Plot synopsis
A wild ironization and deconstruction of the old Soviet pathos of the victory of technical progress – like the accelerated pulse just before a heart attack.
 

Commentaries and bibliography
 
Overpaintings and scratchings in scenes from the Russian science fiction film “Silver Heads” by Yevgeniy Yufit. Considering that this work is already an outrageous deconstruction of the old Soviet pathos of the inevitable victory of scientific and technical progress, “Stakes” must be regarded as its drug-fuelled exaggeration into the unsurpassable. Ralph Eue
