    I hated that movie. It was boring and pointless. Like omg, a twist!
    Blah.

    You and every other college guy ever. It was a nice shoot 'em up, and Defoe was hilarious, but I don't think it was as hotshit as so many made it out to be.

    It's good, but hardly unknown.

    Coffee & Cigarettes? Really?
    I thought the RZA, GZA Murray sketch was funny, but most of it was... black and white and bleh.

    Iggy pop and tom waits and coogan and molina were the best. About half of it was pretty good. I just love quality dialogue, it was a rare gem in that regard.
    Dead man too when they're casually arguing about who gets to rape johnny depp while he's sitting there, hawhaw

    Off the top of my head

    Paperhouse — Truly great "horror" film.
    The Lotus Eaters — Perhaps my favorite film ever.
    War of the Buttons — Charming. Delightful. Lovely.
    Closet Land — Drink heavily while watching this film. Alan Rickman at his finest.
    The Girl I Want — Best line: "Holy homosexuality!" (Burt Ward). I still can't believe it's a 1993 film, though.

    The Great Race is a really good movie from the 60s, with Jack Lemmon. I dont know how unknown it is, but I dont think many people know of it.

    Memento

    "Memento is one of those pictures that will have you sitting in the theater after the lights come up so you can talk to everyone else about what they thought of the movie. This is a highly intelligent and original brain teaser that will have you guessing from beginning to end, and even afterwards. The story and the direction are the best I've seen so far this year, and it deserves all the kudos it gets.

    Plainly put, the film tells the story of Leonard Shelby: a man who lost his short term memory in an assault where his wife was raped and murdered; now he's looking for the killer, despite his handicap. Simple as that. You don't need to know anymore.

    The film is constructed and told in such a way that you are constantly put into the shoes of Leonard Shelby, beautifully played by Guy Pierce. Carrie-Ann Moss gives an equally mysterious and complex performance. This film is well-made all the way around--from the direction, to the editing, and especially the unique story that is rarely found in Hollywood these days. Four Stars!

    This review may have been a little dry on the details, but go see the movie--you'll be thanking me later.

    PS: Only go to the official website AFTER you've seen the movie. It too will give too much away. Afterwards, though, go and look at it--it's pretty impressive."

    There's nothing quite like teen lesbians

    How could I possibly have left that one off the list? Good call. Excellent film.

    I am a Johnny Depp fan but I still haven't seen this one.


    Ed Wood (1994) Johnny Depp, Bill Murray

    Weird quirky movie where Depp wears pink angora sweaters.

    Until I saw The Libertine, I had NO idea just how dark and self entrenched Depp could be. Truly one of the 10 best actors alive IMO.
