Official Rare/Obcure/Underrated/NON-Mainstream Film thread.
Any genre, any year, just don't list things that are mentioned constantly on Boxden/IMDB/RottenTomatoes/Fixr/Filmsite etc. I am getting tired of seeing the same old and need something different.
Here is a start:
[code]A man entranced by his dreams and imagination is lovestruck with a French woman and feels he can show her his world.[/code]
[code]The wife of an oafish restaurant owner becomes bored with her husband and considers an affair with a regular patron.[/code]
[code]A man wanders out of the desert not knowing who he is. His brother finds him, and helps to pull his memory back of the life he led before he walked out on his wife and son four years before.[/code]
[code]The story of a mistreated donkey and the people around him. A study on saintliness and a sister piece to Bresson's Mouchette.[/code]
[code]Takes place in a chateau, an ambiguous story of a man and a woman who may or may not have met last year at Marienbad.[/code]
[code]A strange visitor in a wealthy family. He seduces the maid, the son, the mother, the daughter and finally the father[/code]
[code]A Harvard scientist conducts experiments on himself with a hallucinatory drug and an isolation chamber that may be causing him to regress[/code]
