The Street of Crocodiles (1986) was my first Quay Brothers film experience, and I mean experience in the most literal sense. The lights dim, and you slide back in your chair. The screen illuminates with that black glow that spawns a flittering of anxiety in the base of your stomach, even before any images appear. I remember the wooden esophagus with it’s clustered, rusted screws scurrying along the floor, the towering boxes with layers of filth, and that moment on the street where everything comes together.
