10 Overlooked Gems

A list of ten films that don't seem to have gathered the attention they deserve.

  • Exiled
  • Europa
  • Metropolitan
  • Magic
  • Marebito
  • Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade
  • Eden Log
  • Uzumaki
  • Versus
  • Crows Zero


  • Marebito is one of those films that you don't realise how amazing it is until it's finished. An extraordinary film.

  • If you liked Metropolitan you should definitely watch Last Days of Disco, if you haven't already. SO much better.

  • @Steve; Marebito is incredibly haunting, there isn't any film that is quite like it. I've been actually wanting to re-watch Marebito since making this list, might do so tonight.

    @Robert; I've seen and love both. I have a personal liking to Metropolitan more than Last Days..., but both are terrific. Was very happy to see both of 'em get BD upgrades from Criterion too.

  • I love Versus!.. come on, hell, zombies and swords.. a classic..

  • I have to disagree with Metropolitan, I think is a well regarded film, and like you Jake I am waiting for next week to pick up this in glorious 1080p Criterion Blu-ray..
    I don't know if you know but B&N has Criterion tittles at 50% off.. is a sweet deal if you ask me.

  • Versus is such an entertaining and good time to watch. Love it! Also wasn't sure about how well known Metropolitan is, so assumed it was fairly unknown. And yes, the B&N 50% off sale loves to empty my wallet, haha.

  • Magic is an excellent creepy flick. Great performances by some legendary actors.
