Jean Cocteau is another good french director, before the new wave. Orpheus, Beauty and The Beast, and Blood of a Poet are good early surreal french films. I didn't list Orpheus and Beauty and The Beast because they are common stories though.
Thanks for the recommendations. I'm going to catch up on these french films, the bad part is there are only few movies that are hardcoded with English text.

If you haven't seen the popular film noirs/Neo noirs check them out (Taxi Driver, Chinatown, Sunset Blvd, Double Indemnity, Notorious, Strangers on A Train, Pulp Fiction, Touch of Evil, The Third Man, M, Laura, Maltese Falcon, The Big Sleep, Reservoir Dogs, LA Confidential etc.)

FILM NOIR




[code]When a man in mid-life crisis befriends a young woman, her venal fiancé persuades her to con him out of some of the fortune she thinks he has. [/code]
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0038057/


[code]When a conservative middle-aged professor engages in a minor dalliance with a femme fatale, he is plunged into a nightmarish quicksand of blackmail and murder.[/code]
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0037469/
Those two have the same director (Lang) and star the same people, even similar stories.

Old school Bonnie & Clyde:


[code]Since he was a child, Bart Tare has always loved guns.[/code]
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0042530/


[code]A married woman and a drifter fall in love, then plot to murder her husband[/code]
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0038854/


[code]Private eye Philip Marlowe hired by Moose Malloy, a petty crook just out of prison after a seven year stretch, to look for his former girlfriend, Velma, who has not been seen for the last six years.[/code]
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0037101/
Very stylish and moody:


[code]Hit men k!ll an unresisting victim, and investigator Reardon uncovers his past involvement with beautiful, deadly Kitty Collins.[/code]
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0038669/


[code]A doomed female hitchhiker pulls Mike Hammer into a deadly whirlpool of intrigue, revolving around a mysterious "great whatsit."[/code]
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0048261
Hitchcock's only surreal movie:


[code]A female psychiatrist protects the identity of an amnesia patient accused of murder while attempting to recover his memory.[/code]
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0038109


[code]True story of an innocent man mistaken for a criminal.[/code]
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0051207/


[code]A major heist goes off as planned, until bad luck and double crosses cause everything to unravel.[/code]
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0042208/
Must see if you like 'gutter' talk tough guy dialogue:


[code]Tough cop Dave Bannion takes on a politically powerful crime syndicate.[/code]



[code]A pickpocket unwittingly lifts a message destined for enemy agents and becomes a target for a Communist spy ring.[/code]
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0045555/


[code]Bogart plays a man convicted of murdering his wife who escapes from prison in order to prove his innocence[/code]
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0039302

They usually come with an srt file (subtitle file), if not I can find links for an srt. You can watch it easily on the computer, or use a program to burn it to a dvd with subs (forget the name). If you use PS3 you can get 'AVIADDXSUBS' and it adds the subs into a .divx file which has soft subs (just click subtitles in options) that you can play.

KG: Anything is possible.

Looks like you have to hard code them, that sucks, if your computer is fast enough do that. Otherwise get some blank DVDs or watch on the computer.

I did when you asked for laid back movies, it is more laid back than any Godard film imo. I will post the Melville collection though since its worthy.

Costello is that dude, let me know what you think of the end and the movie as a whole, Alain Delon is the actor he is good, check him out in Le Cercle Rouge, L'eclise, and Purple Noon all posted here.

Sometimes it f**ks up, I forgot what to do. Mess with the settings or go to user reviews and try from there. I just peeped Dog Star Man the full 70 mins, movie was pretty good, the beginning and last 20 mins were nice, I need to see it again without distractions though, pure surrealism and experimental just what I am looking for. Have you seen any of the short films by Kenneth Anger? They sound similar but I haven't seen any.

Also check out the short films of Maya Deren, specifically Meshes of The Afternoon and let me know what you think.
