    There is some movie called "un Chin andulisha" (this is how is sounds when pronounced, I'm not even gonna try to spell it correctly). Salvador Dali was in on the production of it, and it is supposed to be really intense. It is pretty hard to find, and it might have subtitles...Gummo sucks.

    I forgot to mention any movie with Divine in it....pink flamingos, i think. Divine eats dog shit, and there is a guy that has a dancing ass hole.

    I thought it was a good movie- a little excessive maybe- I didn't dig the rapid scene jumping though. They should show that movie to little kids instead of all that D.A.R.E. bullshit, I sure know not to do heroin now.

    yeah, the edited version is wack. jesus, i don't know the name either, but i think i know the film you're speaking of. where they cut open a human eye of a living person. it's not that dope considering that dali produced.

    I agree, anything by John Waters is fucked up, but his movie's really are just unusual to watch, they never really effect me.

    If you liked Requeim for a Dream make sure you see Pi (as in the math symbol), it's by the same director. I thought it was even better than RFAD.

    Also, check out Dancer in the Dark. Bjork's movie. It's amazing, it'll have you sobbing. I mean literally, none of that watery eye crap, you will be crying. It's a great flick.

    Last but not least, best movie of all time.. (drum roll)... Momento. It's about this guy who looses his short term memory due to a blow to the head by the people who were raping and killing his wife. He can't remember anything past that point, all he knows is he has to kill these men.. See it!!

    Oh, and Gummo takes place only about an hour away from my house in Xenia, OH. haha. But it was really filmed in Tenn. so it doesn't count.

    PRUDE - If I had nuts, you'd be on 'em.

    your opinion sucks.
    dancer in the dark is a good flick, but i
    wouldn't say it was 'fucked up'.
    lars von trier's 'idiots' is more of a fun
    'fucked up' movie instead.
    the 'celebration' is nice and good fun fucked.
    eraserhead is a nice head fuck and the soundtrack
    is even more of a cumshot to the face.

    I saw Momento actually. Definitely a dope movie. I thought the ending might have used a little adjustment but the whole thing was really fuckin innovative.

    But yeah Requiem For a Dream was pretty damn impressive. A pretty simple concept taken to the outer limits of what you can do with a camera. I saw some Kubrick influence underneath that movie for sure. The quick-style editing and the build up to the end really grabbed me ... Am I the only one who thought the script was kind of outdated? Marlon Wayans was sayin shit like "jive" and "groovin" ... ???

    I read somewhere that Aronofsky put a lot of work into pushing Pi, and ended up getting the funding for Requiem from its success. I guess the hard work pays off eventually. Batman though?? I don't know ... Someone should get Frank Miller to translate The Dark Knight into a film already, those movies have been beaten-the-fuck-to-death.
