    The Dollars Trilogy


    You know, a lot of videogames induce a surrealistic experience as well. Those are by far my favorite.
    I hate 2001 A Space Odyssey. I am not trying to be difficult but it's the only film I've seen suggested that I can't stand.

    Sci fi is one of those genres I don't tolerate well though. It has to be mixed with something like horror or steampunk or something.

    I am curious about the dollars trilogy though.

    Yeah, where I grew up (very very southern central PA), I was only about 20 miles from the WV border, and Winter's Bone reminded me very much of that environment and culture there, although I think not quite as backwoods. (But uncannily reminiscent.)

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. 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

    I just found this thread and thought it was interesting.

    2001: A Space Odyssey would have to be my favorite of this type of film. Kubrick makes some good ones. While not a personal favorite, The Shining would also qualify.

    Other films of this type that I like would include Vertigo, Let The Right One In, Persepolis, Upstream Color, Children of Men, and Raising Arizona. I know comedies don't spring to mind for this category, but the Coens are masters of atmosphere and that movie is dripping with it. It could almost be a silent movie.

    Films by Andrei Tarkovsky (your best bet):

    Stalker
    The Mirror
    The Sacrifice
    Solaris

    Films by Ingmar Bergman (not as surreal or visual, but still worthwhile):

    Persona
    Winter Light
    Through a Glass Darkly

    Twister was a good atmospheric film.

    The Tree of Life. That is all.

    Most of what I was going to recommend has already been mentioned but 3 Women by Robert Altman is relatively unknown and very atmospheric. Loved it!
