Alice - very dark, partly animated take on Alice in Wonderland by Chech genius Jan Svankmajer

Rivers and Tides - documentary about artist Andy Goldsworthy. Haven't seen it but it's supposed to be awesome.

Possession - Andrzej Zulawski. Sam Neill and Isabelle Adjani. She cheats on him with a lump of slime, which turns out to be evil incarnate.

Show Me Love - Lukas Moodyson's first film.

La Jetee + Sans Soleil - Chris Marker double bill. He is a great man.

docu about north east percussionist Evelyn Glennie (by same director as Rivers and Tides!)

i'm sure there were more but i cant remember - will post more later
