Like Antonioni's Blowup and De Palma's Blow Out, this Austrian video feature by Michael Satzinger uses the paranoid thriller form to ponder media manipulation of reality. Two young men—Patrick, the mute son of a TV journalist, and his boyfriend Jannis—set out to make a documentary about a string of political assassinations that apparently involve poisonous tree frogs; the story unfolds in flashback as Jannis is editing their footage in an effort to understand the events. As a study of how digitally altered images change our perception of truth, this 2005 release is thought provoking; as drama it's tedious. In German with subtitles. 97 min.
