Magnificent Cinema (86 movies items)

"A hypnotic horror movie in which a Nazi working in crematorium drives to madness. Visually so fucking amazing that only because of it you have to confess it as a masterpiece. Rudolf Hrusínský is absolutely magnificentand the soundtrack is thrilling. The Cremators becomes more and more thrilling towards the end. One of the clearest gems of Czech new-wave. "
