The Cremator 1969 ★★★★★ Rewatched Sep 02, 2020. Has the exact feeling one would expect from a movie that was locked in a vault for 20 years. Made by fans in Auckland, New Zealand. Rudolf Hrusísnsky is intimidatingly perfect in every sharp corner of his role and it’s one of the most impressively consistent performances I’ve seen. This is the blessed spot where we met 17 years ago. Editing is really well done and Rudolf Hrušínsky’s noteworthy performance is so remarkably unnerving every second he’s on the screen so good job. The way this film portrays the nazi ideals, the seductive nature of its recruitment, how it feeds on the naive and narcissistic, and how it absolutely rots a human being with delusion and psychopathy from the inside is far more unique and effective than any other World War II era film I’ve seen before. Çekimler çok çok iyi, özellikle transitionlar mükemmeldi. Block or Report. On the other hand, Fatface works in a crematorium. Even Kopfrkingl’s easy seduction, whose absurdly abbreviated phrasing suggests a deliberate comment, doesn’t seem that unbelievable. You romanticize and aggrandize yourself, but like all romantics you’re just a blockhead tool waiting... longing... to be told you're important. Only the leopard is new. Show All… More details at There was a point where Mr. Kopfrkingl has just bought a painting and is deciding on where he should hang it which is translated through a quick montage which I personally quite liked. to be a individual involved in a process of constant reflection and vociferation of his thoughts during the film, the cremator is absolutely influenced by the male loud…, "No one comes back to life after 75 minutes in the furnace.". Fascism returns as "paradise". Ideology is an imperious master, a jealous god.…, Review by Darren Carver-Balsiger ★★★★½ 6, The Cremator begins quirkily, with odd subject matter and fast edits. As a cremator, the handling of dead folk is his daily bread and butter. I find it hard to fathom a film as stylish and mesmerizing as this is 45 years old! Add a review? The Cremator 1969 ★★★½ . Second, several dream sequences are overlaid on top of the narrative happening in real life, which shows the delusions behind the protagonist's line of thinking in his quest to liberate souls. it could even be assured that he does not fully understand his programmatic objectives. Watched I always have the feeling that I do so little for you. Fruit Flies return as art pieces. Noah’s films. A man who believes cremation relieves a burden is the lead character, a rather strange setup. Are you ready…, Juan-Carlos Arias 350 films 1,714 40 Edit. Haunting performances and music with camerawork and editing that are just so surreal and so unique in itself that make ‘The Cremator’ a fantastic horror movie. For instance, the main character will be in a conversation with someone. It’s one of those films that’s so deliriously creative and intelligent and entertaining that to talk about how good it is feels utterly banal. To hopefully,…. An alien life form that is a huge ball of living matter invades earth, and replenishes itself by absorbing people. There are a few interesting stylistic decisions. Those Czechs really know how to make a film. The cinematography is as captivating as the film is deliciously macabre! To my knowledge this is also the only Holocaust related film made by a survivor too which just gives it an even more eerie feeling. The Cremator is a two-layered experience of immense depth, let alone one of the counted films in history that can be called "ahead of its time". If you’re a handsy repressed smug conformist with no original thoughts yet love to hear yourself talk, you’re probably a secret fascist just waiting to be given permission by an authority figure to murder. I recall reading that Herz was a Jewish concentration camp survivor, and that he had a heavy hand in writing the screenplay for the film's adaptation of the novel. Noah is using Letterboxd to share film reviews and lists with friends. Do you love all types of movies? Some crematoria also incorporate a columbarium, a place for interring cremation ashes. It was obviously way ahead of its time! I can handle the truth. With some of the most astounding and impressive cinematography and editing I've ever seen, it culminates into a frighteningly realistic portrayal of a madman, terrifying in its presentation of the slow descent into the rise of fascism and self-delusion. Toprağa daha çabuk karışan biri daha çabuk özgürleşmiş, daha çabuk dönüşümünü gerçekleştirmiş, daha çabuk aydınlanmış, daha çabuk yeni bedenine girmiş ve daha çabuk *vücut bulmuş olur. No wonder, really—any film as deliriously inventive and insightful as The Cremator is bound to remain fresh in perpetuity, constantly renewed by the unfortunately cyclical circumstances of politics and human nature and eternally enshrined by the few inviolable measures of what constitutes great cinema. The Cremator exists in a world of disease and darkness and bodies, with the vices of drugs and prostitutes, and the evils of fascism…. The chilling lead performance from Rudolf Hrušínský is outstanding, an immediately hateable character whose ultimate descent into bigoted madness seems entirely inevitable right from the start.

