Ah, 1989. The year the Berlin Wall came down and Yugoslavia won the Eurovision Song Contest. It was also a big year for film, with Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade topping the box office and Batman dominating the summer with its inescapable marketing blitz.
Outside the top 10 highest-grossing list, which included Back To The Future II, Dead Poets Society and Honey I Shrunk The Kids, 1989 also included a plethora of less commonly-appreciated films. Some were big in their native countries but only received a limited release in the Us and UK. Others were poorly received but have since been reassessed as cult items.
From comedies to thrillers, here's our pick of 25 underappreciated films from the end of the 80s...

“Promised Land” is far from Van Sant’s worse film, but it’s certainly his blandest since “Finding Forrester.” By tackling the immensely topical issue of fracking, the film promises to stage provocative verbal altercations between an energy company salesman, Steve Butler (Matt Damon), and an environmental activist, Dustin (John Krasinski). At least that’s what the trailers suggest, but the script co-authored by Damon and Krasinski (based on a story by Dave Eggers) turns out to be a groan-inducing bait-and-switch.

It was Grace Zabriskie’s 71st birthday last week. She’s achieved a lot in her vast career over the 34 years she’s been acting: she had a daughter with oversized thumbs (Even Cowgirls Get the Blues); paid River Phoenix for sex (My Own Private Idaho); been killed by Chuckie (Child’s Play 2); ran on a brothel (The Brothel); evangelized about vampires (Blood Ties); had a asteroid named after her (Armageddon); performed a voodoo sex-killing (Wild at Heart); fought for worker’s rights (Norma Rae); navigated b-movie space horrors (Galaxy of Terror); and turned mourning into a mad maternal art (Twin Peaks). And that's just ten of her 93+ screen roles.
Here are three performances that I feel deserve highlighting.
The Milk writer makes his directorial debut with the drama, which stars Connelly as Virginia, a mentally troubled woman who has an affair with a married sheriff, played by Ed Harris.
The film, originally titled What's Wrong With Virginia, premiered to largely negative reviews at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival, prompting Black to head back into the editing room.
Now he admits he was forced to cough up his own money to complete the passion project to his liking.
He tells New York Magazine, "We never felt we had enough time in the editing room... We didn't even have time to watch it with an audience. We showed it to friends and family - which I'm now thinking is a terrible idea, because they're always going to say they love it and that's not very helpful. And although the audiences in Toronto were very supportive, just watching the film through their eyes, I felt like I was watching a film that didn't know if it was a drama or a comedy, until maybe about an hour in. For me, that was too late in the film.
"And for the critics, that was definitely too late in the film. And I got beaten up by critics, in some ways deservedly so. So I went to my producer... and I said, 'We have to cut this thing.' It was tough, because we had distribution offers, and people said, 'If you don't take them now, these will go away.' So it was a bit of a fight. I had to pony up some of the money for the re-edit."
But Black reveals he did have some help from celebrated filmmaker Gus Van Sant: "He told me a story about re-cutting a film (Even Cowgirls Get the Blues) that didn't go well, and gave me some advice about what to watch out for."
Often blossoming from difficult circumstances the love stories in Van Sant’s films hold to a notion of breaking free from a sense of being trapped, be it be society or addiction, external oppression (literal and imagined) or from a lifestyle the characters find themselves in. What always interests me about his films are the instances of love appearing often without being looked for, sometimes unspoken but always naturally occurring and always, crucially, believable.
From the starkness of his early work with My Own Private Idaho and Drugstore Cowboy, through the unfulfilling Even Cowgirls Get the Blues to the darkly funny To Die For Van Sant’s exploration of the impact
Thurman also is well-known for her starring role in the cult feature film hit Pulp Fiction (for which she received Oscar and Golden Globe nominations) as well as for Kill Bill Vol. 1, both directed by Quentin Tarantino. She first achieved notice in the film Dangerous Liaisons and Henry & June, and went on to star in other films such as Kill Bill Vol. 2, Even Cowgirls Get the Blues, Mad Dog and Glory, Beautiful Girls, The Truth About Cats & Dogs, Gattaca, Batman & Robin, Paycheck and Be Cool.
More recently, Thurman also starred in the films The Producers, My Super Ex-Girlfriend, The Accidental Husband and Motherhood. She will star in the upcoming film Eloise in Paris.
Los Angeles (Reuters) - "Restless," the new film from Oscar-nominated "Milk" director Gus Van Sant tells a simple tale: boy meets girl, girl dies of cancer, boy mourns girl. But in Van Sant's hands, the film is anything but a sentimental four-hankie weeper.
Anchored by strong performances from Mia Wasikowska ("Alice in Wonderland") and newcomer Henry Hopper (son of Dennis Hopper), "Restless" hits theaters on Friday playing more like an intense adolescent romance than a tragedy.
Van Sant, whose credits include "Good Will Hunting," "Drugstore Cowboy," "My Own Private Idaho," "Even Cowgirls Get the Blues," and "To Die For" spoke to Reuters about making the film and why he hates being photographed.
