Really Strange Movies Part I

Strange, but curiously good. In the City of Lost Children Krank is a scientist who cannot dream and suffers terribly as a consequence. So naturally he kidnaps children to steal their dreams. A little girl thief and a strongman (Ron Pearlman!) work together to stop Krank. Of course, it's not nearly that simple or direct. But the design work is amazing and the visuals are stunning, in the dark fashion of Brazil. As a bonus, it's in French! Take it home and don't worry too much about the plot, just enjoy this as a sort of moving painting.
