Out of this world, but not for everyone
2 April 2001 | by (Worcester,MA) – See all my reviews

I gave this a 9 because I acknowledge that not everyone will appreciate Syberberg's cutting-edge techniques and also because I haven't seen this film in almost 10 years (it's very hard to find), and I stumbled upon this site in a quest for it.

For anyone who is interested in film, this is a must see. You can see that Verhooven (The Nasty Girl) and Lars van Trier (Zentropa, Breaking the Waves) must be intimately familiar with this film: the montages, the backgrounds, the different textures. The sound effects. This film may require patience and some background in German history to be completely enjoyed, but even without an iota of either it's still a wild ride.
