    I saw that movie once, a few years ago. I remember wondering, are these people ever going to be able to sit down and eat?

    Miracle Mile (1988). Light, romantic comedy abruptly switches into a frenetic end of the world thriller.

    Watched this film just now. Something with the editing and connection of shapes, motions make some real visual impact. But it's still pretty weird in terms of narrative.

    Pink Flamingos uses it's weirdness as a tool. Consider also the period: it was made in a intolerant, homophobic, bigot and repressive america. And all the obscenities and the questionable things in Pink Flamingos were like a giant middle finger that repression and the Hays code.
    About Eraserhead, for what I remember I think it should be seen as a surreal nightmare. Nightmares can be fascinating, and that's what a lot of David Lynch cinema is about.

    I watched that last night after seeing your post. It's quite entertaining.

    I agree, it's entartaining and it's also a brilliant and very original horror movie.
    And I think it inspired a certain kind of experimental cinema, like Tetsuo or 964 Pinocchio (at least in a certain way, unlike Hausu those two aren't funny at all and are actually quite disturbing), that are two movies that certainly could be mentioned in this thread for their weirdness

    Holy S. That trailer says a lot. I read a general synopsis somewhere, and was interested only in seeing how it ends. Here is a french subtitled version.

    Im a pretty edgy and ''unconventional'' person myself but I never cared 4 Lynch much...I always thought he does things 4 shock value only...I liked 1st seasn of Twin Pix but l8r I got kinda lost in lost message of series...If there ever was 1!!!

    This is a great Australian movie with the laconic humour. Of course, nowadays this would be censored out because not politically correct. "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert"!
