This set - designed as an introduction to the breadth, depth and genius of the Czech New Wave - is an absolute bargain.
This set contains three great gems of the that period of filmmaking in the 1960s which saw Czechoslovak cinema emerge as one of the most innovative and vibrant in the history of cinema. Unlike other "movements" in cinema in the 1960s (the French New Wave, the realist movement in the UK), Czech artists and filmmakers also had to contend with severe government censorship, censure and interference. They say that great art thrives in the face of adversity - well, Czech cinema of that time is proof conclusive of that.
Contained in this set is Jan Nemec's brilliant and unbearably tense pursuit drama Diamonds of the Night; Ivan Passer's affectionate and genuinely funny Intimate Lighting, and Juraj Herz's horrifying The Cremator, a pitch-black comedy of horror with an amazing, chilling performance by the late, great Rudolf Hrusinsky.
Second Run have released all three of these titles individually previously, but this is a great opportunity to pick them up for a bargain price.
