    Uhmmmmm


    Cinema -

    Fight Club - it's a pretty good mind****, but I expect you've seen it
    Taxi Driver - not twisty, but dark throughout
    Anything Tarintino's done
    Hero - full of different viewpoints, decent action
    Desperado Series - Wonky to the max
    Six String Samurai - Odd.......


    Anime -

    FLCL - it's absolutely un understandable, but great viewing, it's broke my head more than once
    Perfect Blue - it's plain wierd I watched it once
    Ghost In The Shell - Classic (and boobies!)
    Berserk - Good, but you'll want the manga too
    Trigun - Happy! Crazy!?

    And the kind of all craziness - Akira




    I dunno, I know a lot more insane books thank movies...

    What are you looking for exactly

    "Jacob's Ladder" is another good one- late-80s with Tim Robbins. I didn't know what the hell was going on until the last 2 minutes.

    "The Secret Garden" was the last wierd movie I watched. Johnny Depp rocks!!!! Well worth the cost of rental.

    Last night we watched "The Forgotten". My heart literally stopped in one scene- if you've seen the show you know which part I'm talking about!!!! I'm not kidding- I actually lost the ability to breathe for about 5 seconds.......

    Memento....i actually owned the movie for awhile, but it disappeared ???? it was....different. I wasn't sure if I really liked it or not, cuz like i said it disappeared-so couldn't watch it 50 times to decide. my roomie at the time thought it was the crapiest movie he'd even seen, but i disagree...the worst film I"VE ever seen : Bride of Chucky. I'm P-Oed I'll never get those 2 hours back!!!!

    people who think that movies like Memento are utter crap are people who should stick to stoner comedies ;). The Forgotten is one I'm waiting to see, our stupid rental place has 5 day rentals on new releases so that means I have to try and get it once a week and always fail :mad:
