WEFOUNDCult Movies 3: 50 More of the Classics, the Sleepers, the Weird, and the Wonderful


“Cult movie” is a hard thing to pin down. For the purposes of this list — celebrating the tenth anniversary of  Donnie Darko  — we’ve put a premium on the intensity and selectiveness of a movie’s appeal. We’ve also limited each director to one film. See you at midnight!

The first R-rated comic-book movie stars Jane Fonda as a planet-hopping secret agent who has trouble keeping her clothes on. It was directed by Fonda’s then-husband, Roger Vadim, who must have seen it as an opportunity to spend nine million dollars’ of producer Dino De Laurentiis’ money just to tell every ticket-buying man in the world, “Eat your heart out!” —  P.N.

Any movie can have  fans , and just about any science fiction, fantasy, or superhero movie these days might inspire those fans to dress up as their favorite characters and attend a convention. But the cult of the Coen Brothers’ stoner detective bowling phantasmagoria is even more grassroots and bizarre, with the faithful not just mimicking characters from the film, but also props and appendages (like the rug that really ties the Dude’s room together and Bunny Lebowski’s severed toe). —  A.O.
