I'm looking for an American movie (probably '90s-early '00s) about a man, who travelling through a desert heading toward (?) a UFO landing place. Movie begins in the city, during the night.

One scene I remember, is when the protagonist spoke with a man in a motel, who claimed to drill a hole in his forehead in order to open his "third eye".

Movie was bit surreal, on the edge of fantasy. It's definitely not "Interstate 60" nor "Wristcutters".

Thanks for help and sorry for bad english!

You're looking for a strange independent film called Lift from 1997.

Young pizza delivery man Larry wanders through the desert waiting for the aliens to land - he believes in everything he hears and does anything anyone tells him.

One of the people he meets along the way is some weird evangelist who invites him to his motel room, rambles on about trepanation and then proceeds to drill a hole in his own head to open his "third eye". The movie is currently available on Youtube.

Here's the poster (from rottentomatoes):
