Default Best movie that I have not seen?

Star Wars was good, Indiana Jones was good, Pulp Fiction was good but we have all seen those. What is a good movie that we probably have not seen?

I would say one of my favorites that wasn't really popular was Let It Ride (can't find any good trailers on youtube):




Edit:
Because I am working night shift tomorrow and have nothing better to do all night I compiled a list of the movies that have been suggested so far (12/20/10 @ 11PM EST):

13th Floor.
13th Warrior

Yeah, the uncut Youtube one is awesome.

EDIT: Link fail. Might have to figure out how to do this sometime.

Here's the link address.

That said, this is NOT on the "Best you have never seen" list, but was entertaining.

The movie "Fresh".
This is one of my fav's that not many people have seen before. Little kid is a drug dealer who realizes he doesn't want to grow up like that. Samuel Jackson is his bum dad who he plays chess with but seems to have little connection with. Jackson is teaching him how life is a game of chess. The rest goes from there, but it's very cool how the director/writer use the game of chess as a story board for the movie.

Definitely not a typical gangster in the projects movie at all. Very good drama.
