Svankmajer has created a bizarre cinematic treat that pokes fun at obsessive consumer culture.
It's no surprise that Jan Svankmajer's Little Otik is dark, strange stuff.
The cumulative impact of Little Otik is engrossing and provocative, and Svankmajer draws splendid ensemble performances across the board.
Svankmajer sends us home haunted.
Its dark whimsy doesn't hold up for the duration of Svankmajer's film version, which, at more than two hours, seriously wears out its welcome.
127 minutes is a lot of time for a simple movie with one satirical point to make and one animated character to show.

Little Otik is in a class all by itself. Jan Svankmajer is a mad genius of cinema.
A fairy tale for adults, Otik is demented and heartwarming in that particular and unique Svankmajer fashion.
There is an inherent humor to the premise, though there is a concrete desperation at the heart of Little Otik.

An infertile couple pretend a tree stump is a baby, but trouble arises when it comes to life and needs to be fed. The laughs are as twisted as the gnarled roots little Otik uses to grab his dinner in this black comedy adaptation of a European folktale with hints of horror and flecks of surrealism.
Little Shop of Horrors, with a Czech twist. An off-beat (to say the least) rendering of a fanciful fairy tale. Consider this a rave review for a ravenous root. :)
Like merging Lynch's The Grandmother & Eraserhead and making it more straightforward but also more twisted at the same time
Yet another reason for not having kids ever.
