Thought I would Share a list of Fifty not so main stream movies that I have rated excellent in my Netflix account. In Alphabetical order, with year released. most of these left me feeling emotional dumbfounded or blown away, and a few were really funny. Some have subtitles a few are difficult to follow or swallow, but poignant all the same. Those in Bold are a little more Difficult to watch and require more artistic interpretation than the others.


  1. A Boy and His Dog 1975 The year is 2024, Scavenging for Food and sex with his telepathic dog Don Johnson plays Vic a young man in post apocalyptic world with his best friend Blood. Vic is lured below ground to impregnate a underground community of survivors who have lost their virility.
    Blood: Now let's run through the modern Presidents.
    Vic: What good's all this history crap gonna do me?
    Blood: Just do the Presidents.
    Vic: Oh, God!-Eisenhower, Truman...
    Blood: Truman, Eisenhower
    Vic: Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Kennedy, Kennedy, Kennedy...
  2. A Clockwork Orange 1971 Charismatic delinquent Alex DeLarge is jailed and volunteers for an experimental aversion therapy developed by the government in an effort to solve society's crime problem
    Goodness is something to be chosen. When a man cannot choose he ceases to be a man.
  3. Amelie 2001 Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain Amelie, an innocent and naive girl in Paris, with her own sense of justice, decides to help those around her and along the way, discovers love
  4. A Very Long Engagement 2004 Un long dimanche de fiançailles The story of a young woman's relentless search for her fiancé, who has disappeared from the trenches of the Somme during World War One.
  5. Basil 1998 A lonely young aristocrat in turn-of the century England stuggles to meet the approval of his over-bearing, class-conscious father while trying to please the selfish woman he loves.

His writing and homosexuality get him into trouble: he spends two years in prison, writing letters for other inmates and smuggling out a novel in a peculiar way by an early appearance of Johny Depp.
  7. Being There 1979 Chance, a simple gardener, has never left the estate until his employer dies. His simple TV-informed utterances are mistaken for profundity.
  8. Big Fish 2003 A son tries to learn more about his dying father by reliving stories and myths he told about his life.

  51. Come and See Idi i smotri Words can not describe the power this movie has on the human soul. It documents World War II thru the eyes of a young Russian boy in Byelorussia.This movie is a "must" for intelligent people. It's a rare gem, although very difficult to watch. Not many people outside Russia know what was going on in Byelorussia (now Belarus) during WWII. The Resistance (Partisans) was very strong, and because Germans were afraid to go into the woods to fight, they were killing everybody in the nearby villages.

I watched Searching for the Wrong Eyed Jesus. It was like I was transported back to some of my childhood.

Root...A Boy and his Dog at #1....and don't see Soylent Green.

I agree ABAHD is a must watch as well as Clockwork Orange, which is my favorite of all time.

Root...A Boy and his Dog at #1....
I assume it's in 'no particular order'.

Difficult criteria with 'not so mainstream'. But without thinking i'd have City Of God. Also Sin City. I'd probably also opt for Zardoz too, just for the dated weird atmosphere, and esoteric storyline. Speaking of which, i dare you all to watch Eraserhead, not just casually, but with intent, that film just snicklefritzs with your head.


Pan's Labyrinth
is a good choice, and Gummo, amongst others.

How about -- Fear And Loathing in Las Vegas, Troll Hunter, Kick-Ass, Dead Man, Baraka, Withnail & I, Snatch, O Brother Where Art Thou, Rockers, Severn Samurai, Zatoichi, The Return (a Russian movie), Yojimbo, Rabbit Proof Fence, Dont Look Back (the documentary on Dylan), Let The Right One In (the Swedish original), The Bourne Trilogy, This Is England (in fact any film by Shane Meadows such as Dead Man's Shoes).

DoughGirl recommends The Fall, Napoleon Dynamite, and House Of Flying Daggers, which are ok but wouldn't make it into my top 50.

Not sure I have seen soylent green, I am having a look for it on Netflix now
[h=2]Soylent Green[/h]
1973 PG 97 minutesSet in a polluted, congested New York City in 2022, this sci-fi thriller stars Charlton Heston as Robert Thorn, a gumshoe looking into the murder of a corporate executive (Joseph Cotten) whose company makes a nutritious synthetic food called Soylent Green. But in the process of tracking down the killer, Thorn unearths shocking information about the product's ingredients. The cast also includes the great Edward G. Robinson in his last film role.

