Freaks (1932) An American Pre-Code horror film about sideshow performers, directed and produced by Tod Browning and released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, with a cast mostly composed of actual carnival (funfair) performers. [taken from wikipedia]
Tod Browning's "Freaks" poster. Freaks was filmed in the 1930s and used real sideshow performers instead of makeup and effects. It was so shocking to audiences it was banned in Britain for 30 years. It also (mostly) ended the career of Tod Browning, who directed "Dracula" with Bela Lugosi just two years prior, but had trouble getting projects after this.
Horror Freaks ~ Growing up in a traveling circus Director Tod Browning was no stranger to the unusual side shows that came along with the circus life. In fact most of these actors are indeed Circus Freaks which makes this film even more strange. It's no wonder that is indeed a CULT CLASSIC !

Safe (Todd Haynes, 1995) Fri, Apr 5, 2013 7 PM Voted “Best Film of the Decade” in a 1999 Village Voice Film Poll, Safe details a wealthy suburban housewife’s physical and psychological breakdown as she develops multiple chemical sensitivities. Through a masterfully ambiguous and unsettling tone, the film upends the conventions of both “disease of the week” and psychological/environmental horror movies. Julianne Moore stars, in a defining performance.

WideAngleOfSet.jpg (1296×1311) The Connection Shirley Clarke. For her part Clarke has Ornitz's camera constantly prowling the apartment; she's seldom still, and her movement keeps us enrapt.
The Connection by Shirley Clarke  “A time capsule loaded with smack from the bohemian underbelly of JFK-era America, Shirley Clarke’s 1961 film The Connection is an illustration of how much things change, and how much they stay the same… Watching this ensemble drama about a multiracial group of New York jazz musicians and beat philosophers in a run-down apartment, waiting for their drug dealer to show up, is like travelling back 50 years in time, only to encounter the same people you might meet on the street today (at least, in certain neighbourhoods of Brooklyn, San Francisco, Austin and so on).” – Andrew O’Hehir
