I have seen none of those, so they are way under the radar for me.

Ive almost watched Lost City of Z but it's 2.5+ hours.

I don't know if I would consider Only the Brave and Collosal as under radar movies, they had wide releases. Both were excellent.

I have seen about half or a little more on this list. Will give some of the dramas a chance I guess. I hate dramas.

Just watched the Florida Project. The little girl in this movie is amazing. It's so funny hearing 6 yr olds yelling things like shit and bitch. Good story although not a ton happens. I think the girl stole the show

I would suggest not watching The Little Hours... I didn't find it very entertaining. I don't think you'd like it, but I have been wrong before. I would strongly suggest Lost City of Z for you.

I thought Gifted and Jungle were excellent films, that I don't remember being talked about very much.

I liked gifted too. Is Jungle the Radcliffe one? I don't think that had a theatrical release?

Thanks for Lost City of Z recommendation. I'll try watching that soon

Yeah, its the Daniel Radcliffe movie. I don't know if it did or not. I remember seeing light commercial pressence over the summer for it. But from what I remember of the trailer, they seemed to market it as a thriller... its not. Its a survival movie. Really well done, I thought.

You could do a Amazon Jungle double header... Lost City of Z and Jungle are about getting lost in the Amazon
