Jan Svankmajer - Leonardo's Diary



I remember ordering this on my lovefilm about 4 months ago, I think because I read somewhere about his surrealist films. Only got 1964072 but this is my favourite. The juxtaposition of the clips with the old movie clips is genius. Instant visual links between them, similar to what I'm trying to do with the dreams - find either stills or clips that have the same situation and atmospheric feeling for me that I had in the dream - this is very specific and I've had trouble finding exactly the right images as they are in my head which then led to the large dream sketches. But I still think its worth experimenting with a visual collage of information about particular dreams....
