I would say THE APPLE, ANATOMY OF HELL, and waste-of-considerable-time CREMASTER films.

PRIMER... Maybe not completely bizzare but at the very least a bit strange and confusing.

as to the Cremaster Cycle films I only saw two parts of it and I have to say I thought the most memorable scene was the bee penis fornication scene - ewwwww!

First one I thought of was Jacobs Ladder. I'm not too fond of bizzare movies though.
What about Magnolia? WTF was all that about?

I wouldn't call Primer bizarre, it's just very tricky to follow. Imagine that Memento was a math class, you could call it Geometry. With Primer that would be Calculus II or some Computer Math class. These films can be understood eventually by following clues. Memento would be with a second viewing. With Primer it would be a thorough reading of some various reviews and 4 viewings to understand most of it.

As for Bizarre, I think Erasurehead more suits this field.
I just watched a movie called Reconstruction that would also fit this genre. As it was enjoyable to watch with good acting and directing, but the story drifted from real to imagined and took part in various spots in the timeline, so the audience wasn't sure what was really going on.

I haven't seen most of the movies mentioned so I think the most bizarre movie I've seen probably would be the cell.

I think Pi fits this category. And it's worth watching, too.

Mopower, you know better than to make posts like this. The next time it happens you can expect administrative action.

I don't know, I wouldn't really call it "bizarre." It was rather straightforward for the most part. It's just a movie where fiction is played out on-screen as reality...similar to parts of Sex and Lucia. I definitely wouldn't say that it comes anywhere near fitting into Korine, Bunuel, or Lynch's realm of the bizarre.

There are these two young women who escaped from prison and are basically on the run for the entire movie. One is black, and one is white. The black one was a lesbian and a bit of a psycho, and would randomly kill people in sometimes a ritualistic fashion. The white girl was sort've bitchy, sassy, and the dominant one in the relationship. The white girl would always get mad at the black girl every time she killed, and the black girl would cry and say "I'm sorry". But she always ended up killing again. The white girl could puke at will. While in jail, she demonstrated this by throwing up what looked like 3 gallons of chunky yellow soup on this other inmate who pissed her off. Later in the movie, they meet up with this witch (one of the black girl's childhood friends, I think?). It was a male witch who sort've dressed in drag. They always thought the withc was a woman... until the white girl pulled his penis out of his pants. Anyway... they end up cooking him in an oven, and while he's in the oven you can see his once normal looking nose is about three times longer. Hmm... what else. At the end of the movie, the black girl asks the white girl to shoot her in the head. And she does. Bang. Does anyone have any idea what movie this is? Sorry for the terrible description, but I was just sort've randomly blurting out things I vaguely remember. And I wish I knew their names so I wouldn't have to keep saying "white girl" "black girl".

Anyway, that was a very bizarre movie to me.
I think this is the movie that you are talking about: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0175536/ (Freeway II: Confessions of a Trickbaby). If so, don't feel bad about calling the white girl "White Girl" as that was her credited character!

Mulholland Drive. Because that's the only Lynch I've seen so far.

I tend to steer clear from films that are intentionally bizarre anyway.

That's the movie. Thanks Peep!

Now I'm in the mood to revisit it. I'm gonna add this very bizarre movie to my DVD wish list. This was a sequel?

I'll second Forbidden Zone. Basically, a live action Fleischer cartoon. And, oh yeah,
Herve Villachaize and Susan Tyrell play the king and queen of the 8th dimension.

Let me also add the following films for consideration:

Joe's Apartment
Un Chien Andalou
Highway 61

While it's not the most bizarre film I've ever seen, I'd have to say Donnie Darko was pretty bizarre (in a good way though).
