Great tip; I really enjoyed this. Kept me lost and guessing right until the end, which is a feeling I like.
My recommendation would be Ink
(only a 6.8 on IMDB but 100% from the handful of reviews on RT), made by a husband/wife team with no budget and no significant resources. It means the actors aren't the best, but they're good enough. The story hit me hard and the visuals are very striking, much like I'd imagine Alex Proyas or Terry Gilliam would wish to have done if they didn't have studio backing. This movie probably isn't for everyone, but it helps if:
-- You're a dad trying to juggle career and kids
-- You like the dark techno/noir style such as Gilliam or Proyas that I mentioned
-- You're okay being lost for the first hour, trusting the filmmaker will bring you through to the other side
-- You're okay figuring out a "twist" or two without it ruining the impact of the ending
I searched the thread but hadn't seen this listed yet, so thought I'd mention it. It's also available on Netflix streaming.
