    12 monkeys, The Elephant Man, Being John Malcovitch (SP?), and DEFINITLY Adaptation are all on my list. I've rented Brazil 3 times but never had time to watch it.

    I've added Brazil, Wild at Heart and Blue Velvet to my 'gotta see' list. I am also thinking about going out and buying the DVD set of Twin Peaks. I haven't seen a single episode of it, my brother was obsessed for a while there, I am very curious.



    Mulholland Drive is David Lynch also, if you haven't seen it, check it out. If you don't get it, don't worry, neither did I. You can watch it a second time and hope you catch on, or just go read enough reviews and you'll understand.

    time bandits is great, its odd, funny, and the ending is perfect.

    especially if you love movies in which the main characters are 6 midgets.

    Twin Peaks is exellent m8 and you can get all the episodes if u look hard enough.Id reccommend 'Identity' if you have'nt already seen it,very strange,good directing,acting,plot ect.And you will NEVER guess the ending.Heres a few more:

    Dark City.(weird)
    Audition(shocking)
    Vanilla Sky(weird)
    Frailty(Damn good film,shocking)
