FEAR X [2003]

Fear X is an immensely unsettling psychological thriller from Pusher director Nicolas Winding Refn and Requiem For A Dream writer Hubert Selby Jr.
With it's confusing storyline, discomforting drones, bizarre color palate, camera angles, dark hallways, seemingly haunted house and a strange sense of dread that there's always someone watching I couldn't help but feel this is the long lost film by David Lynch.  John Turturro turns in a great performance as a troubled man in search of the man who murdered his wife and that's about all I could make sense of the story.  Beyond that I felt frightened from the very get go and that quenched my thirst for a new Lynch film.
