Not sure exactly what constitutes obscure but
The earrings of madame de
The Scarlet Empress
all spring to mind
Btw I was delighted to see Darkstar mentioned- how could I have forgotten seeing that?
And though it was big when released in 1988, no-one remembers 'Young Einstein' so it now counts as obscure. A very silly film, which is why I like it.
Ko to tamo pevo (Who's that singing over there?) - Serbian comedy/character study centered around a bus trip to Belgrade on April 5th 1941, one day before the Nazi invasion of Yugoslavia.
The King is Alive - A group of tourists stranded in the Namibian desert stage a production of King Lear.
Prof. Chaos 2 - Electric Boogaloo
The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner
- caught this on TV when off school sick as a kid - really struck a chord
- this is the ideal film to curl up with on the sofa when it's raining out and you've got a nice big mug of tea and a nice solid bit of toast.
Old Boy - should be obscure, most Korean films are - but I looked it up after Hoops used the Soundtrack at Scalford a couple of years ago, and it is a work of genius.
