    those are ideal movies for children. i mean it's long and slow and children are patient and used to not making sense out of grown up stuff, and children (my type at least) love alternative worlds. i saw this movie (holy mountain) as a kid, and i loved it. today, i find it difficult to extend my attention span to so much irrationality at once.

    In an interview, Neil Gaiman mentioned that the editor was afraid that kids would be scared of the story but the kids really liked the story.

    The first movie that came to mind when reading this thread was He Loves Me... He Loves Me Not. It was pretty disturbing if I may say so.

    it seriously took until page 4 for someone to mention eraserhead? what the hell is wrong with you people!

    and I'm probably the only person here who thinks that the dream sequences from The Big Lebowski are creepy

    Gummo is another weird, kind of bleak yet beautiful movie. I always end up liking the stuff people hate.

    Julien Donkey-Boy is better.

    Edit:

    A couple of my favorite scenes from Gummo:

    This kind of discussion around von Trier has been pretty typical among movie critics. Can't remember all the details, but typically it revolves around how unsettling his movies are (often from a moral perspective) and whether his vision of the world is accurate. He's not an easy watch; you have to be made of stern stuff to immerse yourself in his vision.

    ha ha.... I think it's scary that Donnie never came to my mind. I guess the movie seems so "normal" to me in terms of my view of life that I didn't think about how surreal it is from the outside.

    That's a great unsettling scene where he's in the bathroom stabbing Frank in the damaged eye and being deflected by the force field -- is he bugnuts or not? Or the whole theater discussion while watching Evil Dead 2.

    remarkably, I remember being very disappointed when I finally watched The Exorcist in the late '90's. I was horribly bored. In fact, my favorite scene in the movie (in terms of being unsettled) never appeared in the orignial movie -- it's the scene where she scrambles down the steps like a human spider.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Holy crap, that's the same scene I was thinking of! The sheer atmosphere gives me shivers...

    I also read the Agony Booth recap of Kelly's Southland Tales. It involves dwarves in labcoats, SNL cast members and a commercial with two SUVs performing unspeakable acts, so I think it also counts.
