Czech surrealist Jan Švankmajer’s fantastic Conspirators of Pleasure screened tonight at the International House. This is the first Švankmajer feature I’ve seen (though I’ve seen plenty of his shorts) and I’m pleased to report that it was well worth another 85 minutes in the theater’s notoriously uncomfortable seats. The International House’s Post-Communism Film Series (which this film was a part of) continues through the weekend and I nearly shit myself when I noticed they’ll be screening Russ Meyer’s Beyond the Valley of the Dolls on May 24 as part of their International Cult Films Series. My calendar is marked.
