 Speaking of Lars Van Triers...I once had a movie directed by him called the IDIOTS. It was about a kinda weird sect of people who would go around in public,pretending to be insane,or mentally retarded. They were trying to get in touch with their 'inner idiot". Really weird ass stuff. Anybody elese seen this thing?

  Dean-I use to own a copy of ZENTROPA, and, while beautiful to look at...it got way to confusing for me! It was nice to see Eddie (Lemmy Caution) Constantine back on screen. Udo Kier too! And the bathtub scene was bizzare!

ERASERHEAD (1977)

Some Surreal Herzog:
EVEN DWARFS STARTED SMALL (1970)
THE ENIGMA OF KASPAR HAUSER aka EVERY MAN FOR HIMSELF AND GOD AGAINST ALL (1974)
HEART OF GLASS (1976)
STROSZEK (1977)
FITZCARRALDO (1982)
 

I don't know if I'd consider Fitzcarraldo too surreal, but it's certainly got its odd moments and it's really a lovely and majestic film.  And Stroszek isn't too unusual until the end and it becomes something else entirely and I love it!  I think Aguirre, the Wrath of God and Fata Morgana also qualify.

2001: A Space Odyssey has been mentioned and I'm still feeling the effects from watching it last night.  It's my second viewing and it was just as powerful as my first.  You know what would be awesome?  Since this was originally released with some 70mm prints, Warner Bros. ought to have some 70mm IMAX prints made and release this next year for its 40th anniversary.  Watching this in an IMAX presentation would be amazing.

Other mind-benders:

The Trial (1962) -- This is an awesome and frightening Orson Welles film based on the Kafka novel.
Picnic at Hanging Rock
Save the Green Planet
The Illustrated Man --  This is a very flawed film, and not exactly a great adaptation, but it's pretty weird and open ended.
A. I. -- I think this movie is underrated.

  BRAIN DAMAGE! The weird ass movie with Bud Cort and Bill Pullman!!! Whatta wild, freaky movie!
 David Lynch's LOST HIGHWAY is pretty dam confusing..and as much as I wanted to like it...it totally confused the  hell out of me...it left me frustrated and p**sed off. I did enjoy Robert Blake in pancake makeup,though.

Here's my list off the top of my head (in no particular order):

1.  Donnie Darko
2.  The Thirteenth Floor
3.  The Prestige
4.  Ultraviolet (I think this one was just a trash movie)
5.  Eraserhead


I'll post more if I can think of them.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
