The Cremator

The Cremator is a 1969 horror/black comedy from Czechoslovakia.

Youtube has this one in pieces which should autoplay from here:

Senses of Cinema reports that the director "has described The Cremator as an “expressionistic” horror film, which echoes The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari ... in its subjective visualising of the mind of a madman." DVDTalk says, "The Cremator sustains its eccentric, difficult-to-describe mood: an Eastern European fear of helplessness against self-assured authority figures in an unequal power situation."
