The Meatman Cometh ("Delicatessen")

One of the great things about Netflix is my ability to see films that I normally wouldn't go into a store and rent. Though this French Film (from the director of Amelie) is over 15 years old, I had never heard of it. Check this vid for the trailer to DELICATESSEN:

What a fun, delightful, atmospheric dark comedy. If you like Terry Gilliam movies such as Brazil, this is right up that same alley. The characters are outrageous, the sequences are fun and the comedy is creepy and fantastic. Though the entire movie is not this choreographed and goofy, here's one clip to give you a taste (pun intended):

We love Netflix. Those movies sound interesting for sure. We had just recently watched The Host. It was surprisingly good. I suggest you watch Curse of The Golden Flower. Now that movie was excellent!
