Life is, of course, terrible.

Description: Anthony Burgess, author of A Clockwork Orange, said that. Here are films that prove it.

average rating MPAA rating watch rent buy
3 Women (Criterion Collection) (1977)
  A more appropriate title would have been "3 Wacked Women". These chicks are astoundingly weird, enough to make me squirm throughout the film.
Abigail's Party (1977)
Not Rated
  The adults on the block get drunk and destroy each other while Abigail's party goes on next door. Utter bleakness.
Another Woman (1988)
  Poor old lady with nothing to live for eavesdrops on shrink sessions which further prove her utter uselessness.
The Apostle (1997)
  Religious people are just plain wacked sometimes. Robert Duvall plays one of them as if he were one.
Brazil (Criterion Collection) (1985)
  Horribly, beautifully prophetic.
Buffalo '66 (1998)
  If I were this guy, home is the last place I would go.
Bringing Out the Dead (1999)
  Gleeful tale of a NYC ambulance driver.
Cabaret (1972)
  Nazis beating people who are just tyring to have a little fun.
Chinatown (1974)
  Proof that Los Angeles is hell and always has been.
A Clockwork Orange (1971)
  Ultra-violence that still tickles despite attempts in the 90s to stab, rape, dismember, and blow the brains out of the entire genre.
Citizen Ruth (1996)
  It's fun to huff paint from a plastic bag, even if you're pregnant.
The Conversation (1974)
  A dismal exploration of a mind crossing the dotted line between professional excellence and obsessive-compulsive madness.
Dancer in the Dark (2000)
  Perhaps the bleakest movie I have ever seen. Also a beautiful one.
Drugstore Cowboy Meridian Collection (1989)
  Drug addicts in Portland, where the weather could inspire suicide in a hummingbird.
The Elephant Man (1980)
  Omigod this guy had it rough.
The Element of Crime (Criterion Collection) (1984)
  Another joyous Lars Von Trier opus. This one tells of a happy possible underwater future for Europe.
Equus (1977)
  This movie, based on a play, based on a true story shows some poor kid who loses it, drops trou, and blinds a bunch of horses. Whee!
Far From Heaven (2002)
  One of the prettiest movies of all time. Not a very happy one, though.
Happiness (1998)
Not Rated
  Not one character in this movie deserves to live.
Heavenly Creatures (1994)
  Poor little teen-aged Lesbians. Poor mom.
Henry Portrait of a Serial Killer (1986)
Not Rated
  Let's watch videos of ourselves killing people. Brutal.
The Hours (2002)
  Who's Virginia Woolf afraid of?
The Ice Storm (1997)
  Sigourney Weaver: Ice queen and regular at mid-70s wife-swapping parties.
Interiors (1978)
  Woody Allen's first stab at a serious flick. Let's just say he went a little overboard in an attempt to remove humor from his films.
Leaving Las Vegas (1995)
  End-stage alcoholism meets prostitution on the streets of Las Vegas.
Love Liza (2002)
  Fat guy goes bonkers huffing gasoline after his wife offs herself.
Man Bites Dog (Criterion Collection) (1991)
Not Rated
  Egomaniacal French murderer kills many, recites bad poetry, behaves badly at birthday parties, and endangers the film-crew in this faux-documentry. Like "Henry Portrait of a Serial Killer" and "Reservoir Dogs", this movie is brutal in spots.
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975)
  A bunch of crazy guys in an asylum ruled by Nurse Ratchett, a woman whose name has become synonmous with evil.
Ordinary People (1980)
  An ordinary family: dad is rich but emasculated; mom is pretty but hafeful; the favorite son drowns; and the geeky, awkward son must pay. The fact that he makes such a mess trying to do it doesn't help at all.
Raging Bull (Collector's Edition) (1980)
  Robert De Niro spirals downward from sexy, wife-beating prize fighter to fat, alcoholic stand-up comic, all in grainy, dismal black-and-white.
Reservoir Dogs (Fullscreen) (1992)
  One scene in this movie was almost too much for me. You'll know it when you see it.
The Tenant (1976)
  Roman Polanski moves into this Paris apartment and, unlucky for him, begins to inherit some of the former tenant's characteristics.
Timecode (2000)
  Four simultaneous split-screen views of a collection of despicable Hollywood people and their wrecked, drama-bloated lives, culminating into a powerful climax.
Unmade Beds (1997)
  This film documents the search for love and fulfillment of a bunch of NYC-area losers. Unfortunately, the personals ads are their hunting grounds.
Welcome to the Dollhouse (1995)
  This film inspires schadenfreude perhaps like no other as it lavishes mistreatment on an ugly, middle-child, pre-teen Jersey girl. One brilliant scene shows Dawn "Weiner-Dog" Weiner in front of the class reading her essay on dignity.
What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962)
  Bette Davis and Joan Crawford as two deranged has-been sisters cooped up in a house. My favorite line is Crawford's: "I'm dying, Jane."
A Zed and Two Noughts (1985)
Not Rated
  Twin guys with their weenies out amputating limbs from the woman they love, sprinkled throughout with time-lapsed segments showing corpses decomposing, Greenaway-style.
Boston Legal: Season 1 (2004)
