cult flicks, your favorites

My favorite, Southland Tales,
I am watching Legion right now, another flick trying to be cult status. The actors in both are known A list and A list support actors.
Legion does not compare to the quality of Southland but, are cult flicks supposed to be anything other than fun?

*Primer
The Crow
Dark City
*Donnie Darko (a Richard Kelly film, like Southland)
Waking Life (not sure if cult status)
*Mr. Nobody

The three I starred made the biggest impression on me when I first saw them.

Never heard of Primer or Mr. Nobody. I will look them up.
What about Sin City? That was a good one also. It has a sequel coming out. I have only seen one advertisement for it late at night/early morning. :) Cult time I suppose...

This hardly registers a cult film, as it is virtually unknown it seems, but I have to ut "Trop de Bonheur" on this list. I saw it when I was 16 on a movie channel we had, and I recorded it the next morning. I watched that tape so often that it broke.

I wonder what happened to the actress Estelle Perron.

Well I am getting a good list to check out. I think these movies that are off the main stream are art. Most movies are about entertainment and money, not art. I do enjoy finding A list actors in an obscure cult flick that they never talk about. It gives them at least some respect as an artist.

Hitler didn't like it but it was a great production and worth every cent of the $6 million budget.

I haven't really watched movies recently, other than a trailer of 500 MPH Storm. I guess all of the movies made by Don Hertzfeldt are real good, especially Rejected.

Anything by the Marx Brothers... famous for their one-liners and instrumental talents (classically-trained to orchestral performance level), as well as their slapstick comedic tomfoolery.

They should have a channel that airs nothing but Marx Brothers films and B movies... I'd never leave the house :P

Riddick trilogy was unexpectedly good.
