Wake in Fright is great. If you feel like expounding, I'd be interested to hear why you feel Eyes Wide Shut should be more highly rated.

To add to the thread, people have different ideas about what is unknown, but off the top of my head, some favorite late 60s/early 70s satires/black comedies are the Loved One, the Telephone Book, and Putney Swope.

I really liked this. V.V. should incorporate more "serious" roles like this in his career....

A coupla supposed chick flicks that I feel are not only well done low budget films, but I also find them poignant for our times, and I get a distinctly guilty pleasure for some reason watching them: Hysterical Blindness (Uma Thurman and Juliette Lewis), and Be Happy. Both loaded with metaphor that admittedly guys might not pick up on right away.

 

On TV last night, absolute and total shite: 4 weddings and a funeral. Even shittier than the first time I saw it several years ago. Sheesh. That storyline would never work today.

there were a number of "DONT GET CAUGHT WITH 0.01oz OF Drugs IN THAILAND" movies in the late 90's. I visited thailand in the late 90's in college and well lets just say all my friends and I did a lot of drugs despite the warnings of being shot by local drug lords, thrown in jail and hung, or basic life in jail in 3rd world scenarios.

90's movie themes pushed by studios:

1. end of world by aliens/or huge asteroid
2. raunchy high school comedy remix
3. volcanos
4. DON'T GET CAUGHT WITH 0.01oz of DRUGS IN THAILAND

I wouldn't say Eyes wide shut is underrated - but I remember the DVD extras to be even more creepy and cryptic than the actual movie. first off the commentaries focused on kidman/cruise's relationship with Kubric - he almost comes off like a cult leader (he was already dead by that time), then they start asking some seriously intrusive questions about the storyline and their own marriage. Kidman gave some really raw answers and its super interesting in light of how their marriage was crumbling at the same time.

One of the best Canuxploitation films ever....The Silent Partner 1978

Staring: Elliott Gould, Christopher Plummer, Susannah York, Celine Lomez and a small role by a young John Candy. The only ever dramatic theatrical feature film to be scored by Oscar Peterson.

Divorce Italian Style - maybe forgotten a little, one of the best movies I have ever seen

 

As good as it gets - also great, one of my favorites

 

Buying the cow - silly little movie but I enjoyed it a lot, just seen it's good 5,9 on imdb :S so I'd say underrated

 

The Hunger (1983) - great movie in its genre,underrated for sure