<dl class="clearfix"><dt class="actors">Cast:</dt><dd class="actors">Charlton Heston, Leigh Taylor-Young, Chuck Connors, Joseph Cotten, Brock Peters, Paula Kelly, Edward G. Robinson, Stephen Young, Mike Henry, Lincoln Kilpatrick, Roy Jenson, Leonard Stone, Whit Bissell
</dd></dl>
the first review tells me that it is definatly in line with movies I like
This is from science fiction's heyday, when most great movies made a social commentary. I saw a reviewer complaining about "dystopian future" movies, saying that it would never happen like that. Such a complaint completely misses the point of what a movie like this is about: it's not meant to be a prediction. The exact how, when, and where are not important so much as the point that is being made about human nature, and the warning of where our society could be headed. Optimism is important, but failing to take a sober look at ourselves is not optimism, it's blindness and ignorance. At their best, movies like this force us to take a good, hard look at ourselves. That said, this movie doesn't make as strong a point as some. It's more an interesting picture of a nightmare future, what could happen if overcrowding and population growth remain unchecked and an authoritarian government runs things with an iron fist. It's good entertainment for people who like to think about things.

I assume it's in 'no particular order'.

Difficult criteria with 'not so mainstream'. But without thinking i'd have City Of God. Also Sin City. I'd probably also opt for Zardoz too, just for the dated weird atmosphere, and esoteric storyline.

Correct it was alphabetical before the last entry
yeah its hard to describe them other than weird, bizarre or mind snicklefritz the genre cerebral is used sometimes. some are just Funny , they are all Unique ,original and not a repeat of some formula movie.
Thought city of God was familiar but I am not sure I have seen it yet after looking at the description
[h=1]City of God 2002
Cidade de Deus[/h]Two boys growing up in a violent neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro take different paths: one becomes a photographer, the other a drug dealer.
Zardoz 1974 R 105 minutesIn this cult favorite from John Boorman (Beyond Rangoon), 23rd century society is split into two castes -- the overly civilized Eternals and the barely civilized Brutals -- one of which is constantly controlling the other. The Brutals worship a huge stone figure known as Zardoz. When Zed (Sean Connery) begins to question the authenticity of this god, the film is able to offer some pointed commentary on class structure and religion.


Sin City A film that explores the dark and miserable town, Basin City, and tells the story of three different people, all caught up in violent corruption.

Been looking for a copy of Eraserhead 1976 UR 108 minutes
Auteur David Lynch sets this early effort in an industrial wasteland of a town, where young factory worker Henry Spencer (Jack Nance) dwells alongside grotesque characters and bizarre creatures -- not the least of which is his own child. Henry's girlfriend, Mary X (Charlotte Stewart), announces that she's expecting, but the real surprise comes when she gives birth to a deformed, squalling aberration -- and leaves the mutant in Henry's care.

some of those cross over into the other thread
[h=3]Better Than average Mainstream Movies of all time[/h]Troll Hunter was very good I think people that avoid subtitled movies miss out on some great stuff
Some of those I have not seen and will be adding them to my Queue

Root, I need you to pay attention here...

There's is no reason for men of our age not to have seen every Charlton Heston movie at least once, if not two to three times.

I hate to do this, but rules is rules.

Your ManCard is hereby by suspended for 30 days.

Soylent Green is a definite must see....
Of course I don't remember Who framed Roger Rabbit on your list either?
It senseless but a well spent couple of hours! Kind of like a Felix the Cat but done in a PG setting with a plot!
Maybe we should have a 50 best cartoons separate category.

Aguirre, The Wrath Of God is an all time favourite offbeat movie of mine. Compelling viewing, even more so knowing of the arduous lengths they went to to make this cult classic. The insane (on screen and off) Kinski is at his best.

I assume it's in 'no particular order'.

Difficult criteria with 'not so mainstream'. But without thinking i'd have City Of God. Also Sin City. I'd probably also opt for Zardoz too, just for the dated weird atmosphere, and esoteric storyline. Speaking of which, i dare you all to watch Eraserhead, not just casually, but with intent, that film just snicklefritzs with your head.


Pan's Labyrinth
is a good choice, and Gummo, amongst others.
I had Eraserhead on the top of my Netflix Que for a year and still had not received it after taking every other movie off my list and waiting without a disc in the mail for 2 months.
I finally canceled at home disk yet I still have not found a copy of it even on the black market and that makes me want to see it even more..
