Wonderfully absurd French Cinema

Jerome and I have been looking for the most bizarre examples we can find on youtube of French cinema from the 1960s.  My first choice was Phillipe Garrel's Le Lit de la vierge, especially the scene where the "hero" is wandering in the desert with Nico's The Falconer playing.  But later I am stunned to come across someone's posting of Garrel's silent "masterpiece" Le Revelateur combined with music by Sunn O))) (the Grimmrobe demos).  What a great idea!

Perhaps when I have posted lots of fishing videos on youtube, I will move onto movies like this - superb!
