Loved loved loved The Lives of Others. Winter's Bone was very well done but also very depressing to me though.

Here's another good one: Spitfire Grill.

Duvall becomes his character, you forget he is acting.

The female as well is perfect at her craft and perfectly cast in the role.. I don't think she ever made another film after that one, unfortunately.

Reminds me of another brilliant one-off performance in another obscure film:

A Patch Of Blue (the female lead Elizabeth Hartman never did another film; her performance in this one role is so convincing and natural; where did she go? Sydney Poitier is his usual fantastic self as the male lead and Shelley Winters also perfect in her role).

"St Vincent" with Bill Murray and Melissa McCarthy.

A young boy whose parents have just divorced finds an unlikely friend and mentor in the misanthropic, bawdy, hedonistic war veteran who lives next door.

Windstruck. The same actress as the more famous Korean movie My Sassy Girl.

The only obscure movie in my top 5.

Windstruck (2004)

The "Last American Virgin" is an 80s teen classic that is surprisingly dramatic while simultaneously having typical teen genre of humor. But the plot is brilliant and juxtaposed with classic 80s music. If you enjoy 80s movies and want to watch an obscure but high-quality 80s film that does not get the attention of other 80s films like "Breakfast Club" or "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" then the "Last American Virgin" is perfect.

Real Genius

Mrs Miniver (should not be obscure bc it won the Academy Award for best picture, but no one I ask seems to know about it)
