A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence (2014)

Streaming on Amazon Prime | imdb | trailer

This is the what someone who hates art films probably thinks all art films are like. The thing is, it works really well. Weird, funny, dark, and beautiful. If you like this one, check out Songs from the Second Floor. It’s also by Roy Andersson, but even better. Along with You, the Living (which I have not yet seen) the movies mentioned here make up a trilogy. I don’t feel that watching them all in order is really essential, as the two I’ve seen are pretty abstract.

Not available on domestic Blu-ray.
