Only seen Lily Chou-Chou - found it extremely unsettling - the mood of it stuck with me for days after. I think that means it's really good.

1. All About Lily Chou-Chou (Totally haunting film. I want to say it's amazing, but I haven't quite worked up to re-watching it to be sure.)
2. Picnic (Some interesting ideas and tones that didn't amount to much for me.)
3. Fireworks (Made-for-TV feel that is kinda a mess for as simple as the story is.)

I definitely want to see more.

Really want to see Swallowtail

So weird. Picnic is also really bizarre.
