    Le Samouraï (1967) Dir: Jean-Pierre Melville
    I don't know how many of you will have seen this, but none of my friends had even heard of it. It's brilliant.

    Terribly Happy (2008) Dir: Henrik Ruben Genz

    Caught this at the local art house theatre in Boston this weekend, it's awesome little Danish film noir. Very dry black comedy with shades of the Coen Brothers thrown in. Highly recommend.

    "Starring Crispin Glover and Howard Hesseman." Dear Lord, no further description needed. I'm off to the video shop.

    @GroundXero

    Wow! you just dislodged a chunk of long unaccessed memory with "Hell Comes To Frogtown." I saw that movie while out of my mind on speed and acid in the late eighties and until now I had NO recollection that it existed. Nice one!

    Heck - this is a favorite Guilty Pleasure - even more so than "Hudson Hawk" ...

    Here's my own guilty pleasure, a lost gem from the early 90's: FREAKED.

    @ emonster: Have you seen Top of the Food Chain? Haven't gotten around to it myself but it's on the list so to speak.

    @ LampCommander

    Freaked! Awesome. Bought the double DVD edition, so badass, beyond words. My favorite Keanu Reeves character of all time, mainly because you can't tell its him!

    "... styrofoam cup...", Mr. T in drag, Rastafarian Eyeballs with Uzi's, so many cameos I can't list them all, and one of the best unreleased soundtracks of the 90's. One of my top 10 favorite cult films. Nice one.

    Draug, yeah, Top of the Food Chain is pretty good. Not great, but worth seeing.
    I just watched Possession with Sam Neill and Isabelle Adjani. That was really good and messed up.
    "Sam Neill and Isabelle Adjani star in this terrifying and twisty story of adultery. Returning home from a business trip, Mark (Neill) becomes suspicious that his wife, Anna (Adjani) has not been faithful during his absence. As he begins to investigate her increasingly strange behaviour, he is shocked to discover that a more powerful and sinister force is affecting his wife's sanity."

    Return of the Musketeers (1989). Kim Catrell's best movie EVER. This is the third in the Musketeer Films series, 15 years after the last, with all the surviving players back for one more romp.

    BTW, Hudson Hawk---adore! I heard it got critically panned, then saw it for myself, and laughed for one and a half hours. I count myself blessed that I am one of the people it was made for.

    BTW, I am seeing everything on this list via the power of mailed movie service. *thumbsup*

    Edit: Except Chambara (Samurai movies) and Seinen (All Yakuza psycho sexual adult made for men movies)--seem almost all of them already.

    @Walks-The-Murder-Dub Return is a great film, though I'm partial to Kim in "Split Second" ...

    if you've not seen it then i recommend utterly insane russian sci-fi movie Kin Dza Dza.

    to the best of my knowledge it's never been released in the west. the torrent is pretty easy to find but it streams in it's entirety at google video with english subs.
