I'm looking forward to watching the new blade runner film next weekend. 

As am I.  I gotta go back and watch the original.  Been a looooooooong time.

I was watching a weird movie last night called "The Voices." (has anyone seen it) It's basically about a schizophrenic man living in a delusion.  His apartment is disgusting and trashed and whatnot but he sees it as perfect. There's a moment where he's watching television and clicks the TV off so you see the reflection of him and his surroundings, and they look like his delusion.  I say to my partner "that would have been so much better if the reflection had shown the actual state of his home."

My partner says back to me "This isn't Twin Peaks."

Agree with the vote for the Twelve Monkeys movie, and another Gilliam classic is Brazil.  

Ex Machina was okay, but predictable.  Strip away the fancy CG and what you have is a simple Frankenstein movie.  

Haven't seen any mention of these, which IMO are worth watching:

Series 7: The Contenders

Primer

A real oldie but a goodie that really pushes the idea of identity and has some very well thought out set pieces, with plenty of the old "As above, so below" going on:

Might not seem obvious but the animated film "Spirited Away" ...

Lynchian in many ways.

Takes you to a different world...

For kids ... but not really.

Some might like Japanese voice acting better - either way great viewing experience ...

Definitely.  Right to the very top.  Make it the next thing you watch, or even sooner than that!

Fairly disturbing flick (Just the thought of Christian Bale at that weight disturbs).
