Well, relatively speaking, after that movie brain-washed many teenagers with bullshit car knowledge, I kinda felt my IQ raise above the rest...

I found the Fast And The Furious movies a bit bland.

I loved the part where he "lost the race because he wasn't double-shifting", or something like that. Note to the uneducated: Double-shifting is for down-shifting, and down-shifting only. They were going in a straight line. There was no down-shifting. "Double-shifting" in that case would make you lose the race, primarily because your transmission would get destroyed in short order...

Double-shifting is for switching gears in a transmission that doesn't have any synchronizers, or the synchros are worn out...Which means when you change a gear, you have to engage the clutch, put it in neutral, disengage the clutch, re-engage the clutch, select your desired gear, and re-disengage the clutch...This is most commonly found in manual-equipped cars around the 60's and/or before, as well semis...Knowing the time-consuming effort in changing to just one gear, this would do you more bad than good in any type of race...

Donnie Darko was mildly disturbing...
Final Destination and Final Destination 2 were disturbing
Cube was disturbing
Dark City was disturbing
Akira, as well.

No, actually, in racing, you do double-shift, if you're downshifting, because racing transmissions don't normally have syncros. However, if you're going in a straigt line, all you're doing is UP-SHIFTING, and all double-shifting would get you is a ground-to-dust transmission, because when you upshift, the drive shaft to the engine is supposed to go slower, not faster.

Also, you left out a step:
engage the clutch, put it in neutral, disengage the clutch,press the throttle re-engage the clutch, select your desired gear, and re-disengage the clutch

Bah, i knew exactly what was happening throughout vanilla sky, then at the end it confirmed my suspicions in the cheesiest fashion possible, it was so boring it pissed me off to the point of gouging out my eyes in case it ever came on again.

Mulholland Drive
I agree, Mullholland Drive is one of the most disturbing films I've ever watched. The part in the lip theatre where Rebecca Del Rio is singing and she falls down on stage, and you realise she has been lip synching - I don't know why - it was just one of the most poignant and emotive pieces of theater I've ever seen.

You mean Point Break. Point Blank is a different film.

A Clockwork Orange was the single most fucked up movie. Or American History X. Good flicks, but Christ the shit those people do!

That scene is particularly disturbing for two reasons. The first is that it's just disturbing on a visceral level, disturbing to see. But the delayed reaction part is more disturbing, if you think about it. When you realize that you've been told over and over that's it's just a recording but you were still shocked when she collapsed. It's what enlightened minds, from Siddhartha to modern-day quantum physicists, have been saying for centuries: the illusion of reality is so convincing you fall for it over and over no matter how often you are told it's not real.

Oh yes. I forgot, and it rocks my previous list:

Kids

Probably the most fucked up flick I've seen in a long while.

Saw it. Definately a fucked up movie, by God. Disturbing wtih the end splices and insanity of the downward spiral.
I just didn't get why the chick was smiling at the end? Was she really happy, or did she just accept being a junkie?

I still thinks Kids was pretty horrific for an Indy film. Requiem for a Dream is more shock value and carnal.
Both are still quite depressing.

You won't be forgetting that one soon will you. Should have warned you not to watch it early or you'll be depressed all day. I think she was smiling just to get a fix and nothing else mattered at that point. Depressing but should be seen at least once. Have to hand it to the director.

Fickle. Just noticed you were in the thinking movies thread too. Try "Donnie Darko". It would almost fit both categories but just mildly disturbing.

That is one of the most disturbing movies I've ever seen. I got coerced into watching it one night.

Lol. Yeah, I was in that thread too (I started it too). These two threads seem to overlap. But doesn't a thinking movie go out of its way to disturb you in some way?

I have to watch donnie darko simply because I have heard many things about it. I'd like to know whether or not it's depressing or whathaveyou, simply because the way I am, Requiem for a dream got me really low for like the rest of that night I saw it and the whole next day. I kind of have to psych myself not to be fucked up by a film, and requiem really fucked me up and caught me off gaurd.

Requiem did the same to me after I watched it. It is just depressing on so many levels, that suicide rate probably goes up for people who watch it. I am still glad I saw it though.

I would hesitate to even call Donnie Darko disturbing. As you say they intertwine somewhat, but Donnie Darko is almost all on the thinking side, where requiem is almost all on the disturbing side. It is kind of a dark facinating look through the eyes of a psychotic teenager who may or may not have some ability to manipulate time. But even though it is dark and moody, it is also funny in several spots which give the whole movie some of the feel of say "american wherewolf in london". You come away from the film thinking, but about what, I couldn't tell you. But that's what I really liked about it. It doesn't force feed you some message, it simply makes you think. The soundtrack really fits the movie well, and the song "mad world" near the end will likely not leave your memory for a while, it is really nicely done.

This wasn't so bad for me. I had already come to the conclusion that the whole plan of the worlds leaders is to have the ultimate power and rule the world. Only a matter of time. (Discuss in Breaking News, I don't feel like turning this into a political debate).
I didn't find 1984 as disturbing as I did find it troubling. It didn't hurt or offend me, just worried me.

Irreversible by Gaspar Noé is the most disturbing film i've ever seen, it's also a good one - But the scene where the head of the rapist is being smashed by a fireextinguisher make you want to puke, the 9 minute rape scene makes you want to puke even more...

definantly not a movie for the faint hearted...
