Rembrandt, Hitler or Me
Filmfest 2006

This production was wondering out loud about truth. About Rembrandt’s truth, about Hitler ’s truth, and about mine. Alice Miller had published a book in which she suggested that given Hitler’s childhood, his life as a grown man could hardly have been any different than it became. Gary Schwartz had published a book which proved that, as a human being, Rembrandt was an utter bastard, never mind the beauty of his paintings... From within each evening’s performance, Mike Figgis sat on a camera crane doing his own version of archeological research out of the contents of the performances. Ritsaert ten Cate, 4 Sept 1997
