This is my new documentary film about beatmaker Nik Dean who creates the world‘s biggest songs for Travis Scott, Jack Harlow & 21 Savage out of his childhood bedroom in a social housing block in Vienna, Austria.

It also has a funny cameo with exclusive footage of one of my childhood heros, Timbaland.
This was really dreadful and I loved it. Broken personalities searching for escapism in fast food entertainment, self destructive behavior that ripples through every generation and the connection of Schlager music to the supressed guilt and trauma of post WW2 europe is definetly a bold mood board.
As always with Seidl this is a peek into another world that I otherwise wouldn‘t know about. I felt extremely miserable afterwards but kinda also really enjoyed watching it.
Right now I feel like I had goosebumps on the inside of my body for 2 hours straight.
A crazy, weird, disturbing american horror movie. Full of audiovisual suprises. Some of the best surround sound I‘ve heard in a long time.
The final scene is like ahhh I don‘t even wanna say anything about it it‘s just so good.
