Svankmajer's Lunacy: Not for Lunatics

Posted by MP / July 20, 2006

photo.jpgI have recently started spending my days in a psychiatric hospital - as a patient. My girlfriend (an uneducated boob), knowing how much I've been enjoying my time amongst society's castaways, recommended that we go see Jan Svankmajer's newest and most deranged film to date-Lunacy.

Anyone who has seen any of Svankmejer's previous films, including Alice, Faust and Little Otik, know that they will be entering a dreamworld punctuated by stop-motion animated meat. Lunacy melds together Edgar Allen Poe's “Premature Burial” and "The System of Dr. Tarr and Prof. Fether" with the perverse cruelty of the Marquis de Sade. Lunacy is frequently offensive and viscerally repulsive. In other words, it's just frackin' awesome.

Interesting, your girlfriend may not be the "boob" you propound her to be. Clearly this was an effort to make the psych hospital appear to be a bastion of logic and reason by comparison!
