Going to Drohobych this weekend and it got me to thinking about Drohobychian author/artist Bruno Schultz, which then got me to thinking about the Quay Brothers' stellar interpretation of his novella, Street of Crocodiles.
Set in the author's home town during the interwar years, when there was forced assimilation and a growing consumer culture, it is a surreal analysis of a spiritually bankrupt society. And the film is a barren and highly stylized exploration of the novel's desperate psychologies:
