"Good and messed up, or just messed up? My vote for just plain old messed up include:
- Naked Lunch
- Twin Peaks - Fire Walk With Me (Yes, it's a movie)
And I haven't seen Eraserhead but I hear it's one of the most messed up movies ever made.
Fire Walk with me is one of my all time favs- was a lot better if you were already familiar with the series, and eraserhead is VERY messed up
"Jacob's Ladder (1990)
I still have not decided if I have that one figured out- I think about it all the time though how nice it would be to be a mailman and just not have to think anymore
"Try Donnie Darko.....its a little crazy.
My favorite quote form the movie is "'Why do you wear that bunny suit?' Freddy replies, 'Why do you wear that man suit?'"
Its a great film
Have you been to the site- ONE OF THE BEST SITES EVER! if you ask me- very exploritive made by the same crew (Hi Res) that made another great site for requiem!
If you go and enter info- donnie will write you for awhile-also have you seen "Nowhere" It is made by the same people- very messed up as well but you can tell it was an earlier project by them- and for all you butthole surfers fans gibby is in Nowhere as Juji fruit
Roses are red, violets are blue, I'm a schizophrenic and so am I.
Anyone ever see the Grifters? That's pretty much the most fugged up movie I can think of a title for. There are others higher on the list, but since my memory sucks worse than a 10 year old Dust Buster, the Grifters it is.
Donnie Darko is a good one. But I believe Nowhere is a Greg Akari movie.
However another Greg Akari movie gets my vote:
The Doom Generation, with Rose McGowan and James Duvall, it even contains a cameo from Perry Ferrall.
Every store they go into, no matter what they buy, the total is $6.66
Great weird movie.
Forever means, all is not seen
Aleister Crowley is my co-pilot
I'm free to take comfort in my own personal nightmare

Originally posted by hotpot Irreversible, french movie with Monica Bellucci. There's an 8 minute rape scene and they showed the raped girl's friend bashing the rapist's head with a fire extinguisher. Aargh!
actually that movie was pertty disturbing in terms of the rape scene and the voilent murder, but I wouldn't call it screwed up...
It was actually pretty straight forward. The interesting part was the camera work and the non-linear story telling. But it wasn't "screwed up" in the "weird" sense of the phrase..
There really wasn't much to the story--guy's gal gets raped and brutally beaten (openly depicted), and very soon after, he finds the guy to kill him.
BTW, you're wrong about him killing the rapist.. If you watch it again, you'll realize he killed the wrong guy, since he doesn't know what the rapist looks like.. After the guys head was bashed in, the camera pans over to the rapist who stands there shock, but with a slight amused expression on his face.
I would say the most F*CKED up movie which I couldn't make sense of is EL TOPO. It had everything.. it was a surreal masterpiece set in a spaghetti western style movie. lots of voilence, tons of screwed up characters, but also lots to wonder and discuss what things meant.. highly recommended for arthouse fans...
