Ratings & Reviews

  1. Gioele's rating of the film Factory

  2. Jason's rating of the film Factory

    More hypnotic time-travel (into the present) from Loznitsa, a master to whom I have come woefully late.

  3. captainfez's rating of the film Factory

    Work Is Grim: the short film.

  4. Federico's rating of the film Factory

    A silent portrait of workers doing their job, women and men. Silent but not aloof.

  5. Funda Can Çuvalcı's rating of the film Factory

    What a dehumanizing job to do...It reminded of Chaplin's The Modern Times, which was a satire on the dehumanizing effects of mass production in the beginning of 20th century. However, this film is a documentary and made in 21st century.

  6. Bartosz Pergół's rating of the film Factory

    Memorably reaches to the topics of work and production. Tries to get to the essence of humanity carefully observing people, which are on it's very edge. Beautiful in it's brutality and lyrical - without a word or an artist's presence.

  7. fearraigh's rating of the film Factory

    It's not quite as enthralling as Pere Portabella's similar Miró Forja, but Loznitsa's look at the daly working of a foundry has an incantatory hypnosis. Notable for the production values being more polished than his usual work.

  8. Pill Yun's rating of the film Factory

    This is kinda film you choose as a starter of the weekend night cinema orgy, and then end up realizing you need to sleep right as possible. I really liked the slow heavy locomotion of machines and people. Red-green shades too. Cinematography was nice. There's always something mesmerizing about repetitive hand-work and metal noises.

  9. OGH's rating of the film Factory

    Une usine, des hommes et des femmes... Un travail bête et répétitif... Des belles images en couleur contrairement à d'autres documentaires de Loznitsa... Mais le gris des machines, des matières et des automatismes...

  10. ysbil's rating of the film Factory

    Beautiful chromatic tone and texture. Minutely adjusted frames and depths of field. I'm particularly impressed by the women workers at the end of the film. Strangely, their turbans and clothes remind me of Vermeer. Their vivid colours stand out from the monotonous background, seem to beg for a fair share of respect.

  11. DrFirestone's rating of the film Factory

    Amazing, how this rather uninspiring, monotonous setting reveals so many layers, evokes different emotions, thoughts... It is hypnotic, and strikes us how the people became reduced to mindless drones, disposable extensions of the machinery... Beautiful cinematography, especially framing and lighting, interesting use of sound.

  12. Liliya Ivanova's rating of the film Factory

    The colors as a contrast to the monotonous everyday life in a factory. No talk, only the sounds from the machines. Waking up thoughts about the western culture and its values. The hardworking people are captured in such an expressive way, in a beautified environment, which has it lost its glory behind the fight for surviving.

  14. Kaonashiii's rating of the film Factory

  15. weinbrandbabsi's rating of the film Factory

    this is something I have been yearning for for a long time without being aware.

  16. The Heff's rating of the film Factory

    From nature to industrial...amazing it...highly recommended.

  17. luminous's rating of the film Factory

    superb cinematography - many shots remind me of the Dutch painters

  18. FISCHER's rating of the film Factory

    Un aperçu sidérant de la prétendue puissance économique de la Russie, dans un décor industriel famélique et nauséeux, issu d'une vision industrielle datant du 19e siècle où les ouvriers sont asservis comme des esclaves modernes et soumis...

  19. lou.'s rating of the film Factory

    Should have been part of the 'Work in Motion' video-art exhibit @ MAST.Bologna in dialogue w/ Chen Chieh-jen's Factory (2003).

  20. Cou Yar's rating of the film Factory

    En une succession de (beaux) plans fixes, le réalisateur nous donne à voir la vacuité du travail à la chaîne. Les corps sont las, les regards vides, aussi bien du côté des hommes que des femmes. La bande-son restitue les moindres modulations de ce maelström angoissant et désenchanté.

  21. BUTTAUD's rating of the film Factory

    The life of many. Men and machine. Speaks by itself.

  22. Jakub Kubica's rating of the film Factory

    It reminds me one of the old visionaries which were predicting that in the future people wouldn't be needed in factories anymore and to save the society they will keep working without any impact on the production just to keep the unemployment low and keep people busy because all the work is easily done by robots instead. It is of course rather humorous vision but I could find some associations with it in the film.

  23. anatoli's rating of the film Factory

  24. Sarah Pietsch's rating of the film Factory

    Beautifully shot. Fascinating for us viewers, very tedious for the people who are doing this day in, day out. Looks like it could have been made in Victorian times rather than the 21st century, other than the clothing.
