The Red Car
dir. John Waters
dir. Joel Coen
This one's from Jay Dub, who adds:
Both films feature a protagonist with absolutely no control over their situation, both The Dude and Francine barely have the mental faculties to grasp what's going on around them, and both spend most of their film in a drug-addled daze. TBL even features a number of characters that would be right at home in almost any Waters film: The Nihilists, Jesus Quintana, and David Thewlis, who spends his one scene essentially playing a caricature of John Waters.
