Michael Benson proves with this film that he has a perfect grasp of the aestheticization of politics as well as of myth- creation within totalitarian systems. Predictions of Fire skillfully exchanges archival, reportorial and also fictional scenes, which together make a new story. It places the NSK movement within a historical framework – something which didn’t happen for any other of the artistic avant gardes. Predictions of Fire doesn’t for a moment try to hide what it’s all about: how to fascinate with manipulation.
