The Field with Richard Harris is one of my favorites and the best movie about Ireland I've seen.

 

The Art of the Steal is a fantastic documentary about the sad tale of the Barnes Collection in Philly

 

"The Field" is such a great film. Harris was phenomenal as The Bull. "Platoon" and "The Field" are probably the two best films Berenger ever did. 

 

Lots of good stuff so far. "Kalifornia" is well worth watching.

In the vein of low budget; I’ll throw out Rocky, Breakfast Club and Resevoir Dogs.

 

Rocky for grittiness and quintessential underdog story lines.

 

Breakfast club as it came out when I was of a similar age and made me think about cliques, social stratification and that underneath it all we’re not all that different.

 

Resevoir Dogs for dialog only

Reservoir Dogs, Fargo, Sopranos, The Big Lebowski, etc.

 

Everytime I see Steve Buscemi in something, I always wonder if he'll make it to the credits?

Dersu the Hunter. Kurasawa film. Awesome.

 

Also liked Dustin Hoffman's first big role - The Graduate. A contemporary sympathy, maybe.

Not sure about the budget but Kubrick's "A Clockwork Orange" jumps to mind.  It kind of freaked me out when I watched it again as an adult.  As a college kid I thought it was cool, as an adult I found it stomach-turning, creepy and frightening all at the same time.  The book was even worse as I recall.

This is one I remember only seeing once and I always remember it though I'm really not that much in to death.  Ruth Gordon at her best.

Glad someone else mentioned Box of Moonlight. I was starting to worry about my taste.

 

Not sure if it falls in this category but I really like Pulp Fiction.
