ITT: lesser known films but god tier
This movie is fucking fantastic. The third act is a little bit confusing, but oh well.
It's okay, not a 10, watch better movies
Watch danger diabolik, you will not regret it
Zardoz is surprisingly good. The trailer makes it look like the corniest piece of trash, but damn. That movie is actually good.
Yup, it's in the image name.
It gets kinda... odd, dates itself with all the trippan balls.
Not exactly obscure.
Another Eisenstein's favorite is Battleship Potemkin
As if somebody posted paths of glory, I always post it in these threads, also pretty much my favorite movie. Colonel Dax is one of the best characters ever
I just love it, never seen a movie like it, perhaps you don't "get" it, perhaps not
downloaded this on demonoid because i was bored and had nothing to watch
charmed the pants off me
That was the movie for the last episode of MST3K!
My vote is for The Abominable Doctor Phibes.
Hey, it's a British black comedy with Vincent Price.
man rapes dying african tribes woman
seriously good watch
You have bad taste, watch some real trill OG shit like the great silence
My favourite Eiesenstein is Alexander Nevsky.
the sfx are quite amazing
great if you're looking for a gorefest
Huh... that's very disappointing indeed.
I still don't know what to think about that movie. It's visually stunning, but also really really weird. Maybe I just don't get it.
It's hard to find a version my shitty gpu can handle it got all glitch for me I wouldn't call if a gorefest it's like a Lloyd Kaufman Tokyo gore police ichi style gore more for humor in my opinion
The Tingler (1959)
Vincent Price again, and according to Wikipedia, has the first depicted use of LSD in a movie.
I mostly like it for it's visual design.
Nevsky is brilliant, the battle on ice is one of the greatest war scenes put to film.
Pic related is my favourite film of all time though.
All of these choices are legit.
Expand your knowledge of cinema with every criterion collection film...
my fucking nigga
how about this one
Hmm... when I think about it... he has actually played quite a lot of dramatic roles. But most of them were in independent movies. That's probably why the public doesn't really care, which is of course a shame.
Y Tu Mama Tambien
The Skin I Live In
In The Valley of Elah
And Soon The Darkness
The Edge of Heaven
...are all pretty good. Some might not be underrated as such, maybe just lesser known
>Not sure if this counts but I fucking loved this movie
>The Truman Show (1998)
Uwe Boll finally comes good.
I like me some Madchester musik
No it doesn't count, but it's still very good.
I wonder if the original Oldboy doesn't count as well. Nowadays, everybody knows about that movie. But whatevs. It's pretty damn fucking good, so who cares?
I really really liked Postal, but it was very self deprecating and I saw dave foley's penis. It's hard to be objective.
I'm having trouble thinking of stuff and my library is offline.
Your welcome Anon.
>>570563043 This anon has the right idea and I'm glad they brought up "Cache".
I think that /b/ would really like Michael Haneke.
You should start with:
1. The Piano Teacher
2. Time of the Wolf
3. Funny Games (german or US)
5. The White Ribbon
For a director thats trademarks include: short outbursts of violence and psychotic, violent youths... it should be right up all your alleys.
Be patient and sit through one and you'll likely be blown away.
I usually stay far from Asian cinema, not my thing, but wow was this amazing
1. Kagadanan sa Banwaan Ning mga Engkanto (2007, Diaz)
2. 牯嶺街少年殺人事件 (1991, Yang)
3. Charulata (1964, Ray)
4. Trzecia czesc nocy (1971, Zulawski)
5. ลุงบุญมีระลึกชาติ (2010, Weerasethakul)
6. The Baby of Mâcon (1993, Greenaway)
7. Sei Donne per L'assassino (1964, Bava)
8. Сталкер (1979, Tarkovsky)
9. Nattvardsgästerna (1962, Bergman)
10. Reminiscences of a Journey to Lithuania (1971, Mekas)
I totally agree.
Have you seen any of his others?
Can't wait for flashmob. May be going to Berlin Film Festival in February.
Quivering at the chance to meet Haneke.
8 and 9 are pretty great though... always loved that copy pasta.
Classic Dano, I actually have a couple of friends who have worked with Dano before and say he is bro/10
I also saw it around the time I was 16.
Loved it as well. I can say I didn't get beyond a broad "duh technology bad" message the first time.
I ended up taking a writing course in college and did it for our "film analysis" paper.
I probably still have all the photocopied academic essays about it that I stole ideas from.
Still one of my favorite movies. One of these days I'm gonna go to an anime con as one of the dudes... just twist up and crumple some tinfoil all over my body and shit.
People will be all like "Hey man, nice Akira costume!"
I loved the shit out of La Antena! The premise is very cool (there is a reason why silent movies are silent) and the visuals are also quite amazing.

Remove Kebabs. Remove them all!
This one's pretty underground most of you probably haven't heard of it.
David Lynch is a hack and this film is one of the best examples of it.
Next to no context clues, unnecessarily long-winded with a disappointing finale, it's incredibly pretentious with it's implied narrative and tasteless in it's way of exploiting the deformation imagery.
