AUSTERLITZ (Directed by Sergei Loznitsa) bomb
Boring beyond belief. Who wants to watch a half--hour's-worth of tourists traipsing into the gate to take photos with their cell phones? I walked out after 40 minutes. We did not know what spaces or rooms they were taking pictures of. This film could have been riveting given the subject of the Holocaust. Black and white in a film has never been so bland. Screened at RIDM.
