  1. chatsky's rating of the film A Spectre Is Haunting Europe

    Маяковский с бородой, это как-то слишком дико выглядит

  2. Andreas Holz's rating of the film A Spectre Is Haunting Europe

    Dull nonsense. First good joke after 42 minutes. Some nice pictures and poems, that's all.

  3. schmalhans's rating of the film A Spectre Is Haunting Europe

    Intriguing and humorous film that meditates on popular meditations on communism. In a seemingly post-ironic mode every line is theatre and every gesture an empty reference. Yet, it lacks to maintain a certain drive which leads to the episodic tableaus being evened out a little too much.

  4. Lu Who's rating of the film A Spectre Is Haunting Europe

    miganhô n'umor... not really

  5. Samuel Wells's rating of the film A Spectre Is Haunting Europe

    A Spectre is Haunting Europe takes a long time to get started for its short run time, fully the first 24 minutes do not come together effectively, it feels sparse and disjointed. Only once the Spectre begins to be put on display does it begin to showcase its fit more fully. The final quarter of film is when it is truly makes its intensions known. The poetry recitation throughout is keenly charming and playfully witty

  6. Cinemachiavelli's rating of the film A Spectre Is Haunting Europe

    Bewildering but I just liked looking at it. At the sounds and the text too.

  7. EdieMaas's rating of the film A Spectre Is Haunting Europe

    If Godard had been a hilarious German 80s baby... This is great! (If maybe 10 minutes too long). A fun little auteurist calling card. Exactly the stuff I expect from Mubi. Not disappointed. (And that Comrade Dumb-Ass guy was decidedly hot). 3.75

  8. David R Williams's rating of the film A Spectre Is Haunting Europe

    I don’t know. I was just bored.

  9. Shane Ewen's rating of the film A Spectre Is Haunting Europe

    I like Radlmaier's later films, and Rtveliasvili is such an expressive actor, but I struggled with this film, which is terribly turgid for such a short running time.

  10. ali sengul's rating of the film A Spectre Is Haunting Europe

    Beautiful cinematography. Unfortunately, I missed the entire what may the director be saying due to subtitling. I always wonder though how should the intellectual engagement match the photographic and vice versa. I think there is deep sincerity in the photographic quality of the film and in its literary muse but i believe they don't get along well in one film.

  11. msmichel's rating of the film A Spectre Is Haunting Europe

    Chris Marker slowly rolls over in his grave.

  12. SpursSince67c's rating of the film A Spectre Is Haunting Europe

  13. vitofreire's rating of the film A Spectre Is Haunting Europe

    annoying annoying annoying annoying. That grin may have had no cat, but it has a filmmaker in Radlmaier. The whole thing is drenched in a hopeless sabotage that dumps anything tasteful out of the frame. It is just an aesthetic joke. A film that is about itself because it is not capable of being about anything else.

  14. Leif Erikson's rating of the film A Spectre Is Haunting Europe

    My God, isn't it better to be an ox, or just a horse, so long as it can work, rather than a young woman who wakes up at noon, has her coffee in bed, and then spends two hours dressing? Oh, it's awful!

  15. Elise's rating of the film A Spectre Is Haunting Europe

    Maybe it is because I am not German, not from Germany, and not well educated in the subject, but I had an extremely difficult time understanding a majority of this film. I do understand the focus is the clashes between the working class and the wealthy, but the formalist style makes the story itself difficult to follow. If you are highly educated in German government and history, this film will amuse you to no end.

  16. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film A Spectre Is Haunting Europe

    Not my cup of tea, really, but also not really tea at all. More like nettles and twaddle steeped in hot water, sprinkled with politics and pretension, and left to stew for much longer than necessary. Others may get more out of this. I was just glad it was a relatively short film.

  17. captainfez's rating of the film A Spectre Is Haunting Europe

    If only he really were some clouds inside pants.

  18. DrFirestone's rating of the film A Spectre Is Haunting Europe

    This feels more like a German version of Godard at his worst that haunts Europe (and not only Europe I suppose)... There are a couple of clever moments and some deadpan political humour, but unfortunately for for the most part, this is just a lot of incoherent drivel. There aren't many films nowadays daring to handle the topic, so I do appreciate the effort.

  19. James Gaunt's rating of the film A Spectre Is Haunting Europe

    Fantastic, apart from the use of a digital zoom to end scenes. Occasionally there were no subtitles as well. But minor complaints aside, this is a very enjoyable film, and it was especially nice to see the use of text on screen at times.

  20. Loz Loory's rating of the film A Spectre Is Haunting Europe

    I liked the bit about Mayakovsky being released from Malevich's painting every ten years. I wish the subtitles were not the same color as the background at times. Much of this was over my head. Not that everything has to be explained in full, but I had the distinct feeling that some pretension was at work.

  21. Zachariah Rigby's rating of the film A Spectre Is Haunting Europe

    It wasn't funny and I have no idea what was going on. The poetry was good though.

  22. Superfrog's rating of the film A Spectre Is Haunting Europe

    An hard watch which did not satisfy me much, no matter how receptive I should be to the subject.

  23. Juurakkotukka's rating of the film A Spectre Is Haunting Europe

    But why was she wearing those shorts when all men were wearing warm clothes?

  24. fearraigh's rating of the film A Spectre Is Haunting Europe

    Straub/Huillet meet Rivette. A bit opaque in parts but this is enjoyable abstruse stuff.
