    "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

Yeah, we’ll watch anything with Samantha Morton, even if she sells her son’s beloved collie to Peter O’Toole. What they call “quality family entertainment.” The Loch Ness monster makes a cameo.

The Libertine

Unwatchable, even with the finger on the fast forward button. Johnny Depp, Samantha Morton, and John Malkovich with a ridiculous nose stumble through muddy sets and deliver pompous dialogue; everything has a sepia filter on it.
