Just about any entry from the "eccentric irish/english/scottish/welsh village" genre. My favorite that comes to mind is "Brassed Off" (plus it has some excellent music).

Three Seasons!

This is one of the very few movies made about and shot in "modern" Viet Nam that is not about war. The cinematography is stunning and the movie is as close to the "real" Viet Nam as I think a movie can get. (The only thing missing is the smells. ) Don't miss it!

My own understanding of "sleeper" is a movie that has disappointing sales initially, but later finds some loyal audience (though not necessarily enough to make a lot of profit). In a more generic sense it can be any movie that did poorly but we still love. Not, however, to be confused with a "guilty pleasure" movie, which would be an entirely different thread <hint>.

Could you define "guilty pleasure" before we hear of some movies that might be best left off the site?

Movies you're embarrassed (or at least know you should be) to admit enjoying.

favorite movie that most people haven't heard of? well I saw a really neat movie called "Run lola run" that was pretty much an unheard of (it was from Germany I think). it was a fast paced movie where a large amount of money is lost/stolen from a new gang member, and it's basically 3 different approx. 20 minute sections of how things could've unfolded after that . It was really interesting and I liked it a lot.

Re: Sleeper Movies

How about "Straight to Hell". Takes place in Mexico where some bank robbers' car breaks down in the middle of nowhere and they stumble upon a town of coffee addicts. Stars Joe Strummer, with cameos by Elvis Costello, Dennis Hopper and Grace Jones. Very quirky. Not sure if this qualifies as a sleeper, as it may still be napping, but check it out.
