Keywords: Films about Film, Media

"Deutsch's illuminating picturings push close to film's ability to reactivite the feel of that which has disappeared; but rather than lolling in the shelter of the simulative, both of these films subtly question their characters' relation to history and to their own deaths. They are portraits that remind us that these characters are done, through with, no more; yet at the same time, they bring them 'to life.' They question cinema's ability to formalize, to resuscitate, and to re-represent the past."--Barbara Kruger, ArfForum, Feb. 1985
