    Halloween Party

    Don't know if the dog did the right thing after all, kid probably was right to put his head in a paper bag after all. Though nothing says "Well really, I wanted two daughters" than dressing your son up as a female scarecrow. Now a dog that terrorises schoolchildren and feasting on their remains - THAT'S a Halloween film I'd watch!

  • Rhine River

    Rhine River

    Gruff narration leading to a snapshot of industry on the Rhine. It's good that later documentaries by Nestler smoothed out the rough narration because some of these early shorts are not the most pleasant to listen to - a discord between film and narrator that jars.

    ★★★½

    It's basically a toilet changing colours set to a Toshi Ichiyanagi soundtrack that sounds like you're in the midst of a nuclear meltdown. Coupled with the visuals, it goes rather well I think. Having said that, this is the kind of film you would (or could) see getting spoofed on comedy shows that make fun of pretentious avant-garde/arthouse cinema types because it's THAT kind of film.

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    If there were ever a further illustration of how to lose a philosophy for your film with a director who's big on visuals but a little bit sketchy on storyline, this is your prime suspect. I had dreaded this film since it was made public that they were setting up a sequel.

    Visually it looks quite easy on the eye but to my mind it looks a little too clean and orderly for a post-apocalyptic world, there's no real sense…
