Best movie about Kafka's last unfinished novel
29 January 2008 | by (Oakland, California) – See all my reviews

Saw this movie one time only in June 1983 and have never forgotten it. Have been looking for it for years after. Even have been, every year or so, suggesting to the Criterion Collection that they may buy the rights to release this long lost gem. No luck so far on either account ....

I am a retired U.S. government employee, and can tell you there is, in this movie, apt illustrations of the way it can sometimes be within a sometimes inefficient bureaucracy.

Maddening truths. Brilliant portrayal.

If anyone has an in on this flick, please let me know when, where, how.

Thanks,

Greg
