  4. Gerald Kargl's ANGST (1983, Blu-ray). Also streaming on TUBI and AMC+.

    Drone/GoPro-style camera angles impressive, then/now.

    OR

    Gaspar Noé's all-time favorite movie. Enough said.

  36. Chopping Mall (1986)

    Pinching, jabbing, shocking, lasering, falling. Zero chopping.

    Also, seeing this within a month after rewatching Rock 'N' Roll High School, I was really struck by the adult cast crossover. Makes me wonder if there was supposed to be a Ramones killer robot semi-musical set at a school and mall that got split into two movies.
