    "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

Youth Without Youth

I had a strange dream last night about Romania and Malta, India and Switzerland. In my dream, Francis Ford Coppola had made a new movie, something about an old man who is hit by lightning and grows a new set of teeth. He collects roses and languages and Bruno Ganz was there, too. He owned […]

The Darjeeling Limited Press Conference

After thinking about it for a week, seeing the final few minutes again and learning that the prequel short Hotel Chevalier is available for free on iTunes, I love The Darjeeling Limited even better than I already did. At yesterday’s press conference at Lincoln Center’s Walter Reade Theater, Wes Anderson, Jason Schwartzman, Adrien Brody, Roman […]

The Darjeeling Limited

What a relief. After The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, I wasn’t alone in diagnosing Wes Anderson with a damn-near terminal case of arrested development. With this story of three brothers on a spiritual quest through India, the precocious director with a sweet tooth for all things quirky proves that he has found a way […]

A Mighty Heart

Angelina Jolie plays Mariane Pearl in Michael Winterbottom’s docudrama about the kidnapping and murder of her husband, the journalist Daniel Pearl. After United 93 and several other pointless exercises in dramatizing the “War on Terror,” you might ask: why bother? We all know what happened to Daniel Pearl–what’s the use in rehashing the story? Is the […]

After the Wedding

AKA the Danish movie that didn’t win the Oscar. Susanne Bier’s drama about a Dane who runs an orphanage in India but has to return to Copenhagen to ask a wealthy man for money is the kind of tale that loses a lot in the telling, and even more if it’s told in advance. It’s […]

Seetha’s Dance

In 1921, hot off Die Spinnen, Fritz Lang was set to direct an adaptation of Thea von Harbou’s novel The Indian Tomb. But producer Joe May was convinced the two-part melodrama would be huge, so he decided to direct it himself. Almost forty years later, when he had a hard time finding work in Hollywood, […]
