| Balkanisation of violence in an absolutely non decrepit setting.
A highly sensitive aspect of Yugoslav director Djordje Milosavljevic's second film "Mechanism" concerns his imaginative narrative which has been the driving force to create a film in which a viewer is neither allowed to feel cheated nor taken for a ride.This is because of director's firm grip on sequence of events which range from scenes of boredom to scenes of utterly grotesque violence.It is no wonder that Milosavljevic is hailed as Balkan Tarantino.Apart from stress on all forms of violence there is a good deal of focus on unusual camera angles.This is something which brings a kind of realism to the violent scenes in the film. In "Mechanism", there is a virtuoso display of various forms of evil which may or might not have a directing bearing on the events that have taken place in Balkans.The best lesson that can be retained from "Mechanism" is that whenever senseless violence rears its ugly head,it is common people whose lives are shattered.They have to pay a price amidst all kinds of turmoils.By making "Mechanism", Yugoslav auteur Djordje Milosavljevic has crafted a superb film which needs to be seen more than once in order to comprehend the richness of its hideous ideas.
