The Best Movies You May Not Have Seen:
Wings Of Desire
The original, and infinitely more powerful German film that Hollywood's "City Of Angels" was based on.
Until The End Of The World
As unique and quirky as all of Wim Wender's films... but with William Hurt adding to this inspirational and truly original film's appeal.
An intelligent and deliciously stylized science fiction drama starring Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman.
Baraka is a Sufi word that means "the breath of life". This stunning audio and visual montage lives up to it's name with scenes that will make you laugh, cry, and take your breath away.
The Tango Lesson
Incredibly well directed, passionate, and autobiographical account of filmmaker Sally Potter's love affair with one of the greatest tango dancers in the world. Stunning choreography.
Exquisite musical documentary revealing the height, flight and plight of today's real gypsy culture.
The Buena Vista Social Club
Another musical documentary showing how Ry Cooder reunited the greatest musicians cuba's ever known resulting in a Grammy Award winning album.
You'll never see a bug the same way again.
Rosencranz and Gildensturn Are Dead
Absolutely hilarious film adaptation of a Shakespeare farce written for the stage by Tom Stoppard. (most renowned for having penned the script for Shakespeare in Love) Featuring Tim Roth, Richard Dreyfus, and Gary Oldman.
La Femme Nikita
The foreign film that made Luc Besson famous. (Fifth Element, The Professional, The Big Blue) Original film that hollywood's "The Long Kiss Goodnight" was based upon.
Redefined what an action film could be with a quirky un-politically correct lolita romance thrown into the mix.
Life Is Beautiful
Hilarious, touching, and poignant film. Do not get the dubbed version, only with the subtitled version can fully appreciate why Roberto Benigni won an Oscar for his comedic performance in this outstanding Italian film.
David Lynch meets Vanilla Sky with a dash of Edward Scissorhands. Bizarre, dark, yet nonetheless very entertaining for those that enjoy a mind twister.
Sundance award winning comedy with mystical overtones about life on (and off) the reservation. First major film written, and directed by a Native American.
WILDLY psychedelic animated film that explores the philosophical edge of Life, The Universe, and Everything.
Forget Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal, and Red Dragon... this is the Michael Mann film that started it all. Red Dragon is just the new hollywood remake of this original film adaptation of Thomas Harris' book.
The Critically Acclaimed Films Which, In My Opinion, More Than Deserved The Awards And Accolades Received:
Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon
As Good As It Gets
The Lord Of The Rings
Other miscelaneous favorites that I just don't have the time to write about at the moment:
The Milagro Beanfield War
Like Water For Chocolate
Brother Sun Sister Moon
Brotherhood of the Wolf
Man in the Moon
Dream With The Fishes
The Big Lebowski
Henry and June
