A museum keeper spits into the eyepiece of an ancient peep-show and sets the musty machine going. Inside, the puppets partake of a series of bizarre rituals amongst the dirt and the grime.

MUBI's take

The Quay Brothers’ legendary stop-motion short was chosen by Terry Gilliam as one of the best animated films ever and its not hard to see why. Based on a short story by Bruno Schulz, Street of Crocodiles is cloaked in shadows and stalked by mystery: as the dormant creakily comes back to life.
