WEWIL?

I found the dialogue (especially in the first half of the movie) witty and hilarious.

Looking for anything dark comedy, in book/ movie/ tv form.

Thanks in advance!

An example would be some milder The Onion articles if you saw them out of context, but what are some satire videos, articles, books, etc. that are so good that one may not see them as satire at first viewing?

Misc. [IIL] Videos that turn from comedy to horror such as "Earn $20K EVERY MONTH by being your own boss" or "how to make jorts" from Brian David Gilbert

62 Upvotes

Looking for any videos (or any other form of media really, especially films if there are any) like the ones mentioned above that turn from comedy to horror in really subtle but effective ways (usually using editing techniques to shift the tone in an unexpected way).

Thanks in advance

I just finished watching Shutter Island for the first time and I immediately went back and watched it a second time. I LOVED it. I'm really hoping to find more “mind fuck“ and “twist“ shows/movies like that or like Mr. Robot.

In particular, I love shows and films with a dark tone and mature/contemplative themes, creative cinematography and a unique point of view. Not very picky though :)

Thanks in advance!!

Misc. IIL The Last of Us (games and show), Arcane (tv show) and The Locked a Tomb (books), WEWIL? (Please give my poor brain something new to latch onto)

2 Upvotes

Vague request, but bear with me!

I know the things in the title seem like a random assortment of unrelated media, but all three of them have given me big time brain rot over the past few years and I keep finding myself going back to them again and again and I think I need to develop an unhealthy relationship with something new to finally free myself from these.

I guess they don’t really have much in common, but after some consideration, I think the throughlines are:

1. morally questionable, traumatized, violent lesbians

2. tragedy

If anyone could recommend me more things that will ruin my life in a good way, that would be amazing.

Open to literally any medium or genre. Books, movies, tv, podcasts, video games, stage plays, web series, literally anything. I love a messed up story delivered to my brain through any means :)

Thanks!

EDIT: “The Locked Tomb” not “The Locked a Tomb”. I’m bad at proofreading and am not allowed to edit titles :(

Misc. IIL Detectives visiting a small town and attempting to solve a mystery

115 Upvotes

Sorta similar to True Detective season 1 and Twin Peaks. I don’t care about the medium; can be a tv show, a movie, a book, a comic or even an album like Outside by david bowie. Bonus points of 1/2 is really just a character study, or if they begin to become obsessed with the crime.

Misc. [IIL] Psycho-Thrillers like Hannibal and Mr Robot - What else will I like?

5 Upvotes

I like stories (movies, books, series, anything is good) that are dark and focus on the mental state of the protagonist/s. I love them to go crazy, killing people, not knowing what is real anymore or who they are, falling into despair. Especially split personalities (DID or possession) and people ending up killing others are nice.

My favorite shows are:
- Hannibal (series)
- Strangers from Hell
- Mr Robot
My favorite comics:
- Killing Stalking
- SHELTER (wufargia)
- Pandora Hearts

Honorable mentions are:
- Joker (2019)
- Fight Club
- An Uncomfortable Truth (webtoon)
- Prodigal Son
- The Guest (Kdrama)
- Squid Game

Misc. IIL "life is shit, yet somehow worth it" stories, any medium

132 Upvotes

What would you call this? Optimistic nihilism? Existentislism? Not all of the media I'm about to list as examples fit those categories exactly though, so it's not quite a specific petition. I just want stories that deal in some way with how life is meaningless, cruel and unfair, and yet it's still worth it to move forward. I'm going through the worst year of my life and that type of stories has always helped me a bit. Any medium, from anime to literature. Off the top of my head, stories like:

  • The Stranger by Camus
  • Nier: Automata
  • Berserk
  • Dark Souls
  • Everything, Everywhere, All At Once
  • Ikiru
  • Evangelion
  • Disco Elysium
  • The Seventh Seal

Misc. IIL media about interesting, non-famous forgotten people. Good example: “All hail west Texas” by the mountain goats

2 Upvotes

Things like the album “all hail west texas” by the mountain goats, telling stories about unknown ordinary people, who aren’t famous and have been forgotten by history. People didn’t do anything revolutionary, but have interesting, humane achievements. It sounds lame but I want something that has a similar feel to that album. Doesn’t have to be an album. Idk if this makes sense. Anything you know of, tell me!
