Top 10 Underrated Movies
10. The Assassination of the Outlaw Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford
The story is rather slow and cerebral which goes against the fast, and typically gun-slinging ways of the westerns of the 50s and 60s while also focusing more on the central character than is typical of the genre.
Sunshine is one of the really better sci-fi movies to come out in the last decade and yet unfortunately it never seems to get the recognition it deserves.
8. The Turin Horse
The final film by Bela Tarr and undoubtedly one of the best foreign films that one has personally ever seen. The story is articulate and simple since it only concerns a couple of characters and physically just has them do mundane activities for the majority of the screen time.
The story is extremely poignant and also realistic yet hilarious and heartwarming. This is a staggering achievement given that the film is about a young man who eventually finds out he has a rare type of cancer and may not live for much longer at all.
6. Killing Them Softly
Dominik does for the mainstream gangster genre with Killing Them Softly the similar thing he did for the western genre with The Assassination of the Outlaw Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.
5. Hard Eight
The central character, John, is just a down on his luck everyman character who is notably helped out by an older man named Sydney but things aren’t exactly as they seem at first.
4. 500 Days of Summer
The movie isn’t afraid at all to be blunt with its audience and this pays off in spades and in it’s effortless appeal. Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel have amazing chemistry between them together that gives the scenes where they’re together and the film itself a sense of utter enjoyment.
3. The Descendants
The Descendants is undeniably one of the best films of 2011 and one Alexander Payne’s grandest directorial efforts. Payne has been working under the radar for many years and he still has yet to get the recognition that he absolutely deserves.
2. The Perks of Being a Wallflower
The film provides a transparent sense of camaraderie that speaks for the nature of true friendship in general and the importance of having really good friends while growing up.
1. Perfume : the story of a murderer
Set in 18th century Paris, the engaging story of a man with an extraordinarily acute sense of smell takes a sharp and dark turn when his quest to create the ultimately beautiful fragrance leads to countless murder.
