  2. contact@niklaspersson.com's rating of the film The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers

    It is a very poetic experience, is partly quite disturbing, and quite the sleep pill. I saw this on the Gothenburg International Film Festival in 2015, both me and a friend along with much of the audience seemed to have been dozing off one time or another. There was literally a guy snoring next to us. Prepare with coffee, tea, sugar, etc., or make a short pause, to best experience this beautiful and surreal film!

  4. Davidavich's rating of the film The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers

    Should have been a short film about 21 minutes. Then I would give it 5 stars. Concept is nice - different take on making-of documentary, but editing is lacking.

  5. Funda Can Çuvalcı's rating of the film The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers

    After this film, I will be hesitant to watch Locarno award winners.

  6. msmichel's rating of the film The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers

    What starts as a behind the scenes look at a film being shot in the Atlas mountains (Oliver Laxe's "mimosas") evolves into a strange adaptation of a Paul Bowles story in this experimental work from director Ben Rivers. Both beautiful and macabre this is a work both radical and enthralling. Well planned and full of beautiful moments with pristine camerawork by the director himself. Not for every taste but should be.

    "It looks rough and shitty because we're showing you the dark and unglamorous underbelly of film-making." No mate, it's just a rough and shitty flick. Get over yourself.

    Well, that got weird, but, at least they recycle.

  9. turnerBroadcast p3Dr0's rating of the film The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers

    There are scenes from this movie that rebuild the Chien Andalou. Mind blowing. Tour de force.

    So this is how people become Tusken Raiders.

  11. David R Williams's rating of the film The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers

    I've been reading quite a bit about this one over the past few months and really looking forward to seeing if it was as fucked up as claimed...I am happy to say that it is...and then some.

  12. Samuel Wells's rating of the film The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers

    The film certainly fulfills the promise of non traditional narrative structures. It is a winding plot, that tells itself from several angles from the beginning. It is also not afraid to slow down and observe the tangents, giving each moment as much weight as the next. Though this philosophy is refreshing, it made the plot difficult to follow at times. Certainly not a film for most, but it still has its charm.

    rivers è seriamente passato in due anni da a spell to ward of the darkness a questo?

  14. Crabnebula1914@aol.com's rating of the film The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers

    Not the "easiest" film, but rewarding, it was actually harder to track it down, thanks for providing us with this title!

  16. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers

    From 42nd min unparalleled violence, an hallucinated nightmare. The dazzling heat of the sun vs the iced darkness of men. Our civilization & theirs cant merge, Islam doesnt compromise, it enslaves. = Dès la 42ème min 1 violence inégalée, 1 cauchemar halluciné. La chaleur éblouissante du soleil face à la noirceur glacée des hommes. Notre civilisation & la leur ne peuvent fusionner, l'islam ne transige pas, il asservit

    Oliver, the Wrath of Filmmaking.

  19. Wyatt's rating of the film The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers

    A film with filled with interesting visuals and a look into a different culture of the world. That surrounds a plot of a man wanting to make a film, who ends up getting enslaved, forced to dance, and to wear a suit covered in tin can lids.

  20. Kevin's rating of the film The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers

    A disciple of Paul Bowles for a period of time a decade or longer back looks at the journalists who are taken and killed by IS as the precise meaning of his work. Put another way, the failure to show the human condition, the breakdown of the individual’s humanity in the film, marginalize Bowles in an unacceptable way. I think Bowles is better read in the same way Under the Volcano is better read.

  21. Renton47's rating of the film The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers

    There is a humorous literal reading in the director losing his way, his voice, and then finding a new audience as the 'king of can(Ne)s', but Rivers is surely not interested in such petty aphorisms. The 16mm, especially projected, is sun-soaked beauty, and his colonialist fable is a violent dream to be consumed in. No one does metal more justice, especially here as a spell to conjure the darkness.

  22. Eric Sherwood's rating of the film The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers

    the first 1/3 was perfect.

  23. affasf's rating of the film The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers

    Sweet baby Jesus, how bad was that? The backstage idea lamed even further the pretentious and tasteless carmina burana (?) evaluation of ethnographic indiscretion (first world condescending pity?). That modern joker is western cinema... rattling away.

  24. Jason's rating of the film The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers

    Rivers has collected, in the manner of a wanderer or sage or both, a series of images climaxing w/ one which speaks for all of them, as well as the undertaking itself. Cribbing from Paul Bowles (and certainly reflecting a degree of self-criticism), Rivers is looking at those who go into the heart of darkness in search of treasures or transcendence. There is a kind or sham tourism that leads to a destiny in indignity.
