Mladen Djordjevic – Made in Serbia (2005)

Quote:
How to approach Mladen Djordjevic’s first film, a documentary on the Balkan porn industry, in the wake of the current crop of transgressive cinema coming out Serbia? It is cheap and shoddy and experimental – pretty much a on-the-job-training-ground for the wonderful and excellent follow-up, The Life and Death of A Porno Gang which lifts the best and most interesting visuals and story elements to puts them in service of a vastly improved narrative and artistic framework. The eventual (hopefully soon) DVD release of latter by Synapse Films will have Made in Serbia included as a supplementary feature; and that is about right place for it. It is overreaching and unwieldy at times, but this 97 minute feature is not completely devoid of charms and insight. Read More »

Srdjan Dragojevic – Mi nismo andjeli AKA We Are Not Angels (1992)

Quote:
The Angel and the devil fight for the soul of a Belgrade playboy who made a young girl pregnant.

Quote:
This is one of the cult Serbian movies. Despite some people having emotional outbursts of hatred towards everything about this movie,it’s a great movie. Srdjan Todorovic,as a drummer for Ekatarina Velika (the best Serbian rock band of all time),and an actor in many movies and TV shows has shown that he is extremely talented,contrary to some statements. Uros Djuric has actually done pretty well,considered that he’s a painter,not an actor,so a mix of talents did pretty well. Nikola Kojo,one of the best Serbian actors,was simply brilliant in this movie.His non-emotion standing in this movie gave it the flavour it needed to rise as one of the best Serbian movies ever. A great movie,and a cool comedy! As I said,a cult movie of a generation! Read More »
