    Just watched 200 Motels (hadn't seen it for awhile), last night, got to the Half a dozen Provocative Squats bit and the wife comes in as says what are you watching one of your crazy movies I guess. So I just told her she was correct.

    This one is pretty weird:
    "All of Italian opera can be heard in [Bellini's] "Ah! non creda [mirarti]."
    --Renata Scotto in "Scotto, More Than a DIva."

    ^^ I thought it was a Dylan impersonator in a throwback 60's movie until I read the Wikipedia on the title.

    Not the weirdest I've ever watched, but I thought THE PHANTOM THREAD (2018) was a little strange. But that's probably because I was expecting a "romance" film rather than a Hitchcockian suspense film.

    Hurlements en faveur de Sade (Guy Debord 1952)

    In my opinion one of the most extreme films ever made. The film alternates between a white image (when text is spoken) and darkness (when the film is silent)
    In the beginning of the film light (dialogue, spoken text) alternates with silent stetches of darkness.
    (Unbearable for general audiences; but right up the sleeve of certain artsy types...)
    Gradually the silent dark stretches become longer and longer.
    The film ends after half an hour of silent darkness.(quite unbearable even for artsy types.)

    Full film => https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U8o3ue5-lA8

    I loved it and also thought it was a little strange, but that was what made it so great and unique. How do you think it incorporated Hitchcockian suspense?

    It's a masterpiece. There are so many darkly beautiful and touching scenes. The movie is the definition of "poignant." Not to mention it was the last film Pasolini ever directed and he's one of the most important directors ever!

    Harmony Korine who directed it is one of my favorite directors ever. This film is okay but if you want to see a film by him I would recommend Gummo which is truly touching besides all of the shock value! look at this scene. There is a part where the boys hair falls down (at 2:00) and the camera lingers on it for what feels like a minute, its so gorgeous and subtle. Cinematic poetry. Werner Herzog claims he became an admirer of Korine, later acting in his masterpiece IMO Julien Donkey Boy, when he saw the bacon on the wall in this scene

    Most of the Kung Fu movies from the 1970s are a bit silly (and generally recycle the same basic revenge plot), but a few I have seen recently are truly bizarre. They have actors who not only do stunts assisted by wires and trampolines, but who literally fly or levitate, vanish and reappear, and make swords fly and spin around without holding them. One had cheaply animated ghosts and people who had their flesh ripped off of their bodies by some kind of meditation spell, and another spell caused by extravagant forced laughter. I believe it was called Holy Flame of the Martial World. There was another one where one of the main battles was between several people and a man in a sedan chair. The chair was carried by four large men, and was rigged with sword blades, throwing daggers and even small missiles. It was really crazy, but I forget the name of the movie.

    Edit: While trying to find the name of the movie with the fighting chair in it, which one would think shouldn't be so hard to find, I came across this list of strange movies: http://flavorwire.com/476770/the-50-...-made/view-all (It includes Gummo, already noted.)

    Edit2: I think I found the movie with the fighting chair, and it is called Shaolin Prince. (It also features three very silly monks who are supposedly superlative fighters, which seems to be part of an Asian folk tradition of specially skilled people who are mad or drunks.)

    Gummo is one of those movies that I have had on my list of stuff to watch for a long time, so I'll definitely watch it (and I didn't know that Herzog was a fan of it, that's a very good reason to see it for me). I saw a few scenes on youtube already and it seems a fascinating work.
    I didn't liked too much Spring breakers though. Not a terrible movie, but maybe I was expecting too much.

    Doesn't get much weirder than this.
    "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."

    Glad youre interested in him!! There's a lot of critical analysis of his works and to me at least they're very profound but it's rare that I find a genuine fan of his.

    Personally, I love Spring Breakers. Im very young so the soundtrack to the movie is basically the soundtrack to my childhood and im in love with the neon aesthetic. (I have a taste for bright/colorful/neon films in general though. Films like Wild at Heart (Lynch), Enter the void (Noe), Drive (Winding Refn), Good Time (Safdie bros), etc.) It's hard to enjoy it as a traditional movie as everyone is so shallow and dumb but I do think you can enjoy it very much as a satire, a parody, a farce, etc. I think it really captures the pop-cultural ethos of the generation its set in.

    I would still rate Gummo and Julien Donkey Boy as his best, though. His other feature film Mister Lonely is very problematic, can't say I love it. Excited for his upcoming film too!
