2016 | Serbia | Dane Komljen | ★★★
Dane Komljen's sporadically stimulating All the Cities of the North is a contemplative, vaguely meta Serbian film, comprised of cramped, awkward compositions, strange incongruities, and spare, thoughtfully chosen quotes spoken in voice-over.
"It’s like almost all is lost. Yet still they are here – abandoned bungalows, an artificial lake, dirty plastic bottles, lost donkeys and stray dogs, draining pipes running over fields of salt, deserted factories, statues of revolutionaries, concrete playgrounds covered with weeds, rotten fruit, folded T-shirts, pop songs, decades of forgetting, a single room with a blue tent inside. And it felt like a kiss." TMDb
