As long as you don't mind foreign films I think Stalker could be right up your alley. In fact I think you'd like a lot of Tarkovsky's work. You might also like Primer. I guarantee you haven't seen another sci-fi movie like it.


I'd like to second both of those recommendations. Both are incredible.

Stalker can be a difficult movie. It's very long and very slow, but if you let yourself get into the movie's rhythm it'll really grab you. It becomes sort of hypnotic. The end is tremendous.

Primer is probably the greatest time travel movie ever.

I'd recommend you watch 'Angels and Deamons' or' The Prestige' if you're interested in a mystery movie. Both are equally as awesome.

I've said it on these boards before but I'll say it again. I think Stalker is at the apex of cinematography. Every shot is just so haunting and beautiful. Tarkovsky really should be remembered as a director who is on the same level as Kubrick and Kurosawa.

Event Horizon - Sci-fi horror, pretty good
Alien
Aliens - Two good movies, wouldn't bother with Alien 3 or Alien resurrection

City of God

The girl with the dragon tattoo - The original Swedish ones. That would pass a night for you


Just a few suggestions...

While it doesn't really fit in with the list you provided I'm also going to mention Let the Right One In. It is one of the greatest vampire movies ever made but it is also much more than that. I think Bloody Disgusting said it best when they rated it as the Best Horror Film of the Decade:


It’s rare enough for a horror film to be good; even rarer are those that function as genuine works of art. Let the Right One In is one of those films – an austerely beautiful creation that reveals itself slowly, like the best works of art do. The simplicity of the story allows Swedish director Tomas Alfredson to focus on these two pre-teen characters with a penetrating insight that not only makes it a great vampire film but a great coming-of-age film as well. At its core, the film is, simply, a human story, a pensive meditation on the transcendent possibilities of human connection. Most of all, it’s a film that sticks with you, and whose stature will continue to grow in the decades to come.

I agree with you about "Stalker." If you haven't seen "Picnic at Hanging Rock" I suggest you do so as soon as possible. It's a lot like Stalker in how everything seems is so arranged so beautifully, but it makes you uncomfortable at the same time. It's also another very hypnotic movie and a movie that unnerved and unsettled me like few others, but I have no idea why.
