Every so often, I post a list of great films that go unrecognized with casual movie fans. Some are current, some are older, some are domestic, some are foreign, but they're all brilliant movies you should check out if you have a chance.

If a film has a * symbol next to it, that means that the selected choice is an exceptional stand out.
