    I posted it recently, but, another Lars von Trier flick I enjoyed was Dancer In The Dark. It;s not scary, but it was certainly odd, morbid, and overall startlingly.. moving.

    I didn't look through the whole thread, but has anyone mentioned City of Lost Children? Is that dark enough What about Delicatessen?
    Spirited Away actually gave me nightmares.

    I considered Delicatessen, but the comic element swayed me from adding it. Spirited Away was even seemed even darker because it was animated- heightened because of the contrast with the themes/mood I am used to in animation media.

    Adding the director Adam Wingard here as well. He's done plently of dark/nihilistic movies, he's a real up and comer. My favorite if his would have to be 1000 year sleep, even if it's just a short one.

    On the subject of Lars von Trier - what about Melancholia? Every time I watch it, I love this film a little bit more.

    Funny Games, (the Michael Haneke version), off the top of my head. And The Orphanage. I'm not into horror, so the movies I regard as dark are usually disturbing on an emotional level. (And by that measure, I found scenes from Inglorious Basterds and one scene from Saving Private Ryan to have resonated with me on an awfully disturbing level. Bleh).

    Hmm, Nil by Mouth was yearggh, as was The War Zone. They're both older movies. Fish Tank was deflating as well. Dancer in the Dark... Prob anything by Lars Von Trier. And while it was sorta dark, I loved Welcome to the Dollhouse because it was funny too. Hmm... The Vanishing, (the remake and the original), rather disturbed me too.

    Sorry if I'm repeating any past suggestions.

    Really liked it. One of my favorite experiences is when someone weaves the personal and universal together. And it's a great movie to sit and absorb on one's own. I love clashing, or even slightly clanging, emotional notes. That's the best description I have for an element I liked about that movie. Almost made me wish I was there, which is odd. I've only seen it once. I'll have to watch it again, I'll bet it's great after a few passes.

    Both versions are Haneke. Are you referring to the 1997 original?

    This has been on my to-see list forever. Have you seen Happiness (also Solondz)? Great movie.

    I agree, and it definitely got better for me after each viewing. Something I especially appreciate about the film is how, during part one, Justine really struggles to maintain the appearance of happiness, yet Claire becomes the more irrational sister during part two. When the external situation is befitting Justine's melancholic nature, something clicks into place and it fits. It suits her, and she becomes eerily calm compared to Claire. Love that.
