  1. Fabio Osvaldo Carta's rating of the film Faust

  2. MisterColo93's rating of the film Faust

  3. Bernardo Crastes's rating of the film Faust

    Aesthetically unpleasing, with that goddamned glow, desaturated colour and anamorphic shots, and too cryptic for its own good. The story is hard to follow and the characters are not nearly as interesting as Murnau's. So uncaptivating.

  4. Joao Pedro Amorim's rating of the film Faust

  5. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film Faust

  6. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Faust

    Golden Lion at Venice's Film festival. Superb editing and production design. Highly recommended.

  7. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film Faust

  8. Victor Gonzalez's rating of the film Faust

    Sokurov's Faust. The sepia-soft images are here for your indulgement.

  9. Stefan Drees's rating of the film Faust

    Sokurov’s „Faust“ is difficult to appreciate without knowing the other three films of his tetralogy (about Hitler, Lenin and Hirohito) and recognizing this last one as kind of prequel. After watching it in cinema some years ago I gave it a second chance and found many parts very intriguing. I like the references to Murnaus „Faust“ (see especially the beginning) but also the detailed scenario.

  10. Murat Erdem's rating of the film Faust

    Bu kadar deneyselik bazen ıstırap verici olabiliyor. Ne kadar uğraşırsam uğraşayım filme bir türlü giremedim. Edebiyatta yürüyen metin, bazen perdede yürümeyebiliyor. Farklı kodları mevcut çünkü her disiplinin.

  11. William R Clark's rating of the film Faust

    A bodily Faust that comes from a place of discursive claustrophobia, 'theatrical' not in the way you'd expect. Editing department really going all out here to break naturalized spaces into cluttered, abstract, surreal arrangements. Trance-like vibes.

  12. mitkills's rating of the film Faust

    overly stylized in an instagram sort of way, but dreamy and gloomy and occasionally gruesome. the fantastical elements were pleasantly alarming when they came up. sort of felt like a low-key hieronymus bosch painting + melancholia.

  13. Nathan Hopkins's rating of the film Faust

    Perhaps I am merely too unfamiliar with the legend of Faust, or with the work and style of Sokurov, to properly appreciate this film. However, while succeeding in being exceptionally surreal and unsettling, the film failed to grab my interest, or sanity for that matter. While clearly crafted with care, the lack of ability to extract clear meaning from this desaturated picture fills me with a feeling of pretension.

  14. muse_x's rating of the film Faust

    But, seriously. I've got a contract here.

  15. Landen Celano's rating of the film Faust

    The last half hour is what nightmares are made of.

  16. Max Seqgar's rating of the film Faust

    Were all Faust after all... The experience itself was almost Lynchean, but still very Sokurov! Nice!

  17. Mr.Pacha's rating of the film Faust

  18. David R Williams's rating of the film Faust

  19. Kyle Williams's rating of the film Faust

    Absolutely beautiful, with a sharp edge to the throat of every scene: ominous and gruesome, yet full of wonder, amazing how anyone can strike that balance.

  20. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Faust

    Definitely a challenging film. There are bodies in constant motion, though they don't always seem to know where they're going. People spin around each other with a gravitational force. The frame itself lends itself to the claustrophobia that seems self-imposed. All of this can lead to a kind of confusion as to what exactly is going on. Faust's journey is to find what he will sell his soul for.

  21. Ben Loory's rating of the film Faust

    tough going in the beginning-- looked and felt like a bad 70s BBC drama-- but got better as it went, and by the end was actually pretty intriguing. not sure it was worth 2+ hours of my life but hey, it's better than daredevil

  22. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Faust

    I didn't know what to do with the last sequence, but this is still an experience worth having.

  23. kaan ertuz's rating of the film Faust

    Easy than reading but still hard to watch :)

  24. Willyzacc's rating of the film Faust

    Une mise en scène superbe, un travail sur la forme et la lumière assez impressionnant. La découverte : Isolda Dychauk illumine l'écran à toutes ses apparitions..
