...a few years back mine was a film called 'ill bury you tomorrow'..

The acting was cheesy and what not, but I thought for a low budget film it was good and very different from the usual stuff like cops n robbers...

Anyone else seen this film?

Or any other weird film?

I first saw Eraserhead at a college film society screening on a small screen with a crappy projector. It broke down completely half way through which was a mighty relief. I have the soundtrack album on vinyl, that's easy listening all right.

Saw '8 and a Half' by Fellini as an impressionable (some would say pretentious ) teenager in the Eighties and thought it was the oddest, most dreamlike thing I'd ever seen. Gave me a taste for most things in black and white with subtitles in my formative years! (Got it on Video many many years later and it still held up to my young memories)

But I'd go with 'Last Year at Marienbad' for 'strangest'...still not sure whether it's a masterpiece or not, but it intrigues me to this day. Not far off is 'Seconds' with Rock Hudson. Brrrr.

(Couldn't get through 'Eraserhead' tbh...I was freaked out after about 10 minutes. )

Probably this film is up there, Possession (1980) with Sam Neill and Isabelle Adjani, it's on You Tube in it's entirety if anyone wants to check it out, I'll not spoil it by saying what the weird bits are but it was as unsettling and odd as Eraserhead imo.

Another choice would be http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3xoXq0WSfSA Dans Ma Peu (2002) it is not only insanely weird in places but a very difficult film to watch in the unsettling, creeping feeling it gives you. I nearly fainted at some scenes!

A Kenneth Anger film in an art gallery ( "Lucifer Rising" ?)

Fascinating and odd stuff about bikers,
flying saucers, and Marianne Faithfull.

Paris Trout was pretty vile and disturbing. 8 Femmes was another one that was just bonkers - the song and dance routines and the fight that becomes a lesbian songfest were just odd.

The Doors.

The most boring, pretentious film, about the most boring, pretentious band.

"The cook, the thief, his wife and her lover" was pretty weird.
Also, "Triangle" in 2009.
What about "Donny Darko" for mainstream weird.

Dont know the name of it, saw it in Egypt one night, there was a bloke who thought there were bugs under his skin, wrapped his whole apartment up in tin foil and was taking drugs, eventually some woman was roped into it with him, and i vaguely remember them cutting their skin off to free the bugs.
It is probably a well known mainstream film, but id never seen it before,

There was a very strange film called Society from around 1989 which I remember.

Basket Case is another.

Eraserhead definitely, Recently on Film4, Hobo with a Shotgun wasn't so much "out there" weird, more abysmal. Rutger Hauer, dear oh dear.

Lots to consider, but I'll opt for Meshes of the Afternoon.

Made in 1943 and running a mere quarter of an hour. But deeply odd with some truly striking imagery.

I agree with a lot already mentioned, Eraserhead, Society, Bad Taste in particular.

Few others:

Freaks(1932) The cast were all genuine circus freaks.

Cloud Atlas - Recent film made up of 6 stories starring the same actors in each but playing different roles including different sexes and races, set in 6 different time periods and 6 different film genres, and the film randomly switches between the 6 stories throughout. Needs to be watched a few times and a real Marmite film, personally I loved it.

That's 'Bug'.

I didn't expect to ever see a mention of Maya Deren's works here. But yeah, her works are an inspiration to quite a few film editors and film theorists. (I'm not that keen on Meshes. A Study in Choreography for the Camera is a favourite. Mostly because it's one of massive influences on my editing.) Moving on. Your mention of Meshes has cheered me up. Thanks for that.

I think Little Otik is probably the strangest film I've ever seen.

Also Being John Malkovich is pretty weird for a mainstream film.

Another film is called freaks...an old BW film which was banned before, I have it on DVD?..about circus performers..one has no arms or legs, one is half man half woman etc...

I can no longer C&P from youtube, dunno what they have changed.

The weirdest looking woman ever has to be Linda Leven from the film I mentioned in this thread...
Linda Leven, frightening !!
