What's a really good movie you'd recommend that most people probably haven't seen?
My personal recommendation: Synecdoche, New York. It's one of those movies that words fail utterly to capture--which really is the hallmark of a good movie, I suppose. Film, being an audio-visual media, allows for so many interesting and unusual narritive devices that you could never pull off in a book. Anyway, please, if you have the time and the means, watch this movie without first having read any reviews or synopses, and without asking your friends about it--just experience it for what it is. If you want your two hours and rental fee back afterwards, feel free to come back and complain and I'll listen, but that's all I can offer. :-)
And if people start commenting about this movie below, and you haven't seen it--watch it first! No reading ahead. ;-)
