Fresh (1994) Official Trailer - Samuel L. Jackson Movie HD https://youtu.be/a_9hTnNErbo
Michael, nicknamed Fresh (portrayed by Sean Nelson), is a 12-year-old kid running drugs for gangsters, notably Esteban (Giancarlo Esposito). Inspired by the chess lessons of his father, an alcoholic speed-chess master (Samuel L. Jackson), Fresh devises and executes a brilliant plan to extricate himself and his drug-addicted sister (N'Bushe Wright) from their hopeless lives. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fresh_(1994_film)

The plan was an intricate frame-up where Fresh incites all the hood gangsters and drug dealer employers around him to kill each other with the last one brilliantly framed and fed to the police.

Not sure how obscure it is, but Primer probably takes my number-fucking-one for more than one category. Definitely the best movie ever made on a budget of like 15k USD.

Yes, it's complicated as hell, maybe a little convoluted, but it actually does make perfect sense and the mechanics employed are never broken.

Watch it, watch it again, watch it some more.

  Sorcerer is my favorite Friedkin film. Four desperate men must travel 200 miles through the jungle to deliver leaking TNT to a burning oil well. The prize: enough money to escape their miserable lives.

And arguably, it's debut and box-office failure a month after Star Wars came out marks the end of the period when American film studios were making "smart films" versus puerile blockbusters

  And what is a critically underrated war film, and an anti-war film at that, Sam Peckinpah's Cross of Iron.

Incredible quality, I wasn't aware there are people capable of filming such war movies.

Cross of Iron was fucking amazing.

It is called "dramatizing", for your general education. Some stories don't need it.

>An investigation by Soviet authorities in 1948, since declassified, revealed that the description of the events was not accurate. Not all the twenty eight were killed — six of the soldiers were still alive. One of them was arrested in 1947 on charges of high treason and confessed to having “voluntarily” surrendered to German troops and later joined a German police force. The findings were kept secret, and the Twenty-Eight Guardsmen were considered national heroes.

>Russian culture minister Vladimir Medinsky praised the planned release of the film, telling the upper chamber of Russia's parliament that the production reflected the country's interest in patriotic films. Referencing criticism over the historical accuracy of the Soviet legend that formed the basis of the movie, he stated that the story is "a sacred legend that shouldn't be interfered with. People that do that are filthy scum."

Another Enemy at the Gates 2 (2013) I see.

Seriously, decades of observing butthurt Europeans convinced me that this sort stupidity is irredeemable and completely incurable. It is an evolutionary stalemate. And I'm not even going to cover American point of view, since usually they are not sure which side they really fought in this war.

  Naturally, with great efforts of "winners" of Cold War, every film created east of Berlin since the beginning of times is an obscure one.

>why don't you like this zack snyder snorefest
I wonder why. Is it because nobody mentioned The Glorious American Forces? Or maybe it is because Russians aren't portrayed as a horde of drunk barbarians? Or maybe because European pride was hurt in some way? No, I think, the latter excuse is pretty lame.

To be honest, personally I'm not too concerned about the film. I do not go to theaters - hardly there are any films worth my money. I'm not a fan of modern cinematography. Nor I'm a fan of modern portrayal of war in movies and games - the best war movies are the ones that are most anti-war in their nature. But you people... You people are the reason this is necessary.
