no entertainment, politics instead
9 December 2004 | by (Salvador, Brazil) – See all my reviews

For people who think that film has to be an entertainment and there's no other possibility for the film language, this movie can be really boring and disappointing. However, for the ones who think that films can question and make us rethink our preconceptions and the ethics of today's society, it can be very interesting, and so can other Alexander Kluge's films. It's so easy to sit and watch a Hollywood-like all-the-time-the-same-old-bulls*** film and leave the movie theater all satisfied and thinking that life is perfect because the threaten was beaten by the great hero. And it is so difficult to stop and bother our notion of time and think about how fake, stupid and paradoxical this society can be. I guess that for the ones who want to get out of this Plato's cave movies like "Die Artisten in der Zirkuskuppel: Ratlos" and "Die Macht der Gefühle" are really worth seeing.
