L'acadie, l'Acadie (1971) - This film was absolutely amazing. Not only did it provide an amazing look into the history of the use of language in Canada in the Acadian territories, but was insightful about life choices as well.
Dead of Winter (1987) - This movie was messed up. A thriller that was half Vertigo, half Misery, I have to wonder why this film isn't brought up more.
