Audience Reviews for Street of Crocodiles

It felt like an eerie stop-motion animation puppet show inside a torture chamber. Doll heads, insects and raw meat are used in disturbing ways. I was fascinated by it.

It's all the screws' fault, I tell you.

It is a dark and melancholic piece which reflects the past in mysterious ways. The mise-en-scene and technique are quite unique and fascinating! This is not your typical animation!
