The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Cat In The Hat
A gripping series of odd case histories by a noted brain disorder researcher. What makes this movie so compelling is the method of it's telling. The stories, though quite serious, are recounted in amusing rhyming couplets. This is a risky technique, as it borders on the nonsensical at times.

The title story is of a man who constantly imagines that his spouse is a feline archetype which first destroys, and than rebuilds their happy home. Fraught with Freudian themes, the man worries constantly that his Mother will come home and catch him being bad. First rate.

All Reservoir Dogs Go To Heaven
In this tense black comedy, an orphaned mutt returns from heaven to earth in order to do a good deed, but is waylaid and ends up taking part in an unsuccessfull jewel heist. Top flight acting combined with a kick ass 70's soundtrack and a total lack of flea collars or neutering makes this one a winner!
