one of the freakiest but best movies I've seen
4 February 2002 | by amd2001See all my reviews

I don't know what it is about Communism and its impact on Polish minds, but any art influenced by a hatred of it comes out awesome. Kingsajz (King Size) is another one of Machulski's satirical masterpieces. Though this movie is brilliant and slightly eerie without any background info, the insider jokes, mainly made at the expense of, you guessed it, the much hated Communist regime, will make you laugh. The movie takes absurd ideas, like soda that is actual a secret formula for un-shrinking, and little people living in a room stacked with old card catalogs, and puts them together into a philosophical movie with a very cliche yet disturbing ending.
