Lovers of the Arctic Circle.

Most frustrating movie in the world but it's beautiful. Babes are way into it too.

A few more from Whaaa. I saw these in a film class as an undergrad.

The Last Temptation of Christ

The Seventh Seal

Cries and Whispers

The Red Shoes

These films are classics, but unless you are an aficionado of film, you probably haven't heard of them.

Some of my favourites:

Dark Days
A documentry into the homeless people living in the subways of New York. This is a rare and amazing look into a world that few even know exists. And you find yourself becoming far more engaged with the people in it than any other film I've seen, even though they are interspersed with crack heads and criminals. Moving piece.

Dead Man
A Jim Jarmusch film, with Johnny Depp playing an accountant from the East going West in the early 1800s, into the real Wild West. This is an awesome little movie showing what the West would have really been like: Horrible, dirty, ugly and very dangerous.

Ghost Dog: Way of the Samurai
Another Jim Jarmusch number, in which Forest Whitaker plays a mafia hitman who abides by the samurai code. With a soundtrack by The Rza, some of the best Mafia chat ever and some awesome hits, this film is a gem.

British "hood" movie, about a gang of London rudeboys doing their thing. Awesome soundtrack, and highly quotable. Not the cleverest, but hey, I've seen worse.

Coffee & Cigarettes
Another Jarmusch (my second most favourite director) movie. This one is very basic: Two celebrities sit and have a chat over coffee and cigarettes. Everyone from Steve Coogan to Billy Murray, via Jack White and Cate Blanchett. Rza and Murray are brilliant. Watch this.

A Room For Romeo Brass
As someone mentioned earler, Shaun Meadows (of "Dead Mans Shoes" and "This is Britain" fame) is one of the best British directors in decades, and my favourite director. This is my favourite piece of work. You get very much involved with the story, and Paddy Considine shows why he is the most under rated actor in the industry. He should have ALL the Oscars.

Just yesterday I actually sat thru The Legend of Billie Jean.

A bad coming of age movie that you just can't resist sitting thru.
