Requiem for a Dream was insane. I felt like a strung out addict by the end of the movie.
Many of the other movies already mentioned are worthy of praise. Here's a couple more.
Dead Calm. Not just for Nicole Kidman. Great movie.
Shallow Grave. Incredible Movie.
Mad Max. - Mel Gibson before he became a ragin anti-semitic buffoon.
Galipoli - see above.
Swingers. This movie is Money. Incredible cast, great script and downright hysterical. I've seen it at least a dozen times and, each time I watch
it I find something that I missed in earlier viewings.
Bad Lieutenant. Harvey Keitel at his wickedest.
Lost In Translation. Bill Murray being Bill Murray
Dazed and Confused. One of the all time best cast of unknowns. Everyone in that movie, save the freshman, are recognizeable. Brilliant 70's
Momento. Mind boggling film from Chris Nolan.
The Usual Suspects - yup, it was an indie. One of the best ever. Up there with Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs.
The Terminator - Spawned Ahhnold and Turned James Cameron into a god.
Night of the Living Dead/Evil Dead - these two deserve mention for taking a genre to new highs in gore and scare.
