Critic Reviews for Film Ist. a Girl & a Gun

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (1)

  • Deutsch raises the art of found footage assembly to stunning heights. The soundscape, ranging from bouncy electronica to throat singing, is a masterpiece in its own right.

  • Part of the pleasure of the first sections is their relative straightforwardness, particularly "1-6," which, through artfully edited visual splendors - a talking skeleton, a walking cat, a spinning record - creates a graceful meditation on cinema as motio

    December 4, 2009 | Rating: 4/5
  • Film Ist. a Girl & a Gun is not subtle, but its literalism -- which refines the avant-primitivism of older Viennese artists -- is its strength.

    December 2, 2009 | Full Review…
  • Between borrowed scenes of vintage melodramas, Kinsey Institute research and rarer-than-rare archival treasures, a loose story of original sin insinuates itself into your subsconscious.

    December 2, 2009 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A bloated hybrid of graduate-level cinema studies and rudimentary psychology.

    November 30, 2009 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Using clips mostly from obscure, silent, and often explicit films, along with quotes by Plato, Hesiod, and Sappho, Deutsch constructs his own unique history of love, lust, desire, and violence on the silver screen.

  • Gustav Deutsch's kaleidoscopic interpretation of Jean-Luc Godard's oft-quoted appraisal of cinema - "All you need is a girl and a gun" - makes for intriguing, confounding and confronting cinema.
