Is there a movie or genre of film you like that no one seems to get, or you just assume no one will seem to get? Forget the mainstream stuff that is easily liked by others but maybe your girlfriend/boyfriend might not be in to. I'm talking about a lesser known film that you love but you have no one to talk with about it because no one gets it but you?
For me, I have two in mind: Turkish Delight (1973), and Atanarjuat (2000) - both foreign films to me, and just for that fact, none of my friends or family have or will watch them and truly appreciate the story or filmmaking of either.
What are yours?

I like quite a few relatively obscure films, but I have especially noted the work of director Bernardo Bertolucci as being beautifully filmed stories. His use of lighting, color, and a great eye for/appreciation of natural light's interplay with shadow and landscape adds real depth and timelessness to his works, which include the classics Last Tango In Paris and The Last Emperor, as well as slightly more obscure films such as The Sheltering Sky, Little Buddha, and Stealing Beauty. All of which are true works of art in varying ways. He's kind of like a less disturbing version of Stanley Kubrick, and is rightly considered a true master.1
