Bad Boy Bubby (1994)

The ultimate social outcast movie. Emotionally stunted 30-something Bubby is locked in a filthy apartment by his mother his entire life, and only after killing her and his father is he able to escape. He must come to terms with fact that it's a very different world outside the confines of the apartment.

Tony (2009)

Tony is a weirdo loner with a fixation with grade-B 80's action films and an unusual habit- preying on London citizens and keeping their bodies in his apartment. He is ignored by virtually everyone, making his crimes go practically unnoticed.

Buddy Boy (2000)

Another big-time social outcast movie, second only to "Bad Boy Bubby." Stuttering Francis lives with his invalid 'step-mom' Sal, and is on the cusp of a mental breakdown. He relieves the tension of his wretched and painfully awkward life by going to confession and jerking off to magazines. When he meets Gloria, his life begins to go in a bizarre direction as he quickly decompensates.

QUOTE- 'AT TIMES I QUESTION MY FAITH... I-I-IN GOD. SOME TIMES I FEEL LIKE I HATE HIM... I DON'T, O-O-O-OF COURSE, BUT I WONDER... IF HE REALLY DOES EXIST, WHY HE WOULD LET SO MANY BAD THINGS HAPPEN.'

In a way, the whole family are outcasts, for they live in a state of self imposed isolation. Father Donald is bankrupt, Mother Nancy has terminal cancer, and son James has some strange combination of Paranoid Schizophrenia and a developmental delay and is always causing grief for his parents. They all live together in an estate that is as decayed as it was once grand. If it sounds like a recipe for disaster, it is.

A happily simple eccentric, Aidan is brain-damaged and unemployed, but manages to see the meager joys of his life with a unrelentingly positive attitude. Linda is his angry, abusive girlfriend. Tom is the man who comes upon their odd set-up. Aidan is the main outcast here. Nobody understands him, and he seems just fine with that, oblivious even. We witness as Aidan begins to grow on the depressed Tom.

Sling Blade (1997)

Karl is a mentally challenged victim of childhood abuse who is released from a mental institution after killing his mother and her lover in a fit of rage. Frank lives in fear of his mother's nasty hillbilly boyfriend. Both are outcasts who become unlikely friends, and both will come away from the friendship with more than they bargained for.

May (2003)

A weirdo horror movie. Socially awkward May is cut off from the rest of society, and craves human companionship. After she proves too weird for her boyfriend Adam and is seduced and deserted by her lesbian coworker Polly, May has a total mental breakdown and goes on a spree of murder and mutilation. Whether you look on in horror or root for May the whole way, there is a lot to like about this odd indie film.

Schizophrenic Julien, the kind of guy who people generally avoid on the street, has gotten his sis pregnant and generally wanders the streets with no clear purpose. His dad is nuts and his brother, an aspiring wrestler, is embarrassed by him. A low-budget look at a very strange life.

Ben X (2007)

A portrait of a Autistic Belgian teenager bewildered by social customs and people in general. He is bullied to the point of suicide- but will he end his life?

Even if having a teenaged street gang be the protagonists of a sci-fi comedy doesn't appeal to you, you'd still best check out this well-written humorous alien invasion movie. The members of the gang are most definitely social outsiders, and not only because of their illegal activities. Living lives of poverty, they have never really been given a chance at life.

Tsotsi (2005)

The life of a young thug in Johannesburg radically changes when he makes the decision to care for the infant son of one of his victims. We don't see many films from the point of view of gang members in third-world countries, and while the character's development into a better person is a little implausible, it is also touching and well-done.

A family of cannibals struggle to keep on keeping on after the death of their father. The opening scene is a haunting portrayal of disenfranchisement in an uncaring city. The cannibals exist alongside but separate from the rest of society, and only think of the other people outside their clan as food.

Maniac (2012)

Frank is an abused-child-turned-psycho-adult who kills women and uses their scalps on his mannequins. He is extremely socially isolated and is haunted by memories of his hooker mother. Will Frank find love and break free of his violent lifestyle, or die trying?

The Butcher Boy - Patrick McCabe
moviebuff15's rating:

Y'know, like the kind of people Diane Arbus would photograph. The ill, the retarded, the deformed, transvestites and serial killers. Make recommendations if you wish, but (a these people have to be the main characters and (b we have to see the American dream (or not, if the film isn't American from a different angle.
