Pretty Unknown, though Rotten Tomatoes has it at 96% for the time being, so it's definitely not underrated.

I found the following list of films to be gems. Some were great, and others were good, but a lot of people have not seen them, or just skip them do to the fact that they don't look worthwhile.

Totally 100% agree with What Doesn't Kill You and Open Water. I consider both of them great films that haven't received the appreciation they deserve. High Tension was good, but definitely not my favorite of the recent French horror offerings.

A Guide... is a solid film as well.

Appreciate your admiration for The Vicious Kind, but I had some serious problems with it.

Haven't seen any of the others but will look into a few of them.

Glad to hear you agree with me on "What Doesn't Kill You". I wish more people would see it, as it's pretty much just as good as a lot of mainstream crime flicks. I haven't seen many Foreign films in general, so I don't have a whole lot of knowledge in that department. I'll check some more out soon though.

The Vicious Kind is an acquired taste, requiring a certain sense of humor to really enjoy. I love Adam Scott as an actor, so I was pleased with the film, and also really like dark humor, so that worked. What were your issues with it?

pretty good list....
Posted: 6 years ago at Jun 9 17:07
Lots to check out here, thanks. But Open Water - overlooked? Really? It's famous as having one of the best returns ever for a low-budget movie: it was made for $500K and took $52m at the box office...
Posted: 6 years ago at Jun 10 0:34
I don't classify 'Open Water' as all that overlooked, counterzer0. This list also features movies in which I find to be underrated. The title says so. However, in terms of how much publicity it got/does get, in addition to the fact that not a lot of people have heard of it, its a bit overlooked. Even despite its 52 million dollars at the box office.

I've asked a few people if they've heard of it/seen it, and most of the time the answer is no to both. It isn't very well known.....
