Movie meme

's Been a while since I meem'd, so.....

Rules:
Name three movies that you enjoy, which are (as far as you know) not well known.
Then tag 6 friends.

1. Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.
No idea if it's well known outside my circle of friends. I love it in any case. From the time when Guy Ritchie didn't have his nuts twisted by Madonna. This movie is all about Murphy's Law. Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong. Dead funny.

2. Le Huitième Jour (The Eighth Day)
French movie about a guy who accidently kills the pet of a man with Down's Syndrome who walked out of his care center. Feeling guilty, the guy takes the man into his house and the simple views of the man help the guy find a happier life. Has the same feel-good quality that Amélie has, though a bit more down-to-earth.

3. Interstella 5555 (The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem)
Take the full "Discovery" album by Daft Punk and use that as a soundtrack to an anime that tells a story about kidnapped alien musicians forced to become superstars on Earth. No dialog, just the music. If you remember the videoclips to "One More Time" or "Aerodynamic" you know what I'm talking about. '5555' tells the entire story. If you like anime and/or electro, this is a must-see with volume up to 11. A succesfull experiment if you ask me.

Tag. You're it.

Snatch was better than Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels... also done by Guy Ritchie with a similar concept.
