Yes, it's Valentine's Day. But I say bah humbug to V-Day. 

I haven't even yet fully recovered from Christmas and New Years to think about celebrating another day wrapped up in crass commercialism & consumerism (insert smiley face here).

So, it's in that spirit that I post this entry, which, as the title suggests, is seeking your choices for the best inappropriate, unorthodox Valentine's day movies! Films that are contrary to what is usual, traditional or accepted, with regards to this particular holiday. So, no Love Story, nor Love And Basketball; no Love Jones, or anything else affirming love in the title. No Breakfast At Tiffany's, Sleepless In Seattle, Pretty Woman or Ghost. None of that shit, yo

I'm talking about stuff like Fatal Attraction, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Stanley Kubrick's Lolita or Eyes Wide Shut, Hitchcock's Dial M for Murder, or even Lars Von Trier's Antichrist, or Breaking The Waves. I'll also toss Takashi Miike's Audition into that hat, and probably almost anything by Neil LaBute (In The Company Of Men and The Shape of Things to start). 

I think you see where I'm going with this... I hope. 

So, jump right in, whether you're in love, or lovelorn; your picks for the best ANTI-Valentine's Day movies in the comments section below. Let's come up with a list of films that we can all watch over the weekend.

    I second "War of the Roses". It gets no better than that.
