The Movie: The big-screen biopic of acerbic comic-book writer Harvey Pekar, played here with aplomb by Paul Giamatti.
A huge hit at the festival, the film won the Grand Jury Prize.
After Sundance: The film was also recognized at Cannes, before garnering an Oscar nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay.
The heartfelt portrayal of Pekar remains one of Giamatti’s most celebrated roles.

Total Film have yet to even acknowledge the incredible documentary "Stranded: I've come from a plane that crashed on the mountains". It was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance in 2008.

"Garden State" so high? Really? That film was the most pretentiously naval-gazing pile of boring b*llocks I've ever seen.

Little known fact: This movie was made so that all the profits could be used to make Repo: The Genetic Opera. I do believe all the hard work payed off for him :)

This is only my opinion, but i cannot believe that "Another Earth" and "Run Lola Run" aren't on this list.
