    Eraserhead - David Lynch
    The Holy Mountain - Alejandro Jodorowsky
    The Color of Pomegranates - Sergei Parajanov
    Gummo - Harmony Korine
    Possession - Andrzej Żuławski

    All of these, I think, I can safely categorize as of the "have to be seen to be believed" variety, lol.

    I just saw THE PHANTOM THREAD and thought it was pretty "weird" in a Hitchcockian way.

    Weird is usually good for the Deacon, but Lynch's "Inland Empire" is HOURS of ultimate NOTHING.

    A real slog.

    Tedium.





    Is this movie for real or made to bore-to-death?

    Roger Corman's horror movie Bucket of Blood is unsettlingly weird, about a busboy in a beatnik coffee house who wants to be an artist, so he kills people, covers them with clay, and displays them as art.

    Peter Schickele introduced the movie to me through his radio show as being notable for its horribly bad poetry reading at the beginning but featuring some exquisite solo saxophone playing by Paul Horn - which is the only reason I've seen it three times.

    And despite the promo poster, I never got sick, sick, sick from laughing.

    From the ever-amazing director Miike Takashi (Miike not Mike). Some of you may have seen "Audition" and if you have then you know what he specializes in. As usual, it's beautifully shot and extremely well-directed--nothing left to chance, in the tradition of the best Japanese movies.

    But, rest assured, this is NOT "The Makioka Sisters." As with "Audition" this movie is stark, harsh and merciless. When it happens, you see it--no cutaways or out-of-focus or just-out-of-camera range shots. It's as brutal and disturbing as it is beautiful.

    While this is a Japanese movie, it was made for an American audience. It's done in English--no captions--and stars Billy Drago (if the name isn't familiar, you've seen him). It takes place in 19th century Japan. A Westerner looking for a geisha he had fallen in love with. If you think this is going to be yet another white man-goes-to-Japan-and-finds-the-love-of-his-life movie then you've never seen a Miike film before. That's the last thing this movie is about.

    Be forewarned, it is not for the squeamish. Parts of this movie are excruciating to watch--just excruciating and just when you think the plot can't get anymore sick and twisted, it does--in a totally unexpected way.

    But like all Miike movies, as excruciating and mind-blowing as it gets, you'll watch "Imprint" again and again because it's riveting--if your stomach can take it, I mean.

    "God," asked Adam, "why did you make Eve so beautiful?"
    And He replied, "So that you could love her."
    "But God," asked Adam, "why did you make her so stupid?"
    And He replied, "So that she could love you."

    I mostly watch avant garde films, so they're all pretty weird, but here are a few that are also well worth watching:

    OLIVER LAXE Mimosas




    ILDIKO ENYEDI My Twentieth Century




    MARGUERITE DURAS Le Camion (1977)



    Stars Depardieu, sort of.

    Derek Jarman’s ‘Sebastiane’ with dialogue solely in Latin. Never sure if it was genius or pretentious twaddle, probably both. Certainly beautifully filmed. I’m far from its target audience but sort of enjoyed it!

    I'm a big lover of Japanese and Asian horror movies so I second Victor Redseal's endorsement of 'Imprint'. It's uncompromising stuff and a great film (although nowhere as near as disturbing as the terrific French horror 'Martyrs'). However if you can manage subtitles and want to watch 3 batsh*t crazy films then try these 3:

    Survive Style 5+
    What's not to like in this film? It's got it all - a salesman who thinks he's a bird, a wife who won't die and Vinnie Jones delivering the same line over and over again. Utterly bizarre and highly addictive.

    Versus
    A resurrection forest full of zombies, nutters, martial arts masters and weapons. Mental but great to watch.

    Funky Forest: First Contact
    Quite the strangest film I've watched. A collection of bizarre short scenarios (often revolving around a pair of annoying brothers) but with surreal scenes. There's also musical numbers in this. It's mad as hell and the bit with the TV in the corridor is utterly bizarre. Don't try and read up on it. Just watch it. Crackers!

    I'm not going to say anything about this one. Just see it. But part of you will wish like hell that you never had.

    El Topo comes to mind. Eraserhead is a contender. More recently was Crystal Fairy and the Magical Cactus...

    NAKED LUNCH by David Cronenberg. Soundtrack by Howard Shore and Ornette Coleman. Great cast. Hallucinogenic. Beware the bug powder! Based on the William S Burroughs novel that hardly anyone thought would ever be published.

    the entire movie is a mere build up to last brilliant montage scenes accompanied by Mozart's Requiem!
