" 'night, Mother " (1986)
Sissy Spacek and Anne Bancroft.
I am very surprised we have gone 7 pages with no mention of 8 mm starring Nicolas Cage. I think I was around 18 when I first saw this and was quite disturbed by it.
Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans (2009) with Nicolas Cage. About as dark as it gets for a cop movie.
You like dark movies? Try watching the finale of Tim Burton’s “Batman” at a drive-in theater.
'Threads' is the ultimate in, 'once seen never forgotten', dark and bleak films. It's a British TV film from the 80s about the build up and aftermath of a nuclear war, mainly following a normal family. It is absolutely brutal, with nothing even vaguely positive happening to any of the characters and they are hopeless with no inspirational "power of the human spirit" type moments. They showed it to us in school (!) and so many moments are still with me now.
Biting off the heads of chickens in a down market carnival!
do see this one if a fan of bleak films.
very highly recommended
Marilyn is lovely.
Alpha Dogs, starring Justin Timberlake, is one I would classify as dark.
Leaving Las Vegas
Mulholland Drive ...
It has it's peaks and valleys.
Well the terrain gets dark at times.
Reminds me, should i add the Bermuda Triangle?
why not! ; )
yes, me too! It was brutal.
Come and See
The Deer Hunter
I Saw the Devil
You Were Never Really Here
It has a happier ending. A lot of light hearted moments in the film but has A couple dark scenes... hard to define a “dark” movie though. I get it. Great movie though no matter what category it falls in! A must watch
for me the dark was brutal therefore I pushed it into that category of DARK! : )
