Anyone see The Woodsman with Kevin Bacon? Very challenging subject matter, and a rather brave film.

Similarly, The Machinist was thought-provoking and weird.

Neither film is a crowd-pleaser, that's for sure.

That was weird and interesting.

I can't quite express why I like it...maybe due to Ben Whishaw's performance or that...the plot carries an artistically refreshing scent.

Now that's what I call method acting!

Kinda Funny! I like him in everything except the Dark Knight movies.

This is a movie you have to watch all the way through!

His best was 'American Psycho', imo.



Another weird movie was 'Freeway' starring (strangely) Reese Witherspoon and Keifer Sutherland. It's like Red Riding hood on crack.


I'm gonna go ahead and toss 'KIDS' up here too; not that it was all that odd, but just more like in your face. Classic 90's material.

I don't know if Apocalypto or Pulp Fiction qualify as "odd".
