(fr) wrote: Surreal visuals with stately music. Great to see an experimental film from such a master. There are no compromise made to the complexity of the plot, and yet, different directions (self-reflection, language, second chance, romance, and ego) still manage to refer back to the main theme - time. As mentioned, surreal and stately. One of the few movies that lets the viewer think for themselves - rather than telling you where to sit and when to dance.

(de) wrote: the copy I saw had horrendious cut. And it was kind of lame for a realism film even if I consider all this takes place iin Romania ... or maybe especially because of that having come from Central Europe myself... ouch.
(ag) wrote: The last of the Pryor/Wilder films and quite honestly they are a forgotten comedy team. This effort however doesn't really do much to prove that. Pryor is clearly looking like a much frailer version of himself and its actually Wilder who does the bulk of the heavy lifting here. If anything, its a shame that this was one of his last cinematic efforts as he is genuinely likeable on screen. All in all its nothing spectacular, but it does have me intrigued to go back and watch Silver Streak which I've never seen.
(fr) wrote: This film mixes so many sub genres together to create what ends up being a pretty decent movie. While being called Zombie Holocaust, it isn't really about zombies though there are some "creatures" that are zombiesque. It's also a mad scientist film of sorts aka Dr. Butcher, MD but this is also pretty minute. No this is primarily a cannibal film with tons of cannibal action.The gore is of the bright red variety and while there are some good realistic moments of gore using real organs and such, most of the blood is candy apple red. While I enjoy the gratuitous amounts of the red stuff, it's too bad it isn't more realistic.

(gb) wrote: What a beautiful and surreal film. It has the imagery of a Bunuel film and the pacing of a Godard picture - it moves at a remarkable pace. The film is erotic, gorgeous and extremely creepy. Certain images are terrifically haunting. Don't expect everything to make sense. It has the logic of a dream. At its heart, it's a coming of age story about losing virginity or innocence. Major points for originality. The images manage to tap right into our dreams and nightmares. A major Czech cult classic deserving of its strange reputation.
