Basketball Diaries. I've never met a single person who has seen it and it's one of my favourites. Leonardo Dicaprio and Mark Wahlberg.

Like Crazy, pre Jennifer Lawrence being famous. Low budget and the cast had to make up 50% of the script.

Daydream nation. Stumbled across the trailer randomly on YouTube, decided to watch it. Really odd but turned out quite good.

I saw a film on TV years ago called 'The Token King' and absolutely loved it (it probably wasn't very good but I loved it at the time!). I don't think I've ever met anyone else that's seen it.

Frances Ha. My favourite film.

Don't go to sleep.
It was a horror movie.
This family had 3 children 2 girls and a boy. The eldest girl think her name was Jennifer was the apple of her parents eye and especially her grAndma.
Any way one night the family visits the grAbdmother and on the way home in the car the other 2 children tie Jennifer's shoe laces together unbeknow to her....
A few minutes later the family are involved in s terrifying crash. They get out but Jennifer is trapped and the car explodes. Killing Jennifer.
The younger girl then begins seeing the ghost of her sister, who brain washes her gets her on side and it becomes clear thT she is out for revenge.
It's s very good film. Surprised it didn't do better than it did

Seen basketball diaries too - thought it was fairly popular movie?

Empire records still one of my fav movies but seems to be a generational thing if you've seen it or not. That and clerks

Children of a Lesser God - loved it a teen

Tim - early Mel Gibson film

JaiOm Sun 21-Jun-15 16:51:27

'Skazana na Bluesa'

the first foreign language film without subtitles that I have managed.
Basically about a fucked up rockstar and his addiction to heroin and subsequent premature death.

I came across a film called, I think Alpha Male on TV one night and loved it.

Jennifer ehle was in it and I think the guy out of the office.

I haven't seen any of the films mentioned so far.

Tidelands anyone?

AlpacaPicnic Sun 21-Jun-15 16:57:22

Series 7 - The Contenders.
It's similar to (but older than) Battle Royale and Hunger Games in that it is about people who get picked to take part in a fight to the death thing, that gets broadcast as entertainment/a warning to others.
But whenever I mention in to others, nobody has ever heard of it...

Boy Meets Girl. The 1994 film.
Utterly horrific and irredeemable.
I do not recommend it to anyone.

yellowcurtains Sun 21-Jun-15 16:59:00

There was a really good one I saw, in chinese (prob mandarin) called ?Beijing Nights. It was about a band, going around China, and was very lo fi, but I remember loving it. No idea who was in it, or even what happened!

Welcome to the dollhouse. Bizarre

Bombon el perro. Stunning scenery

Spog Sun 21-Jun-15 17:01:25

KittyBennett Sun 21-Jun-15 17:01:49

Ps I've seen basketball diaries. It's quite well known

abigamarone Sun 21-Jun-15 17:02:18

'Freeway II: Confessions of a trick baby', it stars Vincent Gallo as a nun.

CalmItKermit Sun 21-Jun-15 17:02:39

I've seen Tim, Mel is very lovely in it.

Hikarumba Sun 21-Jun-15 17:02:54

Photographing Fairies, with Toby Stephens. My favourite film ever

gobbin Sun 21-Jun-15 17:03:06

I'll give you 'The Brig' and 'Not I', but then I was a drama student in the 80s and we saw some really weird stuff!

GiantGaspingSatanicCyst Sun 21-Jun-15 17:03:43

AlpacaPicnic Series 7 is fantastic! But yeah, have never met anyone else who's seen it.

Mine is possibly The Baby, sleazy 70s exploitation horror flick.
