Sleeper Double Features
List creator: underdog
Created on: March 11, 2003 - 3:08 PM PST
Description: These two-fers go together like love & marriage, a horse and carriage, peanut butter and jelly, Donny and Marie, er, well you get the drift. All were carefully chosen to avoid being too obvious (no sequels or remakes) or cute (no Titanic plus Poseidon).

I Know Where I'm Going! (Criterion Collection) (1945)
Not Rated
  Charming romance about a young lass betrothed to a rich old man she's never met heads to a remote Scottish isle to wed him. But complications arise when she meets a dashing young local lad. Beautifully filmed. See it with....
Local Hero (1983)
  ...another lovely Scotland-set comedy. Full o'surprises and quirky but real characters, this often hilarious movie proved that comedy could be gentle and, like the other film, lyrical, without being schmaltzy.
Palookaville (1995)
  This film about losers is a winner, one of those little movies that got lost in the cracks. Heist comedy storyline will go great with...
Big Deal on Madonna Street (Criterion Collection) (1958)
Not Rated
  ...this wonderful, often hilarious Italian caper classic, the granddaddy of all bungled caper flicks. Was remade less effectively as "Crackers," and "Welcome to Collinwood"
East Is East (1998)
  Touching and funny depiction of Pakistani family in the UK suffering from a serious generation gap...
Beautiful People (1998)
  ...AND this great, darkly funny film about several overlapping families including Bosnian refugees and soon-to-be reformed racists uneasily mixing in the UK
Cannibal! The Musical: 13th Anniversary Edition (1996)
  Certainly one of the better entrants in the vast IndieMusicalComedyHorror genre, as done up by the creators of South Park before they became (in)famous, goes well with....
Happiness of the Katakuris (2001)
  ...this You Have To See it To Believe It insta-cult classic, from the very disturbed Japanese auteur T. Miike, a very surreal musical is a long way from The Sound of Music (and yet, not that far in a twisted kinda way)
Shower (1999)
  Another deceptively simple film from China that sneaks up on you; captivates with its humorous depiction of the generation gap, with its assortment of delightfully eccentric characters, and mourns the passing of a tradition in favor of "progress." And:
Not One Less (1999)
  Zhang Yimou's sly film about a 13 year old girl who becomes a teacher in a rural village in China. Like Shower, it sneaks up on you, starting slowly until you catch the rhythm and find yourself utterly moved.
Battle Royale (2001)
  And for the sick and twisted among you... this (jet)black comedy-cum-horror-slash suspense film is one you won't soon forget. A brilliant satire of both reality TV and modern society's attempts to handle teenage rebellion. And while you're feeling it, try
Series 7: The Contenders (2001)
  ...which is just as dark, sick and twisted a take on reality TV gone horribly awry. Once really scary is how unfarfetched the premise is starting to seem. (Thank you Fox TV)
The Fast Runner(Atanarjuat) (2001)
  For a rousing double-header focused on native peoples, try this unforgettably unique cinematic experience, an Inuit adventure film, coupled with...
Rabbit-Proof Fence (2002)
  this touching and exciting film from Down Under about a very bad chapter in Aussie history, and the three young aboriginal girls who said "enough." Their escape is hard to believe, and what's more, it really happened. Don't miss either of these films.
Dream With the Fishes (1997)
  Male bonding road movies seem like a dime a dozen, but these two stand out for their sensitivity mixed with dark humor. Finn Taylor's indie movie boasts some great NorCal location photography and a winning performance from Brad Hunt.
The Last Detail (1973)
  and....One of my favorite Jack Nicholson movies is much better and more sympathetic than it could've been in lesser hands (it was written by Robert "Chinatown" Towne)
