I know you must have already considered this movie, but how — oh how?! — could you omit Exorcist 2: The Heretic ?? Clearly much more weird than most movies you do include, also a big “mainstream” movie by a major director (as weird as Zardoz and not boring like other weird Boorman movies like Leo the Last and Where the Heart Is, which you also don’t include ) and mostly reviled though it has its fans, including the director of Taxi Driver. It should’ve been on this list from the get-go. Like leaving Citizen Kane off a list of “Greatest Newspaper Films”.
Even the honorable mentions doesn’t mention it (though it HAS to make the list.) I don’t understand. It’s very famous for a weird movie bomb. This is too weird.
And you are missing a plethora of Japanese films made in the 60s , 70s and 80s, some by major filmmakers like Ichikawa, Imamura, even Kurosawa — titles escape me…

OK, this was clearly intended for our sister site, 366 Weird Movies. People are always posting on that site asking about movies they can’t remember (which is why we created I Remember This Movie in the first place), but this is the first time it’s happened in reverse. In case Jay Jay comes back, here’s our review of Exorcist II: The Heretic.
