    I see what your saying but I don't think anyone who views the picture for the first time has a clear and definitive understanding of the film, it takes a couple viewings and some time to think about it. I think he (Kubrick) succeeded admirably.

    Well the first time I saw it I thought this:

    "Wow! Beautiful, dramatically paced, evolution, technology, we are animals, aliens"

    Am I too observant?

    Not sure I would call this the weirdest film I've ever seen, but a movie described as the first Iranian feminist romantic vampire spaghetti western movie (shot entirely in black and white) has to be up there..

    Plus it has a killer (pun intended) soundtrack.

    Not weird but a massive headf*ck. There's an explanation of how this film works on the internet (with diagrams) and I still find it hard to follow.



    However, David Lynch's Inland Empire is very strange.



    Oh, and another vote for Eraserhead.

    Perfect Sense, a sci fi film about a worldwide plague in which people lose their 5 senses, one by one. The principle characters are a high end restaurateur and a scientist trying to solve the mystery ailment who meet and fall in love amidst all this. It doesn't end well. After losing smell, taste, hearing and sight, the world is in chaos and destruction, but the couple gets together. So? I never understood the point of it.

    And of course...Sgt Kabukiman NYPD. A Troma production (Who Else?)

    In general I think weird movies are boring. Here are three that aren't. The first is (IMHO) the greatest movie ever made (YMMV):

    There are a couple of contenders, but the last weird film that I watched was Upstream Color
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2084989/

    I can think of a lot of weird television, though:

    The Prisoner - "Fall Out" (made by Patrick McGoohan on inspiration and a nervous breakdown; pure '60s, with revolution and the Beatles)
    The Strange World of Gurney Slade
    Jonathan Miller's Alice in Wonderland (Ah, the '60s! When surrealism could be broadcast to a mainstream audience)
    Lots of Out of the Unknown

    Film and television has declined since the '60s, hasn't it? (Says he, aged barely 34.)
    Excellent submissions!

    For weird scenes -- Jack Torrance and Delbert Grady in the restroom, The Shining. A deep, terrifying encounter. For once, Jack Nicholson is upstaged.
