#10: Eraserhead (1977)
Probably the most well known of all the weirdest directors, David Lynch set the bar high for himself when he made this movie. It took 5 years to produce and destroyed his marriage in the process. At the end of the day, it's actually about the strength of a father's love, but the trick to understand that involves actually watching the movie! Between the horrors of his inudstrial surroundings, his nightmarish relationship, and the screams of his mutant and eraser-shaped-head mutant-child, the saga of Henry Spencer is not likely to make anything but the strongest impression on its viewers.
