The top 30 independent films of the last 30 years

IFTA Picks the top 30 Independent Films of the Last 30 Years I'm shocked some of these are considered independent films.

The 80s: I've seen: Blue Velvet and Dances With Wolves. Have yet to see: Amadeus, Das Boot (The Boat), Gandhi, My Left Foot, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Platoon, sex, lies, and videotape, The Terminator, The Killing Fields, The Last Emperor, and The Toxic Avenger.

The 90s: Seen: Braveheart, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Fargo, Four Weddings and a Funeral, Life Is Beautiful, Reservoir Dogs, The Silence of the Lambs, The Usual Suspects, Good Will Hunting (ugh), and Trainspotting. Have yet to see: Pulp Fiction, Basic Instinct, and Where the Day Takes You (never heard of that one.)

The 00s: Seen: Brokeback Mountain, Crash (ugh), The Hurt Locker, Inglourious Basterds, Juno, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (how is that independent?), Monster, Slumdog Millionaire, and Memento. Have yet to see: Million Dollar Baby, The Pianist, Bowling for Columbine, and Twilight. Wait... WHAT?!? One of these things is not like the others...
