  1. Adam Whybray's rating of the film Insect

    2.9 stars. "Everything is MALIGNANTLY USELESS except as some species of potato masher" (Thomas Ligotti). Švankmajer's most essayistic film creeps up upon you like a lurgee. 'Insect' is a demystifying anti-fable like 'Faust', of which Victoria Nelson wrote that it goes as far as is possible in the Aristotelian tradition... 'Insect' goes further. As deeply pessimistic as 'Lunacy' but a mite more palatable. Itchy itchy.
