Jim Jarmusch seems interesting. Ive seen Broken Flowers and am still not sure what I should think because of the ending, but I definitely laughed out loud a couple times. I will have to check out his other stuff. I consider this next suggestion the best movie I have ever seen so of course I think others will like it. I would love to hear what others think. And I know its free online. And see it subbed not dubbed.

Mind blowing and was the movie that completely inspired inception. You can do so much more with animation especially relating to the dream topic. Besides the whole dream idea, it can be pretty deep philosophically if you think about it that way. Very fast paced and you have to be on your game to be able to even understand it let alone catch all the amazing little things.
you should watch his psychological debut movie, Perfect Blue

Hmm, I've got a huge buffer on my passthepopcorn account, so maybe it's time to get some of these recommendations.

Which ones?

The significance of Millennium Actress is that it is inspired by the actress Setsuko Hara, one of the most, if not the most famous Japanese actress of the 20th century, although I would put Hideko Takamine (she's wonderful) along side her in terms of being famous. Most of Setsuko Hara's fame is likely derived from her performances in Yasujiro Ozu's wonderful movies, but I enjoyed her performances in Kurosawa's No Regrets for our Youth and The Idiot as well. I'm still looking forward to seeing her performances in three Mikio Naruse films, (those being Sound of the Mountain, Repast and Sudden Rain) as well as a few others by other directors.

Here's a fan made tribute to Setsuko comprised of clips of Kurosawa's No Regrets for our Youth: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hUGhS7t903c

And of course, here's a fan made tribute to Hideko Takamine: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSLKCLv-7bI

I just watched her for the third time in When a Woman Ascends the Stairs last night: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c57V3Owk30w

I can't wait to see her in other Mikio Naruse films, such as Yearning, Floating Clouds, Lightning, Flowing, and about ten others.

40 seconds of extraordinary choreography and cinematography (as is typical of Wong Kar-Wai): http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=5BF_LrRF3Q4#t=251s

Another amazing 30 seconds of a mesmerizing confluence of soundtrack and cinematography using slow motion. Turn the volume up: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=5BF_LrRF3Q4#t=1732s

I'm not as knowledgeable as many real film buffs are. But I like Viskingar och Rop, l'Avventura, Picnic at Hanging Rock, Blow-Up, and Ran. Those have stuck with me over the years.

I'm surprised nobody mentioned Grave of the Fireflies.

An amazingly good and heartbreaking story.

Most of those are Criterion films. Hence you might like a lot of the ones I've mentioned here.

A man from earth. I've been forcing people around me to see it for a couple of years and havent yet come across a person who wouldnt of have had a strong emotional reaction to it. I find it hard to understand how a movie of this magnitude never really got any attention.

I couldn't find such a film.
