Highly Underrated/Unknown Movies - Page 14

post #196 of 412
Was thinking about this today. Perhaps a forgotten film that I still think is great- Rush
I also love Scott Hicks films- Shine and Snow Falling on Cedars; great auteurs are few and far between these days. Additionally, I will watch anything by Darren Aronofsky (although the Fountain was a little painful)

Just got a Criterion release. Nice WW2 thriller. Written by the guys who wrote The Lady Vanishes and directed by Carol Reed (very underrated btw). Also has the awesome Rex Harrison.

Ghost world. Steve buscemi does his best work in this movie i think. subtle and realistic. he may have been just playing his real life personality though.

Since when is Casino underrated?

Goodfellas was celebrated by critics but Casino not because of derrogatory remarks against a Jewish character in the film. That is the way it was treated in Canada anyway.
Casino just wasn't promoted at the same level as Goodfellas was.
Perhaps in the USA it was received better?
Ask people yourself. Mention Goodfellas. Almost everyone saw it.
Ask them about Casino and few, if any remember this film.
That's been my results and that is why Casino is on my list.
Perhaps it's a geographical thing?

Wristcutters - A Love Story should definitely be in here.

Very underrated Polanski. Not perfect, but it's still a damn good thriller.

Martin Short's Clifford

It wasn't very well received and rightly so, it's so weird and absurd that it can be frustrating. But like a good Mitch Hedberg joke, I find myself thinking about it more often than not.
