  2. enzographie's rating of the film Self-Criticism of a Bourgeois Dog

    I was sleepy of my hard work when i watched this movie, so i fell asleep. My dream was bright, red and unchained. Vive le commuinisme!

  3. exanimes's rating of the film Self-Criticism of a Bourgeois Dog

    I would rate this film higher if it would have been made in the fifties and sixties. The most contempary scene in this film, from a political point of view, were two persons collecting bottles. I think Radlmaier knows his filmical experiments about communism are late to the party and he makes fun of himself in the end but he screams into a void nonetheless. We need another kind of political movie right now.

    Excellent, excellent, excellent!

  5. +MLP+'s rating of the film Self-Criticism of a Bourgeois Dog

    "what I always admired in Godard is how he manages to talk about political and philosophical subjects and at the same time work with burlesque slapstick comedy. I think there’s something that feels very right [about that]. In a way it also creates a playfulness toward reality and oppression." Interview with Julian Radlmaier: https://tinyurl.com/y7jztj5a

  11. Étrange's rating of the film Self-Criticism of a Bourgeois Dog

    A movie without genre, because it refuses to focus on a purpose. Rather, it expresses the roaming of Radlmaier's own mind. That is why the movie is about the universe of its own making. Self-reference taking the place of complexity as the director goes on about he's own process and he's own set of beliefs. With a good eye and some low tempered humour, if the director finds what to say, he might be great.

  12. ujjwal's rating of the film Self-Criticism of a Bourgeois Dog

    the approach to the debate is certainly from a privileged situation but there is a critique of that too. the fact that j is himself the protag and is making a film within, adds that layer well. I really also liked the characters at one point saying - thank god, it was just a film, while still being there. the other perspectives are portrayed a bit simplistically but with the honesty of the position being viewed from.

  13. EdieMaas's rating of the film Self-Criticism of a Bourgeois Dog

    How does this even exist? This is amazing!

  14. John Matrix's rating of the film Self-Criticism of a Bourgeois Dog

    Looks great. Radlmaier def knows how to frame a scene. The mockery of self-serving political cinema is welcome but much of the humor falls flat. The last quarter, the film within a film, drags on forever. It's intentionally indulgent & simpleminded, but that doesn't make it less painful. The layers of self-awareness are fascinating. Bourgeois Dog is an irony onion. Reminded me of Shrek.

  15. Seesaw's rating of the film Self-Criticism of a Bourgeois Dog

    Looks like an instragram continuation that disguises the eyes into another trendy film that creates more clever hipsters whose motto is 'Not trying but trying' egoistic film that masterbates over honesty.

  16. Joao Pedro Amorim's rating of the film Self-Criticism of a Bourgeois Dog

    As a portrait of a generation of marxists that I feel to belong to, I can't but feel depicted. The belief in a system of values that we assume as impossible - as Zizek puts it, Fukuyama is right in the unconscious level - as well as some contradictory personality traits for a marxist are here exemplary deconstructed with a Deus ex machina mechanism prophetically announced. Contemporary thought lacks faith in itself.

  17. Dimitris's rating of the film Self-Criticism of a Bourgeois Dog

    Very smart, funny and honest filmmaking on the impossibility(?) of political cinema today, which will always come from a place of privilege in relation to its subjects. And an absurdist commentary on communism's place in late capitalism (another impossibility?) and the fragmented nature of Marx's legacy, who left us a blueprint based on which multiple versions of communism(s) have been built. Which one do we want?

  18. yannisky's rating of the film Self-Criticism of a Bourgeois Dog

    The ghosts of Godard and Bunuel haunt this film - but he has found his own charming way to let a multitude of voices present the entrenched political arguments about our world.

  19. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Self-Criticism of a Bourgeois Dog

    The first proper FULL feature from director Julian Radlmaier explores politics in a surreal, meta narrative that fans will be familiar with from his other works. It doesn't always work as well as he would like it to, but there's enough here to enjoy and think about, as well as some great humour throughout.

  20. Iordan Hristov's rating of the film Self-Criticism of a Bourgeois Dog

    Awesome, kind of like the young Bruce La Bruce

  21. lou.'s rating of the film Self-Criticism of a Bourgeois Dog

    This is funny and I loved it.

  22. mike's rating of the film Self-Criticism of a Bourgeois Dog

    雷德梅尔和共产主义杠上了,用了三部政治喜剧来讨论,同样的演员,相似的场景,但这部片子甚至比前作还要出色,还要有趣。-怎么确定我们在共产主义里?-私人财产从未这么美丽过。后资本主义的问题愈加明显。“该怎么办呢?”引用斯大林的话,没有共产主义者的共产主义或许不是个坏主意。

  23. Rafal Poplawski's rating of the film Self-Criticism of a Bourgeois Dog

    This is one of the best approach to Communism in the film art. Movie is really enjoyable, grotesque presentation of people's dream and pursuit of happiness. Julian Radlmaier's movies get better and better and looking forward to seeing more film art to come !
