One of the Oscar nominees for Best Foreign Film - and indubitably the strangest - is the character study "Bullhead," about a steroid-popping man-child in the bizarre demimonde of the Flemish bovine hormone mafia. The movie runs to 140 plot-heavy minutes, with a convoluted, kitchen-sink storyline that careens from gay police informants to perfume-shop samples to a literal ballbusting. It's frequently unpleasant to watch, but mostly it's boring and goes nowhere.
