A man who fears he’s edging into madness gets a fresh perspective on what insanity really means in this frantic, visually inventive black comedy from Czech auteur Jan Svankmajer.

Our take

This week’s double bill goes to one of the most notorious writers in literary history: the Marquis de Sade, who turned 276 last month and remains just as dangerous. The libertine philosopher’s legacy forms the backbone of this wild madhouse from the famed Czech surrealist Jan Švankmajer.
