While we are on the subject of stop-action animation. I'll post one of my all time favorites. The Brothers Quay create beautifully dystopian worlds that are one part Franz Kafka, one part Joseph Cornell, and one part Hans Bellmer...
Street of Crocodiles (1986) by Timothy & Stephen Quay.
And no, these are not the people who animated the Tool videos. That person badly ripped off the Brothers Quay.
