Lynch, Cronenberg, Gilliam, Carpenter, Burton.
Brazil - dark, humourous, visually stunning and atmospheric, this is Terry Gilliam at his finest.

Metropolis - an amazing technical feat, given its age, and though the story is simple enough it is beautifully and majestically told. Now that they've recovered a copy of the original cut, it can only get better (a large chunk of the film had been lost).

Crash - David Cronenberg's clinical approach results in a haunting, meticulously paced film with an interesting (certainly different!) view on sex and relationships.

Lost Highway - classic David Lynch, and possibly his most obviously "scary" film with the character of the Mystery Man. Told in his typically unconventional style, the film manages to evoke a wide variety of emotions, even though you'll probably need repeated viewings to really get a grip on what is going on (if there even is such thing as a definitive explanation!) Also has a cracking soundtrack.

INLAND EMPIRE - definitely the most interesting film I've seen in a cinema, this is pure, distilled Lynch. Utterly confusing, beautiful, terrifying, haunting, humourous, bizarre; this is a difficult film to sit through, but it's worth every minute.

As you can probably tell I am a bit of a David Lynch fan; I'd recommend pretty much any of his films, but also any film by David Cronenberg, Terry Gilliam, John Carpenter or Tim Burton.

Bob de Niro's finest role - "This whole system of yours could be on fire, and I couldn't even turn on a kitchen tap without filling in a 27B/6." Brilliant.
