Strangest Film You've Ever Seen?
 
Just as the title asks, what are some of the oddest movies you've ever seen? I'm a fan of cheap B movies so I've seen quite a few oddballs. Here's just a few of the strangest:

Hard Rock Zombies - As you can imagine, there's "hard" rock and zombies. A rock band travels to a backwater town and is killed by a strange family only to be brought back to life to exact revenge. Also contains ghouls, 80's music montages, Nazis, rednecks, necrophilia, a knife-wielding wheelchair-bound werewolf granny, octogenarian sex, the worst Psycho tribute I've ever seen, death via weedwhacker, a near-pedophiliac relationship for the main character, octogenarian sex, and Adolf Hitler. Also, a midget eats himself.

Putney Swope - The jive cat Putney Swope accidentally becomes the chairman of an advertising industry. He fires just about everyone and decides to bring morals and standards into the business. It doesn't sound too strange, but this film just has a lot of odd dialogue. Characters will walk around repeating phrases 6 or 7 times, others they'll make off-handed comments that out of context aren't really funny and make even less sense in context, but it works. The US president is a pot smoking midget for some reason who's campaign is funded by a Nazi's car company. I don't get it.

Greaser's Palace - Jesus in a pinstripe suit parachutes down to small old western town run by the evil saloon owner, who suffers from horrible constipation. It gets weirder.

Nazi's at the Center of the Earth - Just from the title you know this one is going to be weird. Certainly enough it has nazis living at the center of the Earth, led by Josef Mengele. But no, the writers went above and beyond, and the final half of this film has nazi zombies digging up through Antartica's crust in a massive swastika-covered UFO piloted by Robo-Hitler and oh my god i cant believe I'm typing this

Any other titles out there? I enjoy this weird movies.

For me it's a tie between The Human Centipede Second Sequence and Teeth. Also, I need to check out Nazi's at the Center of the Earth. Sounds like it'd be worth a watch.

I remember seeing the movie Sunshine at the cinema and just being baffled as to what the hell was going on, I got the main plot but then I got completely lost when some mutant creature showed up and started killing people

But by far the weirdest is "Visitor Q", just truly bizarre

Like a well produced movie, or a made-to-be confusing as all get out movie? I'd say Pi.
Spoiler for Pi's story:
I think the guy figured out how Pi works in predicting life? maybe that was it? then he started flipping shit because of it and saw a Brain that wasn't real in the subway. But then it was real, but it still wasn't. Then some Hebrews attacked him, then he drilled his head to get rid of the formula, I think? Fucking weird.

Maybe I'll throw in Crank. It's in my top five favorite movies, but it's strange. There are so many little things thrown into the movie you have to watch it multiple times to catch:
Spoiler for Crank secrets:

everytime it goes into a bird's eyeview, it shows google maps down at the bottom. everytime his phone rings, the ringtone gets softer and softer like a dying heart beat (his dying heart beat). When Chevy is running through the mall, there are projections on the walls of him running through the mall as well as Doc Miles who he is talking to on the phone. The elevator scene where he talks to the chinese guy who goes through different people in his life (his mum, Rickie, himself).

for that kind of a movie, being thought of as just another action movie, it was definitely strange.

Depend of what you understand for strange...

In Cinema, almost all the rules can be easily broken always if the film requires it.

At a formal level there are infinty of extreme projects, probably the most radical thing i saw was Branca de neve a "sonorus" film in wich there are 3 o 4 random scenes, actors telling text and the majority of the movie happens to be only a black fond.


Others things can be the experiments of Warhol, things like Empire or Sleep.

Other example is Satantango (Masterpiece), a 7 hours film in wich Bela Tarr tries to expand travellings for the longest time possible, the result is beatiful. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wA2APi0cTYY)


If you are only talking about plots, then you can put here any "surrealist" thing on earth begining with Bu˝uel and Lynch or almost any serie b film.

One of my favorites in this regard is Tsai Ming Liang, the man is really crazy
