I know that you're looking for relatively contemporary films, but two particular eras in film history would seem to be influences on the films others have been citing.  One is the experimental films of say the 1920s (ENTR'ACTE, BALLET MECHANIQUE) and Soviet montage (perhaps MAN WITH A MOVIE CAMERA more than even Eisenstein), through MESHES OF THE AFTERNOON.  The other is the in the films of the 1960s and 1970s--PSYCHO, PERSONA's opening montage, the montage sequence in THE PARALLAX VIEW, Richard Lester's early films through HELP!, Polanski's films through ROSEMARY'S BABY, 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY and A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, etc.  Many of these features are also presaged in films of the Japanese NewWave--Oshima in particular.

Subject: [SCREEN-L] Intensified Films and Their Soundtracks

I'm interested in sped-up, cut-up, prismatic and/or changeable contemporary
films and their soundtracks (examples include Greengrass's The Bourne
Ultimatum, Assayas's Clean, Neveldine's Crank, Scott's Domino, Gondry's
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, To's Full Time Killer, Akin's
Head-On, and Antal's Kontroll). My best way of finding out about these
films has been through asking my students, but they've run out of
suggestions. Would you be willing to tell me which films you admire? Feel
free to contact me on the list or directly at [log in to unmask]
