Snakes and sinners
15 February 2010 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Kinski is acting as if he hadn't read the script, or as if there was no script to begin with. His character Daniel Shore is the only link between two different plot lines, set in Marocco and Germany respectively. While there are some surface similarities between the two stories, it's hard to figure out what's going on, let alone what the actual sequence of events may be. As a result, the whole movie has a dreamy, semi-conscious quality. While that's probably off-putting for most viewers, I think it's actually an accomplishment. If you consider a certain kind of confusion a valuable experience, you will enjoy this. But if you look for straightforward storytelling, it will probably feel like a waste of time. Although David Lynch obviously plays in a league of his own, "Daniel Shore" reminded me of "Lost Highway" in some respects. It's a very promising first feature. I hope this well won't run dry any time soon.
