There's no shortage of ugliness in the world

The House is Black (1962), Iranian proto-New Wave documentary of a leper colony, only film from Forough Farrokhzad, crucial female poet. Totally remarkable, dark as pitch, and pitch perfect.

Thanks to Jeff over at Dossier for the reminder that this exists.