Hooptober 4.0 - 2017 - Film #31 Kopfrkingl, hereafter to be referred to as Fatface, has an attitude towards death and the human body far different from my own. As unsettlingly horrendous as it is hilarious, The Cremator lives up to every bit of hype and more. The Cremator's descent into fanatic nazism is the inevitable conclusion of his small minded, self absorbed idiocy. Quema el sufriren su templo de éter,jaula de muerte. The Cremator 1969 ★★★★ 26 Oct, 2020 Remobo’s review published on Letterboxd: "No one comes back to life after 75 minutes in the furnace." Coal and coke were used until the early 1960s. Shot like a hazy dream, it follows Rudolf Hrusinsky as the titular crematorium worker as he gives what is essentially a movie long monologue about his own twisted spirituality, actions, and slowly building madness/mania. © Letterboxd Limited. For me the mere thought of a corpse is both frightening and downright disturbing. Despite the fact that he dominates the film utterly, there's still somehow space for a surprisingly large cast of supporting characters who are much more fleshed out than seems possible. Mr. Kopfrkingl enjoys his job at a crematorium in Czechoslovakia in the late 1930s. Acı ortadan kaldırmamız ya da hafifletmemiz gereken bir kötülüktür. For me the mere thought of a corpse is both frightening and downright disturbing. The more I think about it, the more I think this is a very twisted horror-comedy masterpiece of the darkest kind. Modern crematoria contain at least one cremator (also known as a crematory, retort or cremation chamber), a purpose-built furnace. He likes reading the Tibetan book of the dead, and espouses the view that cremation relieves earthly suffering. The Cremator. Lukan’s review published on Letterboxd: This review may contain spoilers. The Cremator 1969 ★★★★★ 29 Jul, 2020 KillGoldfish’s review published on Letterboxd: What an amazing movie. That's all I'm going to say about the story, as knowing as little as possible going in will only benefit you. As a cremator, the handling of dead folk is his daily bread and butter. It will cut to a closeup of his face as he speaks a response, but then the camera pulls back to reveal that we're already in a new scene in a new location with different characters. Haunting surreal psychological chiller about a man whom like Hitler had grandiose delusions of grandeur and visions of creating a better world via their own warped beliefs and ideologies! On the other hand, Fatface works in a crematorium. For when you want to wallow in despair. Film ilk 10 dakikasından bana kaliteli olduğunu hissettirdi. A deranged megalomaniac living by principles of abstinence, tidiness, and general gentlemanlike conduct, and unflinching in his condescension, this is a character study into the psyche of a Nazi mindset. To my knowledge this is also the only Holocaust related film made by a survivor too which just gives it an even more eerie feeling. First it's carp, then it's your neighbor and co-workers...then it's your wife and children. 1969 But at its core it's a horror movie about the deepest evils of which humans are capable, with a protagonist that would make Hannibal Lecter squirm. An alien life form that is a huge ball of living matter invades earth, and replenishes itself by absorbing people. Mobile site. i can’t put into words just how smartly it handles the themes of ideology and fanaticism. Friends return as enemies. What I will talk about is how incredibly unique this film is. He likes reading the Tibetan book of the dead, and espouses the view that cremation relieves earthly suffering. Meanwhile, in Prague, word of this foothold reaches a quirky cremator with delusions of his own, who is obsessed with the Tibetan Book of the Dead and with the idea of cremation as "release from suffering". Aaron Hodgetts’s review published on Letterboxd: FILM #15 OF MY SUMMER 100: So fucking surreal and chilling, from the sound design to the sublime editing and cinematography, every technical aspect is utilised expertly to create a really unique and unsettling atmosphere. but that does not necessarily mean that he is able to apprehend ideas with the conviction of a parishioner, rather than as, for example, a mechanism of social ascent within a reality with pre-established social values. This review may contain spoilers. Kind nature long ago relieved the other of his shackles. Touching a corpse would send a shudder all the way up and down my spine, whereas for Fatface it is as benign as touching the keyboard and mouse I tap away at all day long. And that's just one of many cinematographic tricks this movie has up its sleeve.

