Diabeł

Andrzej Żuławski Poland, 1972

Freude's rating of the film The Devil

This is madness all over. Madness in the epileptic emotions of the actors, madness in the bleak, expressionist landscape – more than merely surrounding, madness in the feverish camera movements and the story’s restless ramble into fatalism giving you just as little room to breathe as the protagonists themselves have. I like being sucked into mad movies.
