Alexander Kluge's News from Ideological Antiquity begins with Russian filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein's ambitious but unrealized plan to combine Karl Marx's Capital and James Joyce's Ulysses. For over nine hours, the film expands in concentric circles as Kluge, his guests, interlocutors and monologists make associative links on a range of topics that starts from a filmic discussion of Eisenstein's notes. .

Jacob G (au) wrote: Surprisingly solid anthology. While the frame for presenting these stories is fairly mediocre, the actual short films range between "better than expected" and "whoa, holy cow that was much better than i expected." Even the low end of the spectrum managed to engage me as a viewer, even when the storyline was ridiculous, absurd, and downright gruesome. The story hooked me and I couldn't wait to see how they ended it. And that's pretty good. But the two standout stories (The Accident, Vision Stains) are what take this up a few grand notches. The Accident is a poetic exploration of a defining moment in a young girl's life. A number of the scenes in that are shot in a way that made it feel like it was taken out of a Lars Von Trier film. Vision Stains has one of the most beautifully ambitious sci-fi plot I've seen in a long time. It should be made into a full length, though it stands fairly well as-is.

Scott G (jp) wrote: Crooklyn is a sentimental look at the life of a Brooklyn family in the 70's without being overly nostalgic. A surprisingly accessible Spike Lee film, there isn't a character with which the viewer cannot empathize.

Anders J (fr) wrote: "Miguel i'm your sister, stop looking at me that way!". "Bloody Moon" har et ufortjent rykte p seg, dette grunnet video nasty hysteriet p 80-tallet. Hvor selv de tammeste filmene ble bannlyst fra Storbrittania bare fordi coveret antydet at filmen inneholdt ekstreme mengder med vold.N blir det bde og nr det kommer til denne, for selv om den inneholder en del vold, og noen riktig s fine effekter, finnes det ingenting her som kan mle seg med de hardeste slasherne fra USA p dette tidspunktet. Sett bort i fra de nevnte kvalitetene er dette en horribel film p alle tenkelige mter.Plottet er ikke eksisterende, men skuespillerne gjr til gjengjeld s drlige jobber at det blir fort glemt.En annen ting som m nevnes er musikken, for disco rlet som er blitt brukt her m sies vre noe av det verste som finnes. Greit, disco vil da bestandig vre harry, men det kan funke, Riz Ortolani's musikk i "House On The Edge Of The Park" er et glimrende eksempel p nettopp dette. Men det vi fr servert her gir meg lyst til klore av meg rene. Det trekker med andre ord ikke opp en allerede skadeskutt filmopplevelse kan man si.Nei, som nevnt tidligere henger ryktet til filmen enda igjen, og er en av de frste filmene som dukker opp nr Franco's filmografi nevnes. Noe jeg finner svrt synd, da dette helt klart er en av hans svakeste.Det finnes dog god underholdning i mye av det som utspiller seg p skjermen, hvis man er mottakelig for ost av god gammel rgang.

Ethan P (it) wrote: While the pace was a little slow for me and the atrocities of the Rwandan Genocide seemed to be a little censored, the film offers a great heartfelt look at a man trying to protect his family and keep his people alive in the middle of turmoil and injustice.
