  1. Adam Whybray's rating of the film Ears, Nose and Throat

    3.2 stars. On a computer at home did not feel like the ideal viewing conditions for this intriguing short. I would rather have watched it in a gallery space or more clinical setting. While it may seem like Everson is not doing very much, there is a great skill in choosing the right participant. Brooks has such a communicative face and way of recounting her story that you are drawn in, while still estranged.

  2. internisus's rating of the film Ears, Nose and Throat

    That the woman recounts this story during an unrelated exam suggests how the experience has remained with her, as if it is still happening. The tones of the hearing test coincide with the cuts of the incident footage on the street, communicating it as flashes of memory. The doctor's evaluation of her capacity to hear and speak resonates with her role as a witness. This is a subtle, powerful approach to documentary.

  3. Isaac's rating of the film Ears, Nose and Throat

    Uma quietude e contemplação belíssimas, apesar da história de violência masculina relatada. Se trata de uma interposição dos traumas físicos que experiências traumáticas podem gerar, e também da confiabilidade do testemunho questionada, ainda que a experiência seja forte e visceral. A direção é muito boa.

  4. Janushka's rating of the film Ears, Nose and Throat

    It made a big difference to me when I discovered that DeCarrio Antwan Couley, the young man whose 2010 murder is being described by Shadeena Brooks who witnessed it, was the son of Kevin Jerome Everson...

  6. Sophie Schwarz's rating of the film Ears, Nose and Throat

    Focused meditation on the capacity of speech - by choice and also by anatomical demand - the duties and choices around vocal/aural communication. patient images, heavy monologue, and selected sound. Watch twice

  7. tubbssw's rating of the film Ears, Nose and Throat

  8. El Biffo's rating of the film Ears, Nose and Throat

    Authentic, eloquent, and concise.

  9. natachaqueiros's rating of the film Ears, Nose and Throat

  10. JanP's rating of the film Ears, Nose and Throat

    Liked the beeps and the fireflies together. An intimate setting enables her to relate a traumatic event to a person whose only comments were on her uneven vocal chords. A neat film.

  11. Carlos Pineda's rating of the film Ears, Nose and Throat

    El lenguaje audiovisual en lo más comercial es redundante: se muestra aquello que se nombra. En este caso, Kevin Jerome Everson opta por imágenes con un pito que luego sabremos que puede corresponder a un examen auditivo y cuando pasamos al examen que da nombre al corto, el discurso (no emitido en directo) habla de un asesinato, con cierta negligencia de un agente de policía. Esa es exploración audiovisual.

  12. Sorin's rating of the film Ears, Nose and Throat

    A little boring documentary

  13. Cependant's rating of the film Ears, Nose and Throat

  14. Zach Kipple's rating of the film Ears, Nose and Throat

    It wasn't clear why she was telling the story of what happened during her ear, nose and throat physical but the story she told was entertaining. The shot of he determining which ear the beep is in is a strange story telling aspect.

  15. darioscha's rating of the film Ears, Nose and Throat

    Sobre el impacto del trauma en el cuerpo humano. Intersecciones entre imágenes que evocan y el documento de la narración directa.

  16. reece's rating of the film Ears, Nose and Throat

    an incredible personal film on the death of a son.

  17. McOpinionated's rating of the film Ears, Nose and Throat

    I didn’t get the point of this without reading elsewhere that the ENT exam seems to be a necessary part of witness reliability test. This is radio (good radio at that), not cinema.

  18. Miels Clifton's rating of the film Ears, Nose and Throat

    I feel a certain serenity follows the narrative of this film. While Shadeena recounts a horrific event she's undergoing an examination that reveals some troubling news. It seems that way, at least. As if the violence that took place is diminished somehow, but I don't think so. Life doesn't stop for anyone. Every year those fireflies will come out during the summer, you're just not always ready for it.

  19. dionysus67's rating of the film Ears, Nose and Throat

    Moderately engaging, mainly through the narration of the violent incident than through anything else. The last glance on the camera rescues this short from a being relegated to a totally uncinematic endeavor (the static camera is punctuated by a somewhat cinematic low-angle shot of a lampost). Yet, the interesting dimensions about phsyiology, trauma and society evaporate in the haziness of film form. Disappointed.

  20. lesminho's rating of the film Ears, Nose and Throat

    2/10 Another storytelling gem from the Jose Mourinho of filmmaking. Later edit: After rating it, this is what MUBI sends me by e-mail: "Loved Ears, Nose and Throat? Pick 3 friends and we’ll send them a free 7 day membership so they can watch it too".

  21. Alfredo Giusi's rating of the film Ears, Nose and Throat

    7,5/10 La carne - database fisico e pulsante di immagini e narrazioni - si fonde all’astratto reame del pensiero. Il corpo umano, in continua metamorfosi, è comunicazione, esattamente come il cinema, qui elevato a linguaggio supremo e preferenziale. Siamo arte ed il cinema lo è con noi. Entrambi costretti a seguire un ritmo frenetico, obbligati a raccontare e vivere storie che amiamo e odiamo disperatamente.

  22. Ric O's rating of the film Ears, Nose and Throat

    just didn't get it the director's intention

  23. Vulgar Hiccups's rating of the film Ears, Nose and Throat

    Incredible use of sound and imagery. Almost hypnotizing to watch.

  24. Tyler Tripp's rating of the film Ears, Nose and Throat

    Everson's cross-cut vision of Shadeena Brook's retelling of a traumatic experience is an unnerving dive into the heart of trauma and it's everlasting effects on the human body. By interlacing Brook's v.o. of her traumatic tale over the video of her getting a physical examination at the doctor, Everson creates a poignant visual dichotomy that works well in highlighting the deep-rooted effects that trauma can lay.
