Lists by MortalKombatFan1
These are movies I own, but haven't seen once.
Other titles not on IMDB:
Radiohead - In Rainbows – From the Basement
Mashed in Plastic: The David Lynch Mash-Up Movie
Drive in Delirium, Vol. 1
I put the more popular/recent titles first to get more views.
So just to clarify with some examples:
"Unbreakable" is underrated as most critics passed it off at the time of it's release but it has since maintained a strong following with over 160,000 votes on imdb.
The Malayalam film "Elippathayam" (Rat-trap) written and directed by Adoor Gopalakrishnan is acclaimed but it is obscure even in it's country of production. It is still available on DVD with subtitles from the UK company Second Run, however, so it isn't hard to find.
Whereas the Turkish comedy "Outrageous Class" is very popular in Turkey and has a high rating on imdb, it's not available legally with English subtitles on home video overseas, making it hard to find.

Whever I see the movie, I delete it from this list after rating
No live shows (comedy/music), stand-alone shorts, web shows or anime.
-Each film is in order of release year
-No movie is under 50 minutes
Also, you should follow this tumblr:
No film is over 49 minutes (with the exceptions of David Lynch's "Rabbits", "My Childhood" & "My Ein Folk", and "The Smiling Madame Beudet").
Also, no feature length anthology films were included.
I began making this list in early 2009. I now finished it in 2013, adding the short oscar nominations for this year.
Enjoy and discuss!
P.S. I really like these short film lists here: http://www.imdb.com/list/bCsd0-DTUv4/ http://www.imdb.com/list/6e6x6r_kXKE/ http://www.imdb.com/list/-3JHOu65Aq8/ http://www.imdb.com/list/J-Pb12XD-As/ http://www.imdb.com/list/bDt6cQhgFus/ http://www.imdb.com/list/mYyBXbOXh6Y/ http://www.imdb.com/list/dDGV4VgYLzA/ http://www.imdb.com/list/1ihjrAh-MF0/ http://www.imdb.com/list/zrOngfdYPI4/ http://www.imdb.com/list/TftcqepYvYI/

And don't forget about this list about 16mm Eperimental films: http://www.prattlibrary.org/locations/sightsandsounds/index.aspx?id=33290
Those lists are bound to have films not on my list, maybe even ones not on IMDB.
Edit: Removed 3 titles: La coiffeuse (1905), Eveready Harton in Buried Treasure (1929), and Transfer of Modulation (1969) for being in the adult category, causing this list to be filtered. This version is otheriwise the same, just republished.
Also seen but not on IMDB:
Aquatic (1987) (Koji Yamamura)
Petit Eva: Evangelion@School (2007-2009)
All films were shown theatrically in one form or another.
Most films listed are available commerically.
Also included in the descriptions for some movies are links to reviews and where you can buy some of the rarer films.
Lav Diaz, has the most films on this list (nine)
The runner ups are Ulrike Ottinger and Andy Warhol who tie with six each.
Here is are some articles on the films of Lav Diaz:
A possible future addition would be a six-hour version of The Tree of Life, although it hasn't surfaced yet, so I won't add it. I'll also include the extended Django Unchained when it's released (around 3 hours).
These films were made by people who never directed a feature film again after making their debut for respective reasons.
Recently removed Zach Braff (Garden State), Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang), Shane Carruth (Primer), James Richards (Black Neon) and Vince Offer (Underground Comedy Movie) for returning to directing. José Antonio Sistiaga did make another feature, Laztanak (1970) (16mm, 85 minutes), which is not on imdb.
Also some more recent movies without much dialogue in them.
