Three Crowns of the Sailor (Les trois couronnes du matelot)

Ruiz is an underseen master of surrealism and this—a ghostly sea-voyage to nowhere, speaking to personal histories and unconscious romance in a string of indecipherable code—is a masterpiece. Episodic, comic, and thrilling, the film is expressed through stunning visuals, landscapes and oceans, and optical effects culminating in a truly dreamlike experience (leave David Lynch at the door).
