Critic Reviews for This Our Still Life
'This Our Still Life' is Kötting's attempt to make sense of their life and the footage he has shot in this bolthole on various cameras and formats over the years.
It's a highly personal, often obscure picture, structured around the four seasons, with poignant images, speeches on the soundtrack and a superimposed, somewhat portentous text in caps.
