Mulholland Drive by David Lynch is an awesome movie, my absolute favorite.

But it is probably one of those love it or hate it movies.
If you like it, it will keep your thaughts occupied for quite some time after watching it,
that's one of the things that makes it so enjoyable. If watching it with friends, a discussion
will definitely follow the viewing of this movie.

Don't say I didn't warn you ;-)

I loved Mulhollannd Drive. But far weirder is his Inland Empire.

I agree, it's far weirder and I find it can be a bit exhausting to watch. :-)
I would not recommend it to someone who has never seen a Lynch movie or anything of that kind before or just doesn't like this abstract kind of film.
I lost a few friends after watching MD with them already... well not really, but they thought it was complete gibberish :-)

For a relaxing look at a good film try this one from Australia.

"Danny Deckchair" - a great romantic comedy film. Good to see with the significant other.

Then there's always Groundhog Day with Bill Murry.

If you like mysteries try out all the Sherlock Holmes and Charlie Chan films done thru the 40's and 50'. Great stuff for the times.

Oh ya! I've seen it like a dozen times. I could probably watch it a dozen more.

Another movie I never got sick of was Arthur. No matter how many times I see it, I still laugh.

Concerning Sherlock Holmes , I think the British Holmes TV series from the 80s is great! Very close to the orignal stories by A.C. Doyle.
They didn't have a big budget but Jeremy Brett is sooo unbelievable as Sherlock Holmes! They also did a few movies, but they are not that great.
Any Holmes fan who for whatever reason would not know this series HAS to watch it!
Check Youtube for examples, than order at Amazon ;-)

If you want to see something truly disturbing, watch Martyrs.

It starts out like a horror film, then it progresses into something much deeper, more profound, and a lot more disturbing. Don't be put off by the first 30 mins, it's setting up what turns out to be one of the best movies I've seen in ages.

Uh, I didn't like that movie very much. And I found it to be pointless in the end. But I agree with you in that it really is disturbing!

The end is the best bit, where it starts explaining everything. Very uncomfortable to watch though.

I can't work out yet whether it's more disturbing than Requiem For A Dream or not.

Ah, Requiem For A Dream is a great movie, also visually very pleasing.
Definitely a recommandation from me for everybody who hasn't seen it!

To me, Martyrs was much more disturbing and I didn't like the explanation and the end, I found it rather stupid and pointless.
Each to his own ;-)

Yeah it's really good. I watched it once when I was drunk and tired, and once when I was really ill and in a fever. I remember it like a dream, which is probably quite appropriate.

Sherlock Holmes? You guys gotta watch ´Without A Clue´. Michael Caine and
Ben Kingsley are great!

Loved it as a kid. I can't believe it was after Star Wars. But the little metal owl is clearly a tribute to R2D2.

The Cider House Rules

Really liked this movie. I like movies that are about real things and real people. With the tragic realities that are the human experience.

Team America. ******** hilarity abounds! And to cap off the movie GREAT songs. Trey Parker might just be the best songwriter of the last 20 years, at least where commercial music is concerned. That dude is a serious talent.

I can recommend a documentary called 'American Movie'. It's hard to get hold of outside the states, and its not very well known, but it's worth the hassle. For fans of weird characters, losers, and misfits. It's hilarious.
Werner Herzogs' 'Grizzly Man' is similarly brilliant if watching oddballs is your thing.
If you want to watch the weirdest you might possibly ever see, get hold of 'Visitor Q' by Taakashi Miike. Don't watch with your mother though. Its not weird in a Lynchian abstract way, it's weird in a 'how the f*** did that get past the censors' kinda way. Japanese weirdness.

Some other lesser known gems...
-'Antanarjuat (aka The fast runner)' - Brilliant Inuit movie
-'Me You and Everyone we Know' -cute indie comedy
-'Das Boot', 'Seven Samurai', '12 Angry Men' - timeless classics
-'City of God' - great gangster film

If you only like blockbusters don't listen to my suggestions, but if you like something a bit unusual (but not pretentious arthouse crap) then maybe try some.

I think you might like 'irreversible'. If you do watch it, try not to read anything about the plot, because it will ruin it. But it's similar to Requiem, it's fascinating and hard to watch at the same time. Daft punk do the music. Don't watch it with your Mum!

Me too. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, same actors as in "Hot Fuzz". They are a comedy dream team.

I always watch it on old VHS tape when I visit a friend who lives about 500km away. Love it every time.
