Jaroslaw Kuisz comments on two iconic Polish films that show the brutality, fear and loneliness that have accompanied the new political order. In Wladislaw Pasikowski’s Psy (Pigs, 1992) a former security service agent turned respectable post-communist policeman resolves to avenge the death of three colleagues.
