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"

I did see "Slackers," though I can't say for sure if it was actually "good." Kind of one of those where you say "OK" after it's over. ;)

Run Lola Run - has become fairly popular, but still indie :) even if it wasn't great (which it is) I would suggest it just for the soundtrack

it was really good, not sure if it was based off the colorado shootings or just a movie like what happened there. It was filmed great.. very limited but pick it up if you can find it..

Permenant Midnight was awesome, just beware that even though it has Ben Stiller, it is not a comedy.

animated French movie from around 1973. Subtitled but very interesting. Worth a rent.

I loved the film, found it very funny when in Canada they classified it under porno, before even watching it.

Also Hanif khareshi: My beautiful laundrette, Budha of Sudurbia. <==think it was same as MBL, so long since I watched it.
