What are some really great obscure movies to watch?

Question by ♥Love and Life♥: What are some really great obscure movies to watch?
I am in a movie watching mood.
I love anything from “80’s” movies, to modern comedies, and those movies that are really strange and out there.
The only movies I don’t really like are gore, western-style films, and chick flicks.
Some movies I have really enjoyed are V for Vendetta and 500 Days of Summer for reference.

    I love obscure and “out there” films as well and I have got plenty of good ones you will love.

    Waking Life directed by Richard Linklater. It’s about a young man who speaks will all these interesting, intelligent, thoughtful people who expand his views on life and reality in general.

    Fantastic Planet directed by Rene Laloux, is an animated french surreal science fiction film that deals with human beings living on an alien world inhabited by highly advanced, giant, blue-skinned humanoids known as Traags, to whom human beings are literally like insects in comparison. Very thought provoking film about human beings and our true place in the Universe.

    Picnic at Hanging Rock directed by Peter Weir, is weird atmospheric mystery film set in Australia at the turn of the 20th century. It focuses on the bizarre events which transpire after a group of schoolgirls go missing, seemingly compelled by some unknown force, during a visit to the titular Hanging Rock.

    The White Ribbon directed by Michael Haneke, focuses on a small village in Northern Germany prior to the first world war. It is a very mysterious film, shot in black and white, that focuses on unexplained catastrophes and events that seem to be connected to the “innocent” children of the village, who live under the guidance of hypocritical, oppressive, religious, authoritarian adults.

    Little Otik directed by Jan Svankmajer, a Czech surrealist film that follows several peoples reactions to a stump which resembles a human baby that seems to come to life under the care of two childless parents.

    Hope these films helped!
