A Newly Liberated Man Of E. Europe

Posted: May 05, 1994

In Everything I Like, a restless and pictorially ravishing feature by Martin Sulik, our Slovakian hero, Thomas, has recently separated from his wife much in the way his country has separated from the Czech Republic. His first instinct is to flirt with the West - in the form of his English teacher.

A parable of man and nation struggling for identity, Everything I Like follows Thomas through tense encounters with his ex-wife, guilt-ridden episodes with his son, and sexual adventures with his mistress, finally revealing how his odd odyssey adds up to a world view.
