i never chew my cabbage twice

I saw Jan Svankmajer’s films for the first time at my friend Jeremy’s house about 10 years ago. I immediately went out and bought the DVD collections of his work because they blew me away. If you haven’t seen his films, look him up on Youtube right now and prepare to be delighted!

A few years ago, Jeremy was teaching English in Prague and found out where Svankmajer lived and just showed up at his house one day. From what I remember of the story, Jan was either not feeling well or wasn’t at home but Jeremy and his girlfriend got to meet his wife (who was a surrealist painter) and sat and ate and drank tea with her for a bit.

Anyway, check out this short film, Food Part 1. I think it is a really clever use of repetition.
