    Strange Movies

    I never thought that "Eraserhead" could be topped for weirdness.

    I just finished watching "Barton Fink".

    Would someone please explain just what the heck was up with that ending?

    Strange but cool movie: Memento
    Strange movie that actually made me throw up: Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas (admittedly I was preggers at the time)
    Strangest movie that spouse has brought back from the rental store: Pi
    Strangest movie that was nothing like the ads & trailers: Dude, Where's My Car

    Sorry Randy, I didn't see Barton Fink. My dad talks about it occasionally like it haunted him.

    Memento was a very cool movie.
    Heard about Fear and Loathing...passed on it.
    Pi is one I'm going to rent pretty soon.

    I read up on Barton Fink over at imdb.com. Still not totally sure about it, but at the very least it was a movie that made you think. Not enough of those around.

    One very strange movie is Donnie Darko. It's really good though. It has Jake Gyllenhaal as the main guy. Patrick Swayze is even in it. Also, Harvard Man with Sarah Michelle Gellar is really awesome too. It's pretty messed-up though. I still love it! Ahhh Sarah.

    I think David Lynch deserves his picture in the dictionary next to the word "strange", and I've only seen Mulholland Drive.

    Being John Malkovich was too strange for me, especially Malkovich's trip inside his own head.

    Requiem for a Dream was plenty strange, among other things.

    I thought Magnolia was beautifully unique.

    I also thought Apocalypse Now was pretty wierd.

    I had a lot of fun watching Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

    For a romantic comedy, Secretary was unusual.

    If I started going into anime titles I could probably fill the page, so I'll start and stop with The Ghost in the Shell.

    I've seen Barton Fink too, but I'm not even going to try.

    Agree with the David Lynch comment, kchamber. If you thought Mulholland Drive was a bizarre one, try Blue Velvet for a surreal mindtrip. Nightmare-inducing.

    Also over-the-top was Naked Lunch. David Cronenberg (shudder).

    A silly, weird druggie movie I just saw was Spun. Mickey Rourke as a muscle-bound drug dealer. For anyone who enjoyed Drugstore Cowboy or Requeim for a Dream.

    >>>>>>>>That's one of my favorite movies. It's from the same guy who made Pi.

    Anyone seen Big Fish? It looks like the strangest movie in theaters.

    Heard Big Fish is a real tear-jerker. Will wait until it comes out on dvd.

    It looks interesting from the commercial, but Burton is real hit or miss for me.

    He does make strange movies for sure.
