    Seems Jodorowsky keeps popping up in threads like these.
    Don't really care for the Holy Mountain or El Topo.
    Neither are nearly as groundbreaking as purported.

    I've been digesting parts of the 1986 version of the Hitcher, focusing mainly on Rutger Hauer's character John Ryder. From what I've seen, there's too many logical inconsistencies in the film to call it great, but his performance has my full attention.

    Mark Isham's soundtrack helps.

    This was one of the weirder, darker ones I've seen in awhile. That the idea was even developed enough to make screen is beyond me.

    I'm not too sure which dark and weird movies one prefers.

    For example, some people love psychological thrillers, others like realistic gore.

    Cannibal Holocaust was a pretty disgusting and disturbing film. I wouldn't watch it again.

    Movies I liked that are "dark" and "weird" are Jacob's Ladder, Pi, The Machinist, City of Lost Children, Ikiru, Waking Life, Delicatessen, Naked Lunch, Dead Ringers, Videodrome, etc.

    I don't really care for those torture films, like Saw.

    There's definitely a sense of 'going to the bottom of life'... like relentless onwardness, wastefulness. The idea that every living thing in the end gets a losing deal, pain wins out over happiness, bad always outweighs good, etc.

    For me, it's like the scientific concept of entropy. You get less than you put in, the universe always takes more than it gives, etc.

    There's a quote from Arthur Schopenhauer:

    "A quick test of the assertion that enjoyment outweighs pain in this world, or that they are at any rate balanced, would be to compare the feelings of an animal engaged in eating another with those of the animal being eaten."

    To which all you can say is-

    LOL

    Some people could be offended, but for me it was hilarious to read that, because it's such a blunt expression of something I'd kind of always felt.

    The movie gets at that in a more heinous, dramatized way.

    So is anybody else following anyone's recommendations? I've been systematically seeking out every single person's suggestions. I take my threads very, very, very seriously.

    I plan to follow up on some movies mentioned in this thread.

    As far as your prior post in our discussion of Von Trier, as soon as you dropped the name Schopenhauer, well, that kind of conveys everything that could be said.

    I just saw District 9, I suppose it fits the context of weird and dark. But it's also really well made. It's definately part of my most favotire movies I've seen of all time category.

    It's basicly a non-'disney'-fied Avatar.

    Other than that, Clockwork Orange comes to mind. I've also seen some disturbing 'underground' movies, but they tend to lack much depth. :P

    Not sure if thats weird enough...its creepy though (and left me paranoid for a week).

    Felidae is an animated film and feline noir story involving murder, Egyptian mythology, medical experiments on animals, sex, cults, genetics and nightmares.

    Thats weirder than Felidae
