I saw a lot of good one's mention that I'd put on my list too. But I'm gonna throw one out there that hasn't been mentioned yet.

INK



Independent and brilliant.


A mysterious creature, know as Ink, steals a child's soul in hopes of using it as a bargaining chip to join the Incubi - the group of supernatural beings responsible for creating nightmares.


has an awesome soundtrack too.

Blood Was Everywhere

Most indie film isn't really independent. It comes from the same machine all the other crap comes from.

Beyond the Black Rainbow was the best movie I saw last year in a tie with Bernie (though that may not be considered independent - I don't even know what the hell that term means).

Eraserhead is the best movie I will probably ever see in my lifetime.

Santa Sangre has some problems but I wanted to keep watching. It doesn't hold up as well the second time around.

The Fall is a classic example of a movie that suffered from too much budget.

Have you seen Time Crimes? Spanish flick. Watched it twice in a row. You should check it out.

I'd guess that Bernie is probably an indie movie. Sometimes it's tough to tell. It's a movie that I really don't think would have had a lot of mainstream success, so I doubt it would've been made by a big production company.

I have seen Time Crimes. It's pretty great, though the massive paradox in it is frustrating. Still good though. It seems that if you want to make a good time travel movie, it has to be an independent movie: Time Crimes, Primer and I could've swore I heard that Looper was done semi-independently, but it looks like that isn't true.

I disagree with you about The Fall. It's amazing partly because of it's budget. Tarsem Singh was saving for years to be able to make this insane movie that no studio would ever have let him make. The budget let him shoot on location at all those amazing places and pay for miniatures instead of using green screens and CGI.

I honestly felt bad for not liking The Fall more but it felt too self indulgent and needed a firm hand with editing. Given what you've said I can see why some footage stayed that should have gone. Maybe I will give it another chance someday.

One of my favorites is The Songcatcher. It's set in the early 1900's in the Appalachian mountains. It features a young Emmy Rossum. It has lots of great bluegrass and mountain music.

It's cool that many old ballads actually came over from settlers from the U.K. Some have been varied over the many decades.

Anyone who like this kind of music would probably enjoy. Oh and Aidan Quinn is really good in this movie as well

This really isn't one of my favorites but I had a small part in it so I thought I'd post it anyway.
