Definitely agree on The Dish and Series 7. I'm gonna rent Panic one of these days, with you, jim, and jblack recommending it so much, I'm very tempted.

Would you consider Hedwig to be a little seen film? Cuz I remember you liking it a lot.

Hey, AAA! Well, my cutoff is currently less than 2000 votes on IMDB. It's very possible that Hedwig had much less when I first saw it but right now it's around 3500 votes. However, I definitely think enough people have NOT seen it! :-) I'll give it serious consideration for adding it to this list.

I did not like the Tao of Steve,I don't know why but it did not have any effect on me.

I enjoyed 101 Reykjavík, 24 Hour Party People, Before Night Falls and Chopper.

Would you like me to add the following films onto my Hidden Gems list as they have fewer than 450?
Cinemania
The Bread, My Sweet
Born Romantic

Sure, if you like! :-) I didn't realize there were any more still under your threshold.

Dog Soldiers is one of my favorite guilty pleasures, as far as films go.
