    The Big Hit

    Mark Wahlburg and Lou Diamond Philips star in this comedy/action about a kidnapping that goes wrong. I found it really funny but nobody has met has ever seen or heard of it. Its got a pretty good cast and apparently topped the charts on release.

    In Bruges
    Orange County

    Which is weird, because I wouldn't say either are particularly non-mainstream or anything, it just seems that very few people I meet have seen them. In Bruges in particular is one of my favourite, favourite films.

    I know! such a weird cult movie, shame it bombed in the cinema, would've been really cool to see a sequel or a reboot or something

    Spielberg's Duel.

    Film buffs will know it, but amongst the general public its quite often unknown or ignored.

    Brilliant film, if not quite "unheard of"...

    A Tale Of Two Sisters

    Tried to get a couple of friends to watch it but they didn“t get it, even after I explained the movie to them. We are no longer friends.

    Brick was great, came out around the same as another Joseph Gordon-Lovett film you could put on the list, Mysterious Skin. Not sure I can claim to "love" that one though.

    Anything but a prequel. That'd be shit.

    You meet a lot of children don't you?

    Give yourself £5 or ½ gig, you're worth it.

    The Quiet Earth

    High concept is "A man wakes up to find himself alone in the world".

    Saw it when I was a young teenager and, for some reason, it's stayed with me ever since.

    I fell asleep watching that in a picturehouse cinema. So I've only seen half of it.

    its a classic. One of those 70's films with that 'edge' that is ahrd to define. Atmospheric tension.

    Awesome movie. Its feels a bit influenced by Once Upon a Time in the West? (for the atmosphere)

    99 problems and being ginger is one

    Nobody I meet (IRL) has heard of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang for some reason, it's a shame because it's a very good film.

    Portable view - Never forget.

    Living in Oblivion is definitely one. Great indie flick with Steve Buscemi. Really funny.
