Drop a film that you think is great that seems like no one you know or have spoken to has ever seen or even heard of. I mean even lower than underrated status.

If you have Netflix Instant, I recommend this "lost Michael Mann film". Dope movie that no one seems to know about.

    Yeah, Caan murdered that role. Jacob's Ladder and Session 9 were the shit. It's easy to see their influence on the Japanese Silent Hill games.

    transsiberian - movie about 2 couples that meet up on a train going on the transsiberial railroad. one couple is involved in shady shit & gets the other couple caught up in a drug trade in russia. ben kingsley, woody harrelson, kate mara are in it.

    take shelter - man has apocalyptic visions & he gets obsessed with building with storm shelter for his family. michael shannon (nelson van alden) & jessica chastain in it.

    mississippi masala - older denzel movie where he starts dating this indian (dot) chick whose family moved there from uganda after idi amin took over & they clash cultures.

    half nelson - one of ryan gosling's first movies. he's an inner city middle school teacher who happens to be on drugs/depressed. he starts up a relationship with a black female student (no pedo) & they help each other out through their issues.

    Take shelter trailer looks goat

    if you didn't know,there's a sequel of sorts (more a spin off) called City Of Men,well worth watching if you can find it

    good choices, i seen all of these aside from the denzel flick,Take Shelter was one of my favorite films of last year,Shannon was beasting in that film.im looking forward to 'Mud' by the same director,heard great things about it.

    a couple of choice picks

    The Believer - Ryan Gosling plays a young jewish man who gets into neo-nazism.i don't think i need to say much more.

    Animal Kingdom - follows the story of a 17 year old Australian kid who has to deal with being in a criminal family and all the shit that comes with it.

    Worlds Greatest Dad - can't really say much about this one,its a (very) black comedy directed by Bobcat Goldthwait (the shrieking one from police academy) and stars Robin Williams as a teacher who has a little shit of a son and it kinda goes from there.

    and i have to rep Korean cinema since its the shit.

    Crying fist - great boxing film that stars choi min-sik (the dude who plays oldboy) as a former silver medalist boxer reduced to being a human punching bag on the streets,with a parallel story about a young delinquent man who ends up in prison and how their paths collide.shit gets emotional son.

    Love Exposure

    love_exposure_japan.jpg

    Overlong, ridiculously melodramatic and completely ridiculous, yet an absolutely delirious and brilliant film. I spent a night with a can of Red Bull watching this, and 4 hours and 20 minutes later I was just left completely blown away by it. Amazing film.

    The Skin I Live In

    skinIlive.jpg

    Loved the film so much I wrote a mini review about it on here that no one bothered to read. Should have been up for Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars when it was released.

    Some movies I found on netflix. Shiver (Spanish horror movie). The secret in their eyes ( Spanish thriller). The man from nowhere ( Japanese action crime thriller probably the best action movie on netflix). Foreign movies got some gems.
