Obscure or underseen favourites

On Jan 25, 2020, tired of negative film lists on Twitter, I asked people for "obscure [or] underseen films you adore and think more people should know about."

This was the result.

If your choice didn't make the list, it's maybe because I didn't think it was obscure or underseen enough (Citizen Kane, A Clockwork Orange, Quadrophenia!) I wasn't sure which version you meant (Bartleby, Equinox, Endless Night) or because you quote-tweeted me and I couldn't find you again.

Feel free to add your suggestions in the comments section.
