More Info

Endlich gibt es zu einem Film-Soundtrack auch mal den entsprechenden Film! ZOETROPE ist ein Industrial-Film par excellence, basierend auf KAFKAs In der Strafkolonie sieht man schwarz-weisse & sich berlagernde visionre Traum-Bilder von kalten Maschinen & Rderwerken, Gefngnis, Strafe, psychischer Tortur, Wahnsinn & Katharsis, die perfekt mit den monumentalen noise ambient-Klngen von LUSTMORD und der Stimme des Schicksals-Richters interagieren. Ein kurzer (ca. 15 Min.), aber intensivst bannender Film der in das Zentrum der Ur-Angst blickt.

"Zoetrope is a haunting and explosively surreal film set in an apocalyptic, decaying world. Based on Franz Kafka's In the Penal Colony, a man is imprisoned for an unnamed crime and tortured by a nameless sadistic bureaucrat. As the chilling nightmare unfolds, the prisoner peels away the layers of his own metaphysical existence, inching ever closer to his inescapable fate. Hatched from the fertile imagination of Director Charlie Deaux (System of a Down, Mortiis), Zoetrope's richly complex visuals and dark atmosphere cast a spell of fear and terror far beyond its tightly edited 20-minute length. Deaux's obsessive attention to detail is reflected in every shot of this relentlessly paced rollercoaster ride. It's easy to wonder if he's the bastard son of Lars von Trier, or a lost cousin of the Brothers Quay. The music and sound design for Zoetrope were composed by Lustmord, and compliment the harrowing visuals perfectly. Lustmord, aka Brian Williams, is well known for his film work (Underworld, The Crow, Basketball Diaries, and more) as well as his own releases." NTSC format, Region Free. 16:9 Format.
