    Too bad there isn't a streaming service that serves all these sorts of movies. Every service I have tried has been a big letdown so far.

    +1 on Primer -- super smart sci-fi. I'd also strongly recommend Shane Carruth's follow up Upstream Color.

    Some other unconventional sci-fi movies are Pi, Darren Aronovsky's first movie, and Under the Skin.

    Todd Solondz has a great sense of humor, albeit a dark one. His stuff makes me smile.

    I think I haven't seen any of Guy Maddin's stuff. Looks interesting though.

    Enjoyed the movie Francis Ha.

    Pulp Fiction is available on NetFlix and I watched it for the first time since '95 or so. A blast from the past and still interesting.

    Being John Malkovich was pretty unconventional.

    Just scanned thru this thread and most of my favorite quirky movies have already been suggested. So add my vote for previously mentioned:
    Blue Velvet
    Dark City
    Brazil
    I don't remember if anyone said Mullholand Drive, it's great

    An older movie I really like is K-Pax

    A recent movie I just watched and loved is Happytime Murders

    Mulholland Drive and Happytime Murders are both great.
