As he was directing high-profile studio efforts like "The Silence of the Lambs" and "Philadelphia," Jonathan Demme still maintained a side career as a documentarian. And if you’re a fan of minimalist and obscure documentaries, you have to watch Demme’s “Storefront Hitchcock,” which is about British singer-songwriter Robyn Hitchcock.

Francis Ford Coppola's career will always be defined primarily by his work in the '70s, but the most interesting work of his career is the trilogy of low-budget experiments he made from 2007 to 2011, "Youth Without Youth," "Tetro," and "Twixt." The experimental trilogy looks into the secrets of humanity, murder, and family melodrama.

Martin Scorsese is one of the best film directors of his generation but following his 1967 debut, "Who's That Knocking At My Door,” he made the gangster B-movie “Boxcar Bertha.” The movie may not be comparable to his other movies but it’s a rare opportunity to see a Scorsese crime film led by a woman.

Noah Baumbach's "Highball" is the least known film in Baumbach's filmography, and that's how Baumbach would like it to stay. "Highball," tells the loose story of a couple holding three disastrous parties in their apartment and Baumbach later said he didn't give himself enough time to properly finish shooting and editing the movie.

Before the success of “Lady Bird,” Great Gerwig’s directorial debut was 2008’s “Nights And Weekends.” The film can’t compare to Gerwig’s more contemporary works but its story about a long-distance relationship that goes sour is powerful enough to overcome its problems.
