Movies not directly associated to the writings of Kafka but marked by a senseless, disorienting, often nightmareshly complex quality that is Kafka's unmistakeable trademark. The list remains under development.

Most David Lynch movies would fit here, I guess.

I beg to differ. They are both surrealists - even absurdists - but there is a huge difference in style and content between the two. Kafkaesque just doesen't ring Lynch in my ears. And vice versa.

"Jacob's Ladder" should be on the list.

Havent seen it but maybe "Johnny Got His Gun (1971)"?

No, not Johnny Got His Gun. It has sense and orientation.

You could also add Lars Von Trier's Zentropa.

Thanks for the tip, I will have to see it now....

Great list I hope will get bigger. The "Woman in the dunes" is a masterpiece!! Good job!

"Shadows And Fog" by Woody Allen, was very Kafkaesque.
