"DIR: Jan Svankmajer SUMMARY: A man is imprisoned in a sinister flat where nothing is quite as it seems. WHY IT'S HERE: Seen by many as an allegory for the secret police interrogations carried out during the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia, Jan Svankmajer's 'The Flat' is an intense, claustrophobic surrealist nightmare in which a man is trapped in a strange room in which nothing is what it seems. Water gushes out of the stove, the light bulb batters a hole through the wall, food is inedible "
