    "A fast, complex, exhilarating roadster ride through history and time.... Kino is an intoxicating Euro-brew, written with enormous skill and dedication." — Frederick Barthelme

    "Jürgen Fauth's deft mashup of genre and historical period is both a full-throttle literary thriller of ideas and a contemplative examination of film and fascism. Kino is a debut of great intellectual  force."– Teddy Wayne

    "A surprising alternative history. Kino brings the golden age of German cinema to light with loving, sometimes gritty, detail and great precision." – Neal Pollack, author of Jewball.

    "A delirious melange of conspiracy, magic, sex, history, bad behavior, and cinema, Kino is a stellar entertainment, and Jürgen Fauth is a writer of rare, sinister imagination." – Owen King, author of Reenactment

    "A light-hearted romp that leads straight into darkness and back through the shadows on the wall."– Ben Loory, author of Stories for Nighttime and Some for the Day

    "Movie nuts arise! A happy and felicitous debut."– Terese Svoboda

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

Wow, what a fucking waste. You see, Alan Moore’s comic book is witty, literate, and surprisingly rich in character–one of the best comics of the last few years. The movie reduces it to a silly, boring B-picture with nothing to recommend it: not the visuals, not the by-the-book action scenes, not Sean Connery’s ham-fisted acting, not the laughable plot. Captain Nemo looks like a guy in a Halloween costume, with fake beard and turban, the CGI is mediocre, and somebody thought it was a good idea to add Tom Sawyer and Dorian Gray to the lineup of Victorian heroes. Trash trash trash, and a goddamn shame. Somebody like Peter Jackson could have done miracles with Alan Moore’s original material. Let’s hope when they finally do Watchmen, they don’t botch it like this.
