Top 10 Favorite Lesser-Known Movies

At a dinner party on Friday, a friend asked if I had a favorite lesser-known movie that I’d recommend. I rarely see eclectic films, so I’m not sure if any of the movies on this list truly fit the “lesser-known” category, but they’re close enough. These aren’t Oscar winners or box-office juggernauts; they’re just great movies that some people saw and most didn’t.

  1. Primer: If you like time-travel movies, I recommend this.
  2. Definitely, Maybe: If you like romantic comedies, I recommend this.
  3. The Fantastic Mr. Fox: If you like quirky movies or Roald Dahl books, I recommend this.
  4. The Cabin in the Woods: If you’re critical of movie tropes, I recommend this.
  5. Warrior: If you need a good cry, I recommend this.
  6. Win Win: If you want to root for a likable group of people, I recommend this.
  7. Adventureland: If you want to feel like a teenager for a few hours, I recommend this.
  8. Make Believe: If you’re in the mood for a documentary, I recommend this.
  9. Midnight in Paris: If you want to be whisked away to another time, I recommend this.
  10. Warm Bodies: If you like films that challenge the norm, I recommend this.
