Asphyxia
1 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you watched this movie, than you don't need to read this review. I have discovered Tarr with Satantango and since then I have been watching everything that is available on DVDs. This one is skin-close to East Europeans (like me). It is now known that following 1945 this part of the World was programmed to live in poverty, promiscuity and suffocation. Please refer to KGB documents on implementing poor public transportation, crowding people in apartments, denying any individualization, making lives be bared and not lived. Tarr, by means unknown to me, divulges this and also brings the camera so close to skin making any escapism impossible. Suffocated in the family nest. It's the story of all of us living that nightmare. I am 50. My father's inebriated breath still lingers on my pillow.
