I have seen most of the ones listed and really think that most semi serious film fans would have seen or at least heard of them. There have been a ton of indie or older flicks listed.

But if you want something you may have missed thats older and screwed up, check out Phantasm. The acting ain't all that but its such a screwed up story you'll keep watching to try and make sense of it all. If you ever played Turok on N64, that game ripped the cerebral bore straight from this flick.

A movie I just saw recently in NYC at the Pioneer Theater that I thought was really good was Liberty Kid. Its the best 9/11 flick I have seen by a wide margin.

6ixtynin9 - Very funny thriller from Thailand

Fallen Angels - Nice Hong Kong assassin movie by Wong Kar Wai (also be sure to watch Ashes of Time and Chungking Express)

Two Lane Blacktop - Very cool 70's American road trip/drag racing movie with Dennis Wilson and James Taylor

Versus - A hilarious Japanese zombie movie. Matrix meats Evil Dead.

Bottle Rocket - Wes Anderson and Owen Wilson's first, funniest, and most human move

Finally, a movie everybody has heard of, but few have probably seen because it looks so stupid:

Last Action Hero

I'm serious. I saw it on TV the other day and thought it was really good. If you love film I think you will love this movie due to all the references it makes, some obscure (Amadeus, Seventh Sign). Give it a chance and come back and flame me if you want
