This was hastily published as part of Go, See Talk's most recent blog-a-thon, in which we were challenged to come up with a week's worth of double features (with a triple-feature on the Sunday). Check out what the rest of the participants came up with here.
The Wicker Man / Shutter Island
Two top-notch horror/thrillers that strikingly resemble one another.
The Player / 8 1/2
Making movies can be hard. Just ask Griffin Mill and Guido Anselmi.
Sunshine / Moon
Two recent pinnacles of the sci-fi genre that deal with people going batty in space.
The Good, the Bad and the Ugly / Rango
Why not? They both feature a character with no name.
Downfall / Inglourious Basterds
Watch how Hitler died. Then watch how Hitler could have died.
There Will Be Blood / American Psycho
For some reason I have it in my head that this would make a great double feature. Haven't been game to try it yet.
Rouge / Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind / Amelie
For no other reason than for the delight they bring.
