"The Zone of Interest (Jonathan Glazer, 2023)"


          

Saw this shit Tuesday morning.

Considering the week the Middle East has had, it is chilling to watch something like this.

Very experimental. Very evil by design.

It's really something to show the mundane day to day life of a loving Nazi family while at parts of the film you can hear gunshots in the distance as well as faint screams. The Nazi family lives next door to Auschwitz.

Seriouly they live in the nice house with a pool, garden and a staffed house and over the garden wall atrocities are being commited to no care of the family. Whenever you hear screams or gunshots the family doesn't flich or aknowdleges it. Even the smokestack with ashes constantly flowing out is nothing to them.

Again, this is very experimental and slow to show the mundane life of evil people. A haunting film.

Too restrained/dull for its own good imo, perhaps a bit pretentious. Were there horrifying/haunting/memorable moments or images? Yes, but I dunno if it justifies the movie as a whole.

As it was, I thought it would work better as a short film. A mundane day in the life of this Nazi family that has horrifying sounds in the background, leading up to that meeting where he approves the rotating crematorium. After that point, I was sorta waiting for it to hit another gear with a third act that truly deals with the horrors being inflicted on the other side of the wall. The ending was an interesting choice, but didn’t exactly land for me.
