Ivan and the Dogs (Lek and the Dogs)

Description
Lek, played by the French performance artist and actor Xavier Tchili who starred in Köttings two earlier feature films This Filthy Earth and IVUL, returns with a mesmerising performance of a man close to the edge, buried under the weight of his own existential terrors. With trace elements of Tarkovsky's Stalker and Samuel Beckett's Krapp's Last Tape the film sends the protagonist, Lek into a zone deep underground only to see him surface in the Atacama desert in Chile. Ultimately the film inhabits a foggy no-man's land between documentary and fiction, between essay and narrative whilst at the same time probing for answers to the universal questions of Where now? Who now? When now?

Lek And The Dogs may be uneven and self-indulgent but it is also full of moments of startling lyricism and originality.

Ultimately, whatever one takes from this overwhelming collage of sound and vision will be wholly personal.

The focus on a social outcast allows Kötting to push Lek to the furthest periphery yet, while the play's multimedia texture prefigures his employment of various visual and formal techniques that blur recollection, imagination and warped psychology.

It is intriguing, perplexing, bemusing.

Experimental film can be a euphemism for half-baked, but there's unorthodox and compelling architecture at play here.

Weird I can handle, but this is excruciating. I think I'd prefer to live with street dogs than watch it again.

This thematic hodgepodge...is a mixed bag in terms of quality, too. For every riveting, eerie scene, there's another that looks like low-budget padding.

Kötting's real skill comes in the marrying together of images with Lek's memories, pushing at ideas of desolation, anxiety and trauma that take us into emotional territory that mere words cannot."
