Angst (1983)
One of Gaspar Noe's (I Stand Alone, Irreversible, Enter the Void) favorite films of all time and a huge influence on him as a filmmaker. Magnificently shot, extremely difficult to watch at times and overall, fanfuckingtastic.

James Spader and Inigo Montoya aka Mandy Patinkin get involved in a poker game and then that's when things get REALLY unpredictable and eerie. Spader puts in the most transformational performances of his career and the atmosphere is one that is uniquely haunting.

One of the best horror/comedy flicks ever. Deserves to be mentioned alongside Evil Dead 2 and Dead Alive. "Send more paramedics."

Felidae (1994)
This is a Saturday morning cartoon style animated film but telling the story of a dark n' graphic murder mystery all involving...CATS! From Germany with subtitles. The Aristocats on meth.

One of the greatest artsy fartsy films I've ever seen and featuring the greatest performance by a child, Ana Torrent, that I've definitely ever seen. Just a stunning film in every imaginable way.

Following in the footsteps of The Spirit of the Beehive is this, another brilliant entry into the childhood horror sub-genre. Some damn good jump scares and very impressive directing. Guillermo Del Toro definitely saw this before he made Pan's Labyrinth.

The type of film where you just grimace and brace for impact like you're almost in a car crash the whole time and then as the credits roll you quietly let out, "...just fuck."

It's basically a remake of Carrie but instead of Sissy Spacek, it's Clint Howard.

And instead of high school, it's a military reform school.

And instead of god given telekinetic powers, it's powers bestowed upon Clint by a demonic computer possessed by the soul of Night Court star Richard Moll aka Bull.

Awesome n' hilarious supernatural meets technological revenge trash.

It gives off that typical pretentious art house flick vibe but there is so much more life, passion, and testicular filmmmaking ambition in this movie that it can't be lumped in with all those other bores. So many spectacular moments in this thing.

Small city melodrama that gets a little dark and provides a bunch of cool, memorable characters. Dean Martin and Shirley MacLaine shine.

Not every flick here is a top to bottom masterpiece (well some are dammit) but I will guarantee you that every flick is filled with an OH SHIT moment or two or strives for something big n' bold n' ballsy or will be branded into your brain until the very day you die. Or just all 3. Enjoy ya rat basta'ds!

Also, some are just amazing some are just underrated some are just obscure and some are just bizarre but most of the time there's a little mix n matching crossover going on but don't expect each flick to meet all four criteria. All I know is all these flicks just need more love.

Still gotta work on descriptions for most of the movies.

*EDIT* I am one lazy son of a dumbass. I shall do them one day. One glorious non-dumbass day.

So many movies to see!
Posted: 7 years, 5 months ago at May 17 11:49
I have seen only 6 of them (Tirez sur le pianiste, Red Rock West, 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days, Year of the dragon, Lenny, War of the roses) but all of them are good.

As usual, an impressive selection of good and/or weird flicks!

Phew, epic set of lists, all the kind of stuff I love. You've reminded me of loads of films I've been wanting to see, and put me onto a ton of new ones. Thanks a lot!

I have seen '13 Tzameti' and it is indeed pretty good!

Only seen 7 of these so far, but of those not a stinker in the bunch. A number of titles here I've been meaning to get around to, and lots I've never heard of. Love these lists!

"Fires on the Plain" was EXCELLENT, Ichikawa strikes GOLD again! Thanks for cluing me in to it. -Hahaha, I had a hard time following "Shoot the Piano Player", that's some wacky wacky cinema...

The Music of Chance! And Paperhouse isn't just some weird dream I had. Both on the top of my list of movies I wished I'd stolen from a video store in the 90s cause now you can't find them anywhere.
