at the circus
28 January 2017 | by ruud-35See all my reviews

I have always been a big fan of the work of Seidl. Seen most of his work and it always brought a big smile on my face, even when the subject was not so funny. Seidl's work has a clear signature, a lot of his images are styled. After seeing this documentary at the International Filmfestical Of Rotterdam it felt as too much fiction in a non fiction very sad story about hunters. It's a matter of taste you can argue about. But what me stroke after my dislike is that it suddenly felt as a conceptual trick which he is repeating over and over again. It brings him success that's for sure, but he lost my respect with his provoking appeal of a group of people with a disturb way of thinking. In my eyes it had nothing to do with objectivity but with a form of repeating art.
