All the crazy ladies (don't put a ring on it)

I'm looking for more movies of a specific crazy/independent lady vibe, and this vague vibe spans genre: I want movies about women folk, especially ones with a witty or dark streak. I'm thinking of films like Heathers
, The Piano
, Portrait of a Lady
, Virgin Suicides
, All About Eve
, Winter's Bone
and Ghost World
. What else should I see?

Question is spurred by my recent rewatching of The Piano! Off the top of my head, other examples include Closer, Bluebeard, Lost in Translation, Lovely & Amazing, Bright Star, and Frida.
The movie must pay close attention to the inner machinations of a female character, and less-than-mainstream is a plus since I've seen most of the movies that share the same directors or screenwriters as the films listed above.
For whatever reason, I really disliked Amélie, which seems to be the standard recommendation when I ask around for new movies.
Thank you in advance!
