The World's Greatest Sinner (1962)

Soundtrack by a very youthful Frank Zappa (and some of the themes will be familiar to fans of his later music). He talks about the soundtrack in this clip (which is where I first heard of the film):

Martin Scorcese is a fan of the film.
There is a member of this forum named after the film and whose avatar is said sinner.

Thanks for all the other recommendations in this thread, it's enormously appreciated. Unless one of them is shit. Then I'll go fucking mental.

Ha, that looks amazingly silly, I'll definitely see that at some point.

It's a sequel to Endhiran (2010), otherwise known as the Indian Terminator.
I remember it got some very good press when it premiered in the US and UK at the time, also looks silly as fuck:

Sorcerer and/or Wake In Fright.  If you haven't already seen them.  If you haven't, I guarantee you will never ever forget either one of them.

ooh just watched Wake in Fright, very enjoyable that was

will try your other recommendation next

2.0 is just ridiculous, so funny, mad and very long, so long there was even a 15 minute break 90 minutes in.
It is so daft there is even the 3.0 sequel in the last quarter and I was totally exhausted by the end of it,
it was like having three Indian meals at once and as for the FX and plot and musical numbers and word salad subtitles, jeeez it's just incredible

That sounds fantastic and I'm really looking forward to seeing it now. Not sure if I'll be able to afford a cinema trip but the moment it's available online I'll watch it. Did you get the sense that you were missing out in any way by not having seen the first film? I've tried to track it down but have been unable to find it online so far.

Unfortunately it's not seeded so my quest continues, but that's good to hear that you can watch 2.0 without seeing it, and if I can get the money together to see that at the cinema I definitely will. If it wasn't for Christmas coming up it wouldn't be a problem, but will they let me ban it? No, no they will not.

Managed to track Endhiran down in the end on a private site I didn't expect would have it. It's three hours long so I'm not sure when I'll watch it, but it'll definitely happen soon.

Cafe Flesh. Like a porno Forbidden Zone.

I went with your suggestion today as I'm a dirty boy. Didn't expect to see a mutant rat perform cunnilingus within the first 10 minutes, or adult babies in blackface and I found it fairly interesting at first, but after about half an hour I got bored and lost interest and found myself checking out CaB during the dull sex scenes. And I was also a bit disappointed when Richard Belzer turned up and didn't do any fucking too. So only a 4.4/10 from me I'm afraid.

'ere, SMBH, why not give Swallowtail Butterfly a whirl?  Can't guarantee you'll like it, but it's got a similar narrative and stylistic unpredictability to Love Exposure.

That sounds like my cup of tea as I do love Love Exposure, obtaining it now and will try and watch it in the next couple of days, thanks for that.

I’m not much of a film buff but one you guys might not have seen that I love  is Francois Ozon’s Sitcom. Its a satire on the French middle class paternalism (I suppose). Fun though.

Watch Birdy. It’s fucking great, but you’d never expect it.

Legitimately the best ending to a film I’ve ever seen.

I only watched that about a month ago but loved it, it has one of the best ever openings to a film too.

I saw Birdy when it came out on video FerriswheelBueller and liked it a great deal. That was almost 30 years ago though so I should probably watch it again soon.

And I secretly liked Love Actually. In my defence I saw it when I'd just fallen in love for the first time (at least when it was reciprocated by the woman in question), and it led to fucking amazing sex that night. But I'm sure if I watched it today I'd rightly hate it.

I've see Antiporno and enjoyed it a lot, and will give Antiviral a go soon, thanks for that.

Have Amazon Prime for TV series and probably going to bin soon, but looking at their older stuff, its more interesting than Netflix.

Watched Barry Lyndon the other day, a mere 3 hours and got Ryan O Neil but it was just lovely to watch. Flew by.

Leonard Rossiter with a gloriously silly cameo also ftw.

Recommended, also watched Klute which was really good.

Not the most leftfield of choices, but ah well.

Whenever I search for a film I want to see on justwatch, more often than not it seems to be on Now TV. Their selection seems quite decent.

But alas it's owned by sky/murdoch so fuck paying for it.

I watched Sorcerer thanks to the recommendations on here and mostly enjoyed it, it's a masterclass in tension but the only problem is that you know all will survive for a good half hour in to the journey (which takes a little too long to begin as they don't start the crossing until the one hour point) and it didn't defy expectations as to who eventually made it, though the end of the film somewhat makes up for that. It's definitely something I'm glad I watched but for me it's a "Really great film" rather than "A fucking amazing film". I'm clearly in the minority so probably wrong though, it does seem to happen a lot these days.

Maybe the butchered release will be more up your alley - it largely does away with all of the character introductions.

Amazing cgi, though.

I do prefer Clouzot's Wages of Fear if I'm honest.  That second half, where Yves Montand is transporting the nitro glycerin across the rickety Venezualan countryside, has the same undiluted pure, stark action cinema feeling as Seven Samurai, which is pretty rare.

(Not a SMBH recommendation, by the way, as it has a similar pacing and structure to Sorcerer, and in both of which I think the languid, sun-drenched first halves are necessary for the second to work the way they do).

Watching Marketa Lazarova for the 3rd time in a couple of months I am tending towards the idea it might be the best film ever made, I mean Tarkovsky never had a narrator start to argue with one of the onscreen character and accurse him of shagging his pet sheep did he?

I really dug Bliss (1985) at the time but not seen it in decades.  Oddball Terry Gilliam-esque Australian comedy.



Here is the U.S. trailer. Obv, spoilers abound.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mser-xg4lrY

I'm slowly making my way through all of the recommendations and tonight's film was this, which was indeed a fairly mad film, it's not quite fucking amazing but it is bloody good and I did enjoy it a lot. It has a nicely surreal edge, a great concept, and visually it's fun too, and the themes and ideas it plays with are intriguing and involving. 7.7/10
