What are some of the great but lesser-known films I've missed out on in the past, say, five to ten years?

I've recently got my hands on some great stuff - French horror like Martyrs and Inside, the excellent Spanish original of REC, the truly depressing documentary Darwin's Nightmare, the hilarious British films In The Loop and Four Lions, fun but completely unknown American thrillers like, well, Unknown and A Perfect Getaway. On and on it goes.
But I'm starting to scrape the bottom and am afraid I've missed a turn somewhere. Can you recommend me some great, lesser-known stuff, fictional or not, from the past couple of half-decades? Mainly I've been finding films I like and then seeing what else Amazon recommends, or checking out "boutique" award winners via Wikipedia, so if you don't have a specific film to recommend then I'd love to hear about any other online resources.
Like I say, I'm up for just about anything. Thrillers, horror, action, documentaries, comedy. Stuff that you sit back afterwards and think "I'm glad I watched that" rather than "Boy that was a waste of two hours".
Have at thee!
