    Goodbye Lenin is great too! I remember it being pretty hilarious.

    Some of the movies listed are definitely not "small movies", lol!

    For those of you who saw and liked Amélie (aka, "le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain") you will enjoy "A very long engagement" (un long dimanche de fiançailles) by the same director, with the same lead actress (Audrey Tautou) and the now famous Marion Cotillard in a small role.

    Another good one (French/russian): Le concert

    An older gem: Bagdad Café

    Sorry. Nell sounds like it was a take off from Truffaut's film about the wolf boy, the title of which I forget. Ah! The Wild Child.

    A Mighty Wind, a gentler effort from Chris Guest, with some suprisingly terrific music
    Thanks BabyGreen for the title of the Venice movie.

    "Never give up. Never Surrender" such a sweet, perfect movie.
    'A Mighty Wind' was fun (a bit close to home though)

    I think it was viney, tradewind - but I agree, I couldn't stand it either.
    And 'Best In Show' was spot.on.

    If you like British crime, a must watch are all the Prime Suspect mysteries with Helen Mirren playing a female Detective Inspector in a very male dominant police force.

    Love Helen Mirren, loved her in Prime Suspect.

    Rocket Gilbraltar with Burt Lancaster. Made in the 80's I think. Lovely little movie about a family reunion and Lancaster is the patriarch. Kleenex needed.

    Oh, I forgot Lars and the Real Girl. Another odd little movie but very enjoyable.

    I am feeling very blue and discouraged (once again) reading the 'politics' threads.

    So I thought I would revive this 'feel good' thread.

    I meant to make a list last time around and try to see some of the films suggested.

    Did anyone see any of these?
    Does anyone have any more suggestions?

    What a great list of movies. One I didn't see mentioned that is one of my all-time favorites is Nobody's Fool, with Paul Newman, Jessica Tandy, and Bruce Willis. Drive is a terrific movie, one not easily forgotten. Also with Ryan Gosling is Crazy, Stupid Love, another of my all-time favorites.

    I don't know if this was mentioned but we finally sat down and watched Sleepwalk with Me.

    It's based on a story that was first on a This American Life story (epidsode: Fear of Sleep) which is outrageously hilarious.

    It was very good and I was kind of prepared to be disappointed. My husband loves bang bang smash smash movies and he really liked it

    It's available on most on-demand services for $7.99 and totally worth it. Cheaper than 1 ticket at the theater and you can make your own popcorn

    In the cute, enjoyable non-Hollywood romance category:

    Italian for Beginners - a very cute movie. Several lonely hearts in a semi-provincial suburb of a town in Denmark use a beginner's course in Italian as the platform to meet the romance of their lives.

    Romantics Anonymous - Jean-René, the boss of a small chocolate factory, hires Angélique, a gifted chocolate maker, as a sales rep. They are both shy and trying to hide it. What occurs when a highly emotional man meets a highly emotional woman? They fall in love, and this is what occurs to Jean-René and Angélique who share the same handicap.

    Default Anyone remember Wild in the Streets?

    My sister has Comcast, and mentioned to me she saw it listed last week. Creepy movie. Interesting music. A real cult movie about politics. I bet it will never be shown on TCM.
    Another killer of threads

    Thank you, Fred. It's always nice to have a little light-heartedness in my day.

    I just watched the remake of Steel Magnolias that has been showing over and over on cable. I thought it was good, and an interesting foil to the original. It did not have the emotional impact at the end, I thought.

    OK - I just read 8 pages of movies titles and nobody mentioned The Lonlieness of the Long Distance Runner?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Lon...e_Runner_(film)

    What ever happened to Tom Courtenay?

    Also here's an obscure HR film:
    the French film Mazeppa

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mazeppa_(film)

    The scene that stuck with me is a rider taking an entire afternoon to passage across a courtyard.

    and my alltime favorites:

    Love Ethel Waters in "Member of the Wedding".

    A nice little, fairly recent, movie: "Cedar Rapids", about a guy who goes to an insurance convention and has various "adventures".