On a scale between 1 and 10 he had a creep factor of 1000! With Maria De Aragon, Marvin Howard, Eric Allison, Eric Sinclair. I've never seen anything like this. The previous poster for The Cremator on this app resembled a mid 2000s Hip Hop Album cover than a late 60s Czech New Wave film so I’m glad they updated that. It's definitely a slow burn (maybe, pun intended) but I think that the monologue and the way Kopfrkingl acts as a patriarch and social chameleon is really cool to watch on screen. Modern cremator fuels include oil, natural gas, propane, and, in Hong Kong, coal gas. It centers around a man named Karel Kopfrkingl who is a well-to-do, amoral mortician who has a disturbing fascination with the macabre. His delicate mannerisms and calm speaking voice make the underlying evil even more poignant. It's shot in a style that, truly, I've never exactly seen before. There is no review for this diary entry. The Cremator 1969 ★★★★½ . Meanwhile a portrait of Nicaraguan President Emiliano Chamorro Vargas looks on from the background; a piece of tape over his name with "Louis Marin" written on it. Set on the eve of World War Two, in Czechoslovakia, this man who burns bodies becomes a metaphor for the greatest evil. We judge and criticize others, rebuke them. [citation needed] Modern cremators automatically monitor their interior to tell when the cremation process is complete and have a spyhole so that an operator can see inside. At first the film is about the loss of Czech identity, but soon it becomes about a path towards a nationalist ideology and the purity of bloodlines. However, the genius of The Cremator is the shock when you realise where this dark tale is headed. It's no exaggeration when I say he's one of the most fascinating horror characters of all time. He has one of those faces that can look innocent and charming - almost boyish - one second, and then stunningly sinister the next. The presence of this intellectual personage is so imposing, that the rest of the characters around him…. Director Juraj Herz was a survivor of Ravensbrück concentration camp as a child and you can see how that personal experience gave him bold proprietary permission to mock and explore this horrifying subject to such great effect. This is very much underscored in the film when I watched in horror as he ran his comb through…. Set on the eve of World War Two, in Czechoslovakia, this man who burns bodies becomes a metaphor for the greatest evil. Into the crematorium it goes. Stop changing the posters for shit it's fucking gross, not to imply this one is bad but that doesn't make it less jarring. There's a tinge of French New Wave-iness to it, but it's mixed with some of the most interesting editing techniques I've seen. This is a stunning movie with lots of layers to peel away.

Viewed with the Amazing Edith’s *Collab Film Group*.Kopfrkingl: My sweet. ‪Of all of the films from the Czech New Wave that I’ve seen (which is a few), The Cremator is the first with its weird twists of dark comedy and horror. Hunter Price’s review published on Letterboxd: I mean this might one of the most pitch black comedies I have ever seen and so eccentrically done, too. A bizarre foreign film that owes a great debt to Rudolf Hrusínský whom played the deranged megalomaniac Karl Kopfrkingl! The Cremator is a 1969 Czechoslovakian film about a suave, sophisticated cremator in the 1930s who thinks death is the perfect remedy for one's pain and suffering. Combined with these stylistic arrangements is a profoundly important political dimension to the film - the protagonist Kropfrinkl is advised to sign a declaration of his Aryanhood to avoid discrimination himself. And like any real masterpiece, it feels at once historic—one of, if not the, peak achievements of the Czech New Wave—and ridiculously contemporary. His eerie performance was absolutely riveting! © Letterboxd Limited. The main character may very well be the most frightening psychopath outside of horror films.

Oyunculuklar da bir o kadar güzeldi.Bir cenaze yakıcısının nasyonal sosyalizmin etkisiyle geçirdiği düşünsel değişimi izliyoruz. An exquisite evisceration of fascism, desire and all things political, the film was hidden in the vaults of FAMU (the Prague Film Academy) as an agricultural film (along with many others) after the Soviet tanks rolled in. It was obviously way ahead of its time! Report this film. It’s not entirely a dark comedy, most definitely not a horror film, and I saw a Tik Tok comparing it to The Shining, so I was under a completely different impression than what I got. Watched by Noah.

In many countries, crematoria contain facilities for funeral ceremonies, such as a chapel. Karel speaks of the theory, learned from his Tibetan Book of the Dead, about the carp being prepared for lunch coming back as another animal to be eaten at another lunch time. - as fear, blind alliances, and misplaced altruism have corroded and reshaped our society into something festering and ugly and unrecognizable.
