The Puppetmaster, if you can find it. I adore the first segment of Three Times, am cooler on the other two. Bounced hard off of Flowers of Shanghai (saw it when I was 18), but many consider it to be one of his best, and I think you'd be into it. Bounced hard off of Goodbye South, Goodbye and saw it in recent years, so if you're not familiar with his milieu, you could save this "gangster film" for later. Same with The Assassin as a "martial arts flick", but that ended up very fine if you knew what to expect. I think that's all I've seen. A lot of fans talk about A City of Sadness, Millennium Mambo, and Café Lumière as well.

Looking for dreamy, nightmarish, Lynchian horror movies. It's a really specific request, but I love stories where a character passes from the real world into a dream/purgatory/whatever. Things like Jacob's Ladder, Inland Empire, As Above So Below, the 2nd and 3rd seasons of Channel Zero, Baskin, etc.
Berberian Sound Studio, Beyond the Black Rainbow, Mandy, The Neon Demon, Only God Forgives, Tropical Malady, Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives, Evolution (Hadzihalilovic), Climax (Noé), mother!, Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning, Safe (Haynes), look up Andrzej Zulawski's filmography

Any recommendations for documentaries about weird people?

I watched The Florida Project yesterday and really enjoyed it. I also liked KIDS, Gummo, and Requiem For A Dream. Another good one is the 1981 made for tv adaptation of The Gin Game with Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy. The common theme here is "slice of life" type movies that don't follow typical movie tropes and don't necessarily have happy endings or any resolution - somewhere between a documentary and movie. Is there a genre for this type of film? Any recommendations on similar films?
most of my suggestions are contemporary w/ an exception:
-medicine for melancholy & moonlight from barry jenkins
-weekend from andrew haigh
-support the girls from andrew bujalski
-the rider from chloe zhao
-the works of charles burnett
-the works of debra granik
