    "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

Babel

Didn’t hate this quite as much as Marcy, but some of that probably has to do with watching it in installments, my own little miniseries of misery. Not the ideal way to watch anything, but I simply couldn’t stand to sit through it all at once.

What’s Babel about? Global scenes of suffering, vaguely interrelated, adding up to nothing whatsoever. The title suggests that there’s a point made about communication with all that screaming and bleeding, but what exactly is it? Seemed to me, the take-away was: guns make bad presents. I already suspected as much.

Babel. Alejandro González Iñárritu, 2006. *
