Inner Sanctums - Quay Brothers: The Collected Animated Films 1979 - 2013 (Blu-ray)

Films by The Quay Brothers
Since the late 1970s, the identical twin Quay Brothers have made a unique contribution to animation in general and the puppet film in particular. Filtering arcane visual, literary, musical, cinematic and philosophical influences through their own utterly distinctive sensibility, each Quay film rivets the attention through hypnotic control of décor, camera, lighting, music and movement, evoking half-remembered dreams, fascinating and yet deeply unsettling in turn.

This comprehensive two-disc set provides an overview of the Quays' career, containing twenty-four of their short films - three UK premieres and five world premieres - and also includes Christopher Nolan's new short documentary, Quay (2015), revealing the inner workings of the brothers studio.

The Cabinet of Jan Svankmajer (1984)

Review
'To enter the impossible, haunted night of a Quay Brothers film is to become complicit in one of the most perverse and obsessive acts of cinema' --Michael Atkinson, Film Comment

'Wonderful, brilliant stuff' --Terry Gilliam

'One of art's most ingenious and visionary collaborations' --Artforum
The last collection went up to 2003, so this should be worth it.
