Thought we could help each other out in this thread, what are some good or even great films that are under the radar? They can be movies which are truly underground, or perhaps just not known to more casual observers. Hoping for some good recommendations for my collection! The Tunnel (2011) A tiny, tiny budget found footage horror film (presented as a documentary after the fact) centering around the 2007 NSW Water Crisis & the State Government’s unexplained scrapping of a plan to utilise water in the tunnels below Sydney’s CBD. A film crew heads down there chasing the story. The Tunnel doesn’t do anything new in the way of found footage horror, but it does it exceedingly well. Troll Hunter (2010) Something of a darling of low-budget found footage fans, but still largely unknown to the general public, Troll Hunter is a dark fantasy film from Norway, concerning a Governmental cover-up of a blurred line between Norwegian folklore & real wildlife of the country’s forests & mountain sides. Darkly funny, lightly scary, & very, very well-realised visually. Dark City (1998) My favourite film of all-time. A staggeringly vivid, dream-like neo-noir detective story, this film, written & directed by Alex Proyas (director of The Crow), is a mesmorising mix of Metropolis, M, Kafka & Blade Runner, & is often favourably compared with contemporaries The Truman Show & The Matrix. Revolves around a man who awakens in a hotel bath tub with no recollection of who he is, with a group of sinister men & the Police pursuing him for murder. A story with many complex themes, but delivered with a surprisingly accessible narrative...& boy, is it ever gorgeous to look at. K-Pax (2001) Might be a little on the nose in retrospect, as Kevin Spacey has the lead here, opposite Jeff Bridges. Tells the story of a man who’s committed to a sanitarium after calmly explaining he is from another planet. His relationship with a psychiatrist trying to unravel the mystery of who this man is or was, & how to help him re-discover his identity, becomes an extraordinary journey of self-discovery for both men, & will keep you guessing right until the final frame. A film whose implications & possible explanations I have spent many hours pondering over the years. Best Laid Plans (1999) An obscure crime & relationship drama featuring Josh Brolin & two future Oscar winners, in Terrence Howard & a young Reese Witherspoon. Centers around a young couple in a fly-speck Arizona town who...well, it’s tough to sell without giving too much away. If you’re a fan of quietly intriguing thrillers with a layer to unravel, you can still find this in some JB’s throughout Sydney.
