A big collection of films that might be considered as strange, mindfucking, surreal and weird. Sorted by year. Suggestions are…
The Number 23
First it takes hold of your mind...then it takes hold of your life.
Walter Sparrow is an animal control officer that becomes obsessed with a mysterious book that seems to be based on his own life. As soon as he opens the book, he notices strange parallels between what he reads and what he's experienced. But now he's worried that a fictional murder might materialize.
Utter bollocks...... hold on, utter bollocks, UB, U=21, B=2, 21+2=23... wierd!
I would watch Batman & Robin twice before I watched this again.
A senseless, pointless, unpersuasive and incoherent film that tries to be something that clearly is not. Thank you for another undeniable masterpiece, Joel Schumacher.
I stare at my computer screen, absentmindedly sucking on a watermelon Ring Pop. I brush my finger across the trackpad and the movie's runtime appears on screen. I look at how much I've already watched. 23:23.
Later, I brush the trackpad again. 1:23:23.
My jaw drops open.
It's almost over.

Yeah, that is it.
Joel (Satan) Schumacher has once again created a film that doesn't comes close to meeting its ambitions. A wannabe mystery-thriller, 'The Number 23' showcases another dramatic turn from Jim Carrey that is solid, but never manages to elevate the material to a higher level. The film's overly serious tone would be effective and intriguing if the story wasn't so laughable and farcical. Unintentionally funny, futile and tedious, 'The Number 23' is another dud from the devil himself.
Walter Sparrow (Jim Carrey) lives an average life with his wife (Virginia Madsen) and his son (Logan Lerman). After receiving a book as a gift from his wife, he starts to draw similarities between the novel's narrative and his own life. Becoming obsessed…
Jim Carrey let everyone down with this horrible confusing and very difficult to understand thriller the worst film that Jim Carrey has ever done.
Jim Carrey at his best! Absolutely hilarious!
Joel Schumacher poderia vencer com todos os méritos se existisse no mundo do cinema o prêmio de diretor mais irregular na ativa. Mesmo que conte com mais de duas dezenas de filmes no currículo e tenha lá momentos muito inspirados, o veterano cineasta tem duas falhas que cicatrizaram em si definitivamente: o medo em ousar e como conduz os roteiros que seleciona. “Número 23″ apresenta essas imperfeições. Aqui temos o melhor e o pior do diretor, que, mesclados, torna o resultado insatisfatório.
Always been a big fan of Jim Carrey but for some reason The Number 23 has always been a film of his that has seemed to pass me by as if my subconscious mind was telling me that I need not bother with this outing. Obviously my mind was right as this film is utter tripe, a contrived and mundane script that stretches the importance of a number in someones life to the point of drumming the same beats over and over again throughout the running time does not make for a pleasurable experience. The Number 23 can basically be summed up into 2 parts - the first part being a dorky man discovering a book that seems to know…
Interesting story and a bit creepy. Finding the same number everywhere started to feel a bit contrived. Some people think 11:11 is sinister but probably only since the advent of digital clocks.
One would think BATMAN & ROBIN would be the nadir of a director's career, what with it's existence only being an excuse to sell more toys. But, somehow Joel Schumacher still had this turkey up his sleeve.
I love Jim Carrey in both comedic and serious roles but even he couldn't save this disaster. It is without a doubt, the worst movie I have ever seen. However, I have a strange desire to revisit while drunk to at least get some laughs out of it.
Utter trash in every possible way.
One giant 'Meh'. It's not scary at all (not complaining about that), but the story falls flat as well. The main premise of the number doesn't make any sense as you're obviously gonna find whatever number you want if you keep looking for it everywhere. The main plot twist was a little unexpected (to me) but it didn't save the movie.
Probably the only part that I enjoyed a little were the Sin City-like flashbacks with the film noir commentary.
Carrey's weirdest, most terrible film.
¿De verdad tenéis tan claro que la peor película de Schumacher es "Batman & Robin"?
Suggest any, but please do not state the twist in the comments :)
It has to be a reveal, something…
