Really? 4 out of the 10 were nominated for Oscars in 2018!
(not that the oscars are a sign of quality)

1 had a Grand Prix prize at the Cannes film festival.
Another got best actor (Joaquin Phoenix) at Cannes

Not so sure they are obscure.

Re: Films to see in 2018

yeah, I haven't heard of any of them apart from the Phantom Thread and that is because I watched as part of my Oscar viewing.

New trailers:

Yes, really.

The oscars are a total waste of space that I avoid, just film buddys patting each other on the back, usually sticking their noses up at films the public love. Cannes is pretty much all obscure films.

Re: Films to see in 2018

The film festivals such as Cannes pretty much exist to give prominence to smaller, less-funded, independent film. For the most part, almost by definition, the massively popular films are blockbusters that don't need that attention. It's normal that general public awareness of who won what at Cannes is low.

Sure. Those films I listed aren't obscure though. They are some of the most talked about critically acclaimed films of the year so far.

If they don't get a general release I think they can be classified as obscure. There are a number on there which weren't going to be shown at a Cineworld multiplex for example. How many people pay attention to film festivals or the industry at large?

Ah right. Well if your general thinking is that anything that is not in a Cineworld cinema is obscure, then yes 99% of movies in the world are going to be obscure, including those released on the likes of Netflix and Amazon.

Re: Films to see in 2018

I do think films that don’t get a general release can be seen as relatively obscure. A lot of the country don’t have access to a cinema that shows indie films and you have to be a buff to go venturing for certain films.

It’s also why the oscars can help since outside of the Marvel/Star Wars lot then some films need that exposure to get attention. Three Billboards would have struggled without the Oscar buzz
