One of the great curios of the silent era, Häxan (Danish for ‘witches’) is a bubbling cauldron of costume drama, documentary and animation. Starting out as a treatise on medieval beliefs, it wends towards reflections on modern-day psychiatric practices. The film sparked outrage, nearly sinking the career of director Benjamin Christensen (who plays a lecherous Satan).
