(Neuer Österreichischer Film. Katalog, 1970)

The Viennese appear to have the closest of contacts with the American underground. Kurt KrenŽs 20. September (...) represents the most anti-aesthetic and most consistent venture. English film-makers describe KrenŽs film as an "Eating, Drinking, Pissing and Shitting film," and indeed, we see a day in the life of a man reduced to drinking beer, eating cabbage and then excreting its remains - and the camera work is so unspeakably crass that even hard-baked observers do not react without embarrassment. (Theodor Schröder, 1968)
