1. The Beaver Trilogy
    4675b2fd c654 4f2f a185 924d4fe30300
    Trent Harris, A TV cameraman was given his first video camera in 1978. He goes into the parking lot to test it out and meets this awesome kid out there and films him and made a short documentary about him. He's a mortician assistant who likes to dress in drag and sing Olivia Newton John covers at school talent shows. Then Harris remade the film as a fictional video with Sean Penn, then made it a third time with Crispin Glover. All three are masterpieces and are "unreleased" due to Penn.
  2. The World's Greatest Sinner
    F48f5d2d dae4 4aeb 8d17 3ee3c4ca6aff
    The best character actor of all time (according to Kubrick and Cassevetes), Timothy Carey wrote, produced, starred, and directed this in 1962 about an insurance salesman who created his own religion after hearing rock and roll. It's narrated by the snake from the Adam and Eve chapter of the bible.
  3. Lancelot of the Lake
    A0714920 f754 45e1 92de e7257026d4f3
    Awesome Awesome Bresson movie. One of his best. Knights and loyalty betrayed, and super violent sword stabbing to the face!
  4. Let's Scare Jessica to Death
    Dcf5d763 4742 4cdf 80f1 a0b28b9a2281
    A movie about female anxiety. A horror movie where the leads aren't completely moronic idiots. This one is heartbreaks and terrifying.
  5. Highway patrolman
    A49291d6 1bc6 473c 8891 a8db9f677215
    Alex Cox's best movie.
  6. Messiah of evil
    F461cc5f 0414 4681 8f37 8f905ce2ad56
    Every major person in the crew went to either help make Badlands or Star Wars or direct Bronson in Hard Times. Joy Bang is only really in this and in Cisco Pike and she's weird and interesting in an awkward way that's rare these days. A movie where the whole is more than the parts. It sticks with you.
  7. The Last Movie
    1ce14189 3df4 41ff b0f6 dba6ea3e05ac
    Dennis Hopper got to make whatever he wanted after Easy Rider so he made The Last Movie. Surprisingly, considering its reputation, it's actually a super great movie in the tradition of movies about movies. I hear Criterion has the rights to this as well as Kit Carson's documentary about its making, American Dreamer. THAT movie has a scene of Hopper high on LSD fingering three girls. Also worth seeing.
  8. Fat City
    66576c50 65ba 4631 ba05 0c0dd40c6470
    John Huston. Stacy Keach. Susan Tyrell. Conrad Hall. Stockton in the early 1970's. Boxing. It's pretty near perfect. Some people give a shit about this one, but not enough.
