more voyeuristic than Norman Bates ever dreamed of being
We've all heard of voyeurism (think "Psycho"), but never like what the Czech short "Tichy tyden v dome" portrays. A man - most likely on the lam - takes refuge in a house, where he drills holes in the wall, and sees the weirdest things imaginable. This is the sort of thing that could only come from Jan Svankmajer. Working as he did in the Eastern Bloc, Svankmajer probably didn't have a lot of fancy technology, but he clearly had imagination, as these movies show. Believe you me, what happens here is all about imagination.
So "Czech" it out. Like it or not, this is still a movie that you ought to see.
