Best animated films: Heaven and Earth Magic

Time Out says

Its maker - the reclusive, eccentric enthusiast for alchemy, Harry Smith spent a decade collecting the thousands of engravings from Victorian magazines and assembling the most extraordinary of animated films. Impossibly, deliriously hermetic, it remains fascinating fir the endlessly inventive way its hero and heroine, constantly change their own form, move through a tapestry of transforming spaces, arcane objects and creatures. Close in feeling to the collages of Max Ernst, it’s as if the latter had met Georges Méliès and together they created a miracle.
