Critic Reviews for Conspirators of Pleasure
The film's handmade look fits the material, since it's about desires too personal to be mass-produced.
Agreeably witty and bizarre, but patience is required to sustain interest in its intricately oddball, non-verbalized story for nearly an hour-and-a-half.
Audience Reviews for Conspirators of Pleasure
Svankmajer is more interested in detailing than developing & the film feels like a stretched short movie but overall interesting & fun, I've yet to see Faust & Lunacy but Little Otik is my favourite Svankmajer so far
This movie probably deserves a higher rating, but shit: this is not for me.
It's pretty obscene in a harmless way, but come to think of it -sick as it is- there are probably people walking this earth getting of on stuff like this. I mean hey, as long as there are people that pay money for used socks and underwear (this is the most "civilized" example that I can come up with), this doesn't seem very far fetched.
Anywayz, Sigmund Freud is going to have a field day with this one ;)
Conspirators of a Pleasure is a film about private obsessions. The film begins observing the behavior of six people as each is in their own little world gathering and constructing their own desires. There is no dialogue to the film. The theme of the whole film is to keep us watching each character's eccentric behavior build until the nature of the obsession is revealed. Showcasing even more of Jan Svankmajer's great stop-motion animation and a very weird charm.
If everyone is a deviant, then nobody is.
