  1. Great list, Jeremy! Now why am I not the least bit surprised that you’re a Svankmajer fan? I’d have you pegged as a fan of the Brothers Quay animation work, too. Just a guess I’d hazard.

  2. Sheesh, I thought I had a fairly rounded movie list under my belt. I don’t think I’ve seen half of these.
    One I would recommend is ‘Next’ with Nicolas Cage. It’s based on a novel written by Philip K. Dick. The last scene changes the whole movie so you have to pay attention.

  3. You might’ve covered these previously, Jeremy, but a few I’d point to for those who haven’t seen ’em:

    The Reflecting Skin
    Afraid of the Dark
    Jacob’s Ladder
    The Holy Mountain
    El Topo
    Santa Sangre
    Tetsuo the Iron Man
    The Vij
    Spider
    Oldboy (actually, that whole trilogy is great)
    Martyrs (warning: VERY intense/graphic, but NOT gorno)
    Calvaire
    WR: Mysteries of the Organism
    Begotten
    In a Glass Cage (warning: very intense subject matter)
    Cube
    Any collection of the Brothers Quay animations

    (I loved The Fall, too, BTW!)

  4. BTW, has anyone else seen von Trier’s last one, Antichrist? Very distressing film, but also one you won’t soon forget. Not a great film, but wow … it leaves an impression. Also, recently saw Michael Haneke’s newest one, The White Ribbon, and that stuck with me, too. His movies usually do.

    You didn’t mention Crumb. Technically it’s a documentary, but it ranks up along American Splendor as an insight into a comic genius. The other reason everyone should watch it is for the disturbing revelation about Robert Crumb’s Bugs Bunny fixation.
