    Oh, I just remembered seeing a movie about a guy and a boy walking across a post-apocalyptic wasteland, doing what must be done to survive in search of hope.

    Can't recall the name though. But I quite liked seeing it.

    'The Road' from the book of the same name by Cormac McCarthy?

    I would recommend anything from David Lynch.
    He has an uncanny talent to tap into the primal, subconscious mind.

    The works of Stanley Kubrick are affective as well.
    He chronicled human folly with an enthusiastic smile.

    My god, I've never been more simultaneously dazzled (by the beautiful visuals), moved (by the honest and vulnerable acting), creeped out (by the ambiance), turned off (by some of the violence), or have a wtf response (talking foxes, birthing deers, and whatever else).

    I'm finding it a bit easier to talk about and process than Malick's "Tree of Life," but it's leaving me with similar feelings -- like I have just lived within that space and experienced the movie but articulating thoughts about it from the outside eludes me.

    And what on earth was that ending?

    I remember having watched pretty dark film when I was a kid. There were two guys who I think were being helded hostages by an indian. I remember a scene on which one of these guys wake up and sees the indian is consuming the insides of the the calf of the other guy. I think that guy had tried to escape.

    Does anyone know the name of this film??

    I wouldn't say it's particularly weird, but Se7en is rather dark and is one hell of a good movie.

    I haven't seen The Antichrist, but the end of your post makes me wonder if it felt like you were punched in the stomach--because my experience of Lars Von Trier (which is a handful of films--Breaking the Waves, Dancer in the Dark, The Idiots, The Boss of it All) is that he always leaves you feeling like someone just punched you. In the stomach. Hard. Even his comedy, I felt like shit after I watched it. I like dark films and stories. But ugh! Lars Von Trier! He is a bad person who wants people to suffer!



    McCarthy's The Road, on the other hand--I haven't seen the film and the book has a totally unnecessary ending (not dark enough!), but damn--it's a work of art. Dark art. Gloomy art.

    yes, so far, I've seen Breaking the Waves, Dogville, Melancholia, and now Antichrist. left kind of speechless after the end of each... but it's also that there is just nothing I can say about the movie. I don't know how to explain it. I think my T sensibilities are looking for a thread or structure by which to hang the movie on, and his movies just kind of defy any kind of natural skeleton, they're constructed differently, and any rational attempt to explain them just comes out as gibberish or is some kind of simplistic criticism or pabulum. I can't accurately articulate what I felt and experienced when watching the movie, or what it was doing to me. You can only understand by watching it and experiencing it yourself.

    A lot has been said about the act of self-mutilation that occurs in this movie, that left Von Trier branded a misogynist (although people have been accusing him of that for awhile). Actually, I felt like there was actually a through-line there -- the kind of guilt the character experiences for the tragedy occurring at the movie's beginning leads directly to what she does, later; it made sense to me and follows logically, but as a woman who has walked my particular road in life, I was completely mortified by what happened. Just waaay too close to home for me, I'm wincing agonizingly now just thinking about it again.


    McCarthy's The Road, on the other hand--I haven't seen the film and the book has a totally unnecessary ending (not dark enough!), but damn--it's a work of art. Dark art. Gloomy art.
    I'll have to look for that one. I seem to be into dark movies lately. gives me something to feel.

    Especially that scene with Sloth, with the little trees hanging from the ceiling and, well, you know...

    The cinematography and art direction was excellent; I think the look of the movie (and how it affects ambiance) sticks with me more than the movie itself (plot, acting, etc.)
