(Jan Švankmajer, Czech Republic 1994, 97 min., Czech/Latin w/ subtitles)
Švankmajer. After a stranger hands him an unusual map, an ordinary man (famed Czech actor Peter Čepek) enters an occult world filled with actors, alchemists and demons. Švankmajer’s retelling of the Faust legend transforms a familiar moral the tale into a devilishly inventive take on theater, performance, and puppetry.
