    I'm surprised the other two in the trilogy weren't mentioned alongside Brazil: Timebandits & Baron Munchausen

    Delicatessen as mentioned and anything else by Jean-Pierre Jeunet is definitely weird... even Amelie & especially City of Lost Children

    Edward Scissorhands was mentioned, but obviously anything by Tim Burton is definitely weird too! Kinda old now, but I still love Beetlejuice! And Nightmare before Christmas is a classic, too much singing but still way cool.

    Fantastic Planet is an artsy & weird movie, Yellow Submarine is kinda weird too I would say. On the subject of artsy & weird animation, works by Yuri Norstein are must-see. Tale of Tales is certainly "huh?"

    For TV series The Prisoner is pretty weird too. Especially that big white blob!!

    I believe someone already mentioned "Zardoz" which is pretty trippy and will bring back some Hippy Commune memories. Along the same dystopian lines, you may also want to watch "Logan's Run" and "Soylent Green".

    For horror, you may want to watch the classic "Rosemary's Baby" or for creepy revenge, "The Abominable Dr. Phibes".

    Quirky comedy: Annie Hall, Sleeper or Bananas.

    If you liked Spinal Tap check out Mighty Wind, it's the Tap guys doing a 60's folk music mockumentary as The Folksmen. I just got my copy on DVD today (don't have to watch the partly taped over copy I have on VHS with commercial interruptions) been digging the geeky tunes and all the extra scenes. I was raised by hippies so I have a soft spot for this music, other people my age seem to find it intolerable! lol!
    And if you liked "Mighty Wind" and "Spinal Tap" then you should check out Fear of a Black Hat which is to hip hop what the former two are to folk music and metal.

    I haven't seen it since it came out, but Toys, directed by Barry Levinson and starring Robin Williams, is one I'd add to the list. My wife and I loved it and were baffled by the generally bad reviews it got. It was awfully weird for a movie with so much Hollywood horsepower behind it.

    Going even further back in my memory, I remember a 1960s English movie called Work is a Four Letter Word (I saw it on TV maybe 30 years ago) which is about a guy growing psychedelic mushrooms in an uptight, corporate world. Methinks everyone involved imbibed too heavily during production & editing and it certainly qualifies as weird. In a good way.

    Since other Terry Gilliam movies have already been mentioned, what about Fisher King, also starring Robin Williams? That's another terrific one.

    edit: I just thought of another - Like Water for Chocolate - a Mexican movie with English subtitles and plenty of magical realism.
