  4. José Neves's rating of the film A Deadly Invention

    Méliès, of course!, but also an entire Cinema that inherited the soul of pure cinematic inventiveness, from "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" by Richard Fleischer to "Le Soulier de Satin" by Manoel de Oliveira. Although the rhythm of the narrative is somehow a bit loose, what matters is the astonishment at the formal achievement that puts in the same level of visibility the human and trickery, that is, body and spirit.

  5. Naty Muffins's rating of the film A Deadly Invention

  6. Zeppo's rating of the film A Deadly Invention

  7. Ellie Groom's rating of the film A Deadly Invention

    Not quite as off the wall as Baron Prasil, but still satisfyingly fantastical. God I love flying machines.

  8. mauries's rating of the film A Deadly Invention

    the constructions and machines are amazing!

  9. Scumbalina's rating of the film A Deadly Invention

    An elaborately hand made steampunk masterpiece. Zeman was definitely channeling Georges Melies when he made this.

  10. Steve Macfarlane's rating of the film A Deadly Invention

    Zeman's masterpiece: gorgeous, elegant, unfailingly droll and even gripping! This towers above the works of Svankmajer Gilliam, Burton, Maddin, the Brothers Quay and any number of the unique director's would-be pupils, despite its relative obscurity.
