A political allegory wrapped in the guise of a gory horror film, Andrzej Zulawski's The Devil did not escape the wrath of communist censorship. The film was banned in Poland for 15 years before getting a sporadic release in 1987. Jakub (Leszek Teleszynski), a young 18th century nobleman, rots in prison for conspiring against the king. A mysterious stranger frees him, but demands a list of Jakub's fellow conspirators in exchange. Jakub follows him on a journey across a nightmarish, snowbound countryside where they witness countless acts of brutal violence. Affected by the overall chaos and moral corruption, the young nobleman descends into madness. "Conducted at a consistently operatic pitch, the camera forever wheeling restlessly, packed with inexplicable outbursts of emotion, sudden devastating moments of violence, and a gravid, promiscuous sexuality" (The Australian). In Polish with English subtitles.
