thepaintedman published a wonderful review of Masking Threshold!
Johannes Grenzfurthner’s Masking Threshold is one of the least pleasant viewing experiences I’ve had in a long time. Don’t mistake this for me saying that it’s a bad film, though… it’s inventive, unique, and clever. It’s a truly singular vision. But that vision is not an easy one to endure. In fact, this found footage fanatic would argue that it’s probably one of the best example of the POV filmmaking methodology I’ve ever seen, a film that is truly inseparable from the filmmaking style and couldn’t be done any other way without losing serious effectiveness.
