Klown: the Movie (2012)
I Love You Phillip Morris
I got here late, but "Dark City" was the first film to jump to mind when I read the title of the thread. It is a disturbing movie, but a damn good one. I have seen it 6-7 times now, but the plot has some big holes in it that I can't get past anymore. Things like why nobody notices that everything stopped (traffic, trains, etc.) when they woke from the "sleep"? The fact that you had to acclerate the car to speed again would seem like something you would notice. Also, not every memory is changed every night and none of the physical appearences change so wouldn't the people who knew the person still recognize them playing out a different role? I can no longer watch it without over-thinking the plot.
I do love the names though...Mr. Hand, Mr. Quick, Mr. Book, etc.
On the flip side, in 10 years, you might buy a new 2mm thick TV, and come here asking how you can mod it to accept an HDMI cable.
Of course, it's the recommendation that's conventional, not the film itself.
I did an oral report on the film for my Spanish class in high school. It did not go over well with the teacher.
Lots of interesting looking movies have been mentioned here that I haven't seen or heard of before. Getting personal recommendations from living breathing humans sure beats search algorithms, manipulated search engine results, and the inherent marketing wall, whatever the topic (not just movies).
Was gonna add on Waking Life. Very unique movie.
Timely thread. When the cold weather sets in, we start searching for the off-the-wall movie. Also looks like we have a bunch in the "Unconventional but Good" category versus unconventionally ignorant. Like that better.
I would put the 2018 space travel release "High Life" on a list of unconventional but good. Quite a different role for Juliette Binoche, but don't let her being in it fool you. We're still thinking about this movie.
The problem with Wes Anderson movies is that they are all so stylized and alike, per his signature. It's hard to call any single one of his movies unconventional.
But The Royal Tanenbaums will always be my fav.
Yes! I believe we discussed it here: where the child molesting dad tries to drug a boy who's come over for the sleepover, and we have to fight the knee-jerk urge to root for the protagonist to accomplish his task. But I think you may be referring to when the son asks dad if he would molest him.
I kind of feel for the actor playing the dad, Dylan Baker. I just watched him in an episode of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" the other night where he plays another seemingly normal, upstanding guy who is a closet creep. But getting typecast means you're being cast.
I have a very dark sense of humor. But Happiness is the most disturbing movie I've ever seen. Was absolutely nothing funny to me. I almost couldn't get through it. Kinda bummed I did.
