The Ear (Karel Kachyna, 1970)

****
Czech Republic

It's only logical that Karel Kachyna's biting, claustrophobic assault on political surveillance in Communist Czechoslovakia was banned in the country for however many decades. It's a hothouse marriage melodrama crossbred with the daily terror of living in a police state. Not only is it stuffed with incendiary information, it's startlingly vivid too.
