REV: More Obscure Movies

It turns out that the Obscure Movie Meme is still a living, breathing beast. However, the post has a) disappeared way down the blog now, and b) has become frustratingly cumbersome to add to. So i'm going to start posting new additions here as i find them (including two new excellent posts today), with only minimal details, but links to the original posts for you to find out more.

Then, i am going to add all the new nominees to the printable document list i have compiled. So if you'd like that, just drop me a line at hurricane(a)hotmail and i'll zip it off to you.

So. first we have a fine set of additions from polymania. Be sure to check out the post there.

Here are his recommendations: Brazil, Donnie Darko, Live from Shiva's Dance Floor, Rabbit-Proof Fence, Roger Dodger, Stir of Echoes, Hable con Ella/Talk to Her, Unknown White Male, Waking Life, Whale Rider.

Then we have a fine long list from Bora Zivkovic at Science And Politics. Bora had seconded some earlier recommendations but came back and added a slew of his own. I agree completely with him that the best indication of a good movie is whether or not you'd watch it again. I use that as my own guideline when buying dvds -- will it be worth it in multiple watchings to do so.

Here are his recommendations: Kwaidan, Rashomon, Seven Samurai, Tampopo, Throne of Blood, Yojimbo, Aristocats, Fiddler on the Roof, Midnight Express, Hair, Seventh Seal, Ko to Tamo Peva/Who's Singing Over There, Spaceballs, (Susan and) Jeremy, Shane, Dom za vesanje/Time of the Gypsies, Wild Things, Good, Bad and Ugly, The Incredible Shrinking Man, Dark Star, Dr.Strangelove, Easy Rider, Mars Attacks, Charlotte's Web, Love Story, History of the World, Part I, Clash of the Titans, Two Mules for Sister Sara, Soylent Green, Deliverance, Sleeper, Underground, WR: Mysteries of Orga(ni)sm, Animal Farm, Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Sex But Were Afraid To Ask, Young Frankenstein, Serendipity, The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie, The Adventure of Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother.

There might be more coming, so i'll update this post and move it to the top as need arises.
