Hey,
I'm having a weird issue with my late 2011 Macbook Pro. Last week my screen was buggy, and removing gfxCardStatus and f.lux from my machine seemed to fix it. This week it's been happening again. Here are some pictures.
(The weird thing is that this occurs when i'm not doing any graphic intensive things, ie browsing on Google Chrome.)

does tilting the screen in different angles make the issue better or worse?

Neither - my machine works fine 99% of the time. The problems occur most often when i'm using Chrome watching youtube vids in the background, or Spotify. Sometimes, though, the crashes seem to be completely random. Could the problem be with Flash?

Also, restarting (usually) brings the machine back to normal operation.

That would be a strange flash issue to affect the entire screen. You can create a new user account and log into that to see if it is a setting issue, but I'm guessing it'll end up being a logic board issue.
