  • Indeed, compared to many Sokurov films, this one has an enlivening paradoxicality: it's morbid but upbeat, grim yet rapturous. show more

  • German history and culture are among Sokurov's concerns in this visually compelling, intellectually scattershot movie. show more

  • This is far from a dull, academic work and the fast-paced talk is matched by swiftly changing scenes full of vibrant visuals. Life bubbles out of each frame in a grungy, foul-smelling rush. show more
