Harold & Maude. I never thought I'd enjoy that film... until I actually watched it. It's a really beautiful story and funny as well.

On a side note I hardly recognized Bud Cort in The Life Aquatic, didn't realize he was the tax goon until I saw it online. He sure has changed alot since his youth, hah.

I'd like to echo Twin Peaks. It's like every genre of television in one show.

I've been watching a lot of avant-garde film on Ubuweb, and I'd have to give a nod to Kenneth Anger. His films are short, non-narrative, but amazingly influential. It's obvious he was a bit influence onto Lynch. He also is one of the first to marry occult, Nazi imagery, and homoeroticism into film. Making him kind of the archetype for the entire undercurrent of shocky art film.

Movies, there are a lot, but I'll mention Gummo and Mulholland Drive.

Yeah, The Room pretty much defines cult movie. That's my pick as well.

Undeclared was good as well.

It took them 20 years to release a sequel. If that doesn't hint at a slow build in popularity I don't know what does.

Yep, I have to second Kenneth Anger, although he's cult more among the audience that likes experimental and out there cinema. Well, the occult and nazi imagery kind of go hand in hand, as forms of transgression, as perceived in society. His films are...um, enchanting, as in Magick. They are visual rituals of sorts, which is not surprising since Kenneth Anger was a Thelemite. Suddenly the word 'cult' gains a literal meaning eh.

Ubuweb has an excellent collection of all kinds of 'absurdities'. That site will also become cult, if it already hasn't.
