There are many cult classics I’ve seen and loved, and many more that I’ll never see because they’re way too dark and twisted for my taste. These three films that have earned small but devoted fans are on my to-watch list.
If you’ve seen them, be sure and tell me what you think in comments!
This 1999 film starring Ed Norton, Brad Pitt, and Helena Bonham Carter (whom I love) is widely regarded as being better than the book it’s based on, but I’m leery of the violence and expect to spend a big chunk of this movie covering my eyes.
I loved director Michael Gondry’s first film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and want to see this 2006 follow-up, which is similarly surreal, taking place largely in the head of the main character.
I’ve heard amazing things about this 2009 Drew Barrymore/Jessica Lange re-imagining of the original 1975 documentary about the eccentric, reclusive New York socialites “Big Edie” and “Little Edie” Bouvier Beale.
Have you seen these movies? Do you think I’d love them or hate them? Tell me about it in comments.
