Another day, another piece for Europe's Best Website, another article here promoting it and providing backup material. Last time I did this, I ended up in the awkward situation where the backup material was several hundred words longer than the piece it supported. This time, you'll be pleased to hear, we're back to the usual arrangement.
So today on Mostly Film, you'll find an article by me called Surviving Švankmajer, reviewing newly-released DVDs of three feature films by the Czech director Jan Švankmajer. At the start, I mention how the director was initially better known for his short animations, and suggest that you go onto YouTube and watch some for yourself.
Ideally, what you really should do is buy the BFI DVD Jan Švankmajer: The Complete Short Films, which has all of his non-feature work in its best available form. But if you're a cheapskate or want to watch them right now, today's Red Button Feature is a YouTube playlist of eight of my favourite Švankmajer shorts.
