Joel Fisher at Battle Royale with Cheese reviewed Masking Threshold.
Grenzfurthner’s script goes from simple and mundane to mind altering and harrowing over the course of ninety minutes and the audience is right inside the protagonist’s mind the whole time. Something so unconventional pays off as the film becomes a catalogue of the innermost thoughts of a man who’s not simply just lost some hearing, but is losing his mind.
An experience that most of us could probably share in recent times because it has felt like all we had were our thoughts to distract us. Masking Threshold shows the audience what may a little too much time on our hands and a lot of obsession may do to our minds.
