This little New Zealand horror gem has touches of the mystery and the supernatural (maybe). There's isn't a lot of spelling it out here. The film respects the viewier. If you stick with it, you will be rewarded and not mention there's some honest chills as well. ” - gtm604

I guess the Canadian in me just had to put one of the most creative directors Guy Maddin to come out of Canada since Cronenberg. Best not to know anything about this one and expect something very original, unusual, hypnotic and beautiful. ” - gtm604

Dry Dark humored with a simple yet interesting premise. A documentary crew follows around a detective a la reality tv style to capture the on goings of his day to day life. How are they able to get a look into such on goings you might ask simply his partner and him are hard up for money. It's well written has good timing and some very inventive plot twists. ” - gtm604

From the director who brought you Henry Portrait of a Serial Killer and Wild Things brings to you this wacky Sci-Fi Horror cross breed with a big dose of camp and over the top insanity. It reminded me of another great Sci-Fi horror of the time The Hidden (1987) ” - gtm604

“ Rating of 6.9 with 834 users voting

High concept: take an army camera man stick him in the vietnam war and only show his prespective.

It's these one idea high concept films that are hard to pull off. I won't claim the film fully realizies or fully capitalizes on the idea. Nother the less its an intresting examination that is put to better use then say Lady in the Lake which followed a simular idea of capturing the main characters point of view throughtout the film. ” - gtm604

Back when Friedkin was still making interesting and important films. It's a bit cobbled together but I forgive it for it was in production hell for sometime. ” - gtm604

What the heck happened to Wayne Wang?

So promising. First Chan is Missing; a retro black and white neo noir Then came Slam Dance a bit heavy handed yet stylistically brillant then came Eat a Bowl of Tea which could easy make this list as well, his masterpiece came next in the image of The Joy Luck Club powerful poetic with tons of heart what followed was two uneven playful cinematic experiments in Blue in the Face and Smoke. I will admit his latest stuff looks intriguing. Anyone seen any of them ? I would love to here your input on them. ” - gtm604

I wasn't expecting to put this film on the list when looking it up. I was honestly shocked. More people need to check this out. It's a modernized screwballish comedy from writer director Bogdanovich. ” - gtm604
