Okay, I'll bite...

1. "Once were Warriors" - Awesome film from New Zealand about moder Maori life.

2. "Dark Blue World" - Interesting film about Czech ex-Pats flying for the Brits in WWII.

3. "When We Were Kings" - Great documentary on Da Rumble in Da Jungle.

4. "Sammy and Rosie Get Laid" - British story of love, redemption and loss.

5. "Sign of the Times" - Prince Concert Movie that's just phenomenal, what an amazing man/musician.

7. "The Mother" - Modern British family life exposed and not too nicely.

8. "Secrets and Lies" - See above but made about 10 years earlier.

9. "Waking Ned Devine" - "But I used the Fruity soap!"

10. "Ride With the Devil" - Overlooked Ang Lee classic of the Civil War.

I would agree with you on Secrets and Lies but it was nominated for 5 or so Academy awards so it hardly makes it underrated. I would have Schindler's List on the list because it won 7 Academy Awards but I felt it should have won 11 :D
