Man, I love movies. Everything from the cinematography to the writing, the acting, directing and everything in between. I’ve seen those movies we all know and love, such as the Lord of the Rings trilogy, the Godfather or 12 Angry Men. However, sometimes I’ll enjoy a movie and find myself surprised I hadn’t heard of it before. Here is a list of some of those movies.
A prophet (un prophete)
Infernal Affairs – The basis for The Departed
The Disappearance of Alice Creed – A single room movie
Tucker And Dale vs Evil
The Bothersome Man (Den brysomme mannen)
Kontroll – A dark comedy/Hungarian movie
The Man from Earth – A single room movie.
Serenity – Pffft. Nerd. How’d this get in here.
A Scanner Darkly
Supertroopers – So good I backed the sequel
Stalker <= This was added before the Reddits wouldn’t shut up about it. Perhaps I should remove it.
22 bullets (L’immortel)
Cube – Another one room movie
How to Make Money Selling Drugs – I found this highly entertaining (har har)
Avalon – A dark dystopian cyberpunk future
Barry Lyndon – A Stanley Kubrick flick
Black Dynamite – Hilarious mockery of black exploitation films
Bullitt – A classic. Best chase scene in a movie
Withnail & I
Sleepless Night (Nuit Blanche)
The list above will likely grow, as I remember movies and see new ones.
The Grand Budapest Hotel
Europa Report – Fun style of story telling
The Great Beauty – La Grande Bellezza – Art house movie
Citizen Ruth – A mid nineties _comedy_ around the abortion debate
Sorcerer – Suspense
Scenic Route – This scratched the ‘one room’ movie itch for me, even thought it’s not strictly so.
Coherence – Another ‘one room’ movie. A very cool thriller that is a mind-fuck.
The Mist – I’ve probably watched this movie twice now. Go in not knowing anything about it. I loved the ending, but can’t say more without spoilers.
Locke – There is only one actor that appears in this movie, Tom Hardy. It’s a wonderful if not heart breaking story.
