I've been watching Tajemství Hradu, a Czech film recommended by Candide, and although I started out a bit dubious I quickly got into the spirit of it. The opera silliness makes me laugh, and I've never before seen a villain stabbed with a cello endpin. This film may not be widely known around here, but one person involved with it is: Jan Svankmajer.
Yesterday I watched a film I'd always wanted to see but never had, somehow - Prick Up Your Ears. The acting was fabulous, and the entire thing was as good as it could possibly be.
Update: I just noticed that both films are on yootoob, for whatever that's worth.
