Movie Reviews

Review by Phil Hall - FilmThreat
Andreas Troeger | New York | 03/06/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Be forewarned: Andreas Troeger's documentary "Kill the Artist," an examination on extreme art, is not for the squeamish. The film is packed with drawings, photographs, film footage and video clips of performance art that shreds all known concepts of good taste - torture, mutilation, and scatological humiliation are part for the course here.

Included in the mix is artist Mark Diana (who was arrested and briefly jailed in Florida in 1994 for creating obscene comic books), filmmakers Richard Kern and Jörg Buttgereit, and the self-described "sadist" known as The Baroness. They are represented with plenty of graphic examples of their respective work. There is also a clip from a film called "The Woman on the Door" that purportedly shows a woman dying during a rough bondage sex session. Kill The Artist"
