Enough with the best-of lists featuring movies with $100 million budgets and all-star casts. There are plenty of great movies you probably missed this year, either because they were in and out of theaters in five minutes, or, more likely, because they had about $25 to spend on marketing. Here are the best of those lesser seen films. Seek them out on video, because you live in New York City, and you don't have to limit yourself to watching the same movies they get in Des Moines.
6. LITTLE FISH Directed by Rowan Woods
"Lord of the Rings" King and Queen of Elf-land (Hugo Weaving and Cate Blanchett) retire to a sun-scorched Australian suburban hell in this pop art junkie drama. It's usually best to steer clear of movies in which actors play smack addicts, but these two justify their big paychecks as tormented, scarred souls trying to find some peace from the screaming junk monkeys on their backs.
