  1. Richmond Hill's rating of the film The Cabinet of Jań Švankmajer

    Although it leads to nowhere in particular this is a charmingly esoteric doffing of the hat to an earlier master of the medium. The relative brevity of the piece helps ensure the inventiveness remains the right side of empty. It’s hard to believe now, but animation like this was once routinely broadcast on peak-time mass audience television in Great Britain.

  3. Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Cabinet of Jań Švankmajer

    It's about as esoteric as it wants to be. In keeping with tradition it's fine visuals that don't really say anything.

  4. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film The Cabinet of Jań Švankmajer

    3-4. A positive core point varnished with some intriguing affectations about the interplay between viewer and object. And of course, those visuals are astonishing.

  5. Thijmen's rating of the film The Cabinet of Jań Švankmajer

    Once again the aesthetics of this movie is amazing. The Quay brothers created a wonderful world and paid a nice homage to svankmajer. However I didn't really feel able to 'get it' and somehow it bothered me more then with some of there other work. Not sure why. Maybe I need to see it a couple of times.

  6. Wasunan T's rating of the film The Cabinet of Jań Švankmajer

    The music and the visuals altogether is everything!

  7. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film The Cabinet of Jań Švankmajer

    ★★★★ the metaphysics of movie homage.
