I enjoy getting away from over-the-top production and repetitive plot lines in movies, so every now and then I will check out an indie film. I haven't seen near as many as I'd like to, but the ones I've seen lately have been very enjoyable... special effects and well-known actors don't always make the best films. I wanted to suggest a few indies and see what some of you might recommend. Pretty much all of these have come out in the past 3 years or so... I can't seem to remember any that have been around longer. "Pieces of April" "Whale Rider" "Donnie Darko" "Thirteen" "Rabbit-Proof Fence" "21 Grams" (also heard that "Amores Perros" was good -- same director) "Lost in Translation" "Requiem for a Dream" "Memento"
