4.5 stars. The more times I return to this one the more I admire and enjoy it. It feels like there is absolutely no obfuscation here and Švankmajer is offering the other members of the Czech Surrealist Group a nakedly personal work [which we are also privileged to witness]. 'Jabberwocky' (for me, his masterpiece) is the more rigorous psychosexual examination, but this is the most haunting. Grime; grimy; grimiest.
