Critic Reviews for Workingman's Death
This documentary about men and women performing brutal work tasks for next to no money is full of arresting and eloquent images.
There's scant dialogue in Workingman's Death, but little is needed when majestic camera work by Wolfgang Thaler tells the story so well.
It's not exactly a good time at the movies, and even as pure education, it's a rather dull film with very little dialogue.
Michael Glawogger's glamorized documentary observes laborers from around the world going to hell and back, day after day, year after year, to eke out subsistence livings.
Glawogger is an extraordinarily elegant filmmaker with a photographer's eye for striking compositions.
