I don't see why Un chien andalou is on this list. Sure, there's the razor scene. But other than that it's not "fucked up". Weird, surrealist (duh) actualy. But not fucked up (or I don't understand what fucked up means)"Typically euro, french in particular, in my opinion. It's the same skiing or climbing there. They are completely unfazed by their own assholeness. Like it's normal." - srsosbso

After watching Pink Flamingos, I've tended to avoid the so-called "Fucked-up" movies.¡Órale, vato!

Waters, Greenaway, Bunuel, Lynch..those guys make moves that have that twist which qualifies in my view.
Then again, who the fuck cares...Merde De Glace

I remember seeing The Cook The Thief His Wife & Her Lover in college with my hardcore vegetarian friend.
We were both a little zooted, which made Jean-Paul Gaultier's costume design and Ben van Os/Jan Roelfs' production design amazing. But my friend almost blew chunks during the "meat wagon" sequence.
Still, that film was so artistically done that it overshadowed the "fucked-upedness."
I'm trying to think of films that have made me squirm and have made me uncomfortable.
The only ones I can think of off-hand are:
Last House on The Left...early Wes Craven exploitation film that is just creepy and has one scene that'll make you gag (I remember renting the movie after reading a review of it by Roger Ebert in which he said it was vile, base, and exploitive, but it was also unnerving and scary and because it accomplished what it set out to do he was recommending it as a bona fide good horror film).
Crash...the whole Rosanna Arquette character freaked me out, especially the sequence where she goes shopping for a new car.
Come to think of it a lot of the early Cronenberg flicks were f'ed-up (Rabid, anybody?)
Irreversible was gruesome, but as with Greenaway, the direction was so arty that it overshadowed the unnerving bits. It was still intense.
Some of Paul Verhoeven's Dutch work (Spetters and Turkish Delight come to mind) can be a little unnerving, at least compared to most American fare.
I also think of films that leave you stunned as being f'ed-up. La Haine springs to mind on that front.

Spoorloos is probably the most disturbing I've seen, but this is a very close second. It's as creepy as Spoorloos, plus this fucks with the viewer, breaking the fourth wall in an unpleasant way.
Oscar-calibre performances from Naomi Watts, Michael Pitt, Tim Roth, this great guy I'd never heard of called Bradey Corbet, and the little kid.

I don't think I saw "Henry, Portrait of a Serial Killer" mentioned. And "River's Edge" was kinda fucked up too.

Yep Cliff... that one was f'kd for sure. I forget, was it the wife or the kid at the end... just pitching her/him overboard!?! Gnarly. I don't think I've seen another flick that inspired so much hatred toward the bad guys. Well, save for maybe Irreversable.

Caligula (1979) was about as fucked up as I've seen so far. That movie really left me feeling somewhat ill.

Has no one seen "El Topo"?
Yo, what a trip. Tarantino is supposedly a huge fan. Very twisted.
I have not seen a lot of these mentioned, next click to netflix...

I showed the scene (the YouTube link to Funny Games in my post above) to a female friend and after about a minute she was getting angry, "No, no, no. I don't want to see this. This is bad, this is going to be bad - I. Don't. Want. To. See. This. Turnitoff!"
And then I had to calm her down.
Don't know what would have happened if she'd seen the whole movie.
You sure feel impotent sitting there watching when you want to tear Pitt's head off...and I guess that was part of the director's point.
And the other guy, too, forget his name. Excellent acting, though. Doesn't feel like acting while you're watching, though.
That last scene in the boat, their indifference - even after everything else that has gone on it is still shocking.

For anyone that has seen Oldboy... I've watched the first 40 minutes... and I have hardly any idea what the hell is happening. Is it supposed to be like that, or is it just going over my head?

"Happiness" is one of the most disturbing movies I have ever seen. It reminded me of a less surreal "Requiem for a Dream". This movie just made me feel uncomfortable, even after it was over.
