I Love Dollars

I ♥ $

Directed by Johan van der Keuken
Netherlands, 1986


In 1984–85, Johan van der Keuken took his camera across the globe, from Amsterdam to New York to Hong Kong, ending in Geneva. The object of his investigation was money, in particular the maniacal drive to accumulate it in the era of Thatcherite/Reaganite neoliberalism.

What are people saying?

  • João Eça's rating of the film I Love Dollars

    Keuken's most complex film, full of metonymical, metaphorical, serialist, rhythmic or chromatic associations, sometimes driving the film to a full conceptual dimension (which is often ambiguous or even abstract). The motif that connects all sequences is money - but what is most interesting in the film isn't money itself but its reflection: on buildings, cities, people, faces, sounds, images and objects of all kinds.
