‘Svankmajer’s Faust is an ordinary, inquisitive Everyman who, upon exiting a Prague subway station, is handed a map that draws him to his doom. Led to an abandoned theater, he finds a copy of Goethe’s Faust, begins to read aloud and unwittingly summons up a doppelgänger Mephistopheles who offers him everything his heart desires in return for his soul. Peopled with shape-changing demons and puppet-versions of Goethe’s characters, Svankmajer’s tour-de-force is hilarious and shocking, and utterly unforgettable.’ Harvard Film Archive
