down-and-dirty-duck

Included as many trailers as possible.  Still images don’t cut it here.

Perfume: The Story of a Murderer

It’s not what you’re expecting.  Tom Tykwer is a great director, and he’s on here twice.

Enter the Void

Gaspar Noe on more than good will.  The Tibetan Book of the Dead brings psychedelic reincarnation into some kind of hallucinogenic existence.

Irreversible

Noe again, not for the faint of heart.  Backwards storytelling… and leave grandma at home.

Liquid Sky

Mostly to fuck with your head.  Has to be seen to be believed.

Dirty Duck

Trailers From Hell explains.

DirtyDuck1

Pink Floyd’s The Wall

Not sure if this movie damaged my brain.  Probably not.  You’re okay.  Go ahead: Trailer.

Brick2-6
Jacob’s Ladder

Review here.

Memento

Review here.

Existenz

I love this film,and it could be Cronenberg’s best mind messing.  Blew my mind when I saw it in the theater.  What an ending.

The Naked Lunch

Not for everyone, this is getting downright disturbing.

The Skin I Live In

Needed to include this because it’s such a damned good movie, and bonus WTF factor.

Time Crimes

Time travel anomalies, paradoxes? Review here.

Tetsuo the Iron Man

Like with Mulholland Drive, I swear there’s a logic there somewhere that can be articulated, given enough time and review.  But I don’t think most people are going to agree.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Manages to stay fun, heartfelt and somehow even real.

Mulholland Drive

Lynch finally got his insanity to work magic.  Not sure how or why, but Naomi Watts goes a long way toward keeping this thing fascinating.

Monty Python’s Meaning of Life

What more is there to say?

Lost Highway

An almost-there Lynch extravaganza.  Pretty hard to get out of your mind though.

American Psycho

Review here.

Strange Days

I am pissed at Bigelow’s turn to torture propaganda and jingoism, but Strange Days is trippy plus one.

A Scanner Darkly

Pure masterpiece.  Phillip K. Dick delivers.  Visuals are one long mindfuck all the way through.

Waking Life

Same types of visual effects as Scanner Darkly, but without that Phillip K. Dick level of storytelling.  Pretty interesting experience though.

Requiem for a Dream

Aronofsky shows us what he can do.

Spun

If you only see one movie about crystal meth in your life…

The Fountain

I certainly scratched my head more than once.

Run Lola Run

Review here.

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

Review here.

Brazil

Review here.

The Ninth Gate

Polanski does Satan. Review here.

Spirited Away

A kid’s movie!  From Japan.  Enough said.

Premonition (2004)

Scaring the crap out of you, and making you wonder if there are connections out there…  Are there?

A Boy and His Dog

It’s not Lassie.

The Thief the Cook His Wife and Her Lover

Sex, crime, murder… cannibalism?

Repo Man

“Let’s go do some crimes!”

Across the Universe

This movie feels like an alternative psychedelic universe that really existed somewhere in the 60’s.

Being John Malkovich

Charlie Kaufman is one weird dude.

Eyes Wide Shut

Included because it’s hard to get this underrated Kubrick film into other categories.

Plus, the overrated…

Overrated

Holy Motors

Senseless. Review.

The Holy Mountain

Out of their gourds, but too long and pointless to make much sense out of.  Reach exceeds grasp.

Salo

Disgusting.

Eraserhead

Unwatchable and boring.
