Safari in familiar terrain

Ulrich Seidl: Safari.

: With his dark portrayal of wealthy Austrians and Germans on a hunting safari in Africa, Ulrich Seidl makes it a little too easy for himself.

The art of suffering for the arts

: To Stay Alive – A Method. Director: Erik Lieshout with Arno Hagers and Reinier van Brummelen

: The film adaptation of Michel Houellebecq's essay on the suffering artist is a strikingly profound cultivation of the romantic artist myth. 

Psychopharmaceutical Nation

Anniken Hoel: Cause of death: Unknown.

: What does it help with firefighting at one end when someone is standing at the other and rather on gasoline? Too much is ugly with the world's pharmaceutical industry.

A periphery so peripheral that it is inconceivable

Simon Stadler: Ghost Country.

: Ghostland is an anthropological documentary and road movie of high artistic quality – but the relationship of trust between the filmmaker and the audience is eroding.


: A number of documentaries make their mark in investigative journalism. This is a genre that is currently downgraded in a number of newspaper editorial offices, where hundreds of journalists have been laid off in recent years to fill up the shareholder dividend.
