Eh, now that I'm on Netflix, I might as well post a list. I'll try to keep it somewhat short. I'll try to keep off really big named stuff.
The Fall- The most beautiful movie I've ever watched. Incredibly imaginative.
Primer- The most complex and real time travel movie ever made.
Bronson- One of the most enjoyable movies I've ever watched, By the director who did Drive (which is also on Instant and is very good). It's violent,
it's funny and it's weird, which is always worth points with me. It's about one of Britain's most violent criminals.
God Bless America- Two people going on a killing spree targeting annoying people.
Wet Hot American Summer- Hilarious parody of '80s camp movies.
Brick- By the director who did Looper. One of the best modern noir movies. The concept sounds stupid, noir set in high school, but it works very
Miller's Crossing- The Coen Bros. best movie (I like Big Lebowski, that's probably their best comedy, but this is a better movie). Gangster movie set
in the '20s.
Mulholland Dr- Not obscure, but too amazing and weird to leave it off the list. David Lynch. Weird, scary and sexy.
Punch Drunk Love- A romantic comedy about genuinely insane people. Adam Sandler is an adult movie that really requires him to act.
In The Loop- Really smart British comedy about politics on both sides of the pond. A bumbling politician accidentally gets Britain involved in the
Dogtooth- AMAZING Greek movie. You might feel dirty after you watch it, but it's worth it. A mother and father isolate their children, never letting
them leave the property. They feed them misinformation about the outside world.
Santa Sangre- A weird take on horror movies by the amazing cult director Alejandro Jodorowsky.
Double Indemnity- Noir classic.
Grave Encounters- A pretty good found footage horror movie.
Secret of Kells- Great animated movie about a monastery and a boy's fascination with the illumination on the Book of Kells. Very unique animation
The Man Who Fell to Earth- Very slow, kind of artsy '70s sci-fi movie starring David Bowie. Lot of nudity. It's slow, but it also has a kind of
Also, going to echo recommendations for "The Man From Earth" and "Death Race 2000."
