Here's a short list of films I haven't shown yet. 

Destricted (unreleased in the US) A compilation of 7 shorts by 7 directors.  Each film explores eroticism and sexuality in an art context.  Standouts include Maria Abramovic's Balkan Erotic Epic, Matthew Barney's Hoist and Gaspar Noe's We F*ck Alone.

Quiet Sandwiches (not commercially available) A collection of short films by a young filmmaker from Wisconsin named Wesley Tank.  Manic editing, stream of consciousness, heavy existential dialogue abound.

Possession (US uncut release out of print) Andrzej Zulawski's masterpiece.  Possibly my favorite film of all time.

Tetsuo: The Iron Man Virtuoso stop motion, technofetish acid trip by actor/director Shinya Tsukamoto

Brand Upon the Brain  Film by Canadian Surrealist Guy Maddin.  I haven't seen this yet.  It may have been shot in Super 8.

Gozu, Ichi the Killer, Visitor Q, The Happiness of the Katakuris Films by maverick Japanese filmmaker Takashi Miike.  Gozu is a bizarre Lynchian horror, Ichi is an unbelievably violent manga, Visitor Q is one of the most f'd up films ever made, and Happiness is a family soap opera zombie musical with live action and stop motion animation. Some of the best stuff ever.

Fando y Lis, El Topo, The Holy Mountain Three films by Surrealist filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky. 

Stalker Andrei Tarkovsky
