Top 5 best movies, Independent films for the most part

Recommended Posts

Alright, we are in this forum it says enough. Druggies and drunks and Art lovers alike hit this shit up, I'm really really drunk right now and reading the Donnie Darko thread and it got me started, here it is -- -- --

1. Pi - Mathematics, Chaos, Patterns, Oblivion

2. Donnie Darko - A beautiful film, writing is absolutely amazing, this is a beautiful piece of artwork, and an amazing writng accomplishment

3. Vannilla Sky - hate me for putting a movie with Tom Cruise in it on here, but this is just an amazing dreamworld, We all have wanted that girl that we just couldn't have - Watch This Movie It will make you think and remember that crush you had

4. Fight Club - best movie ever fucking made, hands down, actors are artists in this, all of you saw it, this is the best but for independennt sake im cutting some slack

Bully/Kids - this is up to you, Larry Clark is a genious, but last time i watched Gummo i was drunk and it freaked me out. Bully is a masterpiece

none of those movies are really independent, not even Pi or Kids, but def random is what i would call it, many of these scripts were prolly written with some help from some hard drugs

Bowling for Columbine was great, but there are parts which are..shall we say 'misleading'.

 

and dont forget 'Roger & Me'. By a younger, goofier looking, slightly thinner..Michael Moore.

Tyler, ever see About Schmidt?

 

If you like Punch Drunk Love, you'll get a kick out of Jack Nicholson in About Schmidt. Not his usual typecast roles... just like Sandler in PDL.
