I'm looking for movies that are similar to River's Edge and Out of the Blue. Low-key, kind of anti-coming-of-age movies in small towns that are just sort of depressing. Fire Walk With Me might be another example, but it's more operatic than those two.

Specific request but what are some good films set in Berlin with musical or political themes. Thinking of stuff like Wings of Desire, Decoder, Christiane F., and Knife in the Head. Preferably from the 70s-80s but outside that era works too.

Would Cabaret be too obvious?

I’m looking for movies in which people “gently caress” remotely using weird future technology. Think Demolition Man, Ready Player One (not explicit, but implied with that force feedback suit), Her/Blade Runner 2049, Tammy and the T-Rex.

E: how could I forget Lawnmower Man?

Strange Days does count but warning it's a rape scene

Examples of movies where there's one character talking about something really outlandish and it's mostly dismissed by the other characters only to be revealed in the 3rd act that they were right?

I'm in the mood for a movie with scenes of absolute bedlam, like monsters eating/killing/dragging away people en masse

If it doesn't specifically have to be monsters then High Rise is about civilisation collapsing and reverting to law of the jungle in a tower block

I want something with fog, sweaters, seaside, and maybe a fishing village. Ideally something spooky, but not necessarily. Perhaps a melancholic atmosphere, but not necessarily.

Already seen but would fit the bill: The Lighthouse, The Fog, The Wicker Man, and a bunch of BBC folk horror.

I'm looking for movies where dudes really beat the hell out of each other, but I would like 'real' movies, not straight action movies. Something where the fights are brutal but also....meaningful?

I watched A Prayer Before Dawn last night, so kind of along those lines. Eastern Promises is another one that comes to mind, and Valhalla Rising.
