Critic Reviews for The Sound of Insects: Record of a Mummy
The narrator's calm recitation quickly progresses from interesting to irritating to oppressive.
Without additional context surrounding its subject's life, sharing the man's final excruciating moments eventually devolves into an exercise in morbidity, an experience considerably more ponderous than profound.
Surprisingly not macabre, this fictionalized record of self-aggrandizement through self-destruction reminds one of Derek Jarman's Blue in its epistolary delivery and its displacement of meaning to that which is never really shown.
Audience Reviews for The Sound of Insects: Record of a Mummy
Maybe there's something to be said about a person who can sit through a vapid recitation of supposedly real diary entries from a man who went into the woods to die of starvation accompanied by useless, uninteresting visuals and come away with nothing but a reinvigorated adoration for big, fat ham sandwiches.
Atmospheric and impressionistic. The mummy-to-be is thoughtful but vague, almost too vague. The secret of success lay in the drama. Yes, you read correctly: drama. Although, how the filmaker manages to extend the "action" as long as he did is a mystery in itself. I think the work is masterful in that it got me to go along for the ride and I was involved, for the most park. One thing that bothers me is the nagging suspicion that this "true" story is a fake after all.
