Saragossa Manuscript, The

A cult favorite shrouded in lore and mystique, The Saragossa Manuscript captures the phantasmagoric flavor of author Jan Potocki's original novel of supernatural adventures. During the

Napoleonic wars, a Spanish captain named Alphonse is magically transported into a strange book that propels him through an endless series of haunting and surreal ordeals across space and time.

Directed by Wojciech Has, the film gave the inventive filmmaker an opportunity to exploit his imaginative style. Has fills The Saragossa Manuscript with ghosts, demons, temptresses, conspiracies, doppelgangers, and, of course, magic. Like a cinematic acid trip, the film will haunt you long after it is over - just as it did for Martin Scorsese, Francis Coppola, and Grateful Dead frontman Jerry Garcia who fought to restore the film so new generations could experience it.
