Street of Crocodiles, 1986. Directed by the Brothers Quay. Running time: 21 mins.

The Quays’ masterpiece is adapted from a short story by Polish writer Bruno Schulz and was their first film shot originally on 35mm. A museum keeper spits into the eyepiece of an ancient peep show and sets the musty machine in motion, plunging the viewer into a nightmarish netherworld of bizarre puppet rituals among the dirt and grime.

Faust, 1994. Directed by Jan Svankmajer. Running time: 1 hour, 37 mins.

Jan Svankmajer’s follow-up to his acclaimed film Alice is an equally astounding version of the myth of Dr. Faustus. Merging live action with stop-motion and Claymation animation, Svankmajer has created an unsettling universe presided over by diabolic, life-sized marionettes and haunted by skulking human messengers from hell.
