    Not quite motion-picture cinematic films/movies but who here knows "Tim and Eric"?

    So good, so good!

    In Italy there's an extremely creative and strange thriller of Giulio Questi (with music of Bruno Maderna) made in 1968 called La morte ha fatto l'uovo (I don't know if there's a english title) that could be mentioned too.

    And don't forget Derek Jarmans'Blue.
    I've watched a couple of cartoon by Swankmeyer, they are interesting indeed. Good suggestion.
    Jarman's Blue is like some movies that show you a landscape , rather boring landscape from a moving train and nothing changes.

    Julio Questi's movie is quite nice as well.

    The Ruling Class. Peter O'Toole as a mad aristo who thinks he's a) Jesus and b) Jack the Ripper. The House of Lords as a mausoleum of cobwebbed skeletons. Sudden lurches into song and dance. "Dem bones, dem bones, dem dry bones." (Which also pops up in The Prisoner.)

    I can think of a lot of weird television, though:

    The Prisoner - "Fall Out" (made by Patrick McGoohan on inspiration and a nervous breakdown; pure '60s, with revolution and the Beatles)
    The Strange World of Gurney Slade
    Jonathan Miller's Alice in Wonderland (Ah, the '60s! When surrealism could be broadcast to a mainstream audience)
    Lots of Out of the Unknown

    Film and television has declined since the '60s, hasn't it? (Says he, aged barely 34.)

    there was a old movie, something made in the fifties if I remember correctly, that all made like that. I don't remember what the title was.
    What time is the next swan?

    I have it in my movie collection. I like it aesthetically but it's a rather slow and monotonous movie. It doesn't quite meet the pronouns I described but it's ok I guess, not great but not shocking either.

    I understand that it's a different kind of film than what one usually expects, with its premise of an advanced race of space entities observing mankind's various states of evolution and what not. But for pete's sake, it starts with gorillas smashing skeletons and ends with a giant black rectangle (I know I know, "monolith") standing over Dave Bowman's deathbed. I'm not saying I didn't enjoy the film, because it was very interesting. I just think it's one of the darn strangest things I've ever seen.
    Here's a quote from an interview with Stanley Kubrick (the director) about 2001:

    "If you understand the film, we failed."

    They failed then because, while the film is ambiguous in some areas, it is quite a straight-forward movie really. The film is beautiful and quite unconventional but really, we've got a sequel and a directly related book series.

    The Ruling Class is a masterpiece and the best acting O'Toole ever did. Excellent viewing if a tad overlong.
