  1. Nathan Goldman's rating of the film ...and the Fifth Horseman Is Fear

    shades of Gilliam in the touches of surrealism that tinge Brynych's depiction under life under totalitarian bureaucracy, but tempered with the harsh knowledge that the film was depicting real-world brutality both under the Nazis, and, probably, Communist rule. plus, there's some fantastic production design (that warehouse!!) and photography in here, i'm always a sucker for a camera moving deftly through an apartment

  2. Samuel T.'s rating of the film ...and the Fifth Horseman Is Fear

    Even from this one-line sentence synopsis, you might be able to predict the outcome. A building of neighbors is tended towards madness in the face of utter repression, due to one man's heroic act of humanity. One of the most memorable endings of Czech New Wave films. Highly recommended for those knee deep.

  3. xrystyna's rating of the film ...and the Fifth Horseman Is Fear

    i enjoyed the cinematography a lot; however, overall - and especially in the first half, the film is overladen with all-too-apparent symbolism

  4. Jack Lineman's rating of the film ...and the Fifth Horseman Is Fear

    My god the shower scene is just perfect every single frame of it.
