Deckname Dennis 1997
Description: Dennis, an American personal eye, is sent to Germany to search out as much as possible about typical Germans and typically German behaviour. Disguised as a TV reporter he sets sail for Germany where we follow him interviewing a wide tons of people, from politicians and intellectuals to policemen, demonstrants and ordinary folks in the street. All this, however, is not what the movie is really about, for "Deckname Dennis" is now a satirical documentary about all those extremely odd people, groups and societies whose attitudes and behaviour are far too outrageous for anybody to take seriously. Therefore ALL the documentary bits are real, i.e. the folks really thought they were being interviewed by an American reporter, and so they gladly presented an insight into their beliefs, concepts and goals.
Released: 22 May 1997 Director: Thomas Frickel Writers: Matthias Beltz, Thomas Frickel Actors: Gerhard Bahn, Klaus Beier, Guenter Deckert, Christian Doermer Genres: Documentary

Konesielu #

Released 9/1/2015

Description: Machine Soul is a documentary movie about Finnish Electronic musicians. It is a glance at the methods, rituals and philosophy behind the music, but most of all at the burning passion that drives the artists forward year after year. Electronic melody is discussed from the mission of view of the artists. What are their early influences? How did their style develop? What has been the role of their environment? It is a form of melody that is often perceived as cold and lifeless by outsiders, but in the eyes of the artists it is a multifaceted and soulful method of life. The film is not an overview of the Finnish Techno stage nor a chronicle. Many of the artists are virtually unknown in Finland, but have a huge fanbase outside their home country. Machine Soul is a homage to the pioneers and newcomers of the Finnish Electronic melody scene.

Psych-Burn #

Released 1/1/1968

Description: “’Psych-Burn’ was what musicians call a ‘contract-breaker’. ABC had given us some coin to create a several short movies for a TV Pilot. “Love-In Tonite” was to be a psychedelic rock tons present with live performances, skits, and whatnot to money in on the emerging hippie demographic. Even pre-Disney, the network was riddled with a bunch of out-of-touch, pencil-pushing buffoons, so I quickly realized the present would be a disaster. Imagine if “Midnight Special” was produced by Aaron Spelling. Then cast Charles Nelson Reilly as emcee. That would have been a far more lively present than “Love-In Tonite”. So I decided to deliver the suits a farewell kick-in-the-butt named ‘Psych-Burn’. The greatest part was that they presented my movie sight unseen at a board meeting about the fresh Fall Season. I heard some heads rolled over that one.” —JXW

Deckname Dennis Reviews:

The Film is a experiment of getting German view on Germany like Germany can be seen from foreign people.Its an experiment like " How what aliens from outer zone see us humans" but a tiny closer to reality: Its how would folks outside the German culture should understand the German method of live. Dennis, the US TV-reporter (a camouflaged intelligence service man) is a German stereotype of US-American people. This stereotype is used to present the German audience the crazy and obscure German allday life from a distance.A nice interesting somehow various documentary with a 68ter political several on the German society. A type of European style "Micheal Moore documentary".PS: The R rating gotta be a mistake . there is no sexuality involved in this film unless you refer eating "Bratwurst" as sexuality ;-)


"Deckname Dennis" is a German documentary film and one of the two most known works by writer and director Thomas Frickel. It runs for 95 mins roughly and contains the premise of an American reporter coming to Germany to interview Germans and search out what the country is about these days. That is all make-believe though. The American is in fact a German whose American accent was quite terrible and almost all he does is interview Nazis trying to fool us into thinking that radical extremism is still a trouble here in Germany. Or at least was 20 years ago because these 1.5 hours are from 1997 still. So yes we receive it Nazis are bad, but how about a bit of objective journalism without fake identities where not only the radical right is shown, but also the radical left. The neutral approach is missing here fully and this movie now fits in nicely with the actual political climate where radical lefties pulverize a entire district in Hamburg and press as well as the major parties blame the police while each potentially racist comment is turned into a major incident immediately. Back to this film: If you think Michael Moore is bad, then be worried about what Frickel does here. Also I wonder how many hours of interviews they slash out where they received normal and appropriate responses to their provocative questions until they finally had the answers and the largest idiots on tape, those they wanted from the beginning. But it doesn't create the team any better, they are just idiotic from an entirely various perspective. With how fake everything in here is, I also wouldn't be surprised if some interviewees are paid actors. And it certainly does not count as investigative journalism when you annoy a difficult working construction worker with questions about who won the war, the Russians or Germans. No concept what the authors are thinking here. It's movies like these that make the large drifts in our society. I highly suggest not to watch this film. It's a nice thing it really isn't simple to search these days and I hope the filmmakers learned in the last two decades that you can care for your country's interests without being a Nazi. Germany first. Highly not recommended.
