It's hard to pick the weirdest sequence from The Lathe of Heaven, the trippy 1979 TV movie of the Ursula LeGuin novel. This one comes pretty close, starting with a bizarre vision of alien invaders and then zipping to a well-intentioned but horrendous attempt to end racism forever. George Orr's dreams literally come true, and his psychiatrist tries to use them to fix the world. Along the way, Orr dreams up an alien invasion. But then he turns the aliens friendly, and they start working in antique stores, as you'll see in our second clip after the jump. Lathe is the sort of surrealistic, idea-driven story we wish we saw more often.
