The Brothers Quay

Got the BFI two disc set of The Short Films of The Brothers Quay 1979 - 2003 for Christmas. Enthralling stuff. Quite hypnotised by the beauty of the animations, the textures, the music, the shifts of focus and depths of field, and the the glimpses of the hidden worlds. I particularly like the poses of the puppets, the extended hand, the cocked head, the subtle pausing.
