He made a few controvercial films. One of them was his second film, Devil, made in 1972, after which Żuławski got an official ban on directing in communist Poland for a few years. He emigrated to France.
I scrolled through the film, but the plot seems rather surrealistic. In addition, violence, sick sex, murders, complete madness. Too visionary to me. Diabeł is a 1972 Polish historical film written and directed by Andrzej Żuławski. It was released in 1972. At the time of its release it was banned by the Communist government in Poland.  Plot During the Prussian army's invasion to Poland in 1793, a young Polish nobleman Jakub is saved from the imprisonment by a stranger who wants in return to obtain a list of Jakub's fellow conspirators. Following his mysterious saviour across the country, Jakub sees the overall chaos and moral corruption including his father's death and his girlfriend's betrayal. Being apparently demented by what he has seen, he commits a number of seemingly motiveless and gory killings.
