I personally recomend "Felidae". It's an animated German movie from 1994 where a cat named Francis tries to solve the murders of several cats in his neighborhood. It has graphic violence and a sex scene, and it has a pretty dark tone, so if that's not your cup of tea, I wouldn't watch it. In my opinion, it's very well animated, and I love the story. It turns out to be much more complicated than you think it is at the begining, and you end up feeling sympathetic for even the worst of characters. Some people take issue with the abundance of violence and sex in this movie, but, unlike some movies, it's not for shock factor: it's used to discuss an issue that just happens to be very mature. Overall, I just love the film. Do you guys have any small/indie films you feel this way about? If so, please share it in this thread!
