About this item
Since the late 1970s, identical twins Stephen and Timothy Quay have been creating their unique blend of puppetry and stop-motion animation and have, in the process, spawned an enormous cult following. The Quays display a passion for detail, a breathtaking command of color and texture, and an uncanny use of focus and camera movement that make their films instantly recognizable. Best known for their 1986 film "Street Of Crocodiles" - which filmmaker Terry Gilliam recently selected as one of the ten best animated films of all time - they are masters of miniaturization and on their tiny sets have created an unforgettable world, suggestive of a landscape of long-repressed childhood dreams. This new two-disc set contains thirteen of their classic short films - some never-before-available on DVD - in brand-new, remastered editions (personally supervised by the Quays), plus a collection of "footnotes" including new commentaries, extensive interviews, alternative versions, unrealized pilot projects and more. "Phantom Museums: The Short Films Of The Quay Brothers" also features a 28-page booklet, including an extensive Quay Dictionary and a new essay by film critic Michael Atkinson.
