Interesting. It definitely had some gaping flaws (and I'm talking about the nature of emotion, not the gun kata thing. I certainly don't judge action movies by their realism), but I appreciate the concept they tried to tackle. I'd say it's an underrated movie at the very least.

not sure if that's a cult classic lol. just a classic<br><br>
My list is going to be a lot shorter than yours, op. I don't fall in love easily.<br><br><b>3 Iron</b>. Korean film by Ki Duk Kim (The Isle, Spring Summer Fall Winter, Samaritan Girl). My favorite by this Director, noted for making films with scarce dialogue, great cinematography, and contemplative pacing.<br><br><b>Ponyo</b>. By Japanese animator Miyazaki. Probably his simplest film to date (in terms of plot, character character motivation, and theme), it's a great film for a rainy day (or just when you're having a bad day).<br><br><b>Kiki's Delivery Service</b>. Another by Miyazaki (I swear I'm not a weeaboo, these are just really great films). Great film about adolescence and about how moving forward in life often means losing something valuable and irreplaceable (and that's it's not always for the best). Disney was bothered enough by this that they tried to neuter this theme when they dubbed it for an american audience.<br><br><b>There Will Be Bloo</b>d. Just an obscenely good film. Easily one of the best American films made in the last decade. In 50 years this film will still be notable.<br><br><b>Woman in the Dunes</b>. Stylistically powerful, Teshigahara's best collaboration with Kobo Abe. About an entomologist out collecting bugs is a desert when local inhabitants trick him into what is essentially a large sand pit with a house in it. He and the widow living in the house have to continually dig sand from the pit so they aren't buried alive.<br><br><b>Mulholland Dr</b>. In my opinion, Lynche's best and most complete film. Similar to Inland Empire, but with much better production values and a narrative structure that better establishes the characters and world.<br><br><b>Bullet Ballet</b>. One of the best examples of how skillful filming and editing can create a powerfully stylized and psychologically intense film. After a man's wife commits suicide he becomes obsessed with finding and then building (because buying guns in his country is illegal) the gun she used and then using it for his own revenge.

And here are some recent films that I've thought were very good:<br><br><b>Triangle</b>: A mindf*ck film in a similar vein as TimeCrimes (which is also very good). Just a fun film that's a bit clever.<br><br><b>Eat the Sun</b>: Very good, personal documentary about the act of sun gazing (staring into the sun for incrementally longer periods of time). It's proprietors claim all sorts of health benefits and the diminished need for food. It's a strangely beautiful film at moments and brings up all sorts of questions about the nature of belief, about believing in something that others think is ridiculous, and that makes you an outcast in the process(in this sense it should be of particular interest to vegetarians).

That one is a 'must see' in my book.<br><br>
Top of my list is 'Bad Boy Bubby' ...<br><br>
Disturbing (deeply in places), sad, very funny, real 'feel good' ending.
