Jan Švankmajer

Czech Republic / Slovakia
2005, 118'

After Alice in Wonderland and Faust, the Czech director takes two short stories by Edgar Allan Poe, a dash of Marquis de Sade and builds a plot about a man that’s convinced to go to an asylum to undergo preventive, but shocking, therapy in order to overcome debilitating hallucinations where he imagines he’s being placed in a straitjacket.
