    Blind (2014) // Norwegian // http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2616810/

    Interesting visual representations of the imagination of a blind perverted woman.

    I would say that ethically you are still supposed to act as if you have unilateral responsibility; but simultaneously you have to be able to see the other as a fully autonomous, free, aware person.

    Medicalizing social problems has the additional benefit of rendering society not responsible for those social ills. If it’s a disease, it’s nobody’s fault. Yay empiricism.

    You reminded of me of an old movie called "Blind Beast". It was really disturbing and I doubt I will watch ever again. It was like the only thing on at 3 a.m. before I got netflix, hulu, amazon, etc... I don't even watch cable anymore. I should get rid of it.

    NSFW


    "Clockwork Orange" and "Lair of the White Worm" are good.

    Here are a couple more that are less disturbing.



    I have watched all but "Blind Beast" multiple times.

    Peeping Tom (1960) // United Kingdom// http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0054167/

    It stands the test of time. Classical 20th Century avant-garde,it's all psychoanalysis, symbolic weirdness and perversions.

    Trailer(so lol):

    Probably well-known, I dunno (I don't keep up), but the Ian McKellen adaptation of Richard III was brilliant. I've always loved both the play and the early 20th century.


    I recommend Marmoulak if you're interested in Middle Eastern culture [EDIT: and Beta viewpoints thereon]. It satirizes virtually all aspects of Iranian society's attitudes towards religion and was banned by the clerical establishment shortly after its release. You may also appreciate the uplifting message at end, contingent on your inclination towards spirituality.

    It was in the reign of George III that the aforesaid personages lived and quarrelled; good or bad, handsome or ugly, rich or poor, they are all equal now.

    Dunno what constitutes as avant-garde, but The White Ribbon, is another interesting movie by Haneke.

    This one is much older, but essentially truly avant-garde in an aesthetic sense.

    Fireworks (1947) is a homoeroticexperimental film by Kenneth Anger. Filmed in his parents' home in Beverly Hills, Californiaover a long weekend while they were away, the film stars Anger and explicitly explores themes of homosexuality and sado-masochism.[1] It is the earliest of his works to survive.

    My contribution but it's really hard to sit through:




    "One of the greatest masterpieces of the 20th century, Sergei Parajanov's "Color of the Pomegranate," a biography of the Armenian troubadour Sayat Nova (King of Song) reveals the poet's life more through his poetry than a conventional narration of important events in Sayat Nova's life. We see the poet grow up, fall in love, enter a monastery and die, but these incidents are depicted in the context of what are images from Sergei Parajanov's imagination and Sayat Nova's poems, poems that are seen and rarely heard. Sofiko Chiaureli plays 6 roles, both male and female, and Sergei Parajanov writes, directs, edits, choreographs, works on costumes, design and decor and virtually every aspect of this revolutionary work void of any dialog or camera movement."

    Valerie and Her Week of Wonders / Valerie A Týden Divů

    Valerie and Her Week of Wonders is a 1970 Czechoslovakian surrealist horror film directed by Jaromil Jireš (1935–2001) and based on the 1945 novel of the same name by Vítězslav Nezval (1900–1958). It is considered part of the Czech New Wave movement.

    I thought Holy Motors was a good movie - that probably qualifies as being avant-garde in the sense of being surrealist.
