    Anything with Johnny Depp in it (think Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas) would probably qualify for me.

    Yeah, Eraserhead is supposed to be an indy classic, but it's really bizarre.
    Also, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me or whatever the title is ..

    Blue Velvet and Wild at Heart both qualify. Never saw Mulholland Drive but wish I had. Man, Laura Dern in Wild at Heart...mmmm. And she was pretty good in Blue Velvet, too.

    I've got a couple of others: Spank the Monkey, House of Yes and The Professional.

    Mulholland Dr.; Wild at Heart; Twin Peaks; Blue Velvet; Eraserhead...

    Do I see a certain pattern of strangeness developing here?

    You can just throw anything David Lynch does in there, but Wild at Heart an Blue Velvet take the cake. Secretary was pretty out thre. I'm sure a million more will pop into my head as soon as I'm finished.

    Oh, and Roadhouse.

    Spaking the Monkey was pretty screwed just from a premise standpoint.

    Yes, that's it.

    I would add a movie called Drowning by Numbers.

    I think my avatar gives away my vote.

    'Pi' (the mathematical number) was an odd movie. I can't even remember if I made it all the way through.

    Lynch films and Clockwork Orange - great calls.

    Never saw Eraserhead.
