Favorite lesser known films
Ok, let's do 1 movie per post to keep it clean and organized.
Preferably with an IMDb link. We will count 1 - 10. You can post 1 movie within this 10, then you can post 1 in the next round.

I don't like reading through long lists....I just end up glazing over them, and not checking them out.

1. Factotum - Factotum (2005) - IMDb

I'm having a little trouble figuring out what an independent film is. No major studios involved I guess, but how do I know this? Low budget? That tag sounds a little stupid to me; there are no independent films but some have a peculiar personality behind.

Your right. This is stupid.
I forgot how literal everybody is here.
Just let this thread die......
My mistake.

"A League of Ordinary Gentlemen" -- i took my son to see it at in NYC -- probably in the late 1990's -- a great movie about guys and their professional bowling leagues.

"Life and Times of Hank Greenberg" -- this qualifies as independent it was produced by Ciesla Foundation -- about the great Detroit baseball player. I really enjoyed it.

Well, a little mistake, yes, but forgive my rudeness. This thread was doomed anyways, just read the selections on the the Best Movie thread. People don't even know what a good movie is, let alone if it's 'independent' or not. :D OK, there's jackinnj and there's me and ......there must be somebody else...haha.... sorry for the jokes....

I still refuse to name a film 'independent' but check out some wild spirit like Sam Peckinpah and such. I suppose guys with a strong personality make independent films. That sounds right to me. Can't think about a particular one at the moment.... but there's always tomorrow.

I just wanted a way for people to experience films they may not have seen before.
so, if you have a film in mind that isn't so popular, just suggest it and please provide a link so people can just click on it.
I know there is a greatest films ever made thread but, who's going to sift through all that malarkey?
so, 1 film...1 link.....easy.

OK, most people don't know the Lone Wolf and Cub series. Can't say it's a favorite but enjoyable and different.
