In My Father's Den.

It's a New Zealand film from 2004.

Synopsis: "A disillusioned war journalist's return home is blighted when he becomes implicated in the mysterious disappearance of a teenage girl he has befriended."

It's a wonderful punch in the stomach kind of film; like a Pat Conroy novel or a Mystic River/Gone Baby Gone.

I'd also recommend Cypher (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0284978/).

"An unsuspecting, disenchanted man finds himself working as a spy in the dangerous, high-stakes world of corporate espionage. Quickly getting way over-his-head, he teams up with a mysterious femme fatale."

A weird little mindfuck of a film with a great sense of paranoia. Plus, Lucy Liu is the femme fatale.

Pervert! is an alright B-movie. Plus, lots of boob.

If it's just alright I think I'm going to pass, my Bendis Board little brother. I'd rather stick with stuff people consider A-material. Lots of boob isn't really something I look for in a movie. Actually, I'm one of those lame-os who thinks nudity is rarely used in a well-considered way in movies. Thanks for trying, though--sincerely.

It's a very disturbing movie, but not traditionally so. The filmmaker, Todd Solondz, is able to disturb without being entirely obvious (OK, maybe the child molester story's kinda obvious... otherwise...). And whenever something disturbing comes up, you're also laughing pretty hard (at least in my case). I think the main thing that makes people uneasy about this movie is how it doesn't glamorize human beings while at the same time it doesn't make us 2-Dimensional. The last scene, however insignificant it could've been in another movie, is oddly one of the most heartwarming I've ever seen (some people might think I'm weird, but I'm actually getting a little teary thinking about it).

But, yes, it definitely won't appeal to everyone. If you're still unsure about it, maybe rent Solondz's earlier, tamer film Welcome to the Dollhouse. It'll give you some idea what to expect from Happiness.

Any recommendation from Andreas is obviously a great one. Just added this to the queue. Thanks! (Oh, and do I have to watch the other films in the series first?)

No, you don't have to watch the other films first. They're like meditations about falling in and out of love at various periods in your life, for which he uses the four seasons in the obvious way. They weren't even made in the chronology you'd expect and they don't share any of the characters.

My favorite is An Autumn Tale (1998 ) about people in their mid-Forties. There's a certain maturity in the way they approach the idea of a partnership and you don't have all the insecurities of youth. But I didn't find it on Netflix. A Summer's Tale (1996) is about a guy in his early Twenties going on a holiday and waiting for his girlfriend to arrive. And then he encounters two young women and becomes attracted to them and suddenly his life becomes very complicated. It's probably the lightest of the "Four Seasons" cycle and a good introduction to Eric Rohmer. That one or Pauline at the Beach (1983).

I don't know if you've seen anything by Rohmer yet. Of the movies by Rohmer available at Netflix I'd also recommend A Tale of Springtime (1989), Claire's Knee (1971), Summer (1986, not part of the "Four Seasons" cycle), and A Good Marriage (1981). The latter three are a bit more serious and you probably enjoy the formal aspects and the filmmaking more when you've already seen one or two of his movies and gained a certain understanding what to expect.

I hope you enjoy it. :)
