18 Zuckerbaby (Sugarbaby)

Tragic-comic low-budget film with excellent German actress Marianne Saegebrecht.

19 Woyzeck

Werner Herzog - Movie with arguably Klaus Kinski's best performance of his life.

20 Bagdad Cafe

Strangely forgotten gem from 1988. Although, it was a minor success at the US-box office and won several awards, it is rarely shown or mentioned these days. A large Bavarian woman (Marianne Saegebrecht) arrives at a road cafe in the middle of a desert in the States and turns slowly everybody's lives around. Hilarious off-beat comedy that also features Jack Palance. A great soundtrack includes 'Calling you' by Jevetta Steele which was even nominated for an Oscar for best music and best original song. A must-see movie for comedy-fans.
