18 January 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The short films of Jan Svankmajer are very unusual to say the least. Using what are often everyday objects and rubbish, he is able to create some amazingly bizarre stop-motion films. Each is very creative but some are so creepy that I am not sure they are for everyone's taste. However, I love the films and recommend you see them as soon as possible.

In this second disc from "The Collected Shorts of Jan Svankmajer", you see his later films--that is, later but not including his more recent ones. As far as I could tell, there is no collection featuring his more recent films. Compared to disc one, this collection is more interesting--and more weird. In fact, every one of them is well worth seeing--even the couple that are under a minute long. Exceptionally well animated and never dull--this collection is a must-see for anyone who likes international animations.
