Actually after I posted this I looked and there it was, a review for the going to be released DVD.

It used to be very OOP on VHS. I watched this for a class and thought it was incredible. I would have loved to have seen the original play.

Fall A fantasy romance (A supermodel falls in love with a cabbie) that ends like real-life. This one needs to come to dvd. And the lead chick- YOWZA.

That about sums it up for me.

Mention "Donnie Darko" or "The Wicker Man", and watch their faces make that "what the hell are you talking about" expression.

you know this thread reminds me of how many movies i have recommended to friends based on their tastes and they completely shrug me off. then a few months later out of the blue they somehow see it and either totally forget that i told them they must see it a few months ago or wonder why i didn't force then to watch it.

The Blood of Heroes

I wish this movie would come out on DVD someday. I've never meet anyone who has seen this movie. I love this flick. It's one of my favorites for some strange reason.

I love that movie. Good to see I'm not the only one who enjoys it. "Dont run, walk"


Naked Lunch Is another one where people question your sanity when you try to describe it to them.

Good call on Queen of Hearts. That's a great one.

Lots of faves, but the one most people haven't seen or heard of is The Dresser.

The Dresser-
Was that Tom Courtenoy and Albert Finney?
Haven't seen the whole film, just parts and the acting was great in the parts I did see!

I asked for George Washington and The Bicycle Thief for Christmas. Neither my friends nor my family had a clue what they were. "What are these movies about???" A question that is always hard for me to answer.

wow, hadn't heard this movie mentioned in a long time, since I originally saw this in the theatre in 1983. I don't know if this answers your question or not, but, both Tom C. and Albert F. are in the movie.

Get Crazy - The single funniest comedy that no one's ever heard of. Should be a cult classic but instead is just forgotten. Malcolm McDowell, Daniel Stern, Ed Begley Jr., Bill Henderson, Lou Reed, etc. From Alan Arkush (Rock and Roll High School).

One of the many quotable lines:

"Now pardon me while I go an bask in my own genius."

I believe it had a limited VHS release years and years ago, so you might find it in a loing established video store.

This is exactly what I was just thinking! I have one friend who I am always recommending films to and he just kind of blows me off, then a couple of months later he will catch the movie on cable and say "just saw this awesome movie last night..." I want to strangle him when he does that!

Like most of the people in this post my friends think I am strange because they have never even heard of half the movies in my collection. (Then again one of my friends has never even seen a Star Wars movie or a Rocky film!) However I am usually the guy who gets called whenever there is an arguement about movie trivia. So I guess all this useless knowledge isn't totally useless.