Lynch even had to explain certain parts of the film because he failed so spectacularly to give context throughout the film, it's an awful film by an awful director/writer.
The only project Lynch did well on was Twin Peaks and this is largely to the credit of Mark Frost keeping Lynch on a short leash with his imagery.
A sort of positive case can be made for Mulholland Drive too, but this post is long enough as it is.
If you want an experimental film that won't leave a bad taste in your mouth I suggest Koyaanisqatsi by Godfrey Reggio.
I'm not the guy you were replying to but how is Eraserhead lesser known film? It's probably among Lynch's top 3 most seen films and definitely the most famous arthouse film. Even plebs have heard of this film and most of them seen it.
Just because something is in CC doesn't mean it's lesser known. They released also some Bay movies, The Silence of the Lambs, 12 Angry Men, etc.
Dr.Joseph Goebbels masterpiece Titanic (1943)
well my understanding was that the guy i was replying to was suggesting that criterion movies are automatically well known, which we both know is clearly not the case
i've seen the two i've mentioned and amour
I don't think that I really understand "Begotten". But it's been quite a while since I last saw it.
Great movie. Shed some manly tears.

Peter Weller [X]
Phillip K. Dick adaptation [X]
Find it and Watch it.. or are you a pussy faggot?
I thought Jah Jah Binks was a very misunderstood character. His back story could have been further developed.
'Enter the Void' is a great movie.
Also, 'Irreversible' by the same screenwriter.
Gaspar Noe is a very talented director. His movies are kinda' trippy though. I recommend watching them not completely sober and with an open mind.
He tried to make a movie about the role of unwanted and unprepared fatherhood.
He fucking failed.
Simple as that.
You have shit taste and deflecting criticism with regurgitated "you don't get it" arguments doesn't make the film any less incompetent.
Like I said, Lynch has made watchable stuff like Twin Peaks and Mulholland Drive, because clearly Lynch is better at suspense than he is at portrayal.
This film was granted a screening permit after being presented to the Board of Censors as the dream of a madman. Opening at Studio 28 in Paris in October 1930, word spread about the film's bizarre content. On the evening of 3 December 1930, the fascist League of Patriots and other groups began (halfway through the film) to throw purple ink at the screen, then rushed out into the lobby of the theater, slashing paintings by Yves Tanguy, Salvador Dalí, Joan Miró, and Man Ray. The producers of the film, Le Vicomte de Noailles and Marie-Laure de Noailles, soon withdrew the film from circulation. The (legal) US premiere of subtitled prints of this film took place 1-15 November 1979 at the Roxie Cinema, San Francisco.
If you have ever been in a "god tier movie thread" before you know it's full of fedoracore crap.
after browsing /b/ since 1997, this is one of the best film threads i've seen. (suggestion wise)
Journey to the West (2013).
Fucking amazing and genuinely funny. The closest we'll ever get to a decent Dragon Ball movie.
far from god tier, but still very good
Wow some really good taste here, I love movies and I'd recommend Songs from the Second Floor.
Swedish film, it's like a mix of Bergman and Dreyer but silly and hilarious like Monty Python, favourite film I've seen recently
Fuck this pretentious terrible movie and anyone who likes it. I suffered through this at school and wanted to fucking carve my eyes out with a spoon the entire time, or just eat that fucking half abortion at the end just to shut it up.
What's pretentious about it? I think David Lynch's main aim is to make something weird but aesthetic, other people take it more seriously than they should. Inland Empire is a great film
>implying Mads isn't a shit tier tumblr fandom and that you don't deserve to die of cancer
The 9th Company is a good film about Russian soldiers during the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.
The director did a much better job at showing the life of a soldier than most American war films.
Surely this is Lynch's greatest work?
I'm a huge Thomas Harris fan and loved the movies. Mads did an awesome job of portraying the character from the books. Hopkins did a great job scaring the shit out of people, but Mads was much closer to the actual character.
Probably one of the funniest movies I've seen, just not very known (at least not today).
Yeah, read the books. As usual, books were much better than the movies. But not for the usual reasons. There is so much depth to the personality of Hannibal that the movies don't even scratch. They portray him as this vague and mysterious character, but the books flesh out his thoughts, his personality, the reasons that he does what he does. If anyone loves teh movies or series, the books replace nothing and add so much.
I had no idea dumblr had a Hannibal fandom. To each their own, I guess.
Ran -Akira Kurosawa
Do you want actual good movies or just hipster white boy bullshit movies?
Aussie guy gets kidnapped and sexually (ab)used by three masked women.
kidnapper woman: some men would pay for experience
There's no need to be like that, I like plenty of international movies but white first world people relate more to and have easier access to white first world films. I haven't given Kurosawa enough attention
Some..but it's kinda arty rather than hardcore
you are the first person i have interacted with in any way that have seen that movie before i mention it! :P
And it is so weird that I wonder why its not mentioned more often on /b/
One for the junkies out there, Heath Ledger and gf slowly descend into a shitstorm of too many heroins, anyone else even seen this?
The Day After.
One of the best post apoc movies. Follows the lives of a few different people before, during and after a nuclear strike on America.
No happy ending.
