I'm in CT so I can't make the screening but I have ordered my copy from Amazon so I am awating the release.

After staying in the Schindler designed Roth house in Studio City many weeks ago, I look forward to revisiting the place.

film review

Postby losfeliz » Tue Apr 08, 2008 4:27 pm

Buyer beware! This film is an extremely beautiful visual tour of Schindler homes created in a rigorous "filmed coffee table book" manner. There is no plot or script; it is in essence a silent movie comprised of rotating shots of amazing homes. There is no bio-pic, there is no background, there is no context or commentary. It is just a highly rigorous, visually rich compendium of home photography. A pretty sterile outing.

Even though the homes do speak strongly for themselves, I would have welcomed a few other voices. I found the film a tough slog. I believe others in the audience did too.

Viva Rudolph Schindler! Debra L.

Yeah, I know the format. I saw his earlier film, "Goff in the Desert" which was a similar outing with Bruce Goff's work. In this case, I am looking forward to seeing some of Schindler's designs I haven't seen before or more extensive interior shots of those I know. Clearly, this film is not for everyone's tastes (but then again, I can't imagine spending an hour watching "Dancing with the Stars" so I guess it all evens out in the end.

No most of it is just long slow shots of architectural details, with little or no furniture as far as I remember... But I do remember a Nelson bubble lamp (saucer) swinging silently in the wind from an open window.

The film is worth watching, in my opinion...
