Moloch (Molokh) Reviews

  • May 02, 2018

    Assistir "Moloch" foi como passar uma hora e meia na frente de uma TV desligada. O diretor do fantástico "Arca Russa" transformou um tema supostamente interessante (a intimidade de Adolf Hitler e sua amante Eva) em um trabalho enfadonho, vazio e pretensioso. Pelo menos as atuações são decentes.

    A duller companion to Sokurov's film about Emperor Hirohito. The difference is that Hitler is thoroughly unlikable and the movie didn't take place at an historic crossroads.

    Another film about the inner arenas of Hitler's life full of photographic and character-quirky indulgence that adds no real new understanding or distinction to the story.

    Una originale tratto biografico di Adolf Hitler circondato da Eva Braun e dai suoi uomini più fedeli e dipinto con le sue stranezze e le sue ipocondrie. Sokurov qui è molto bravo a giocare con gli ambienti esterni e le luci degli interni per descrivere il contorto dittatore tedesco. Bravo Leonid Mozgonvoy.

    Clumsy, strident, stultifying. Why are so many films about dictators so over-the-top? A little subtlety would convery their evil so much better.

    Una maravilla cargada de emociones y paradojas que muestran los multiples personajes que fue Hitler. La fuerza y el desdà (C)n de Eva ante el dictador pareciera iluminar los actos de soberbia y despotismo hasta llevarlos a el punto más humano posible.

    detetable man...woman with very poor judgement...interesting movie. "moloch", means animal sacrifice, in Hebrew.

    Berghof apparait comme un château perdu dans les montagnes et visité uniquement par la brume, pourtant Adolf, Josef, Magda et Martin viennent y retrouver Eva, improbable nymphe gardienne des lieux. Berghof est au dessus du monde et la guerre, rien n'y filtre et le délire de ses occupants s'y condense dans une atmosphère étouffante où la légèreté des habitants y est obscène, effrayante, tout en étant quasiment ignorée par les SS réglés comme des machines qui surveillent les lieux. On sent l'ombre de Tarkovski dans les couloirs glacés et comme on s'y attendait on a droit à ce traitement typiquement russe de l'horreur, ce mélange de distance puis de plongée dans le cœur de la bête avec cette pellicule sale où grouille vaguement quelque chose.

    'For many modern people, it seems at least strange that individual, inner initiatives could serve as motivation for historical acts, or acts that become a part of the history. It means that most historical events didn’t happen because certain political figures felt themselves political figures and acted according to the interests of society, state, people, et cetera. The reasons for most of those acts are intimate, individual, very private urges and motives that have nothing to do with either the history of the country or the history of his people, or any global process or project.' (from 'The Making of Moloch - An interview with the director')
