    Naked Lunch.

    Holy fuck, it's weird. Pretty much, bug exterminator becomes addicted to the bug powder he uses to kill bugs with. Stumbled upon mass government conspericy. Weird-fucking-shit happens.

    Was recommended to my friend who got it from a list of fucked up movies to watch from 4chan.

    Good luck trying to figure out what the hell is going on at any given time.

    If you have a list that long I don't think many people will take your recommendations with much weight, since whatever value they give your opinion will be spread thin over your list and they probably will not waste time looking up each movie to see if they are interesting. A list like that would fit better in a "Required Watching for Totse Thread." If a thread like that isn't created soon, I can start one when I have time to make a decent list.

    This was my face after watching that...

    1278763434000.jpg

    best to watch it under the inluence of something. It made a fuckton more sense.

    Pink Floyd's "The Wall"

    Highly underrated movie. Epic thriller.

    Box of Moonlight (1996)
    This is possibly my favorite movie. The beginning is a little slow, but it gets better. Definitely watch this if you can find it.

    Lawn Dogs (1997)
    This is my other favorite, they alternate sometimes. It has a topless ten year old Mischa Barton as well as Shooter McGavin, what more could you want?

    Gummo (1997)
    Most of you have probably seen this, but I'll throw it out there anyway since it's one of my favorites.

    Gorno: An American Tragedy (2004)
    This "movie" is pretty terrible, but if you can find a copy give it a watch. It uses the same basic structure as Gummo, but it's more of your average dumbass angsty teenage Totsean in the suburbs than rednecks in trashville. I'm sure they didn't intend for it to be so hilarious, but it is.

    The Boys Club (1997)
    Chris Penn basically reprises his role from Reservoir Dogs, although now he's threatening teenage boys, which makes it a little more menacing. You never hear anything about this one, but I think it's pretty good.

    Phantom of the Paradise (1974)
    Technically a musical, but a pretty damn good one, and I really like the soundtrack. Had I been around in the 70's, I would've done terrible things to Jessica Harper.

    I'll also second The Fall.

    Gattaca
    Unthinkable
    Falling Down
    The Holy Mountain

    Also, the three Star Wars movies.

    Anything directed by David Cronenberg. Especially The Fly and Naked Lunch. Crash is good too, it's a movie about people that have a car wreck fetish.:)

    Also some horror classics everyone should see:

    Night of the Living Dead (original black & white version)
    Phantasm and Phantasm 2
    The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
    the whole Re-Animator series, so fucking awesome
    Hellraiser and Hellraiser 2
    The Howling
    Halloween (the original, not the faggy remake)

    I just watched Oldboy per your recommendation and it was the craziest movie I've ever seen besides Ichi the killer. Fucking asians. I liked it except for the that whole twist at the end. Good movie overall though.

    I was just about to say the same thing, I didn't recall anyone mentioning "The game" with Michael Douglas, but it is a very good movie as well.
