His son Aun has mystical visions of his dead mother, a group of some kind of forest-fairies care for strange growing plants in the woods, a Brazilian mute mathematician is on a quest of his own and psychically finds magical forces in the forest, and his assistant, the stunningly beautiful Rosanne Mulholland, is trying to track down Aun.

He travels through war-torn but surreal landscapes and scenes, has an accident, and takes up painting. It's about a 'crew' of insane and violent girls the narrator explains what a crew meansthat go on a violence and revenge spree to teach misbehaving men a lesson.

There is a very strange killer in 'G is for Gravity' and that's all you can say about this puzzling one. Stay A mainstream, subtly surreal movie with some Lynchian aspirations. Another Trip to the Moon Indonesian strangeness that starts as a meditative and visually beautiful fable that takes place in a magical forest, then it starts injecting absurd elements from the modern world into the fairy tale, drawing parallels between myth and modern culture.

He plots to take away more from the people while feeding them TV cookies but a group may have found a way to topple his tyrannical rule with the help of a boy with no eyes. Important events are recreated and warped through imagination, and then analyzed metaphysically by the scientists who are fascinated by his insanity.

The movie is in grainy black and white with such a dreamlike, muddy quality that many images look like Rorschach tests where you stare and your mind tries to work it out using its own internal imagination.

There are emptied victims that find each other, a cycle of life portrayed via worms, pigs and orchids, shared and stolen memories, and a symbolic, transcendental breakthrough through orchids, isolation, and water. The ending kinda ties it all together, but not necessarily in a logical sense, and you have to think about it as a right-brain, dream-logic, emotional experience driven by human needs to extract the factual details from the rest.

Yudai Yamaguchi lends another cartoonishly mad Japanese short involving a man making impossible gruesome faces during a hara-kiri 'J is for Jidai-geki'. Borgman Warmerdam's movies are often just this side of surreal, featuring black comedy, strange coincidences and behaviour, or even a bit of fantasy and magic.

Alice in Wonderland Any adaptation of Alice is going to be labelled as surreal, but this French TV movie for kids from the 70s even adds its own layers of wackiness, crazy visuals, wordplay and psychedelia.

With Barrier, Skolimowski extends this approach into Felliniesque deliriousness and surrealism.

It takes the confusion of an 11 year old boy whose body and mind are starting to change, and ups it to eleven with deliriously surreal and fearlessly graphic visual humor. There's his new confused thoughts revolving around his hot mother who still treats him like a kid, except the boys at school all have the hots for her.

Arcana Very weird supernatural horror movie by the maker of Death Laid an Egg. All this is shown in a combination of animation styles, often just scanning static artistic or grotesque paintings, and the rest of the time either employing crude animations or flowing psychedelic imagery, everything portrayed with endlessly inventive visuals, psychedelic effects, grotesqueries, or symbolic images exaggerated to the point of surrealism.

Aftermath A beautifully shot sick movie. He 'listens' to rocks and creates machines according to the rocks' wishes. She runs over a badger, finds herself in a strange house occupied by a strange, bedridden, whimsical mother who talks to a rat and a radio, there's an oddly quiet son and daughter, a talking unicorn, many naked children, and lots of sheep, chickens and insects.

He also hangs out with a troupe of old people, all of which are either depressed, alone, or nostalgic and all of which seem quaint, irrelevant and obsolete next to the modern youngsters. For example, the gender war obviously represents scary behaviour of adults, the unicorn is her romantic fantasy which she chases at first and then nurses, the man is lust and sex, and the old mother is a complex and confusing adult version of herself.

Who will get to have a life in the wonderful insane asylum, and who will be equipped to leave and run the world. In addition, it's too bizarre to be a fairy-tale or story, and just a bit too intent and consistent to be a dream.

The children grow up nameless, each attempting to find meaning in their respective approaches of submissiveness, love or abusive power. Many other fantasies are just bizarre and often lose themselves in freewheeling imagery. A girl is pregnant for 18 months with a creature and the doctor decides it makes more sense to move the furniture in instead of the baby out, a man is made prime-minister due to his inch inner leg measurement, a man delivers BBC announcements through a TV frame with only the top third of his suit intact, and a man asks a women to take his wife's place in throwing dishes at him then calls her a slut, etc etc.

Inspired by the classic painting, Borgman sits on the wife's chest, causing her fears and nightmares. The movie fails because it has none of the talented nightmarish atmosphere of Lynch, and the acting is too mediocre and flat to convince anyone.
