    Well, I wouldn't want to give away the plot to someone who hadn't seen it, but I did think THE PHANTOM THREAD had elements of VERTIGO (i.e., obsession). And just the way the director kept you hanging about how much everyone actually knew and what the main female character's real motivations were in doing what she was trying to do to Daniel Day Lewis' character. I agree, it was a great film.

    This does look bizarre. The first movie I thought of when I saw this title was Gummo. I saw that movie years ago when a friend of mine from Kansas City told me about it. He warned me it was a bit "odd." Odd it was. Can't say I liked it though.

    Another odd one (and definitely more mainstream) was "The Cook The Theif His Wife and Her Lover." I just remember thinking that the entire set was so strange and odd. However, I only saw it once, but remember liking it. I have to watch that one again.

    What did you find "profound" in Gummo? This isn't a challenge, its a genuine question. Having seen it so long ago, the bath scene scene and a general sense of strange is all I remember about it. It must have made some kind of impression on me because I don't think I'll ever forget it. Thx.

    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.
    Eraserhead and Little Otik sprang to my mind too.

    Then there's Private Vices, Public Virtues ...not a great film, but enlivened by the appearance of a hermaphrodites in the sex scene. I took my girlfriend at the time, claiming it was an art movie. We both came out giggling.

    I thought Naked Lunch was really weird. Then I read the book.
    Brazil is pretty twisted too.

    What greater comfort does time afford than the objects of terror re-encountered and their fraudulence exposed in the flash of reason?
