Fashion photographer William Klein only made a few movies, and this is the cream of the crop. Polly Maggoo is an amazing visual fiesta in the style of French New Wave. It's glossy and fancy, but also waaay smarter than any of that cheezy Hollywood trash.

Mickey One (1965)





Okay, I confess, I only watched this movie because I have a crush on young Warren Beatty. But so what? I was immediately swept away by Arthur Penn's masterful direction (he also directed Warren in Bonnie & Clyde) and Stan Getz's smashing jazz soundtrack. This is an incredibly visceral, yet smoothly suave, film noir that should've went down in history, instead of being cast off into oblivion.

When most people think of Billy Zane, they think of that stupid Titanic movie. Well fuck that, because this is the kick ass film that he should be remembered for. It's a crazy old L.A. pulp film that starts off with a bang, and stays weird and wild the whole way through. Blood and Concrete is a crime allegory in the effervescent vein of Tarantino.

Marat/Sade (1967)





Marat Sade in two words is basically this: relentless insanity. After I watched it, my eyes and brain felt raped. I mean it's just so shocking and ferocious and powerful, most of all. It's an adaption of a play about the Marquis De Sade's forced duration in a mental asylum, and how he would train inmates to act and perform plays, including the one about Charlotte Corday's murder of Jean-Paul Marat. If you watch it, you'll never forget it.

A witty character study filmed in the lush jungles of South America in beautiful Eastmancolor, it's really disappointing that Luis Bunuel never got the acclaim he deserved for this biting tale of chaos after a failed revolution.

This is a strange exploitation movie with an all-star cast, featuring Billy Zane, Christina Ricci, Ron Perlman, Tippi Hedren, Andrew McCarthy, Bud Cort, John Ritter, Eartha Kitt, Leif Garret, Sandra Bernhard, Vampira, Tara Reid and Karen Black. It's also an adaption of Ed Wood's last script. Billy plays an ever-silent, Buster Keaton-esque criminal lunatic who gets into an array of picaresque adventures after he escapes from a loony bin. This movie is incredibly entertaining and really funny at times. And after taking that all into account, I can't even begin to fathom why it's not a widely watched cult classic!

Contrary to the suggestive title, no this is not a porno. This is actually the movie that made me love Natalie Wood. Inside Daisy Clover is an unconventional warning tale about how fame is fleeting and yadda yadda yadda, but watch it for Natalie's best, and most honest, performance of her career. She was a child star herself, and I think this role she played was close and relevant to her life.

To sum it up: weird weird weird so very weird. I constantly had to ask myself throughout- WTF am I watching? But in a good way. Where else, but in a Ken Russell film, will you see huge phalluses, pianists in sabre fights, crazy tsarinas, Ringo Starr as the pope, and Wagner as an electric guitar machine gun-toting Nazi Frankenstein vampire?

This is another one of those stun-gun-to-the-balls type of movies. I've read the book, and boy it's something else. I wondered, how could they make the climatic scene live up to how vividly it was described in the book? Well, John Schlesinger lived up to it and much much more, in a traumatically intense grand finale for a lifetime. Donald Sutherland is often overlooked, but is one of the best actors of our generation. He positively shines in the role of helpless idiot Homer Simpson (yep, this is where they got the name).

In one of his first movies, Francis Ford Coppola directs the tale of a fed up housewife who discovers she is pregnant and leaves home to find herself. Instead she finds a clinically retarded and super clingy James Caan and a violent, unstable Robert Duvall. This movie really got to me because it's hella depressing. Anyways this is a story kinda similar to Of Mice and Men and it'll stay with you for a long time.

William Peter Blatty, the writer of The Exorcist, decided to make a movie one day. It wasn't a horror film, it wasn't a fright fest, it was this otherworldly grand achievement called The Ninth Configuration.

The Stranger (1967)




I am a huge, gigantic, pain in the ass fan of Albert Camus. So again, I smirked to myself and thought "No one can put The fucking Stranger on screen, and stay true to the existential, nihilistic philosophical message he so perfectly captured." And uh, yeah basically I was dead wrong. First of all, it's directed by Luchino Visconti. Second of all, it stars Marcello Mastroianni and Anna Karina. I was pretty much sold before I even watched it, and even afterwards I was thunderstruck by this sordid and morbid adaption of the sad yet truthful classic novella.

Another Ken Russell movie I adore, this time an adaption of the famous novel of the same name by DH Lawrence. Glenda Jackson is marvelous as an aloof and frigid woman of temptation, and Oliver Reed and Alan Bates share an extremely gay wrestling scene. This movie is not for the easily offended, trust me on that. It's about 4 freaks with a lust for life. Literally.

There's something I really like about this movie, I just can't put my finger on it. Maybe it's Orson Welles' beard and stache. It might be, but it's probably the lack of coherence and unconventionality in Mr Arkadin that makes it so exciting, strange and ahead of it's time.

Filmed in lush black and white and featuring a young Dustin Hoffman as drug addicted comedian Lenny Bruce, this tragicomedy might just be his best role. This is acting 101, everything's perfect here and so right.

You can probably tell by now that I like total weirdo movies. And Federico fucking Fellini's retelling of the story of the infamous Italian Lothario is the epitome of eccentric.

Baby Doll (1956)




Baby Doll is another one of those movies that I can't believe was actually allowed to be released in the uptight, excessively moral 1950s. Because it was met with much fervor from anti-obscenity puritan groups, it wasn't really given a chance to be widely seen. But I think Elia Kazan captures an amazing energy and sexual tension between Carroll Baker and Eli Wallach. Karl Malden is also really good as an angry, humiliated and deranged husband. Baby Doll is weirdly similar to Lolita, as it's mostly just about a dude who wants to bang a nymphet.

Is Diane Keaton the greatest actress of all time? I think so. I'm a nostalgic idiot and I tend to romanticize the past, but this movies shows the disgusting side of the 70s. And not just that, Looking For Mr Goodbar is relevant to every girl who has struggled with adjusting to the sexuality and relationships faced in womanhood. But beware- this is definitely not a chick flick. It's upsetting and disturbing and based on a true story.

I agree mostly I suppose, yet I think many of these films are as such recognized masterpieces already... and not really underrated. Bunuel's films especially and many others do appear on most film canon lists in a regular basis.

Still a very good list as it is and yet as one can argue that in general many of these are recognized masterpieces, one can also argue that not many has really seen these films, especially today when it's all about popcorn, explosions and computer generated graphics...

And so I salute you, for advertising these here. :)

I haven't seen most of these (a lot of them are on my to watch list), but I definitely agree with The Last Detail. I think Nicholson just made so many amazing movies around that time that a few were bound to get lost in the shuffle.

I've actually seen none of these...

Good job!(: I'll have to check all of them out. I have seen one and I love that you put it on cause it's one of my favorites. 'The Driver.' So good! Though it's fairly famous, my other favorite 'Donnie Darko' should be talked about more than it is.

I am officially in love with this list. This is what my future will (hopefully) look like.

What about Kiki's Delivery Service? Or this?

I love this list. I agree with you, they are underrated, but I think time will make them become cult films.

Very good list, and even better to have called "DUMB" that stupid movie starring Ryan Gosling. What a waste of time watching that crap!

Thanks for this list. Great work!
The Driver is far superior to Drive. Thanks for pointing that out!
