amore eroma has put together a little list of offbeat love to help you in your Valentine’s Day movie roaming. A mix of comedy, drama and horror, we try to provide a little something for everyone. Click the links for trailers.

If you have not seen these yet or have not seen them in a long time, check them out.

  • Down with Love (2003) – A fun little romp in a awesome 60s style a la Pillow Talk
  • Mad Love (1935) – The tale of a madman’s love and what he’ll do to get the girl.
  • Fun with Dick and Jane (1977 and 2005) – A story for our time – hard luck forces a couple to earn money the old fashion way. Robbery.
  • Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) – What would you do to forget a love that crushed your heart? How far would you go?
  • Benny & Joon (1993) – Delightful “popcorn” movie with Johnny Depp falling in love with the crazy Mary Stuart Masterson. Syrup sweet fun.
  • Ghost World (2001) – More talk about love than actual love, but dealing with love all the same. Awesome.
  • The Cook the Thief His Wife & Her Lover (1989) – Peter Greenway brings us his usual mix of beauty and madness. Disturbing and great.
  • ¡Átame! (1990).. aka Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! (USA) – Antonio Banderas in a tale of kidnapper love. Spanish goodness.
  • Ôdishon (1999)…aka “Audition” – The most disturbing of the group, this film will set your teeth grinding. Creepy fun.
  • Fa yeung nin wa (2000) …aka “In the Mood for Love”  (amore eroma review here) – The top of the top, this brooding love story is a must.
  • Annie Hall (1977) & Manhattan (1979) – Two greats from Woody Allen’s early period. Humor abounds.
  • Casablanca (1942) – A classic, this film is like a fine wine. It just keeps getting better. A fabulous film.
  • Rear Window (1954) – Hitchcock reminds us that curiosity killed the cat.
  • WALL·E (2008) – While I wish WALL-E kept the style of the first 40 minutes going, the movie is one of the best animated 3D films around.
  • 8 ½ (1963) (amore eroma review here) – Fellini. Period. Love of film. Love of risk. Love of women. Can a Director sort out his life and love before he looses everything?
