War in Berlin. As a Coca-Cola executive. Cagney does a spoof of his own image. Brilliant Billy Wilder movie and you should see most of Billy Wilder's movies.

Some of the films being mentioned aren't that unknown...tho I guess it's all relative.



Three random films, that aren't that well-known and haven't yet been mentioned:



Me And You And Everyone We Know (2005)


The Pallbearer (1996)...not a masterpiece, but I remember thinking it was very very good. I loved it.


Mona Lisa (1986)

Me And You And Everyone We Know (2005)
No kidding. I'm pretty sure most of the general population has heard of/seen Superbad and Boyz N the Hood.

Good call on Me and You etc. I liked it a lot when it first came out. There's not too much to the overall story but it's filled with great individual scenes. I'll always remember the goldfish and the walk down the "street of life" scenes.

My picks:

1. Man Push Cart
- One of my all-time favourites. Ramin Bahrani is one of the better directors out there and no one knows about him. This is a very minimalist film but I was really into the life of the lead character. I've never seen New York City be filmed better either. Not the easiest movie to watch though. Definitely on the "artsy" side.

2. The Trotsky
- Not your standard high school comedy. Lots of funny historical references and Jay Baruchel is endearing as a seemingly crazy and determined kid. Or maybe he really was Trotsky. A very likable movie if you give it a chance.

3. Last Night
(the Canadian one from 1998, not the recent one about whatever the hell it was)
- An end of the world movie about how people deal with their last few hours before humanity is wiped out. This is not an action movie and you never find out why the world is going to end. So don't go in waiting for that.

It's hard for me to think of some off the top of my head, but I can vouch for some being mentioned like The Trotsky, A Prophet, Attack the Block, and Moon.
