  • Schwechater

    Schwechater

    ★★★★★

    'As the story goes, Peter Kubelka was commissioned to produce a commercial for Austrian brewery Schwechater. The resultant commercial ended up being a totally irreverent abstraction that featured perhaps several seconds of a couple enjoying a luxury brew. The commercial, of course, never made it to air.'

    ...but it just made it to my list of all time favourites

  • The Ghost

    The Ghost

    ★★★★★

    Das Gespenst (The Ghost), shows Jesus stepping down from his cross, confronting religious stereotypes and cliches, and wandering through the streets with a nun, having sundry surreal experiences. A film that caused a scandal in Germany in the mid-eighties (and in Austria as well - author Gerhard Ruiss went to trial for screening this one, he paid a fine and spent 25 days in prison).
    Blasphemy! 10/10
