I don't know about independent, but I suspect that most aussie films would be close.

Thanx for keeping it organized Tony
And I will check that one out for sure.
I wanted to start this thread because I feel that I've seen every darn movie, so I want to find new ones.

Well I want to agree in a serious non-trouble making way. There are so many films financed by majors where the director was essentially independent even ran amok. Funny coincidence I was about to post on the topic but noticed this post, Cassiel we are on the same wavelength, how about "Bring me the Head of Alfredo Garcia". Monte Hellman's "Two Lane Black Top" comes to mind too.

"Factotum" IIRC was released by Canal+ not exactly independent, they do carry some otherwise untouchable films.

If you want independent in the extreme try "Thundercrack!" two or three prints in film festivals only (there are hundreds of these). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thundercrack! I only mention this one because I knew the directors cousin and sister.

I recently re-watched "An inconvenient true" and is for me the best, as I like documentary and strongly dislike normal movies. I also watched "The Three Stooges", but it is impossible not to compare it with the originals (Moe, Larry, Curly and Shemp (I put aside Joe as he was the worse of them)), and believe the argument is poorer and far from these old shorts.

Niek niek niek...

"Kill the Irishman" was released last year and grossed less than $2mm -- the somewhat true and grizzly story of Danny Greene -- a Cleveland dock-worker turned gangster who got in trouble with the NY mob -- one of my sisters said that he may have been a student in the school where my aunt taught (St. Jerome).

In a bit of ethnic rivalry, Greene car bombs Shondor Birns -- right near my high school.

Regrettably, the movie was filmed in Detroit.

"The Baker" (US: 'Assassin in Love') is a wonderfully dry comedy with the star of "Life" (a great TV series, if you missed it) and an excellent, zany, supporting cast, set in a charming Welsh village.
