If you're tired of the predictable plots of your favorite rom-coms, maybe you should check out a few unconventional romantic movies. In most romantic comedies, the obstacles men and women face are usually just misunderstandings and personalities that seem incompatible at first. However, couples in unconventional romantic movies have to deal with all sorts of crazy problems, from cravings for brains to cravings for spankings. Here's a look at a few of these twisted movies about love:
When it comes to unconventional romantic movies, they don't get more creative than this one. In Terry Gilliam's dystopian movie about the horrors of bureaucracy, our hero sets out to help the girl of his dreams. And we're talking about a literal dream girl here—he has recurring dreams about a beautiful damsel in distress. He's shocked when he meets this mysterious girl in the real world after setting out to correct an administrative error, and he sets out on a quest to find out who she is. If you're a fan of steampunk and social satire, then you'll definitely enjoy Gilliam's futuristic world. However, it's a violent place where paperwork is more important than people, and the movie explores dark themes like torture, terrorism, and terrifying plastic surgery.
