    I am bored.
    What movie should I watch?

    Preferably something dramatic.
    A thriller, even?

    A movie that requires a lot of thinking.
    And no comedic elements to it.
    Just something dark.

    Any ideas?

    Alfred Hitchcock's Rope is an excellent movie both in story and filming.

    Yeah, that was good. Not my kind of movie choice but a good film nonetheless.

    But Dorian Gray has a handsome man in it giving it extra appeal, Pan's Labyrinth has a talking sweet potato!

    Requiem for a Dream is about as dark as they get. It is also based on a novel by Hubert Selby Jr.

    Thanks for all the ideas, folks. I ended up watching Pan's Labyrinth.
    (Happy now, Flashy? :wink:)
    It was fantastic!

    I think I may have to watch another one right now. Get a start on this fabulous list I've been given.

    Thanks again,

    Robert

    if i were you, i would take Vince's advice and watch "Requiem For A Dream"...

    utterly devastating, heavy film...one of my favorites...seen it dozens of times.

    heartbreaking, brilliantly directed.

    If you want dark, try Tideland. For not quite so dark, yet truly spectacular, try The Fall.
