Despite this, hundreds of bewildered men stand around a circus trailer (or corrugated iron box) in the main square, waiting to see the main attraction - the stuffed carcas ... (more)

Film Journal 2014 (241 movies items)

"11/7 Werckmeister Harmonies is a film about complacency. It is like a father, asking "Why did you fail?". But the father doesn't ask you but instead himself in the mirror, covering in shame as you secretly watch from the sidelines. "Why did you give up?" "Why did you fall into this life?" And these aren't even questions loaded with a sense of guilt or certainly not anger. They're questions intended to create an understanding of a philosophical statement that has already formed in the head of th"

"26.5.2014 Saattoi olla ehkä vähän liiankin helppoa vain uppoutua hitaaseen fiilistelyyn mukaan ja elokuvan luoman maailmankuvan ihasteluun, kun Lars Rudolphin päähenkilö kulkee sirkusalueen ja omien mestojensa välissä, elokuvan näyttäessä periaattessa hänen kauttaan loittonevaa kaupunkiyhteisöä, lukuisia synkkiä ja ilmeettömiä kasvoja ihmismassoissa ja lopun alun tunnelmia ja yleistä kylmyyttä, kun mies itse vain haluaisi esimerkiksi näyttää muille kuinka ihmeellinen otus "

" The sky darkens, then goes all dark. The dogs howl, rabbits hunch down, the deer run in panic, run, stampede in fright. And in this awful, incomprehensible dusk, even the birds... the birds too are confused and go to roost. And then... Complete silence. Everything that lives is still."

"07.08. DVD, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Béla Tarr I liked it which was very disappointing as I expected it to be earth-shattering. Partly, it was that - the direction and cinematography is quite impeccable during something like the hospital raid or the opening scene. The post-rockish score is beautiful, too. It's just that the glorious moments didn't comprise a satisfying whole. I found a lot of the scenes almost completely unnecessary and almost art-house parodying. Two-minute face close-up shot"
