In my first list I was avoiding films labeled as horrors, but this time I will put such films only because I consider that they have a deeper meaning. Some of this films only have some dark scenes but are not overall dark. And also I consider existential horror to be very dark.
waiting for godot 2001
Ikiru (to live) 1952
eraserhead 1977, the grandmother 1970, the elephant man 1980
Mary and Max 2009 and anything else from Adam Elliot (clay-animated films!)…
I've watched a lot of films and I've noticed that there are sometimes film that you just can't put your finger on them, all you can say is that they are dark in atmosphere, unordinary, unhollywoodlike...
No particular order:
The Navigator: A Medieval Odyssey 1988
Tenshi no Tamago (Angel's egg) 1985
La Cité des enfants perdus (City of lost children) 1995
The fall 2006
The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover…
