My favorite cinematic mind-melter. While not the strangest film I’ve ever seen, The Visitor is certainly the most fascinating blend of slumming actors and convoluted storytelling. This particular version of the film includes a new intro that attempts to add clarity through loopy exposition. You know your film is a mess when the producers cut out background details just to speed things along. Without or without the silly sci-fi/quasi-religious set-up, director’s cut of The Visitor still delights with its madness and now, in this longer version there is even comic relief, in the form of two black tow-truck drivers. I am certain this scene was nixed for time as well as political correctness.