Where can I download these not so popular movies from? Are the torrent sites dedicated to rare movies? My Internet is shit thepiratebay seems to cater to hollyshit blockbusters. I don't find much trackers on torrentz.eu either.
Maybe a mega.co link too just any type that would support 'resume download' but a torrent site with enough seeders will be best.
A neat film about Columbine, follows different characters throughout the day, documentary style filming techniques so it really involves you and shocks you when the shooting starts
My apologies. I understand it's easier to identify with similar circumstance.
are some of the best filmmakers you can pick and choose from there.
If you have hulu plus they have a lot of the Criterion collection on there.
M - Fritz Lang
The Lunchbox (Dabba)
Jodorowskys new film The Dance of Reality was one of the best this year.
First watched it while withdrawing, just from kratom but the withdrawal scene was spot on. Scenes in the pool every time they shoot up were great too. Great mental breakdown as well
If anyone can watch Hitchcock and appreciate it's subtext and hidden imagery, then they are watching movies on a different level than most people. Learning to watch him teaches you how to watch movies and will make most modern explosion era shit unenjoyable.
I wasn't sure, I haven't seen it in a while. I was certain there was some important connection to the Soviets with that fat bastard.
We see eye-to-eye on everything, I'd add:
Then more mainstream but still great
Paul Thomas Anderson
Watched this film 'Songs from the Second Floor' by Roy Andersson you might like, I'd call it a Scandanavian Art Comedy
My new favorite Xmas movie.
I'll bite. Lebanon and Waltz With Bashir. Both films feel like bookends for each other, both dealing with the 1982 Lebanon/Israeli conflict, which I had no prior knowledge about and still was throughly intrigued by how good they were, especially Waltz being an animated doc about the people involved in this war. Did feel uneasy at times watching war atrocities being depicted in animation, knowing that they actually happened.
Dude I'm not saying that at all, just that none of my friends who are into films had even heard of it, I wouldn't be proud to have seen something others haven't as i like talking about them
How comes hasn't any weaboo mentionned this one yet?
WHILE WE4RE TALKING MOVIES :
I'm looking for one that takes set in New York suburbs, is about cops (more or less dirty, more or less law abiding). It's pretty gloomy and darkish, with lots of night scenes under the rain. It's about brothers or some stuff. One is living in a shit house, that has mold and his missus is getting sick. It ends badly...
It isn't Story of the Five Burroughs, nor Brooklyn's Finest. But the title has, as far as my memory goes, something like neighbour, brooklyn or queen's related in it.
imdb helped shit
Any ideas freindz?
August Underground (2001)
The only reason this is known by anyone is because it got a bad rep from critics for being about serial killers.
Honestly a good watch and apart from some low-budget gore in places, kind of believable.
>favorite Xmas movie
do you like to be depressed beyond belief on christmas?
also i agree, fucking awesome movie. honestly it's almost flawlessly executed. made me fall in love with clive owen.
>Paul Thomas Anderson
some of my fav modern directors.
I'm going to check out Songs from the Second Floor
see when i saw this movie i had no idea what it was about and no expectations going in. i though it was among th most boring movies i'd ever seen with an ending that comes out of nowhere. To me that first viewing experiance has colored this movie permenantly
Aronofsky did this film I hadn't heard of called Pi, black and white and experimental.
You can lose hope when you see the shit films that are in the cinemas, but there's still good films out there and they can really take your breath away
Special (2006 film)
About a guy who takes experimental meds and
thinks he has superpowers
Starts out funny.
Ends up with some seriously unfunny feels
I think it might be because the idea was that we all know the basic story so he made it about the less exciting bits and kinda teased us with the shooting. You probably didn't get all the tension building, must've just seemed like a boring high-school drama
Eraserhead is the movie Stanley Kubrick said he wished he'd made, his favorite film according to Lynch when they met.
I saw it at the midnight movies about six times at the Roxie in San Francisco when it was still in theaters. One time, a member of the audience said, "There will be a quiz after the movie," as the credits rolled at the end. LOL
The cinematography is beautiful, and can only really be appreciated in a theater. I am glad I got to see it there a few times.
Like most horror movies, the plot makes no sense if you really think about it. That said, it's one of the few recent horror movies that's creeped me out. Of course, the star of the movie is the Danvers Asylum.
This. Tears and Laughs.
It's a story of hope amid hopelessness. I think that's why I like it.
Made me really appreciate the talents of the director Alfonso Cuarón; those incredibly long takes, immersive camera work makes you feel like you are there.
He directed "Gravity" most recently. Intense in 3D. Same feel.
It does has a hopeful but sad ending. It makes you wish it kept going while the credits rolled just so you can see what happens.
I always playfully imagined that giant ship being the Aperture Laboratories ship and the worse was yet to come.
"Gravity" needed a lesson in physics, so much wrong in that respect, but had me on the edge of my seat the whole time, nonetheless. In 3D, I got acrophobia from this one.
gravity was good. if they had paid attention to the deatials of physics and science it would have been so much better because you could think "wow, what if..." but once you see some of the early silliness, there is no more chance for what if, it's ruined and you're just watching to see what happens.
