    I've seen Barfly. Pretty good movie

    Being a guy, I've never understood the whole Mickey O'Rouke attraction....something rooted in 9 1/2 Weeks I guess. On the other hand, my friends who are women still don't believe me when I say that Pamela Anderson is hideous...

    Not to worry...

    I believe you! I think she looks pretty gross. Just too much of everything.

    I'm happy that you liked Barfly too! I've been feeling a bit lonely here on my picks .

    Well I am not sure you want me on your side when it comes to movies , afterall, I think Caddyshack is a underappreciated work of art...

    But seriously, I think yours and John's choices from what I have read so far pretty much match my views.

    So don't be lonely!

    Haven't seen that one, but if it's weird, I'll probably like it!

    Did you see Delicatessen?
    I'd like to see at least one of my picks on "the list", but I think there should be at least 2 ppl who liked a film to put it there!

    You mean the Delicatessen that was basically a French film? If I remember right it was about a kid falling in love with the daughter of a butcher shop, and the Dad had other "plans" for the kid...namely dinner.

    That was a strange movie. I did like it.

    Modesty,

    Great list. Eating Raoul is a very under rated movie.

    Based on that list, I would think you would like Eight Heads in A Duffle Bag if you haven't seen it.

    Another good off-beat movie is Grosse Point Blank.

    Good call Bill

    Gross Pointe Blank was very good. Cusack has made some decent offbeat Movies. I can't remember if Grifters was good or not, but he also made a recent one about a progressive music store I liked.

    I like just about all the Cusack movies.

    Grifters was considered a flop, but I thought it was a decent film, just not up to John's usual standards.

    I think the record store film you are thinking of is High Fidelity. Also a good movie in my humble opinion.

    Great list
    The list is the complied list of this forum.
    I haven't seen Eating Rauol (as far as I can recall, although the plot sounds vaguely familiar), but from what I've read about it here it sounds like it would be right up my alley!
    Sad to say, I haven't seen either Eight Heads in A Duffle Bag or
    Grosse Point Blank. This is going to be a busy weekend! (Hope it rains... )

    In case you haven't read the entire thread, my earlier picks were:
    "Greed" - a silent from 1924, by Erich von Stroheim, and
    "Cars" aka "The Cars That Ate Paris" aka "Cars That Eat Pepole" from 1974 by Peter Weir.
    (And Delicatessen, as I mentioned before)
