    "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

Perhaps being force-fed wouldn’t be so bad if they gave you time to chew? The New York Film Festival is in its third week now, and I can feel myself getting numb. I still watch, but it seems harder and harder to get my head around the movies, or cram them into a few pithy paragraphs. Maybe it’s just the aftershocks from Inland Empire, I don’t know. In any case, I’ll leave reviewing Volver to Marcy and just say that it’s my favorite of the recent Almodovars.

Maybe I’ll put some clips from the press conference on YouTube later.

Volver. Pedro Almodovar, 2006. ****
