The Cremator (1969) dir. Juraj Herz, – Czech language, English subtitles. 95mins.
One of the highlights of Czech New Wave, Herz’s brutally black comedic satire of a mild mannered and gentle Czech cremator who is easily Nazified in 1930s Prague. The film was banned for twenty years on release and became an underground cult classic of monochromatic psychedelia.
