Embodied Thrills and Visceral Rollercoasters in Sebastian Schipper's Victoria — Filmatique - Watch Great Films

In an exclusive essay for Filmatique, Guest Curator Aldo Kempen explores the correspondence between the spectator and the camera as embodied presence in Sebastian Schipper's tour-de-force fourth feature, Victoria.

Strobing lights and pulsing tech-house envelop Victoria as she moves through a cavernous, dilapidated club that could not be anywhere but Berlin. With a score produced by the house music coryphée DJ Koze, the eponymous film, Victoria , tracks—quite literally (as the film is shot in 'one-take')

The Non-Binary Vectors of Import/Export — Filmatique - Watch Great Films

In an exclusive essay for Filmatique, Guest Curator Ritika Biswas traces invisible vectors of inter-European migrations and linguistic markers of entitlement and power in Ulrich Seidl's Import/Export.

While the title of Ulrich Seidl's Import/Export appears to signify a simple parallel story working in opposite directions, the film renders notions of direction compelled by free will and choice as laughable trivialities. The backslash in the title forms an axis that hinges upon either the cons

Flows of Migration and Capital in Ulrich Seidl's Import/Export — Filmatique - Watch Great Films

"Wretchedness commutes between the Ukraine and Austria in Ulrich Seidl's miserable but masterful drama Import/Export. Helmer's trademark unrelenting gaze into despair will come as no surprise to those familiar with his work. Seamless performances by mostly nonpros add vividness to Seidl's dark vision" - Russell Edwards, Cannes Review, Variety

Last few days to watch on Filmatique!

"[A] confident narrative debut… Shot in earthy shades of dusk and dawn, Elin Kirschfink's serene cinematography doesn't romanticize the landscape, but does find friezes of beauty in its severity. Extensive nighttime sequences might strike some viewers as overly dark, but their disorientation effectively mirrors that of the characters"

January: Teutonic Cinema — Filmatique - Watch Great Films

Spotlighting emerging filmmakers alongside established auteurs, Filmatique's Teutonic Cinema Series elucidates an innovative cinematic culture anchored in diverse formal technique—from social realism to narrative ambiguity, aesthetic minimalism to bravura long-take cinematography.

During the month of January Filmatique presents Teutonic Cinema, a collection of formally daring films from contemporary directors working in Germany and Austria. Karl Markovics' first feature Breathing portrays a 19-year-old who glimpses the possibility of living outside the stewardship of

Hard to See, Hard to Watch: Hard to be a God — Filmatique - Watch Great Films

In an exclusive essay for Filmatique, Guest Curator Jacob Browne assesses Hard to be a God as a film that scrutinizes just how impossible it can be to see with any clarity, to maintain the neutrality of the observer, and to watch without being either transformed or petrified.

For all of its maddening, challenging qualities, it should be made clear at the outset that the title of this article is not meant as a critical dismissal of Aleksei German's final feature, Hard to be a God (2013).  Indeed, as a passion project some 50 years in the making, from a dire

Queer Adolescence(s) and Shifting Intersectionality in Don't Call Me Son — Filmatique - Watch Great Films

In an exclusive essay for Filmatique, Guest Curator Aldo Kempen examines Anna Muylaert's Don't Call Me Son as deconstructing a historically contingent conception of adolescence, situating coming-of-age culturally and geographically, and spotlighting a queer(ing) fluidity.

Pierre (Naomi Nero) prowls around a makeshift party as Don't Call Me Son opens—his lavish locks draped around his face. After he (or they, or she; we'll return to this later) seduces a girl, the two make their way to a bathroom to consummate their youthful passion. Pierre takes off his pants,

"Mr. Dolan sees the comedy in Hubert's pain, and knows enough not to burlesque it (or to burlesque it only gently). Better yet, he has compassion for Chantale, a single mother with a difficult son. When they sit side by side, bickering in the car—about the radio, about what other moms do and how other sons behave—Mr. Dolan captures something specific about these two people and also something more universal about the rope-a-dope dance between sullen adolescent and parent" - Rachel Saltz, Film Review, The New York Times

Non-/Human Hinterlands in Neon Bull — Filmatique - Watch Great Films

In an exclusive essay for Filmatique, Guest Curator Ritika Biswas evaluates Neon Bull as a hybrid queer, political, and social performance that eschews the eco-utopian, portraying non-/human worlds as uneasy assemblages.

In Boi Neon (Neon Bull) , humans and non-humans coalesce in tenable, queer ways, forming more than merely murky concoctions; rather, they come together as immiscible yet inextricable substances that passively resist normative epistemologies. Humans copulate with one another as horses calmly chew
