All of the Pink Panther movies. Must be Peter Sellers, no Steve Martin.

Eddie and the Cruisers
The Commitments
The Party
Life of Brian
Lots of Peter Sellers films to watch---starting with "The Mouse That Roared" thru "Dr. Strangelove".
How could I have forgotten "The Commitments"? Add in "Brassed Off" and "Boys and Girl From County Cork".

Been binge watching Netflix at night since the wife is out of work. It came out 2013 about KGB spies living next door to us as neighbors unseen. Its not a family movie but it is, in a harsh sort of way.
At first I wasnt too intrigued but it got me a few episodes in.

This video clip ruins the whole thing (not the show, just them in real life changes things) in a way because they are actually married in real life and quite in love.

I’ll chip in with a few of my choices I think are worth a go (hopefully not repeating if I’ve missed one)

Mystic River - A Clint Eastwood directorial effort which is a captivating drama about friends from a small town

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood - Tarantino’s newest effort which sees Leonardo DiCaprio in fine form as a ageing actor who realises he’s at the end of stardom and his friend, Brad Pitt, his faithful stuntman. Very funny in some parts and suitably odd in others. Long though!

The Fugitive - A classic, no more needs to be said

Dead Mans Shoes - A dark film which you probably need to be in the right frame of mind for, however, it is a fantastic film which will have you gripped

In the Loop - A spin of from the British TV show The Thick of It. Political comedy which has some really funny moments especially from the character Malcolm Tuckers expletive filled put downs.

Fargo - Crime drama in the inimitable Coen Brothers style. The ideal mix of brooding scenes and perfectly timed comedy.

High Fidelity - Any music lover can relate to this film in someway and I’m sure we have all been to a record store where some very familiar happenings ring bells.

Shaun of the Dead - Funniest zombie film I think there is.

Ip Man - A fantastic Kung fu laden film!

John Wick - If you read the synopsis of this film it sounds so second rate. I will tell you now, this is a brilliantly put together action movie which ticks all the boxes you could want from one. Keanu Reeves is excellent and I believe does all his own stunts which makes it even more of a fun watch!

Phew! Sorry that went on a bit!

@wabash slim , re: your OP, I'd recommend:

3 US outsiders I'm considering to revisit:
Bubba Ho-Tep (Don Coscarelli)
Clerks (Kevin Smith)
Masked And Anonymous (Larry Charles, co-written by Bob Dylan)

1 contemporary Egyptian movie:
The Nile Hilton Incident (Tarik Saleh)

1 contemporary Iranian movie (if it's not under embargo for you in the US):
Taxi Teheran (Jafar Panahi).
