Audience Reviews for Prezít svuj zivot (teorie a praxe) (Surviving Life (Theory and Practice))

the freudian oedipal complex and jungian anima and animus is a backdrop for usual five star visuals, and gets a fairy tale treatment the same way alice in wonderland, little otik, and faust got the surreal psychodrama treatment. it's a definite improvement from "Lunacy", and his best feature so far. more plot than usual, and more jam packed with imagery than anything since "Alice" and "Faust".
