Daily Grindhouse: [WORLD CINEMA SPOTLIGHT] THE FABULOUS WORLD OF KAREL ZEMAN - Daily Grindhouse
At the risk of overselling the appeal of Karel Zeman’s VYNALEZ ZKAZY - literally THE DEADLY INVENTION, or, as it’s known in the U.S., THE FABULOUS WORLD OF JULES VERNE —I’m going say it’s one of the best fantasy films you’ve never seen. Never, that is, if you’re an American under the age of 50 or so. And even if you’re over 50, there’s a good chance the title doesn’t sound familiar, but I suspect the memory of it might lurk in the corners of your mind, perhaps labeled “Movie I Probably Imagined.” The reason you might doubt your memory of the film is that it pretty much disappeared in the U.S. after the mid-1970s.
