TFF is based on TOP TEN TUESDAY by The Broke and the Bookish. I always frown in a defeated manner when trying to come up with ten answers for TTT, so...

(I don't think I have mentioned before, well, more than once or twice anyway)
Please don't read the Wikipedia plot summaries if you plan to watch the movies. Promise?

This movie is like nothing you have ever seen before. All of the dialogue is sung...
"The film itself was a curious experiment in which all of the words were sung; Michel Legrand wrote the wall-to-wall score, which includes not only the famous main theme and other songs, but also Demy's sung dialogue, in the style of the lines used to link passages in opera. This style would seem to suggest a work of featherweight romanticism, but "Umbrellas" is unexpectedly sad and wise, a bittersweet reflection on the way true love sometimes does not (and perhaps should not) conquer all." - Roger Ebert
Here is the opening sequence. If you wait until the end you will hear the sung dialogue.

This is a documentary about the tiny original SHOPSINS RESTAURANT in NYC's Greenwich Village, and its hippie laid back owner Kenny and his life philosophies. It will make you laugh, cry, and think.

I think this is my favorite SciFi movie, EVER. It is from 1972.
Don't worry. The movie is not as corny as the trailer makes you think. Ha ha.

It is about angels, but not in an angelic way.

This poster might make the movie look commercial as hell, but it isn't (much) I promise you.
What are some of your off the beaten path films?
