Lists by chgaines-1
The title speaks for itself. Of course, there are loads of titles I could have included on this list but omitted (either because I haven't yet seen them, or they are getting plenty of love in other lists), in favor of drawing attention to some titles that you might have missed, as well as including a title or two of films that were an unexpected surprise IMO (think: Apes). Enjoy!
This is sort of a jumbled combination of films I saw at film festivals and during theatrical releases that either deserved a closer look, or a second look, because they were sort of misunderstood when they came out, or didn't stand a chance against the competition. Check 'em out! They are in no particular order.
Help me add to this list! I LOVE movies about making movies.
As part of our 20th Anniversary celebrations, IMDb'ers were asked to prepare a list of their 20 top films of the last 20 years. This was very difficult, because I instantly made a list of about 50 and then started removing films to get to 20, which was as painful as extracting splinters. Ultimately (and with just a few exceptions) I settled on a list of films I most wanted other people to see, rather than films that I loved but were enormously successful. Using IMDb's new list functionality made this really, REALLY fun!
