Storyline

'Amok' tells 48 hours of the live of Lorenz Fuchs, a middle aged gray accountant who believes his triste and monotonous life being meaningless and absurd. For him the outside world was always hostile and aggressive. When his Boss not only unexpectedly promotes him but also reveals that he knows about his well covert emotional failings, Fuchs is thrown out of his daily routine - his defense lines are crumbling. Well hidden memories of traumatic experiences bring up a long suppressed rage that results in an outburst of violence and a bloodbath. Written by Anonymous

Slowly moving drama of high calibre
23 March 2017 | by kosuchowskiSee all my reviews

Achingly depressive, painful to watch, wonderfully portrayed study of descent into self destruction. Masterful in subtlety of hints and clues that guide us through unravelling of a desperate mind destined for utter destruction. Superb cinematography and soundtrack complement the spiritual desolation; the unnerving feeling of bland hopelessness will haunt you for some time. First time in quite a while I din't regret using Netflix :) Just the the title 'AMOK' is not congruent with deliberate resolve main character carries out his plan, 'Promotion', into annihilation, fits better.
