The Cremator

Astonishing Masterpiece from the Czech New Wave

(Edit) 17/03/2008

From the opening montage intercutting caged animals at a zoo with the humans observing them this is wonderfully assured and audacious cinema. The performances are chilling, the bleak, sharp visual style adroitly suited to the theme of the mundanity of evil, culminating in the efficiency of the Nazi holocaust. For me though, it is the remorselessly disorientating momentum of the editing that confirms this as one of the great works of the 1960s. How tragic that the Soviet invasion of 1968 killed such creativity.
