  • José Neves's rating of the film Diary

    Long before Farocki directed "By Comparison," Keuken also investigated the discrepancies between the technologized world, called civilized, and the less technological world, called uncivilized, although in different ways: while the German director rationalized an editing by contrast, the "flying Dutchman" reveals, discusses and criticizes the differences, returning to the defeated world its fair identity.
