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.
Noe again, not for the faint of heart. Backwards storytelling… and leave grandma at home.
Mostly to fuck with your head. Has to be seen to be believed.
Trailers From Hell explains.
Pink Floyd’s The Wall
Not sure if this movie damaged my brain. Probably not. You’re okay. Go ahead: Trailer.
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 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.
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?
An almost-there Lynch extravaganza. Pretty hard to get out of your mind though.
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.
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.
If you only see one movie about crystal meth in your life…
I certainly scratched my head more than once.
Run Lola Run
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
The Ninth Gate
Polanski does Satan. Review here.
A kid’s movie! From Japan. Enough said.
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?
“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…
The Holy Mountain
Out of their gourds, but too long and pointless to make much sense out of. Reach exceeds grasp.
Unwatchable and boring.
