The cumulative impact of Little Otik is engrossing and provocative, and Svankmajer draws splendid ensemble performances across the board.

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.

Subversively funny, it's a welcome alternative to the big-budget movies flooding into theaters at this time of year.

A handmade dream, cobbled together from dirt, wood and more imagination than most of us can muster in our most fevered states.

May be overlong, but the excessive length contributes to its realness -- its uncanny ambition to bring objects to life.
