    Non-Mainstream films

    Can anyone recommend any non-mainstream or querky films that I could get on DVD Region 2?

    I'm looking for those cult films or "little Gems" that have a dedicated following (don't care if they are black & white).

    TIA, Mark.

    Office Space - Best damn movie about working in High Tech. and the lunacy that goes on.

    Dogma - Best of the Kevin Smith movies
    Chasing Amy - Second best of Kevin Smith

    Forbidden Planet - Top notch B Sci Fi from the 50's

    Evil Dead III - Army of Darkness -- Funny funny funny!!!!

    The Sure Thing - John Cusack at his comedic best.
    Grosse Point Blank - Just damn funny!

    The Unbearable Lightness of Being

    Not sure it meets your criteria. I highly recommend it. One is left asking why? (for years I might add)

    It features Daniel Day Lewis before his prominence in the USA.

    Try to get "Two Lane Blacktop" It's a B or lower movie, an oldie, B/W stars James Taylor. You know, "Sweet Baby James".

    Also you could try the original series of "Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy"

    I loved Magnolia, about the only movie I liked with Tom Cruise in it !

    Cube is even stranger.

    I'd recommend Shaun Of The Dead.

    Re: Non-Mainstream films

    My favourites are 'The singing detective' Denis Potter with Michael Gambon, 'Drowning by numbers' Peter Greenaway, 'Y tu mama tambien', and 'Fanny and Alexander'

    Repo man, Accione Mutante and Cube fit the bill if you are into wierd cult sci fi.

    Jim, i gotta disagree on the Kevin Smith order, i'd go Clerks, Dogma, Mall Rats, Amy, and J&SB strike back.

    Magnolia is also a must.
