I'm particularly partial to the wonderfully weird and disturbing Korean
film 301/302: http://imdb.com/title/tt0112257/

eating disorder and obsession, cannibalism, psycho-sexual madness...what's
not to like.

"In societies where modern conditions of production prevail, all of life
presents itself as an immense accumulation of spectacles."
--Guy Debord

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
