Even Dwarfs Started Small.

German New Wave director Werner Herzog [wiki] directed this surreal 1970 film called Even Dwarfs Started Small [wiki]. In the movie, a group of dwarfs in an institution on a remote island rebel against the guards and directors (dwarfs as well) in a nonsensical way. How? You'll see:

dwarves behaving badly.

with an evil chuckle.

and what's with the one-legged chicken that uses its wing as a crutch? peck peck peck. a metaphor for drarfs getting picked on?

in any case, overall... creepy.
