The Brothers Quay

Where are my miles when I need them? The Brothers Quay are at MOMA.

Most of their animation films feature puppets made of doll parts and other organic and inorganic materials in a dark, moody atmosphere. Their best known work is Street of Crocodiles
 based on the short novel of the same name by the Polish author and artist Bruno Schulz

This short film was selected by director and animator Terry Gilliam as one of the ten best animated films of all time, and critic Jonathan Romney included it on his list of the ten best films in any medium (for Sight and Sound's 2002 critics' poll). They have made two feature-length live action films: Institute Benjamenta, or This Dream People Call Human Life and The Piano Tuner Of Earthquakes

They also directed an animated sequence in the film Frida.

From their best-known film, "Street of Crocodiles."
