For the past forty years, Jan Svankmajer (Alice, Little Otik) has been hailed as one of cinema's most consistently surprising, wildly imaginative and remarkable surrealists of our time. Utilizing a delirious combination of puppets, humans, stop-motion animation and live action, Svankmajer's films conjure up a dreamlike universe that is at once dark, macabre, witty and perversely visceral. This collection of remarkable short works pays tribute to an artist that has mesmerized audiences the world over, inspiring filmmakers from the Brothers Quay to Tim Burton and Terry Gilliam. Volume 2 includes: "Dimensions of Dialogue," "Down to the Cellar," "The Pendlum, the Pit and Hope," "Meat Love," "Flora," "The Death of Stalinism in Bohemia," "Food," BBC Documentary: "Animator of Prague", Selected Svankmajer Poems.

This presents some of the finest in surreal imagery, carried by vankmajer's brilliant stop animation. Thought-provoking and beautifully executed, this extends the definition of what animation can be.
PS: This appears to be the second disk of "The Collected Shorts of Jan vankmajer" (ASIN: B0009KA8JY) repackaged as a single disk. If you're at all interested, go for the whole collection, not just this half.
