These are all great movies that remain lesser known. You may have run across them, browsing the likes of Netflix or Prime, but you probably ignored them. Or you may just have heard of them, but dismissed them with an excuse like 'it's too old' or 'I don't know anyone in it' or 'I don't like the poster.' More people should pay attention to these films, old or new, gangster film or western, there's something for a lot of tastes here.
For this list, 'lesser known' is defined by having 500 ratings on less on user driven site Rate Your Music. 'Great' is defined solely by me.
