    I'm not exactly sure what a "non-mainstream" film is...but a few movies I like that i guess you're referring to would be...

    Sunshine
    The Warrior
    Moon
    Gattaca
    Jackie Brown

    ...i mean i could start listing movies non stop, i guess i'd just have to understand what exactly you mean by non-mainstream.

    Non main stream probably means movies that aren't hyped by the media if I had to guess anything. Twilight, Harry Potter, LOTR and stuff like that is hyped.

    Made in Heaven with Timothy Hutton and Kelly McGillis is one of my favorites. It never got the praise it deserved.

    So she's praying...To Justin Timberlake apparently

    I kind of figured he meant films that fell outside of your typical holiday fair or summer blockbusters...but it just seemed weird to me as "non mainstream" movies could literally mean like underground movies, stuff that doesn't go to the theater, stuff like that. In that case, it's like a whole other realm of film!

    'Tyrannosaur' directed by Paddy Considine. A British movie about domestic abuse that is harrowing to watch but has some absolutely stunning performances in it.

    "CH:OS:EN" is an excellent 6-part Crackle exclusive mini-movie. I stumbled across it this afternoon prior to the Miami v Clemson basketball game and I couldn't stop watching it. Check it out when you get a chance.
