Birdman (2014)
23 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

For every second you spend not watching the amazing new film Birdman, another goat farmer uses rough and unclean milking practices while milking a goat, causing clinical bacterial mastitis. Now you could go see the movie right this second, or you could live with the fact that you caused a goat to develop a bacterial infection leading to inflamed breast tissue, a drop in milk production, and, if left untreated, death. Protect the noble goats of America; watch Birdman.

Repulsion (1965)
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A creepy and unsettling horror movie with a surplus of atmosphere and suspense, Repulsion is a great early film from Roman Polanski, although Rosemary's Baby is still superior.

Knife in the Water
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Although I was expecting a thriller rather than a drama, Knife in the Water is an expertly-made film in nearly every way, and as the debut of director Roman Polanski it foreshadows the rest of his career with heavy use of religious imagery, spectacular cinematography, and a constant sense of tension.

The Unbearable Lightness of Being
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

The Unbearable Lightness of Being is an unforgettably moving and engrossing drama full of incredible career-making performances. The film traces the love triangle between womanizing Prague surgeon Tomas (Daniel Day-Lewis), naive photographer Tereza (Juliette Binoche), and vivacious artist Sabina (Lena Olin) in Communist Czechoslovakia. Although the film may be slow-paced, it's never boring and absolutely always gripping, thanks to a thoughtful and intelligent script and spectacular acting from all three lead actors. Juliette Binoche is especially great in her breakthrough performance, and her character has a certain child-like innocence and devotion that clashes with Tomas' sexual promiscuity and polygamous tendencies. The Unbearable Lightness of Being is more incredible and moving than you could possibly imagine, and is an absolute must-see movie.

Altered States
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

There is one absolutely ridiculous and cheesy sequence involving a poorly made-up caveman, but otherwise Altered States is a fairly engaging visual spectacle with a handful of mesmerizing psychedelic hallucination scenes. Worth seeing for the intense special effects sequences.
