What is the weirdest movie you've seen?

Asked by nighttripper (162points) May 9th, 2008

By weird I mean sort of trippy like Alice in Wonderland or Requiem for a Dream.

A Clockwork Orange, Stanley Kubrick’s best.

it was a movie with billy zane, black and white, some guy getting killed with a plastic bag, extreme weird, oh, and ofcourse π, what a weird one was that

Some of thouse don’t sound that weird…

The weirdest for me has got to be The Wall. My old roomate was a big Pink Floyd fan and practically made me watch it. I was compleatly sober when I saw it so all I could do was scratch my head and raise my eyebrows.

Altered States has some really trippy imagery. Ken Russell directed it and put in some really freaky psychedelic drug scenes. Not to mention a lot of naked, young William Hurt butt.

@breedmitch Alter states was WEIRD! wtf with that movie. I dont really think it was really all that great but interesting to say the least.

breedmitch's avatar

@uber: Great? No, not so much. I do this film series thing here in NY and we recently screened it. I have to say, some of the imagery was great, but some of the regressed-monkey-man stuff just comes across as campy. It is interesting, however, that all the effects are pre-CGI.

El_Cadejo's avatar

Oh yes ill definitely agree the imagery was great for its time.<pictures him walking down the hallway at the end banging the walls shape shifting> The story was horrible though.

El_Cadejo's avatar

Human Traffic was awesome. Pretty funny too.

probably fear and loathing in las vegas….it totally threw me off. that or the movie with maculay culkin as a drag queen.

I can’t bevieve that I’m the twenty second person to input and I’m only the first one to mention John Lynch’s “Eraserhead.” Great movie. I especially like the radiator girl. “Freaks” is another good one, from the 1930’s.

breedmitch's avatar

@Chuck: The third response mentioned Eraserhead.

AstroChuck's avatar

@breedmitch- Sorry, I’m challenged. I just saw that. Duh. I guess I can’t read. But at least no one else mentioned “Freaks.” Right?

AstroChuck's avatar

I forgot “City of Lost Children.” Not a bad flick but very strange.

Abigail’s Party channeled my love of film to an entirely new direction.

I need to start reading the sub question. Abigail’s Party isn’t trippy like David Lynch trippy, more off-the-wall/unbelievable trippy.

Catch 22 – great idea, terrible interpretation for entertainment value.

Hedwig and the Angry Inch

whatthefluther's avatar

A Clockwork Orange (as already mentioned) is the first one that comes to mind. Also, perhaps, Boxing Helena. I very much liked the former, but did not care for the latter (if I recall, David Lynch’s daughter did the film).

DeezerQueue's avatar

Eraserhead, by David Lynch. I see that astrochuck tupara list it as well.

After that, Basket Case.

TheHaight's avatar

nayeight, think you’re talking about Party Monster and that movie is pretty odd!!

The Shining

cschack's avatar

Jodorowsky’s El Topo. We’ll never see its like again.

Wizard of Oz

digitaljesus's avatar

suprised nobody has mentioned this one: THX 1138 by George Lucas…. 2001 is also up there.

paulc's avatar

I think Gummo (trailer) is right up there for me.

Liquid Sky. Aliens that feed on endorphins kill off the main characters’ sexual partners as she has sex with them. (And no, it’s not porn. R-rated, I think)

Bubba Ho-Tep

AstroChuck's avatar

@boffon- Is that the Bruce Campbell Elvis and Ozzie Davis JFK flick?

Bub's avatar

The Dead Girl! I just saw it last night and man…

A Clockwork Orange

boffin's avatar

@AstroChuck Yes… Strange, odd…But funny film…..

The Yellow Submarine

msdduck's avatar

Brewster McCloud and Freaks are two really weird films.

witchhazel's avatar

Dream Catcher was very weird and very bad!

tupara's avatar

@cschack, good call on Jodorowsky, we’d have to add ‘Santa Sangre’ to the list. And shindo’s ‘Oni Baba’.

msdduck's avatar

8 1/2 is weird, Fellini was a strange dude.
