Crop And Save
Not to be confused with Affinado Fellatio (see The Falls (1980), by Peter Greenaway
First of all, I have to mention I liked Trier until he did Manderlay: big fail.
Second fail was to keep on film-making: this 'Antichrist' thing proves it is a total stupid Catholic post-modern horror marriage movie. Well, it is not even a movie, only for the talking animals.
It surprises me how similar are all the positive critics and comments towards 'Antichrist': they all are orchestrated by the same pattern of thinking, they all are astonished visually and graphically by the images of the film but do not attend to reflex on the whole film concept, which is, as I remarked, A TOTAL FLAW.
It is a disgusting and slow-mo(ngoloid) action drama, or psycho-drama, or Trier-drama, whatever you like: it is a moral, visual, narrative buffet, you take what you like, and then there is a film at the end. Nothing. I am yes disgusted about 'Antichrist'. Not going to see any more paranoid Danish silly-about-flying-on-airplanes filmmaker movies EVER.
Waste of time, really.
Fear of Drowning (1988)
So pedantic... So state-of-the-art technology ... So Greenaway!
And so good.
This is the ultimate self-explanatory presentation of a filmmaker about a film of his own (¡!), introducing video technology, making-of extracts, 1-92 numbers track-list (some of them), and Peter Greenaway's deadpan University lecturer position looking-straight-to-the-camera pedantic talking, which I absolutely adore.
There should be a special 'Drowning by numbers' DVD edition with this 25 minutes film attached. Silly of Greenaway not to have released before! PS: original title of this film is 'Fear of Drowning (by numbers)'
The recurrent usage of 'talking heads' in Greenaway films have appeared in several of his works, such as 'Dante's Inferno. Canto V', 'Tulse Luper'... I believe the same Greenaway appears in both 'Draughstman's' and 'Z.O.O.' DVD editions with an extraordinary oral preface revealing us the tricks of the plot and the images restoration.
