District 13 is on Netflix now. Not much plot to speak of but far and away the best action film I've ever seen. First time I saw it I went straight back to the beginning and watched it again!
Recommend me the best film I've probably never seen...
It's been mentioned but if you haven't seen the lives of others then you really must. An astounding film, the sort of film Hollywood couldn't comprehend let alone actually put into production.
Definitely add it to your list.
Internal Affairs (original) - Main characters were well played
Grosse Point Blank - 80s music, violence and comedy
Immortal - Based on Enki Bilal comics, far from perfect but I like it's madness
Executive decision - Best Steven Seagal movie ever
Bubba Ho-Tep - Crazy characters and plot
To kill a Mockingbird.
You're there in the deep South in the summer.
The Twilight Samuri. The lead character- all men should strive to have his fortitude.
Dr. Strangelove, a perfect film. Peter Sellers is amazing, as is Slim Pickens.
+2 for office space.
My favourite film ever. Very funny, if you do or have worked in an office.
Plus, great soundtrack imo. (i like rap)
Fish Story - best "world is about to end plot" ever and I also loved the tune that the film is based around. The old guy in the record store had me in stitches as he berates the two youngsters. The film is pure indy art with no dialogue wasted, brilliant acting and vinyl...what more could you want?
Another Earth - tick to buy
Is Bad taste still available?? I saw that in the early 90's!

Delicatessen - Post-apocalyptic food weirdness - highly original.
Man bites dog - Serial killer documentary of sorts - dark and amusing.
Brazil - Future/retro weirdness - Terry Gilliam at his best.
The angels share - a good feel good ken loach movie.
I'm going to go with...
A scanner darkly
The fountain (Darren aronofsky one)
Yeah, for the reasons he gave above.
+1 for the Station Agent
+1 for Sightseer
City of God
Twin Town - very funny comedy about a family in Swansea
McCullin - moving and stark documentary of a war photojournalist
The Big Lebowski
If your into martial arts films watch Ong Bak, best fight film ever!
+3 for 12 Angry Men
Dead Man's Shoes
The Longest Day
Love, Honour and Obey
two side splittingly funny dark comedies that will help you to see things as they are instead of how you think they should be..
Oh, and plus 1 for La Haine for the same reason..
About to watch "The Imposter" on C4+1, which is apparently excellent.
Gattaca. A cracking film about a future predetermined by your genetics. Well worth watching.
Bad day at black rock . Great story well acted and well paced.
Intermission. Funny , unusual , well acted .
In Bruges . Great story , well acted , believable , black comedy genius .
Downfall. Superb German film about the last days in the furhebunker
Good night and good luck. Recentish film shot in black and white and set in the era of McCarthy. Quite unusual.
If you ain't seen Apocalypto, then watch it.
Scott Pilgrim vs the World. VERY marmite, but never seen another film quite like it.
Dogma. Work of genius. Smart, funny, and best cinematic take on the nonsense of religion IMHO.
Valhalla Rising. Weird and violent. Bit of a mess in some ways but also beautiful and mesmerising.
Near Dark. Best vampire film ever.
+1 for Trollhunter.
i still have bad taste on vhs, but nothing to play it on.
Old Boy. Messes with your mind, and has one of the most interesting items of cuisine you are likely to see eaten on film!
So I watched Primer - enjoyed it, makes you think!
Keep the suggestions coming though, as I said seen about half of them, but the ones I've seen are good so I'm assuming the other suggestions are good too
Hopefully others are getting some good info from this thread too - STW is on form here I think.
Th two I forgot to post before
The life of David Gale. Involving and thought provoking.
The Reader. Naughty in places and with an interesting turn of events
