    Memento was a good one. As was Reservoir Dogs (and pulp fiction).

    Seen it (long ago), but I wouldn't mind revisiting it.

    A couple of movies about Charles Bukowski.

    Barfly
    Factotum

    Apparently there are more these days. I will have to check them out at some point.

    Both are independent classics.

    Blues Hammer is in the movie "Ghost World," a film I love.



    "Ghost World" also has a scene in which the lead character watches this Bollywood dance number on TV.



    Trivia Note: "Ghost World" star Thora Birch is the daughter of adult film actors whose credits include "Deep Throat."

    Ghost World makes me think of these movies, for whatever reasons.

    Benny and Joon
    Juno
    What's Eating Gilbert Grape
    Revolutionary Road
    Shutter Island

    Bug was a good watch. Pretty dark. Beware light-hearters.

    "Ghost World" was shot in Los Angeles and probably set in Los Angeles, but for some reason it makes me think of Sacramento and the type of alterna-hipsters you'd find up there. (My grandparents lived in Sacramento and the family still owns their house, so I've spent a lot of time there.)

    Revolutionary Road was an awesome slow burn.

    Lots of my favorites listed here already, along with many great suggestions.

    Here are a few others, with unusual subject matter, that I have enjoyed:

    Star Maps
    Smoke Signals
    Black Cat, White Cat
    Brewster McCloud
    Zuckerbaby (aka Sugarbaby)
    Dirty Pretty Things

    Bob Roberts is a political film that is quite resonant.

    Glad to see The Bed Sitting Room and Pink Flamingos in the list.
    I would add Harold and Maude, probably my favourite film.

    I was an extra in BMcC. I think I got something like $30 for being in a scene at Herman Park Zoo.

    Another great movie. Some would argue it's Brad Pitt's finest work.

    If you've not seen it ... Try ...

    Surely available on all platforms?

    "Night of the Hunter" starring Robert Mitchum is really weird in the way it is filmed, and Mitchum's character is so creepy that you actually fear him.
