Here's a shortlist of my videosyncrasies. Not necessarily my all-time favorites but the ones I pulled off the top of my head.
Suffice to say, that Hollywood is built on the bottomeline at the box office and churns out unentertaining and uninspiring mindless fare, so most of these may be off your viewing radar.
American Astronaut (Less a movie and more an off-Broadway rock musical in the vein of Rocky Horror or Hedwig.)
Scratch & Scratch Live (For fans of turntablism. Find out why DJ's are the new jazzmen!)
House of Flying Daggers (Poetic and beautiful. Like a haiku, so much can be said with few words.)
Distant (Like a Sigur Ros album; cold, languid, melancholic, haunting, meditative, complex. This Turkish delight is another film with little dialogue.)
A Clockwork Orange (A better surrealistic commentary on man's future, violence, and control of society than Orwell's 1984. Gather your droogs and head for the nearest milkbar. Right, right!)
A Boy And His Dog (Another one for Sci-Fi fans. Yeah, that's a very young Don Johnson waaaayy before that 80's TV show. It's a witty post-apocalyptic story of a young man and his telepathic dog looking for food and women. This may be one of the most disturbing endings on film, ever.)
The Hidden (Kyle MacLachlan (before Twin Peaks) as a very weird FBI agent tracking down an alien bug with a penchant for fast cars and hard rock that takes people over.)
Wizards (1977 animated movie by Ralph Bakshi in the vein of Lord of the Rings. The lovable assassin Peace is a classic character. And the "they killed Fritz" segment is priceless.)
The Warriors (NYC street gangs try to stop the Warriors, falsely accused of killing a charismatic leader trying to unite the gangs, from making it back home to Coney Island. Warriors, come out and play-yay.)
Evil Dead trilogy (I'm cheating here, but all three of these films (from Sam Raimi) are cult classics and deserve mention. Find out what happens when a young man accidently resurrects hordes of dead demons. It's a hoot!)
Monty Python's Life of Brian (No list is complete without the Pythons. Really, you won't lose out with any of their films but this one works best for me.)
