Spring may seem an unlikely time to crave a messed-up movie marathon, but the trippy films on this list are worth a screening any time of the year. Full of iconic (read: extremely bizarre) scenes and surprising performances from many now “mainstream” actors, these are movies that will get under your skin and stay there. Of course, it’s hard to get too bummed out by a well-told story or a stylishly made film (then again: Dancer in the Dark), but here’s a final warning: these are 10 seriously messed-up stories.

Andrea Arnold, Michael Fassbender, Christine Langan, Katie Jarvis - Fish Tank
SundanceTV

Fish Tank

Before he explored space in Prometheus or led the mutant uprising in X-Men: First Class, Michael Fassbender broke the human hearts of parents and teenagers alike in this gritty coming-of-age story. Fassbender actually plays second fiddle to young actress Katie Jarvis, who was discovered having a row with her boyfriend at a rail station in what was surely the most working-class English audition of all time. Jarvis plays Mia, a teenage girl who longs to escape her poor surroundings through hip-hop dancing — and grows attached to her mother’s new boyfriend (Fassbender). So yeah, it’s not as much fun as Step Up 2 The Streets, but Andrea Arnold’s second feature is terrific, and terrifically disturbing as it explores a deeply inappropriate attraction. Disturbing bonus: it’s not like Fassbender isn’t attractive in this movie.
