The Big Lebowski - underdog makes good, funny
Burn After Reading - daft and very funny
Dostana - Hilarious and long Bollywood film
Belleville Rendez-vous - French animation, almost no dialogue. Subtly lovely, with a cracking story.

A Beautiful Mind - Mayby for older people, or people that have expericed psychosis.
Donnie Darko - Recent favourite, Schizophrenia, and would appeal to younger audience.
Fight Club - Great acting from Edward Norton, depicts depression and MPD.

You should really go see Star Trek, it's great.

Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas Is one I would recommend as well.

It's not a movie, but Six Feet Under is an HBO series that's basically a 60 hour version of American Beauty. The series is created by the writer of it, Alan Ball, hence the similarities. If you found the characters in American Beauty interesting, the Fisher family will grow on you that much more.

I always enjoy The Edge & Phenomenon.
But I like movies & a lot of ones others dont. So...

Anthony Hopkins is the man though in my opinion.

If you like sci-fi you may like Dune . The version with Sting in it.
