What’s the strangest film you have seen ?

That question was posed on my twitter account @dialmformovies.  Followers were asked to respond with the name of the film and reason.
Below are some of the responses.
Feel free to add your entry at the bottom of this page

For the record, mine is ‘O Fantasma’

@Whittty7 –  ‘Bad Boy Bubba’
@SonicNirvanaJam –  ‘A Clockwork Orange’ ,  can sit through any film but that just gave me the creeps
@r10pez10 – Howl’s Moving Castle’, when I caught it on SBS that one time

@LouLumenick – Rowland Lee’s I AM SUZANNE! (1933), which I first saw @tcmfilmfest a couple of weeks ago, is up there.
@genoandrieri – Mulholland Drive’ is up there
@matthewheasly – Natural Born Killers’
@rharris334 – ‘Marnie’ I think. But it’s a classic

@CarrieRickey – What Dreams May Come’
@katwasmi – ‘Funny Games’
@brenplong – To some degree I would have to nominate ‘COSMOPOLIS’.
 Also, in it’s own strange way, ‘MIAMI VICE’. It gets crazy after Cuba!

@Mrs_Almi – Synecdoche New York’
@clarkandcarole – ‘Peau d’âne.’ very odd French film
@nellybabe – toss up between ‘Donnie Darko’ and ‘Eyes Wide Shut’

@DeusExCinema Pretty much anything by Jan Svankmejer.
@ajhill_alan – ‘Performance’, the original film with that name, starring James Fox and Mick Jagger.
@lisamalouf – Without a doubt, the strangest film I’ve ever seen:WARPED FOREST’ @ #SydFilmFest 2012. Resulted in the freakiest dreams too!

@Harri_Chas_17 – Dead Man’ was ‘good’ strange.
@nolanzebra3 – Strange as in weird?Naked Lunch’ is pretty bloody weird. ‘The Man Who Fell To Earth’ too.
@bensower – Taxidermia’ is right at the top of the list.

@PaulC_78 – The Human Centipede’
@tpjost – Wavelength‘ (1967)
@GenUrsus1965 musical British film ‘Up Jumped A Swagman’ – totally incomprehensible and bizzare.

@pcwesty – brutes and savages’, don’t ask why
@annarenz – The Saddest Music in the World’ – at #miff some 8-9 years ago!
@newcastleboyy – Last Year at Marienbad’ – a great film but beautifully confusing & existentialist at the same time

@keenproduction – Lynch’s Blue Velvet’ I love but definitely one of the most odd.
@jackarrgh – The Terror of Tiny Town’
@LizAgnes – ‘Black Moon’ by Louis Malle.

@vbsspurs – Eraserhead’ counts? Also, Inland Empire, but just because of the rabbit.
@Cineaste77 – My answer to this is always going to be HAUSU’. Always and forever
@JTICMattHenman – Zebraman’…

@cjwaine – ‘Time Bandits’. No question.
@gholson – VISITOR Q’ is up there for me.
@GusandLeo – “The Happiness of the Katakuris” or “Thankskilling” (which is also the worst)

@CLothesonFilm – Watched The Exorcist’ & ‘Exorcist 2′ on TV last night. Seeing both together made sequel seem utterly bonkers.
@tonyofvegas –The Seashell and the Clergyman’. Never understood surrealism in cinema. & Pink Flamingos’. I actually liked that 1.
@screeninsight –  ‘Human Centipede 2’   such a bad followup. How can it be the same director?

@sector_7g – Most Lynch films but particularly . ‘Twin Peaks – Fire Walk with Me.‘ Strange and disappointing.
@needlediva – I was 16 when i saw Godard’s “Weekend.” Would that count? It was certainly strange for me at the time.
@cosmopolis_blog – To some degree I would have to nominate COSMOPOLIS.’

@iAirborne – “The Tree of Life” – a bizarre mess, pretending to make a point through a story that made no sense at all.
@NeilCostley – ‘wristcutters’
@
PirateTotty – Hedwig and the angry inch’. Or Taxidermia’.

@jdotdashed – ‘Meet the Feebles (1989)’. It doesn’t get much stranger than that.
@SometimeSpez – ‘Beyond the Valley of the Dolls?’    That movie is like crack on LSD.
