Brandon Judell reviews Masking Threshold

Very nice review of Masking Threshold by Brandon Judell as part of his overview of all the goodies that are on start at the wonderful Film Maudit 2.0 Festival in LA!

With one of the best screenplays of recent years (preferable to Licorice Pizza’s), with the superb cinematography of Florian Hofer, and the awe-inducing editing by both Grenzfurthner and Hofer, Masking Threshold is a wry, dissective look at modern society’s derangement. It might get a little too Grand Guignol for some in its closing moments, but if you can embrace a character that’s equal parts Woody Allen, Norman Bates, and the Cartoon Network’s Dexter, has Festival Maudit got a film for you!

The Independent Critic reviews Masking Threshold

Richard Propes reviews Masking Threshold!

While Masking Threshold is not for the timid or squeamish, for those willing to invest heart, mind, body, and some semblance of soul this is a unique, inspired, intelligent, and impossible to forget cinematic experience.

Without Your Head reviews Masking Threshold

Diablo Joe reviews Masking Threshold for Without Your Head! 4/5 stars!

"Masking Threshold" will test the patience, endurance, and fortitude of many viewers, but those who stick with the picture will find it worth their while. Intelligent, uncompromisingly original, and often darkly comical, Johannes Grenzfurthner has delivered a film that stands apart.

Cinema Crazed reviewed Masking Threshold!

For those willing to pay attention and really watch this film, it leads to an interesting payoff and feels like a new thing, a new style, something they’ve not seen that many times before, if at all.

Futurezone über Roboexotica 2021

Die Futurezone berichtet über die Roboexotica 2021.

Die Roboexotica ist ein Kunst-Festival, bei dem Roboter Cocktails mixen. Die Roboter werden dabei von enthusiastischen Student*innen, Künstler*innen und Techniker*innen eigens für dieses Festival gebaut. Die Veranstaltung gibt es seit 23 Jahren.

Corona- und Lockdown-bedingt fand die Roboexotica vergangenes Jahr erstmals als Hybrid-Event statt: Ergo Wiener*innen konnen Cocktails bestellen, andere konnten dabei via Twitch-Stream zusehen, wie diese geliefert worden sind. Dieses Konzept wird auch 2021 wieder zum Einsatz kommen, wenn es von Freitag bis Sonntag heißt: Roboter, bitte mix mir meinen Cocktail! Wiener*innen können via Telefon Cocktails bestellen, ein Auto mitsamt Roboter kommt dann zur Adresse gefahren.

‘Horror Geek Life’ reviews ‘Masking Threshold’

Melissa Hannon, who runs the wonderful Horror Geek Life gives Masking Threshold 4 out 5 stars!

Masking Threshold is absolutely not for a general audience, and I don't believe it's meant to be. Although the genre is "psychological horror," which certainly fits, it goes beyond that and can fit into a few categories. Fans of art house, genre blends, and the unconventional will perhaps find the film as disturbingly entertaining as I did. With the amount of talent showcased across the board, Masking Threshold achieves the boundary-pushing heights it aims for, making it feel more like an actual experience.

‘Battle Royal with Cheese’ reviews ‘Masking Threshold’

Joel Fisher at Battle Royale with Cheese reviewed Masking Threshold.

Grenzfurthner’s script goes from simple and mundane to mind altering and harrowing over the course of ninety minutes and the audience is right inside the protagonist’s mind the whole time. Something so unconventional pays off as the film becomes a catalogue of the innermost thoughts of a man who’s not simply just lost some hearing, but is losing his mind.

An experience that most of us could probably share in recent times because it has felt like all we had were our thoughts to distract us. Masking Threshold shows the audience what may a little too much time on our hands and a lot of obsession may do to our minds.

QPVH interviews Johannes Grenzfurthner about Masking Threshold

Great interview about Masking Threshold with Johannes Grenzfurthner on quepeliverehoy.es!

Durante el festival de Terrormolins 2021 pudimos entrevistar a Johannes Grenzfurthner, director, guionista, interprete y montador de la película ganadora de la sección Being Different: “Masking Threshold”.

Grenzfurthner cuenta con una larga trayectoria como cortometrajista y documentalista a sus espaldas. Pero más allá del cine, sus habilidades e intereses van desde el arte en todas sus vertientes, la ciencia o la política. Para poder aunar y dar forma a tamaño cumulo de inquietudes fundó el colectivo Monochrom en 1993. La creación de “Masking Threshold” nace de la unión de todos estos factores y es, además de una de las películas más únicas del año, es un muestrario de todo lo que conforma la figura del autor.

CVNC: Masking Threshold at Cucalorus

CVNC's Tanner Benson mentions Masking Threshold in his summary of Cucalorus Film Festival.

Perhaps more than the people in the audience, the diversity of material onscreen sets Cucalorus apart from other film festivals. In a single day, I saw a collection of short films made for children (Buttercup Shorts: Youth Finding Their Way, dir. various); a soapy morality tale about life as a Black teenager in Boston (Memoirs of a Black Girl, dir. Thato Rantao Mwosa); a gross-out philosophical deep-dive into a man's struggle with tinnitus, and his subsequent decent into madness (Masking Threshold, dir. Johannes Grenzfurthner); and a slow-burn, punk-metal horror film about a young woman who learns about her genealogical connections to magic and witchcraft (Hellbender, dir. The Adams Family).

monochrom ist durchaus eine international agierende, in wien, graz und bamberg situierte kunstneigungsgruppe, seit etlichen jahren umtriebig, mit diversen volontariaten in zahlreichen realitäten: internationale kunstszene, apfelsortenzucht, powerpointoperetten, feldgottesdienste, beweisführungen, schirmherrschaften, soziale praxis, game- und schämshows, theorie, internet, dübel und schnittchen. v.a. das sammeln, gruppieren, registrieren und befragen (befreien?) von alltagskulturellen vernarbungen ist monochrom passion und quasi-ontologischer auftrag. kulturarchäologische grabungssondagen in ideologie- und unterhaltungsstätten. staatlich geprüftes rhizom. die schönheit der impliziten kaputtheit der selbstverständlichkeit ist anlass für phänomenologische wollust und (benutzer-)freundliche mikropolitische übernahmen. oder so.
