Unique movies you should try

As a companion to my writeup on the film canon, I made this list of 32 unique movies worth trying. I’m (mostly) not gonna waste my finger-breath on stuff already in the canon. If you actually want to use this as a film guide, I’d go through TSPDT in order, and for every 2 films on TSPDT, watch one of these. And if it sucks… hit da bricks!. David Sims at The Atlantic watches thousands more films than me, and he had a similar idea. Check it out.

I only love a few of these movies unconditionally, but each has something to say and a unique way of saying it. This list is also on IMDB.
