Lunacy

The latest provocation from surrealist master Jan Svankmajer (Little Otik) deliriously combines live action, stop-motion animation, kinky sex, Euro-trash violence, black comedy and lots of frisky meat puppets. In (supposedly) nineteenth-century France, a young man named Jean Berlot becomes caught up in the nightmarish world of a mysterious, decadent Marquis (Jan Triska, The People Vs. Larry Flynt): orgiastic black masses, "therapeutic" funerals and an asylum with a smorgasbord of macabre treatments and tarred-and-feathered doctors. Described by Svankmajer himself in a prologue to the film as a "philosophical horror film," Lunacy is loosely based on two short stories by Edgar Allan Poe and inspired by the works of the Marquis de Sade.
