The Manuscript Found in Saragossa

· bodega

Finally got a chance to see the complete cut of “The Saragossa Manuscript” on DVD on Sunday, a beautiful twisted black-and-white film from 1965 by a Polish director based on an 18th century novel by a Polish count in French about a manuscript in Spain and roughly eight to thirteen levels of stories-within-stories, depending on how you count them. Hints of David Lynch, skulls and crows, Milorad Pavic, Borges, and all that other good hyper- meta- spooky weirdness. I recommend it!Some good links about the movie:
