    I'm going to drop some foreign gems since I'm sure many are unaware:

    Irreversible: French flic, very sick and twisted. Very well done.

    A Prophet: French film about gangsters and jail

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Carlos: Story of Carlos the Jackal (left wing terrorist)

    Arn: Scandanavian film about the Knights Templar

    I also highly recommend the Swedish version of the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo Trilogy:

    Most if not all are on Netflix.

    A few British gang related flicks I've watched recently, good movies.

    Ill Manors (directed/produced by Plan B who is a British musician - soul/hip hop/electronic) probably the best of the bunch also a recent movie so quality production.

    Kidulthood - older movie in the same mold, good watch.

    Adulthood - sequel to the above, decent watch although suffers from being a sequel for sure.

    Primer (2004) is a low budget movie about two friends who discover a possibility to travel back in time.
    If you're into time traveling films, this one's really gonna give you some headaches. And unless you're a math geek, chances are slim you'll figure out what's going on after seeing it just once. Really mind challenging!

    This reminds me. Harry Brown is an awesome film in the same vein as these 3 films. Plus Ben Drews in it too! and it pretty much was brought to life in the Tottenham riots the other year. I dunno why it popped into my head but I'd recommend a movie called Cop Land to anyone too. Nobody ever seems to mention that movie but it has Stallone, DeNiro, Ray Liotta and all these big names in. Stallone actually packed on a load of weight for the role and puts in a (rare) good performance

    i'm a fan of asian flicks, kung-fu, horror, sci-fi and such, here's some of my faves:

    THE HOST (the S.Korean movie, not the U.S. sh*tstain flick)
