Boy, do I love this series. The year's most unexpected treat – cult classics screened at Historic Sanford's strangest bar, Little Fish Huge Pond – continues this month with a slightly more whimsical slate than the last couple of month's lineups.

Only one – Peter Greenaway's truly WTF (the "What the Fuck" kind, not the "Winning the Future" kind) hubbycidal fairy tale Drowning by Numbers – truly merits the series' name, but that doesn't mean the others aren't fully worthy, if not entirely obscure. Go. Soon. It's free.
