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.
