X-Files?
Cowboy Bebop?
Fireflyz? (I only seen one ep, didn't really like the execution, whatever)
Lost in Translation?
Midnight Express?
Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon?
The Flowers Of War? (2011, starring Bale)
24 Hour Party People?
John Cusack's Shanghai?
"Bored to Death"?
Always Sunny?
Um... Yeah, or something else? Maybe a bit of this and a bit of that?

I think...yeah, none of the above. I believe "Alice in Wonderland" fits the bill.  agagagagag

Something by David Lynch. Or Tim Burton maybe.

First year here I got all of the David Lynch out of my system

I like to think it's Woody Allen but it's probably more Will Ferrel :(

good question...not on your list, but just springing to mind without thinking about it too much: Faulty Towers on the work front and Lost In Space for the rest.

There's a bit of Jim Jarmusch (sp?) thrown in there as well, meaningless conversations and a sense of stasis
