    Odd? Or surprising?

    Jacob's Ladder is pretty much my WTF movie.

    Cheers,

    I felt that way about "The Happening" with Mark Wahlberg and "The Crossing Guard" with Jack Nicholson.

    I figured that one started this thread.

    The other one is Dirty Mary Crazy Larry.

    That movie reminded me of another Tim Robbins movie with an equally WTF ending:

    Erik The Viking

    WARNING *** tough ending to watch.

    This ending did not sit well with the movie going audience (why shoot the running man in the back?) ... but makes perfect sense from a "character" perspective. You have to pay close attention to the dialog (character building) throughout the movie.

    Made no sense to me when I was a kid ... but like fine wine ... got better with age ... takes life experience that comes with time to understand the characters . One of my favorite thinking mans westerns.

    No such list is complete without Harold and Maude ...

    PS ... I figure a "spoiler alert" would be a bit redundant here, considering the thread's title ... but hey, if you've never seen the movie ... SPOILER ALERT! <G>

    I'd have to agree with you there...watched it twice and I'm still not sure.

    +1 for Holy Grail. They ran out of money according to the directors cut. That would have been my pick...

    I recently watched Children of Men, it somewhat ends odd. Maybe I need to watch it again at some point.

    I can't believe no one has mentioned a couple Kubrick classics: 2001: A Space Odyssey and The Shining.
