Usual Suspects, Momento, Seven, and Fight Club are probably the best, but Frailty is up there for me.


Isn't Bill Paxton in Fraility?


One of his best movies as far as I'm concerned.


I remember seeing the previews on television and thought it looked really good. I'll have to pick up and see it maybe next weekend.

I liked Frailty a lot the first time I watched it. Then, I went out and bought the DVD but could never get into it again. Good one-timer but that's all IMO.

I've got Lost Highway just sitting at home, waiting to be watched. I agree with Moon, David Lynch is a master of the mindbending movies.

Dune?? Loved the PC games, but thought the movie was horrible. :-t

I don't know about you guys, but Apocalypse Now still screws with my mind whenever I watch it.

The Evil Dead 2, of course if you induce some sort of alternate conciousness that would be better.

yeah...Lynch is whack. i have Eraserhead...that one's really weird

another movie worth checking out that's really whack is Steven Soderberg's (sp?) Schizopolis. might be hard to find for rent though, it's part of the Criterion Collection but it's truly bizarre
