    Amazom Prime video seems to have more odd stuff than others here. Esp. Old B movies

    I used to be into off-beat horror movies and the like. Three movies that made me go "Wha...?"

    Society
    Dr. Caligari
    Man Bites Dog
    I can't watch these kind of things anymore, no stomach for it. But they are unconventional, and quite so.

    Here's one that won't raise your neck-hairs, but is still off the beaten trail:

    Rustler's Rhapsody

    Loved Run Lola Run.

    Another I liked was Memento. About as unconventional as you can get.

    Plus one for Memento: it starts at the end and works backwards one day at a time to the beginning!

    "12 Years a Slave" is a very interesting movie and Brad Pitt plays a very good small part that ultimately is hugely important to the main character. many good performances in this film.

    Oh, you want unconventional?

    Johnny Got His Gun(1971).

    Magnolia...multiple seemingly unconnected plot lines until the end

    Love and a .45... surprisingly I saw this available on either Netflix or Amazon Prime

    It's quite a conventional movie, however.

    I agree. And a young Christian Slater channels Jack Nicholson to perfection.

    I think A Clockwork Orange was pretty unconventional when it came out in 1971. Still looks fresh and still relevant.

    Not sure if this counts but "Apocalypto" is one of my all time faves. All subtitles, as the film's only spoken language is Yucatec Maya, but a great entertaining flick.
