    Going back to an earlier time two fabulous offbeat ethereal British films from the 1940's, coincidentally both starring Eric Portman.

    A good off-beat film is Donnie Darko.

    Fantastic Mr Fox is another good Wes Anderson flick

    Donnie Darko is incredible

    Is this genre considered to be Cyberpunk? If so, have you read Snowcrash by Neal Stephenson?

    I wouldn't really call it cyberpunk per se, it doesn't feel like that to me. I'm familiar with Snowcrash, but have not read it.Was it made into a film?

    AFAIK it's never been a film, but his books are brilliant and quite hilarious in parts. I will definitely check out Akira, it's free on tubi right now.

    Cool. It does have elements of cyber, the dystopian future, and so forth. Not so much hacking and AI. I'd say Ghost In The Shell is more of that. Also a great film, btw.

    I second Tideland. What an astounding film! I also love Steve Zissou. Watched it again a couple weeks ago.

    Let me see.... little known quirky films...

    Son of Rambow - a sheltered religious child who has never watched TV sees Rambo and it BLOWS HIS MIND
    Scotland PA - Macbeth set in a 1970s hamburger joint... MacBeth's. Great Christopher Walken role, and lots of 70s rock.

    Hmm... what else. Not a movie, but a short TV series - the BBC America version of Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency is one of my favorite things ever.

    I remember starting to watch Fantastic Mr. Fox not knowing ahead do time it was his and 5 minutes in I ask myself “Self, is this Wes Anderson?” They are that distinctive.
