Kanárek / My Detox

The pre-credit Kurt Vonnegut quote comparing risk-taking artists to the canaries prized by coal miners for their sensitivity to danger sets the stage for “My Detox,” a fictionalized telling of helmer Viktor Taus’ heroin addiction and recovery that has enough going for it outside the drug-taking activity to fit fests nicely as a slice of contempo Czech culture.

Rychlé pohyby očí / Rapid eye movements

The “story” of Rychle pohyby oci – named after the phase of sleep in which dreaming occurs – concerns a teenaged musician named Poppy and the world he lives in. The structure of the film mirrors the form and content of his dreams, or rather his nightmares, which centre on his relationship with a girl called Akja and his preoccupations with violent death. While the film lacks any coherent form of plot in the traditional sense of the term, there are plenty of opportunities for Spacek to experiment with colour, light and sound as he enters Poppy’s mind.
