What's your verdict? I ask because I laughed my head off!


An excellent biopic with great performances all around! James Franco was brilliant as Tommy Wiseau (the man who wrote and directed The Room; the cult movie now considered one of the worst movies of all time) as was his brother Dave Franco as Greg Sestero, the actor who wrote the memoir that The Disaster Artist was based off.

"Vampyr" is definitely obscure.

"Even Dwarves Started Small"


Hmm. I've seen all four. Withnail certainly doesn't count as obscure in Britain, neither does Performance.

Even dwarves started small .... Yeah, maybe. Even Herzog fans tend to skip that one...

Very good! Great chemistry between Wilem Dafoe (who breaks wind a lot lol) and Robert Pattinson.

I'm looking forward to that one - it'll be in cinemas here in a few weeks.
... But.... Obscure? I mean... It's scheduled to be shown in two out of the four cinemas in my town. ...

So here's an obscure one I wathed recently:
Koji Wakamatsu's United Red Army.
It was great! Also long, boring and confusing.
But if you want to see the former propaganda-filmmaker for the japanese red army faction deal with the topic 40 years later, that's the film to watch.
Except, he says for him, it was less of a coming to terms with the absurd fanaticism the members of this terrorist group displayed, but as a document for posterity about what he thinks his generation did wrong, and for future generations to analyze and learn from.

Do movies featured on Mystery Science Theater 3000 count? The last one I watched was either The Pumaman or Space Mutiny. Given the cult classic nature of MST3K, though, I doubt it counts.

Seven Samurai definitely doesn't count, given how highly regarded Akira Kurosawa's work is among cinephiles.

Breaking Away! 70's coming of age story revolving around cycling. Has a young Dennis Quaid as a supporting character. My parents love this movie, and it is in my 2012 copy of 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die.

List of 57 obscure movies - some of which were made in the 1920s - I had seen a couple of these movies. Has anybody seen any of these movies?

For someone who rarely watches movies, I have seen 5 of those listed:

The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and her Lover
The Spy who Came in from the Cold
War of the Roses
Nanook of the North
Reversal of Fortune

For those of you who do watch a lot of movies, I have been searching for the name of a movie I saw years ago: The setting is a station (ranch) in Australia. The characters are a man with chronic depression who feels terrible every day, his wife who gardens naked and tries to keep the family together, the tax man who shows up to collect back taxes they can't pay and ends up staying on never completing his job, and a daughter who pulls a quite surprising stunt. In the last scene, there is a ship in front of the family house in the outback and the man's depression evaporates.

Does anyone recognize this film?

War of the Roses and Nanook of the North are not really that obscure.

The Cook, the Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover was pretty popular in its time---though it was more of a "cult" film
