Inner Sanctums - Quay Brothers: The collected animated films 1979-2013 on Blu-ray [read more]
Weird doesn't begin to cover it
This comprehensive two-disc Blu-ray set, released by the BFI on 10 October 2016, provides an overview of the Quay Brothers remarkable career. It contains twenty-four of their short films - three UK premieres and five world premieres - and also includes Christopher Nolan's new short documentary, Quay (2015), which reveals the inner workings of the brothers' studio.
Since the late 1970s, the identical twin Quay Brothers have made a unique contribution to animation in general and the puppet film in particular. Filtering arcane visual, literary, musical, cinematic and philosophical influences through their own utterly distinctive sensibility, each Quay film rivets the attention through hypnotic control of décor, camera, lighting, music and movement, evoking half-remembered dreams, fascinating and yet deeply unsettling in turn.
