    "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

Night Watch

Fox Searchlight somewhat helpfully included a defective DVD of the first movie with their schwag bag for Day Watch (along with small size t-shirts and an astronaut sew-on patch for Sunshine).

Nosferatu the Vampyre

Ophelia in Queens

The fruits of procrastination: instead of writing, I threw together a sixty second movie in the spirit of the Vampire Blogathon, featuring the protean acting talents of Marcy Dermansky and Klaus Kinski, with music by Tomas Phusion. Happy Halloween. [tags]video, youtube, marcy, jurgen, nyc, queens, klaus kinski, nosferatu, halloween, vampires, cc[/tags]

Blade 2

I’m not sure what I was thinking–I must have rented this Wesley Snipes/Vampire thing to counteract NYFF-induced art house overload, or perhaps to get a better grip on director Guillermo Del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth, which is showing at the festival and which I liked a lot. Either way, I suppose filmmaking for 12-year-old boys has […]

The Diggs – Live at Sin-e

You might have heard me moan about editing that damn rock video for the last few weeks. Well, here’s the fruit of our labor: The Diggs – Live at Sin-e. The truth is, Jordan and I had a fine time patching this together, eating Cuban pork stew, and playing San Andreas while we rendered. We’re […]
