Nor did I accomplish much after I started.
Recommended Angel Heart A PI is hired by a mysterious character to track down someone who disappeared. This person, he's told, is needed to 'settle a debt'. Strange murderous events seem to follow every lead and things get darker and more violent with each development until everything dives into the supernatural world and stays there.
Voodoo craft and devilish work is at hand, leading man to murder, incest and other violent deeds. Very gritty, stylish and dark with a dark sweaty texture that you can feel, and bizarre atmospheric sequences that all make sense at the end.
Barton Fink An intelligent satire on writing screenplays, pitting inspired work against Hollywood cookie-cutter and commercial pressures.
The uptight, tormented Barton is whisked away to Hollywood to write a pointless b-movie after his plays become a success, and he finds himself in a surreal hell that becomes more and more literal.
Small touches such as heat, peeling wallpaper, pus and flames are turned into a full-blown surreal vision in a climactic ending, with a wonderfully enigmatic epilogue that teases with themes of beheaded muses, hell, the devil taking over, and living in a beautifully superficial but enslaving postcard world.
One of the Coen Brothers' early masterpieces, and definitely their most bizarre movie. Beasts of the Southern Wild A truly magical movie that deserved its hype. This tells the tale of a strong-willed little girl and her strict father that live in a poor bayou community in the American South called the Bathtub.
They live behind the levees and are in constant fear of flooding, but are very attached to their homes and lifestyle. Her father contracts an unknown disease, adding to the fears, but the people are well trained in the practice of toughing it out and ignoring bad news.
The movie is not only seen through her eyes, but also through her mind, combining gritty realism with the unexplained mysterious world of adults, and several stories or warnings become fantastical, imaginary and surreal.
When she misbehaves, her fears that she may have broken the world are seen as reality, and beasts of legend turn into symbolic monsters.
A trip across the waters that may or may not be real, leads her to a floating whorehouse where a woman who may or may not be her mother seems to do magical things. I am usually not a fan of movies carried by children, but this one features a very striking and unforgettable lead, and the magic revolves around her.
Bernie French madness in the form of a black comedy.
Bernie is an 'orphan' who decides to leave his orphanage where he has worked all his life, and search for his parents. Trouble is, he is also a paranoid and violent-prone idiot several levels removed from reality.
Amongst the things he discovers is that he was thrown into a garbage can as a baby through a garbage chute, but this is obviously the fault of 'them' and not his loving parents.
His father turns out to be a psychotic sodomizer bum, and his mom has succeeded in building a respectable life, or has she? He also encounters a drug-addict, money-loving bitch whom he pays to be his girlfriend, and her sleazy wheelchair-ridden father.
Sparks fly, madness and violence goes rampant, and the movie is full of one shocking, blackly comic and colorful surprise after another.A thriller about Luthan, a British doctor working at a hospital in New York who starts making unwanted enquiries when the body of a man died in his emergency room disap.
