Works, structured around an astonishing use of repetition, collage, loops and a filming technique that gives the artist a seemingly miraculous grip on reality, pull the viewer into the heart of a maelstrom, a chaos of emotions in which – exactly like the protagonists – he becomes lost and can never emerge from unscathed. 
Violence and Passion, the title of one of Visconti's last films, could easily be Keren Cytter's watchword as she repeatedly quotes and borrows from filmmakers she admires who have already portrayed the torments and perils of the soul. In addition to Visconti there are also frequent references to John Cassavetes, Roman Polanski and Pier Paolo Pasolini.
