SAVAGE RELIGIONS (Le Dernier Cri collective - French/acid/animation/underground)
Thirty artists from eleven countries have created a visual trip to hell that was inspired by the devotion pictures of the La Major cathedral in Marseille. This absurd mix of stiles is close to the Art Brut. The ugly, blasphemous and obscene work stresses out the often anarchic side of the animation film and is easily incorporated into the complete works of the artists collective Le Dernier Cri, which was founded in 1993 in Marseille.
I'm dying to see some of the movies posted in this thread, but can't right now due to bandwidth limitations, damn shitty broadband deals!
Anyway, been wanting to post this one for some time now, it's not exactly sci-fi, but it's absolutely one of the best films I've ever seen.
It's about a very shy, introverted man who's mother has died leaving him the house, and leaving him to his own devices. People just think he's weird, but this tram enthusiast has a great mind. He's a gifted inventor with all sorts of weird inventions in his house, but his greatest inventions don't come to mind until he takes in a lodger (or two) in order to pay the bills
I've seen Vidoedrome, but I'll definitely be checking-out Texhnolyze and the others you posted.
I notice your avatar is from Watership Down, and am curious, have you seen that other animation they did in the same style called "The Plague Dogs"?
If you like Watership Down I'd say there's a very strong chance you'll like The Plague Dogs as well.
Personally I think I prefer The Plague Dogs (although it's a close one). The atmosphere in it really works, feels very dark, like they really gave it the feel they intended to. It's about two dogs who escape from being kept in an experimentation facility deep in the rolling countryside of England. As well as the abuse they are left with due to the experiments, they have to deal with what life throws at them when living wild. It's basically a sad and depressing story that really works because of the art style and atmosphere it has. You really feel for the characters even though it's an animation - it even has the power to piss you off due to what goes on.
Can't find an upload of it, but here's the opening scene to give you an idea (obviously the DVD isn't shaky like that and the audio is far better).
