For anyone intrigued by this thread, I wrote up a blog entry, sort of combining this topic with a review of H. (currently on Netflix):

The Double Life of Veronique would fit in this category as well.

In a sense, A Serious Man falls under this category.  Our fate is unknown and seems to follow no karmic realization.  The answer to the movie is to accept that you'll never understand.  And, in the end, there is a cyclone.  Is this due to something that happens in the film?  We don't actually know.

Good essay.  I enjoyed it.

Thanks. I've seen neither of those, actually, but will queue them up (esp A Serious Man, can't believe I haven't gotten around to it by now).

Holy Motors?
"What should have been an enjoyable 90 minutes of nubile, high-school flesh meeting a frenzy of blood-caked blades, becomes instead an exploitational and complex parable of the conflicting demands of agrarianism and artistry. I voted a miss."
