a pre production to Anti Christ but more powerful and raw and cult
4 January 2011 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Asudem was made 4 or 5 years before Lars Von Trier made the Anti Christ. it is basically the same situation; with the difference that Shokof,s films are always permitted to show the way to others but never get to be screened for many reasons with being a black listed artist at the peak of the reasons. i remember all scenes from this marvelous great little film with imaginative camera perspectives that was probably made with the sweat of the people who worked with the film rater than any money available and the result is astonishing. some years later Lars WHO I RESPECT AND ALSO ADMIRE AS A DIRECTOR of better visions and thoughts gets perhaps the copy somewhere and is told to make this one over again, with some real money ,name actors and we have something? well, they did, and Anti Christ is a good film but this Asudem thing is in my opinion the real deal. much like Shokof,s mind blowing Seven Servants that was quickly adopted and taken as a concept by kiarostami the year after seven servants was made and hell guess what, they gave the guy the grand Cannes film festival prize for having made a copy with far less originality? Asudem is thought provoking, funny at best, scary and eerie just when it wants to be and free of all borders cause one can see shokof does not give a peanut who watches his movies and or if even his films would ever surface anyone,s attention. that exact thing makes his movies gold for me, and i for one sense that feeling that a master artist delivers something with messed up situations that could only explain how poorly these films of shokof have been financed and or financed at all? i loved asudem just like his great seven servants and wonderfully executed itler,s grave. this man will be registered as one creative mind one day when it is a good day. regardless of how long down the raod that day would be ,go and see asudem; and enjoy being entertained and crazed with a touch of a most ironic brushes of a master painter of our times.
