Street of Crocodiles
Directed by Stephen Quay and Timothy Quay • 1986 • United Kingdom
The Quays’ masterpiece, STREET OF CROCODILES is adapted from a short story by Polish writer Bruno Schulz, and was their first film shot on 35 mm. A museum keeper spits into the eyepiece of an ancient peep show and sets the musty machine in motion, plunging the viewer into a nightmarish netherworld of bizarre puppet rituals among the dirt and grime.
