Interesting subject, shame about the film
8 November 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a very mediocre film about an endlessly fascinating man. The various film clips shown here are not identified so no one unfamiliar with Lang's work could even guess what they are from. The film is frankly a complete mess. The talking head interview with Claude Chabrol is extremely interesting, if badly shot. I had no idea Chabrol was so keen on Lang. Nor did I realize the full extent to which Lang was a cinematic hero to the French. So one does learn things from this film. The Germans interviewed in the film seem rather dour. Everything is shot badly, edited badly, Lang would have been so embarrassed. Volker Schloendorff says some interesting things. But all these people are so far from the camera. Really, how can anybody be so enthusiastic about a master of the cinema and then make a documentary about him which shows no cinematic skills whatever? Nevertheless, for those of us who really care about Fritz Lang and his work, it is useful, and we should be grateful that these people made the effort.
