Watch any movie by Michelangelo Antonioni. All of his movies, Red Desert being my favorite, just drip with existential dread over people's inability to truly communicate our feelings, trapped in lives we never meant to live.
As for books, you can never go wrong with Jean Paul Sartre and the rest of the absurdist artists.

I really liked L ' avventura . I love the pace of his films and the visual techniques he uses to portray a deeper meaning. I will definitely check Red desert out. Is jean paul a good author to start with considering i haven't read anything on the subject but do have natural philosophical leanings towards the nature of the human condition? I would like to immerse myself completely in a book that combines weird fiction as well as existential themes. Since i have been reading up on true detective a lot , the writer NIc Pizzalatto recommends Thomas Liggoti . HP lovecraft would also be one of the names that comes to mind ...
