Oct 28: Das Schloss (The Castle)

PG KINO presents:

Tuesday, October 25 at 8:00pm

Alice Cook House, Seminar Room

as part of the Michael Haneke series

Dir. Michael Haneke (1997). Running Time: 123 min. English subtitles. Free and open to the public.

“Haneke's screen adaptation is his weakest film to date. It feels rushed and hectic, a far cry from both his first film and the texture of Kafka's original novel. Ultimately, it adds little to our understanding of either Kafka or Haneke.” (A. J. Horton, Central European Review)

How cold does Michael Haneke have to be for a punitively faithful Kafka adaptation to qualify as one of his most humane works? (F. Croce, Slant Magazine)
