It’s also worth noting that Don Hertzfeld’s IT’S A BEAUTIFUL DAY and the Serbiean underage sex arthouse movie CLIP are both also at the VIMEO service.

I saw both Asphalt Watches and The Animal Project and would recommend both.  I believe the latter will actually be getting a brief theatrical release in Canada before it appears on Vimeo.
