Join me in feeling all kinds of strange, for better or for worse.
Wow, I haven’t seen any of these. Excited to give a few of them a try. I had been excited about Bones and All because I’m a fan of Timothy. Nice to know it’s worth the time. Excellent list!
I haven’t seen any of these movies. Now they are on my summer watch list. Thank you, Nadia!
Wow, some fabulous films I have yet to see!
I saw Otesanek at too young an age, that was freaky. XD You're right about how powerful the story is, and what it says about human urges and longing is as powerful as the art of the motion picture can get. Erben's folk tale is suitable for kids though, be they kids of flesh or kids made of wood. :D Kytice (the Czech title was kept in English translation) is a must for fans of Slavic literature and fairy tales.
Okay I’m scared now 😱
Love your intro and the beautiful writing in descriptions too :)
I went into Bones and All with zero clue what it was about and wow did that first scene surprise me!! Love feeling strange, can’t wait to sink my teeth into all these others 🙏
This is the first I've heard of any of these movies! I think I'll try #6 first.
i love this list. Are you a yorgos lanthimos fan? All his stuff is great (The Lobster is the most well known I think?) but his first movie Dogtooth is so fucking wild I feel like you'd dig it based on this list. Also The Killing of a Sacred Deer
And then in a similar vein but less...dark, all of Ruben Ostlund's stuff -- The Square is my favorite , Force Majeure is a classic, and then his newest one Triangle ofSadness is fantastic lol
OH! A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence! Start with this one if you haven't seen it its so fucking gooooood https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JGwGyo5Ywpo
What an excellent selection! Thanks for sharing, Nadia. Adding all of them to my watchlist. Always good to get a little weird, right?! 😆
Otik is on the top of my list ever since you mentioned it on Notes a while back. So weird!
I have not seen any of them so that's a great addition to my ever-growing imdb watchlist.
As to weird movies, I'd have to think, Me and You and Everyone We Know (2005) springs to mind, maybe more eccentric than weird, though.
I have never seen any of these films and this is a very interesting curation! I will check out the Timothy Chalamet one! Thank you for this
Men was great. Will look for the others.
Big fan of Hausu as well.
I had to stop watching Men halfway through.
Admittedly, I am a huge baby.
This is a pretty nice selection! I haven't heard of half of the titles here and am really interested in 'Come True' now. I've seen Hausu and it's insane! Like, I think I first learned of it when I attended a a panel on "the weirdest Japanese movies you've never seen."
If I could add a title to this list, it would be Sabu's "Monday," an obscure masterpiece that is hard to find outside Japan. Years before 'The Hangover,' THIS was the movie about what happens when you lose your memory after drinking for a long time. I keep meaning to write about it but can never find the time sadly. Here's a trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dR3TDPgrfHA&t
