Edwin Brienen's Terrorama is an example of transgressive cinema at its very best. Provocative imagery and subversive political ideas are the main ingredients here, set in a world of television, terrorism and decadence.
This prophetical film scared the hell out of me, first seeing it two years ago in New York. What is most disturbing about this film is that Brienen seems to make a point with his radical nihilist perspective on humanity. Shot in 2000, the film deals with topics such as freedom, religion and society, one year before 9/11. On a personal level, one of the actors in this film (Theo van Gogh) got murdered by a Muslim fundamentalist, November 2004, on the streets of Amsterdam.
I'm glad to see this film finally gets a proper DVD release. Terrorama might not be technically perfect, by context it's for sure one of the most important films made in the last ten years.
