Very Effective

So, apparently this movie is super rare and eventually I got my hands on a bootlegged copy (don't judge me, I'm not proud of it!) The DVD I now own is the short version (at 75 minutes) and has somewhat grainy picture quality. The plot follows the homicidal maniac credited simply as 'the psychopath' (eerily played by Erwin Leder,) who is released from prison where he served time for the murder of a... read more

quite a good flick - although the way the director did the murders really come across as so clumbsy - it was almost comical - shame as if these most important scences were polished then this could have been a real gem. camera work is fantastic and surely later films must have taken some of this onboard.

"11.12.2020, tietsikka No tässä on kyllä psykopaattielokuvien isää & äiteetä, jää Hohdot ja American Psychot ja Natural Born Killersit ynnä muut kyllä ihan kakkoseksi. Todella tiivistunnelmainen, kuumeinen ja häiriintynyt teos, joka ei kuitenkaan missään vaiheessa tulvi yli äyräiden tai ammu överiksi, vaan pysyy aivan jäätävän vertahyytävän kuumottavana koko pituutensa ajan. Klaus Schulzen musiikki on kyllä elementissään tässä, ja innovatiivinen ja tyylitajuinen kamer"

"Gerald Kargl’s Angst is a 75-minute cinematic panic attack. Body-mounted cameras, high-angle tracking shots, amplified sound design, and a bone-chilling krautrock score swirl together to create a manic, propulsive energy that’s as disorienting to the viewer as the implacable urge to kill is for Erwin Leder’s unnamed psychopath. Angst elides all psychological trappings, instead tapping directly into this all-consuming desire for destruction on a purely physiological and experiential level. "

"4.8, PC Tuo vahvasti mieleen Funny Gamesin, joskin Angstin psykopaatti on aivan omaa luokkaansa. Erwin Lederin esittämä tappaja kulkee ympäriinsä kuin eläin kiimassa etsien seuraavaa uhria, ja hahmon mielihalut ovat kovin häiriintyneitä, mutta toisaalta kaveri on niin riutuneen ja heikon näköinen että vähän käy sääliksi. Lisäksi kameratyöskentely on erittäin nättiä katseltavaa."
