    Fish Story - a Japanese film with several interconnected stories. Don't know how obscure this is really. One of my favourites anyway.

  3. That reminds me I just watched him give a rather droll performance in an episode of The Man From UNCLE.

  9. Saw both of these little known but very good movies.
    If you see William H. Macy standing next to you at a blackjack table move to another table !

    A favorite film of my wife and I. I've loved it ever since we saw it in the theater.

    One of the best westerns I've ever seen. The twist the knife suspense at the end as the couple starts to eat their dinner is like the best Hitchcock.

    This was filmed near to my parents' hometown. We walked around on the set when they weren't filming. It was one of the last times my Grandma and I were together. The plot has very little to do with the story, but Sean is great.
    The wordless opening is one of the best things--it shows the bone crushing hell that coal mining was in the 1860's. Mancini's score is marvelous.

    When we saw it at the time of release, the theater was almost deserted.

    Epilogue: when I finally showed it to my Irish wife, she wept buckets at the beginning--the music and the awful conditions on screen are moving.

    The Red Dog.

    Our Australian friends have probably seen it, but I don't even remember it being in theaters here.
    Tearjerker, but well done
