Weirdness is subjective: afterall, what’s downright absurd to one viewer may be “weird lite” for the next. But there are a few films that most moviegoers can agree are a little more far-out than usual, whether because of their bizarre plots, unsettling humor, surreal scenography or uncanny characters. But the truth is, the “weirdness” factor doesn’t always translate into cinematic merit. Indeed, although strange films are usually unforgettable, it can be tricky to assess whether the odd and outlandish is worth the full watch. To help you navigate the world of weird, we’ve rounded up of the top fifty films that are both highly unusual and definitely worth your time.

11. Frank (2014)

7.8

Country

Ireland, UK, United Kingdom

Director

Lenny Abrahamson

Actors

Abe Martell, Alex Knight, Bruce McIntosh, Carla Azar

Moods

Easy, Feel-Good, Funny

A really weird and also heartwarming movie about Frank, the leader and singer/songwriter of a crazy band. He really grows on you with his big head. If you like movies with that funky edge (like Scott Pilgrim) this is especially something for you! Either way and regardless of your preferences, you’ll find Frank to be a sweet, sincere, likable and clever comedy.

12. I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore (2017)

7.8

Country

United States of America

Director

Macon Blair

Actors

Asha Sawyer, Audrey Walker, Chris Doubek, Christine Woods

Moods

Character-driven, Dark, Funny

This is the first film directed by actor Macon Blair (so good in both Blue Ruin and Green Room), and while it is shaggy and tonally all over the place, there is a lot to recommend here. First off, I’m a huge fan of the (underrated) Melanie Lynskey, so I was primed to like this movie from the get-go. After Ruth’s (Lynskey) home is broken into, she seeks revenge against the perpetrators with help from her martial arts obsessed neighbor Tony (Elijah Wood, sporting an impressive rat-tail). What starts out as an empowering journey for Ruth & Tony quickly teeters into dangerous and increasingly violent territory. This movie is probably not for everyone, but if you’re a fan of 90s indie films and don’t mind some violence mixed in with your dark humor, then you will enjoy this small, well-acted film.
