I just have to quickly mention a film I watched last night. It's called Stoszek and is a 1977 film by German director Werner Herzog.
It is one of the most unnerving films I have ever seen, not in a graphic SAW VII way, it's much more subtle. If SAW V gouges your brain out through your eyeballs, Stoszek slowly poisons your family and records their slow decline and then makes you watch it back in slow motion.
I am pretty sure it is a total masterpiece but that depends on my interpretation of it being what Herzog intended. I don't like to deconstruct a film's discourse, I do it too often with photography so I won't spoil anything but i will say this....
THE MOST UNUSUAL ENDING IN FILM HISTORY!
