Audience Reviews for Moloch (Molokh)
Moloch is not subtle. It simply doesn't illuminate. Offering no insight at all on the life and times of the most hated man in the history of the world, or even his ill-fated lover, the movie simply has nothing to offer but some attractive images and a few interesting scenes. Languor is a powerful force in the cinema, but when used to no effect, it can absolutely obliterate a film. As I see it, Moloch didn't get out so lucky. After this and Russian Ark, I think I'll be staying away from Alexander Sokurov for a while. The only good I see in his filmmaking is talent in set design and cinematography. For him to sit there with his thumb up his ass and babble about how Eva Braun was the only person in Germany with the right idea seems almost insulting.
