A Case For A Rookie Hangman DVD

A Case For A Rookie Hangman DVD
Pavel Juracek's free-form and darkly surreal adaptation of Gulliver's Travels channels Kafka and Lewis Carroll to create one of Czech cinema's most audacious and disturbing works. Lost on a country road, a man finds himself trapped in a nightmare world that mirrors communist-era Czechoslovakia. This transgressive film greatly provoked the authorities and its release was severely curtailed. Juracek, co-writer of Czech masterworls Daisies, Ikarie XB 1 and A Jester's Tale, never directed another film - but his commitment to poetic and political truth remains one of the most important in all Czech cinema.
