    If your into Surrealism, anything Luis Buńuel or Jan Švankmajer.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luis_Bu%C3%B1uel
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jan_Svankmajer

    Buńuel recommendations:

    Un Chien Andalou [1929, 16 min.] (co-written with Salvador Dali)
    L'Age d'Or [1930, 63 min.]
    Los Olvidados [1950]
    Veridiana [1961]
    The Exterminating Angel [1962]
    Simon of the Desert [1965]
    Belle de Jour [1967]
    The Milky Way [1969]
    The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie [1972]
    The Phantom of Liberty [1974]

    Švankmajer recommendations:

    all of his short films, but especially:
    Punch and Judy (or the Coffin Factory) [1966, 10 min.]
    The Flat [1968, 13 min.]
    Jabberwocky [1971, 13 min.]
    The Fall of the House of Usher [1980, 15 min.]
    Dimensions of Dialogue [1982, 11 min.]
    Down to the Cellar [1983, 15 min.]
    The Pit, the Pendulum, and Hope [1983, 14 min.]
    Meat Love [1988, 1 min.]
    Darkness/Light/Darkness [1989, 7 min.]
    The Death of Stalinism in Bohemia [1990, 9 min.]
    Food [1992, 16 min.]

    You can find all of his short films on the BFI Complete Shot Films DVD set (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Jan-Svankmaj...6443683&sr=8-1), but it's a UK DVD

    In the U.S., unless you got a non-regional player, you'll have to settle for these, which aren't nearly as good in quality and don't have all 26: http://www.amazon.com/Collected-Shor...6444516&sr=8-1
    http://www.amazon.com/Jan-Svankmajer...6444516&sr=8-4

    Anyway, feature films:
    Alice [1988] (based on Alice in Wonderland)
    Faust [1994]
    Conspirators of Pleasure [1996]
    Little Otik [2000]
    Lunacy [2005] (based on stories by Edgar Allan Poe and writings of the Marquis de Sade)

    sympathy for me was difficult to follow really at least for the first view cause I expected something different. Because of this I am skeptical about getting lady vengeance. I had it in my palms but I bought my cousin vinnie instead.

    Yeah, Sonatine is great. That and Hana Bi are probably my favourite Takeshi Kitano movies.
