    And I remember a very strange film about the Monkees, called Head (I remember a scene with Frank Zappa and a cow).

    Some pictures from L'ange (The angel)




    good suggestions. I really like so called weird movies.

    well, there's no problem for L'ange or Head, but probably it's better you'd read something about the "trash masterpiece" Pink Flamingos before you decide to watch it, especially if you want to watch it with someone else. It's a movie about people who'd like to win the title for the filthiest person alive. This includes pornography, incest (well, at least that is not real), the real death of a chicken, and other similar things. The director, John Waters, likes to call himself "the king of vomit".
    It's an important movie, but it's DEFINITELY not a movie for everyone.

    About animation, Asparagus and Joy Street (I loved especially the second) are definitely very weird and worth to be seen. Asparagus was usually coupled with Eraserhead and as the Lynch's title is a surreal and dark movie.

    And probably everything made by Jan Svankmeyer could be mentioned here.

    In Italy there's an extremely creative and strange thriller of Giulio Questi (with music of Bruno Maderna) made in 1968 called La morte ha fatto l'uovo (I don't know if there's a english title) that could be mentioned too.

    And don't forget Derek Jarmans'Blue.

    The Cook, the Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover, Peter Greenaway.

    I read in a review at the time that Greenaway was "the kind of bully who drags you down to the beach and kicks art in your face."

    This mysterious statement must mean something, but I don't think I have the courage to explore what, especially in a thread about weird films.

    One of the strangest films I remember seeing was "My Own Private Idaho," which was glowingly recommended on a Siskel and Ebert show. Apparently, it was a kind of modern adaptation of Henry V, with occasional snippets of a house falling from the sky onto the middle of a road (as a image of narcolepsy, which was a condition of one of the main characters). I am not sure that it lives up to the competition posted here, but I am still not quite sure what I was watching.
