Background: reader Funkadelic has gone above and beyond the call of duty in making suggestions/recommendations for inclusion on the site, both in the feature and short film categories. Not that I want to encourage readers to compete to outdo him and try to get their own dedicated posts, but I thought I could clean up the suggestion thread a bit by moving his numerous recommendations to their own post. Please enjoy; Funky’s tastes are in line with ours, his enthusiasm is infectious, and everything here comes pre-recommended.
Links go to trailers or short clips, or in the case of shorts to the complete films.

Santa Sangre (already in your queue)
Jan Svankmayer’s Faust
(Really any svankmayer movie will do)
Why no Fantastic Planet?
How about a couple weird “bad” movies?
Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter
The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T
Fair Warning, though it’s weird, J.C. Vampire Hunter really is BAD.
A more deserving entry in your queue is Dark City
Anyone suggested In The Mouth Of Madness yet?
Weird story arc more than surreal visuals. Always love leaving a movie that makes you question reality.
A couple older Japanese movies that BOTH deserve consideration:
Sho o suteyo machi e deyou (Throw Away Your Books,Go Out Into The Streets)
An animated short for you
One more for ya’:
Did you have this one?
I Met the Walrus
More Shorts for your consideration (if you don’t already have them):
Another short:Imagenes mentales de un hombre perdiendo la razon
