In the poorest quarters of India, people rely in movies as the ultimate escape. So obsessed with film that they even make their own. The documentary "Supermen of Malegaon" is a funny flight of a slice of life. Do not pass the chance to watch it.

Blackthorn (2011)
Just because he ain't Kevin Costner or Tommy Lee Jones, doesn't mean Sam Shepard can't carry a Western movie. He stars as an aged Butch Cassidy out living under the radar down in Bolivia.

Brad Anderson's Bossanova-soaked romantic comedy starring a stunning Hope Davis and a small, but memorable part for Philip Seymour Hoffman belongs to only 7 lists on Listal. It's an Indie gem few have seen.

Early 90s, "Searching for Bobby Fischer" was one of those brilliant quiet films. It starred Joe Mantegna, Joan Allen and Ben Kingsley as chess tutor Bruce Pandolfini to chess prodigy Josh Waitzkin. 48 lists says well for the film, unfortunately for Max Pomerance who played Waitzkin, who only has 4 likes in Listal.

Clean, Shaven (1993)
  I knew it wouldn't stay under 10 lists for long, "Clean, Shaven" was Peter Greene's tour de force, just a year earlier before he got train-raped by Marsellus Wallace in "Pulp Fiction." Ouch.

The movie is one of the "greatest" musical biographies ever and made a sort of legend of Daniel Johnston, but that didn't really made a difference in the musical world. It's just a sad story.
