It's always an exciting time when Czech legend Jan Svankmajer completes a new work. The surrealist visionary's last feature 'Lunacy' was one of my faves of 2005 and such an incredible sight to behold. It's a demented and glorious assault on the senses, pelting those before it with razor-sharp political fury and as the name holds, cinematic insanity.
Well fiends, the slime has come in the form of Surviving Life (Theory and Practice) which recently opened to eager arms and as expected, those who have seen it are quite pleased with themselves. You can find the trailer and stills here. Even looks oddly futuristic. We'll be keeping our eyes peeled and will bring this in for you just as soon as it becomes available. Until then, if we are lucky enough to get a Toronto screening before the DVD release, you know that a trip to the big city will most certainly be in order.
