Weirdest movie ever?

    Has to be something in relatively wide release. Obviously, there are plenty of underground art-school films that could weird anything else under the table.

    Off the top of my head, just to get things going:

    "Barton Fink"
    "Mulholland Drive"

    I'll still put in for 2001 - I've read countless reviews on the movie, seen it more than three times and still don't understand its point.

    And Cronenberg's "Crash" has to be in the conversation.

    Requiem for a Dream.
    Natural Born Killers.

    No more callers; We have a winner.

    I still can't look at Woody Harrelson and not think of that movie.

    Of all of the movies Oliver Stone has done in his life, he has to look back at that and say "What the bloody hell was I on during this movie?"

    In no particular order:

    A Clockwork Orange
    2001: A Space Odyssey

    Agree on Crash and Requiem

    NBK is a strange movie, but I don't see it as being nearly as strange as some of the David Lynch stuff out there...

    Donnie Darko is another one that I'd list.

    Considering some of the stuff he's made since, he should get back on it. :D

    I saw Delicatessen in college. That definitely belongs on this list.

    How have no Nic Cage movies been mentioned so far?

    "Adaptation" deserves a mention.

    Val Kilmer did a movie called Wonderland about 10 years ago -- it was a biopic of John Holmes and a triple murder that he may or may not have been involved in. Extraordinarily bizarre subject matter, but the acting and filmmaking contributed to the weirdness too.

    However, it also made excellent use of Gordon Lightfoot.

    Wow, good call on Mulholland Drive, Dick. Extremely weird, even for Lynch. Blue Velvet is another one.

    Good call on Adaptation...
