Glass Lips

Polish surrealist Lech Majewski is a real problem, a filmmaker of extraordinary visual talent whose thematic material seems confined to the sort of Catholic sexual hang-ups Martin Scorsese worked through in his student films. This wordless 2006 feature, adapted from Majewksi's installations at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and originally titled after Jean Cocteau's Blood of a Poet (1930), centers on a young man in a mental institution and his awful reveries of childhood and his parents' perverse marriage. Stigmata, breast milk, pig carcasses, and forced meals of canned dog food are the dominant motifs, rendered with such compositional flair that you may actually forget how trite they are. 99 min.
