hey does anyone have particularly good recommendations for ww2 underground resistance films?

Depending on what you mean by underground resistance, even something like Come and See might count.

You may have already seen 'em but these come to mind: Hot Fuzz, Attack the Block, Crank 1&2, Kingdom of Heaven Directors Cut, Kong Skull Island, Serenity, Akira, and Redline.

edit: also Dunkirk, 1917, Prometheus and Snowpiercer might fit the bill.

Serenity?

Are any of Paul Verhoeven's movies worth watching outside of the classic trilogy of Robocop, Total Recall, and Starship Troopers?

Pretty much all of them. Elle, Black Book, Basic Instinct, The Fourth Man, and Showgirls all rule. Flesh and Blood is not very good but it's interestingly weird. Hollow Man is also not great but you can see where there was a much better movie at some point in the process that got chopped up.

Mulholland Drive?

Also, does Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon hold up? I just watched Touch of Zen again and would like another great martial arts epic.

absolutely, and if you just watched Touch of Zen and/or Dragon Inn itís cute seeing just how Unashamed it is of being a love letter to those movies

I am pretty familiar with Cronenberg's big ones, but I haven't seen Slither. I'll check that out, along with Tetsuo 2 and Possessor, thanks!

Possessor is directed by Cronenbergís kid, as is Antiviral, which will almost certainly hit your spot too

The Score (the one with DeNiro)
The Italian Job (both versions)
Widows
The Thomas Crown Affair (the remake)
Topkapi
Ronin (sorta counts but this movie rules hard)
Thief
Entrapment

The Korean move Thieves is a fun one in the vein of the Ocean's movies

Howdy!

For some reason, I've taken to unwinding by re-watching Bi Gan's Long Day's Journey Into Night pretty much every night before I fall asleep. I really like the sort of metaphysical mystery/noir tone that reminds me a little bit of the works of David Lynch/the writings of Paul Auster/Borges, but I also really like how... hazy it feels? It kind of just drifts around and not a lot happens. I guess I'm looking for recommendations like that. Kind of slow drifting movies where the plot unfolds pretty slowly, if there's even a plot at all. Bonus if it's got some kind of broad metaphysical theme, but I don't think there's quite that many of those kinds of films out there.

Stuff I've seen that kind of scratches that itch:

Kaili Blues (same director. I also watched his short film the Poet and The Singer, but it didn't grab me as much. Loved Kaili Blues though)

Uncle Bonamee Who Can Recall Past Lives

Still Walking

Paris Texas

Stalker

Calendar (Atom Egoyan. I watched most of his other films and while good, this one I really enjoyed.)

I have Criterion, Netflix, and HBOMax, so if your recs could be on one of those three streaming services that would be awesome.

Thanks for any recs you guys can scrounge up for me!

Iím sure you know that Tarkovsky was a huge influence on Bi Gan, and all of his movies have a good bit of this vibe, not just stalker. Other communist bloc filmmmakers and their direct descendents are probably good bets, Bela Tarr, Zulawski (maybe a little stressful/horny for what youíre looking for), Kieslowski, any of the fifth generation Chinese guys
