Faust (1994), directed by Jan Svankmajer (Czech Republic), is a very free adaptation of Marlowe’s ‘Doctor Faustus’, Goethe’s ‘Faust’ and various other treatments of the old legend of the man who sold his soul to the devil. Svankmajer’s Faust is a nondescript man who, after being lured by a strange map into a sinister puppet theatre, finds himself immersed in an indescribably weird version of the play, blending live actors, clay model animation and giant puppets.
