Where Hukkle's circle-of-life surrealism had a certain twisted charm, this film's sense of the grotesque is more glum than fun. On the tail of such a promising debut, it can't help feeling like a hiccup.
In the grotesque storybook satire Taxidermia, Palfi's so-thought cynicism is merely observing plain (if sickeningly hilarious) truths about our excesses... an intense, disgusting, and probably brilliant experience.
if the imagery is always grotesque, and if the characters are always reduced to their basest drives, Pálfi presents his carnivalesque concerns in an artfully aestheticised package that belies the ugliness within.
