Jan Svankmajer’s Faust is a fantastical, unforgettable rendering of the infamous Dr. Faustus fable of temptation and damnation.

“This is a film which galvanizes the mind and astonishes the eye. In a word, magic.” – Time Out

Borrowing freely from both Marlowe and Goethe and ancient folktales and timeless myths, the story follows a lonely Czech businessman who sells his soul to the devil in return for 24 years of self-indulgence. A visually fantastic combination of live-action, claymation, puppet theatre, stop-motion animation, and other special effects, Svankmajer, one of cinema’s most distinctive and influential animators and surrealist artists, creates an unsettling universe presided over by diabolic life-size marionettes and haunted by sinister human messengers from hell. (Dir. by Jan Svankmajer, 1994, Czech/France/UK/Germany, in Czech with English subtitles, 97 mins., Not Rated)
