Coming-of-age story about a young boy who creates a fantasy world in order to make his life tolerable. Plot sounds like same old same old right? Well it's graphic, funny as shit, wayyyyyyyyy out there and definitely not the same old same old. GOTTA SEE IT.

Think Scorsese's After Hours but with a lighter comedic feel yet possessing unexpected moments of nasty darkness. Unconventional & unpredictable. Cool David Bowie as a British hitman plus all sorts of other OH SHIT! big name cameos.

Gorgeous magic trick like suicides and happy funerals and Ruth Gordon has an arm tattoo and Bud Cort's mom and Cat Stevens! The epitome of Dark Comedy that I know is well known but it still needs more exposure cause Hal Ashby gotdammit.

Peter Weir yet again shows why he's one of the most underrated directors alive. Outstanding, emotional flick. Rosie Perez got a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination for her performance as a grieving mother.

Kinda like if Alejandro Jodorowsky helped the Coens make No Country For Old Men. It's Robert Downey Sr. extreme insanity so that's all the reason you really need to check it out.

I have an unhealthy love for Jennifer Jason Leigh and I blame her cause if she wouldn't keep putting out stellar fucking performances like this one then I wouldn't have to seek higly expensive professional help. Mare Willingham is top notch here too in this life long embattled sister music drama.

Why in the living hell isn't Albert Brooks' work recognized as the wonderfully lighthearted yet hilarilously profound flicks that they are?

Not every flick here is a top to bottom masterpiece (well some are dammit) but I will guarantee you that every flick is filled with an OH SHIT moment or two or strives for something big n' bold n' ballsy or will be branded into your brain until the very day you die. Or just all 3. Enjoy ya rat basta'ds!

Also, some are just amazing some are just underrated some are just obscure and some are just bizarre but most of the time there's a little mix n matching crossover going on but don't expect each flick to meet all four criteria. All I know is all these flicks just need more love.

Still gotta finish adding descriptions on some movies. Will do as soon as possible!

*EDIT* Holy shit Im lazy. Will do this eventually I promise.
