    "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

Postcards from Berlin

In Berlin, even the wasps love Bionade. We drink it around Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg, at Godot, Fleury, Zapata and Gorki Park. It comes in four flavors: herb, elder, ginger-orange, and lychee. I’ve heard it said that every time you leave your house in New York City, you’re bound to waste twenty minutes and spend […]

Muckworld Roundup – Cheese Edition

My grandmother always said: “Don’t trust anybody who doesn’t like cheese.” It’s been a good week for movies — I saw The Bourne Ultimatum, The Simpsons Movie, Dans Paris, Sunset Blvd, The 11th Hour and the Inland Empire DVD — but it’s time to break up the rave reviews with a little artisanal gouda and […]


It’s a funny thing about reviewing film: ever since we started, Marcy and I barely go to the movies any more. We see screenings, watch screeners, attend festivals. We might go to a premiere, but hardly ever do we stand in line at the box office, ride the endless escalators up multiplex floors, buy soda […]

Queens Food

Instead of long-winded reviews about how yummy it all was, here are some photos of food I’ve enjoyed recently. (More at my Eats Flickr set.) As always, Chowhound and Joey in Astoria are the places to stay hip to Q boro food options. From top left to bottom right: Juicy tofu wrap at the Fresh […]

Fast Food Nation

Excuse me while I barf. Richard Linklater’s dramatic adaptation of Eric Schlosser’s muckraking bestseller plays like Traffic with hamburgers instead of cocaine. The story, such as it is, looks at the problem of mass-produced, mass-marketed food from the point of view of a legion of characters, from the marketing guys in the boardrooms to the […]

Our Daily Bread

Koyaanisqatsi without Philip Glass and more butchery. Nikolaus Geyrhalter observes the industrialized production of food–cucumbers, tomatoes, olives, salt, fish, beef, eggs, apples, pork, chicken, etc etc. Except for casual snippets overheard during worker’s poignant luch breaks, there is no dialogue–just striking images: men crawling after a neon-lit vehicle on their knees to harvest salad at […]

Suck Me Raw

Back from Jazzfest. Need sleep.
