It has been called a "sleazeball masterpiece" .  Based on a true story and starring Tony Lo Bianco, 1970's "The Honeymoon Killers" is as riveting as it is repulsive. 

 

You have been warned.

 

Watch it for free on YouTube.


 

 

I watched that movie and it is beyond quirky.  It is a disturbing movie.

I'm not sure quirky is the word to describe but the first I thought of was Edward Scissorhands.

"Priscilla, Queen of the Desert"

With Terence Stamp, Guy Pierce, and Hugo Weaving

A colorful, funny, heartfelt, and wild ride! Love this movie!!

 

ETA - ABBA music!


@sugar plum - I love that film!  (I also liked the remake with Patrick Swayze:  "To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar".)

 

Another one I love is "Strictly Ballroom" - an Australian film.  Great movie.

The King of Comedy.  
 

Martin Scorsese directs Robert DeNiro, Jerry Lewis, Sandra Bernhardt.       As quirky as the mix of actors!

 

Where's Poppa?     George's Segal, Ruth Gordon 

 

Segal has eccentric ( we now say early dementia) mother who inters with  his impressing new girlfriend.
