Critic Reviews for Surviving Life (Theory and Practice)

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (11) | Rotten (1)

  • A hit-the-ground-dead Freudian romp about an office worker's dream life.

    December 8, 2011 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The film interestingly and subversively takes its stand on the idea that dreams are the real thing; waking life is an exotic, strange tissue of unreal diversions.

    December 1, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • One of the most imaginative and visually arresting films of the year. Essential viewing.

    December 1, 2011 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It harnesses the skewed workings of the subconscious, confirming Svankmajer as a master filmmaker and knocking films like 'Inception' and 'The Matrix' into a cocked hat.

    November 29, 2011 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • The Czech animation maestro's first feature for six years is a welcome, if sometimes slight, return. It's still 20 percent more weird and wonderful than your average dream-exploring, Freud-featuring cut-out animation.

    November 28, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Weird without being alienating, educated without being haughty and heartfelt without being (too) sentimental, "Surviving Life" is a psychoanalytically guided tour through the dreams of a distressed individual.
