    Hoping this hasn't been mentioned yet, I give you the best softcore remake of a German Expressionist film ever made: Dr. Caligari 1989:

    film
    "Auf Wiedersehen: 'Til We Meet Again"

    My triple threat cousin has made a documentary about my aunt and my mom's escape from the Nazis and how my grandparents survived. I'll find out if I know the full story Tuesday night. It promises to be weird.

    Linda's son Ronnie, the running boy above, is a great kid. His first day at Kindergarten was 9/11/2001. Would have been.

    @ CarlGlover: Yepp Kontroll (2003, Nimród Antal) was well worth watching.
    Here's a trailer for the rest of you:

    to kako... or EVIL.. in greek.
    a zombie film, but instead of it being a flesh hungry swarm of undead... instead, its a nameless ancient evil infecting people.. thanks to three subway workers who get infected... the evil is transmitted in bites, and is INSTANTANEOUS!!!

    the final scene is revelatory for a film of this budget, and the scene in the cafe with the soldier had my crying for an hour...

    So yeh, TO KAKO, EVIL... its ace.

    I contributed to this thread forever ago so hopefully I haven't already mentioned this, but if I anyone can manage to come across a little Japanese indie film called "Tokyo Sora," please watch it. It's nice. And that's all I can really ask for when it comes to indie stuff these days. Here's a trailer.

    Christoffer Boe's Allegro

    Which is about a pianist, whose past is kidnapped and placed in the "zone" in Copenhagen, Denmark. Like a love story under influence of Tarkovsky's Stalker and Solaris.

    @ Draug -- I saw KONTROLL years ago and found it wonderfully flashy and awesome.

    George and Mike Kuchar are wonderful S.F. Bay Area underground filmmaking legends, inspiring the likes of John Waters and Guy Maddin. If you've never heard of them, the documentary IT CAME FROM KUCHAR will bring you up to speed:



    Yes, the Kuchars' films don't approach Hollywood-level slickness...but that's not the point.

    Not terribly unknown, but anyone seen Schizopolis?
  2.  (6739.12)
    I had never heard of 'Idiocraty' it slipped me by somehow and was surprised when I found it.

    A person is cryogenically frozen for 500 years and wakes up to find humankind has deevolved into morons who speak a hybird of valley girl, hillybilly and urban slang.

    Directed by the person who made Office Space. The film isn't nearly as good as it could be considering its awesome premise but it was still a pleasant surprise seeing as I thought i'd already seen every future-themed film around.

    Mr. Nobody (2009), directed by Jaco Van Dormael, with Jared Leto and Diane Kruger.





    Taxandria (1994), directed by Raoul Servais.

    @oldhat YES! Schizopolis is arguably my favorite Soderbergh film, bolstered by the fact that he not only stars, but also plays a dual role. Thanks for mentioning this. Just might get me to break out the DVD this weekend.

    I just found "Idiocracy" myself. It's wildly uneven, but has a couple scenes that had me rolling on the floor - "But It's got what plants crave!" "It's got electrolytes!"

    Two things come to mind, actually.

    Survive Style 5+. It's sort of like a Japanese 'Snatch'. Fun to watch...



    And 'My Name is Nobody'. If you liked 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly', this is your ball of wax...

    Caught this randomly on Netflix Instant, and it was pretty good. Documentary about the Doors featuring a lot of archival footage: When You're Strange

    oldhat - I LOVE Schizopolis. In fact, one night I saw Soderberg having dinner at one of my local haunts, and when he passed by our table, i told him how much I loved the film. He said something to the effect of "Oh, so you're the one!" and thanked me.

    Stumbled across my old film of this earlier:

    Funny Bones

    Possibly Lee Evan's best ever role and easily one of the best and darkest British comedies made in the 90s, it reveals the pathological inherent in everything great, liminal or sublime.

    [I deleted my post because the video site I found a better Funny Bones clip on was weird and its embed code LIED.]
