The legendary and often Avant-garde National Film Board of Canada has slowly been putting its archive online. There are many of the old favorites there, many I have seen over the years and can still name. Then there are others I viewed once in the odd hours of the morning never to be seen again without so much as even an inkling of a title for me to help find it later in life. Not all of them are up there yet, but you can subscribe to an RSS feed and check in on the new goods each week.

The moral is: Beware of neighbors. Anything can set them off in a homicidal rage.

Delightful little gem from an era of experimentation.

great little analogy for wars and border disputes over resources or beliefs. pleasantly shocked at how cartoony the violence against the babies was....!

my dad brought this home from the library on reel. it must have been late 70's/early 80's...it's been so long now i don't remember, but suffice it to say, i was just a teeny-weeny young lad, a tot if you will. i don't remember much from that long ago but i do remember this film, vividly. it scared me and made me cry. i may have even peed my pants. looking back, i realize now just how much of a pussy i must've been!

oh yeah, randy quaid starred in a film...i think it was called "the neighbor" for HBO(?) it's sort of an expanded remake of this film. really good. i've always wondered if it would come out on dvd, don't know if it ever did. did anybody see this besides me? great little film! late 80's/early 90's?

NFB films underlined my childhood insomnia. I spent many nights shaking beneath their weight, or maybe everything else was shaking and I was perfectly still, etc.
