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.

Secretary

Honestly, about eighty percent of what’s messed up about this story is Maggie Gyllenhaal falling in love with James Spader. I mean, yes, the sadomasochistic dynamic of this sex-slash-romance between a domineering boss (Spader) and his new assistant (Gyllenhaal) will be off-putting to some. But the movie’s deadpan-comic overtones and engaging Gyllenhaal performance make it more of an intelligent rom-com than a searing psychodrama. And yet: there’s just something unwholesome about Spader being in a rom-com at all. For that matter, there’s just something unwholesome about Spader being someone’s boss; just ask anyone at Dunder-Mifflin.
