My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done (2009)

Inspired by a true crime, a man begins to experience mystifying events that lead him to slay his mother with a sword.

Stylized investigation of a crime that avoids offering a simple explanation.

On renewed viewing: A great Werner Herzog movie that delves deep into its story and deliberately irritates by acknowledging and emphasizing the complexity of its topic.

Maltin**: "Genuinely odd film is ambitious but only intermittently successful, as it leaves too many unanswered questions about its characters...Given the film's general weirdness, it's no surprise that David Lynch is an executive producer."
