  1. dionysus67's rating of the film The Shepherds of Calamity | Thanos and Despina

    Rarely has cinematic vision captured with such ethnographic and ceremonial savagery the oppression of multiple social structures. This pastoral symphony of evil as the master-slave dialectic is doubled at every turn and catapults the tragicomic couple to 'freedom' is told in visceral, cerebral and highly metonymic means, rendering with untold audacity and skill the plight of a colonized country an orderly disorder!

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film The Shepherds of Calamity | Thanos and Despina

    Bouleversant drame social et humain porté par une éblouissante mise en scène... www.cinefiches.com

  3. José Neves's rating of the film The Shepherds of Calamity | Thanos and Despina

    In the previous film, from a Genet's play, the ritualization and the extreme of suicidal acts found a proposal of hysterization that this one spreads through more characters and spaces but maintains, though with much more rigor, the same intention of giving body to a Greek tragedy, in the etymological sense of the term. Fact achieved. Ironically, a character is called Pericles, being his opposite.

  4. Robert Orlowski's rating of the film The Shepherds of Calamity | Thanos and Despina

    Muddle a few sprigs of Pasolini with a few slices of Buñuel, fill glass with ouzo, shake.
