Ended up watching the whole trilogy last night on this recc, thanks for the recommendation. Really enjoyed it, really reminded me of 90's Tarantino but it was Danish and original enough to be quite worthwhile.
Two films by Wes Anderson from the 90s. I figure most of the Lounge will have already heard of these, but they're really great movies and not well-known at all.
A movie about life in prison directed by Steve Buscemi, with an all-star cast including Willem Dafoe, Danny Trejo, and Edward Furlong. Highly recommend it, more realistic than many similar movies imo.
A movie about a group of anarchists growing up in Salt Lake City. I really connected with the characters in this movie and there are some really funny moments in this one. I was a bit disappointed that the movie didn't get more into the political aspects of anarchy, but that's not really what the movie is about.
A high school kid decides he is the second coming of Leon Trotsky, organizes a hunger strike at his father's factory, then eventually forms a student union at his school. I don't think most people realize how important collective bargaining rights are, there is almost nothing being said or done about them nowadays, but this movie hit a lot of important points about collective organizing and the apathy of the younger generation.
