Movie Info

A bizarre fantasy with elements of science fiction and socio/political allegory, Goodbye, 20th Century! opens in the year 2019, where war has left the world barren and devastated. Kuzman (Nikola Ristanovski) has been sentenced to death for blasphemy (the superstitious among his people believe his verbal outbursts may have brought a disease to the community), but he somehow survives his execution and has a series of strange adventures and sexual escapades. Meanwhile in the year 1999, people are celebrating New Year's Eve (to the sounds of Sid Vicious's recording of My Way) as a downcast gentleman in a Santa Claus outfit attends a funeral that degenerates into violence. Goodbye, 20th Century! had its U.S. premiere at the 1999 Cinequest Film Festival in San Jose, California. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

A loud, wild, bloody, virulent explosion of noise and emotion. I loved it!

It's a self-proclaimed fairy tale, but one in which the elements do not mesh to create a single story or lesson, or even, well, amusement.

I don't get it. But I've got the strangest feeling that I don't get it because there's nothing at all to get.

An ambitious film on many different levels, and I can appreciate that, but it rarely succeeds on any of them.
