  • Oskar Roehler – Der Alte Affe Angst (2003)

    2001-2010DramaGermanyOskar Roehler

    hypersquared wrote:
    You know you’re in for a ride with this picture from the opening moments. Roehler drops us smack in the middle of a blowout argument between a young couple whose sex life is on the skids. The fight is at that fever pitch where the woman is crying almost convulsively, and where each of them is beginning to lose their grip on saying sensible things and are on the verge of cheap shots and unhelpful attempts at humor. The scene is tangible and familiar to anyone who’s ever grappled with a fraying relationship, and, with a shocking abruptness, we’re immediately in the reality of Robert and Marie.Read More »

  • Gaspard Augé, Xavier de Rosnay, Romain Gavras & So-Me – A Cross the Universe (2008)

    2001-2010DocumentaryGaspard AugéPerformanceRomain GavrasSo-MeUSAXavier de Rosnay

    Extraordinary things always happen when unexpected. During the 18 months Justice spent touring, “extraordinary” didn’t necessarily mean “amazing”, or “great”, (though it sometimes did) but “surreal”, “weird”, “horrendous”, “fascinating”, “paranormal”, etc. To cut a long story short, it means that without anyone to film you twenty-four/seven, no one will believe or get the essence of every moment you’d like to tell them about. So as Justice were about to tour the USA for the second time, multi-awarded directors and intimate friends of the band Romain Gavras and So-Me taped every second of that 3 week tour that looks like it lasted 3 years. This documentary isn’t a report of a Justice live show (the audio CD is here for that), but is all about the extraordinary things that can happen when a bunch of frogs get dropped in dreamy America.Read More »
