The movie I am most anxious to see right now is Songs from the Second Floor, an -- apparently -- absurdist, darkly comedic, surealist, (and possibly irrealist) exploration of human misery in a city slowly grinding to a halt. Has anyone seen this yet? Here are some reviews:

I'm pretty sure this played at UWM a while back and I really, really wanted to see it, but I never did. A friend of mine loved it. I also can't wait!!!

I looked around and discovered a Canadian disc available through Amazon.com. Pricey, but since it doesn't seem as though a US release will available soon, I might make the investment.
