Critic Reviews for Workingman's Death

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (8)

This documentary about men and women performing brutal work tasks for next to no money is full of arresting and eloquent images.

There's scant dialogue in Workingman's Death, but little is needed when majestic camera work by Wolfgang Thaler tells the story so well.

Feb 24, 2006 | Rating: 3/4

It's not exactly a good time at the movies, and even as pure education, it's a rather dull film with very little dialogue.

Feb 24, 2006 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Michael Glawogger's glamorized documentary observes laborers from around the world going to hell and back, day after day, year after year, to eke out subsistence livings.

Feb 23, 2006 | Rating: 4/5

Glawogger is an extraordinarily elegant filmmaker with a photographer's eye for striking compositions.

Glawogger's film may be thematically loose-jointed, but Wolfgang Thaler's cinematography is the glue.
