A brilliant formalist, Loznitsa likes to turn his camera on crowds in motion, turning each sequence into a collective indictment.
Donbass is a flawed, but vivid achievement.
A scathing portrait of a society where human interaction has descended to a level of barbarity more in keeping with late antiquity than the so-called contemporary civilized world.
Powerful if ultimately enervating...
Despite its political bite, there's an emptiness to Donbass.
Shrewdly targets several dimensions...utilized to punish Ukraine...Extraordinarily canny in showing how...history is frequently re-written and "news" is scripted.
Like it or not, you won't see another war film like it this year.
This one plays as a sometimes fevered and typically unreliable series of near-sketches of daily life in Donbass, with the tone veering from ferocious anger, to absurdist humour... the viewer is left to make sense of it all.
The pacing is deliberate but this cool approach serves only to magnify the distressing insights into a dangerous world in which lawless fanatics have assumed control.
In its own absurdist way, it does shed some light on just what the war did to the lives - and sensibilities - of civilians caught up in the nightmare.
Ukrainian filmmaker Sergei Loznitsa couches his bleak humour in documentary-like settings to create an environment that is unsettling and increasingly warped by its own logic.
The film's aim is true: no one's immune from the conflict and the breakdown of the state.
