This is going to sound weird, but I wash a lot of films with my grandmother and her eyesight isn't that great any more. I want films with good acting that aren't shot so dark you can't see what's going on.

[up][up] The Tree of Life was my favorite movie of the past five years or so, and it's plenty artsy. If you like it, Malick's other films are worth checking out as well.

If you enjoy Woody Allen and artistic films, you'd probably get into Ingmar Bergman's films (he was a big influence on Allen). Also, you might enjoy the works of Luis Bunuel.

[up] How about watching a Pixar film? Or something else animated.

Maybe something with a high-contrast colour scheme or outright black-and-white...?

(I just watched Hugo Cabret last night for the first time, so that comes to mind.)

[up][up] & [up] We've seen most of the CG stuff that isn't too cheesy and we've seen Hugo. I'm looking for something not aimed at children.

[up] It doesn't need to be black and white. It just can't spend large chunks of the film with people in dark rooms. It's just like every recent film we watch seems like they forget to light the set.

Maybe not, but it's hard thinking of 'films I didn't have difficulty seeing'. Black and white is intended to work around situations where the colours are just too close together to easily distinguish from the beginning, though, so it seems like a thing that comes to mind.

We watched Departures yesterday in religion class and I really liked it.

The music alone is breathtaking and the story is a really bittersweet yet charming view on the topic.

I Hiatus Every Five Seconds
I am doing liveblogs on So Bad, It's Good and So Bad, It's Horrible works. While I have some films planned to liveblog on, I am interested in seeing other people's suggestions for films that are So Bad, It's Good and So Bad, It's Horrible. I am mainly looking for works where the full movie can be seen on online for free (like on Youtube or Netflix or any other place). Any recommendations?

Don't be the penis.
That's The Invention of Hugo Cabret (I think it's supposed to describe Hugo growing into himself through the story). And the movie is just Hugo.

I'm looking for some movies that specifically focus on changing gender roles for a theme month on my blog (un/fortunately, not Women's History Month, since I haven't already started).

I'm probably looking at April, so I need four movies. I want to span the 20th century, and I'm already planning on including Kramer Vs. Kramer. So I guess I need something from the 20s/30s, something from the 50s/60s, and something from the 90s/2000s.

That first one's gonna be hard. There's probably a lot from the second era, but finding something I haven't seen will make it more difficult. Mr. Mom comes to mind, but it's too close in time and subject to Kramer Vs. Kramer.

I prefer comedies, but I shouldn't avoid dramas. The theme actually helps force me into doing dramas.
Are you looking for cis-gendered only or will transgender roles work, as well?

If there are good transgender movies from before 2003, I'll give them consideration.

You seem to like dark movies. I recommend The Invisible. It's director was the co-writer of The Dark Knight Saga.

Anyone know any good tragedies? In my experience, they're hard to find because modern audiences tend to demand happy endings.

'Tragedies' is a broad term, but two good recent films that had the archetype of a Tragic Hero (instead of just ending unhappily) are Into The Wild and The Wrestler.
You're a wallflower. You see things. You keep quiet about them. And you understand.
I know of two movies that fit the format for a Greek tragedy (character flaw, his fall, and his redemption) and they are The Invisible and Catch Me If You Can.
