User Reviews

Mr. Schneider's portrayal of the demented Dr. Baxter is simply brilliant.
21 June 2000 | by atf-crewSee all my reviews

Movie about a man (Baxter) who kills a clown (Methulskie). Some police officers (00 + Koerschgen) try to solve the case. Mr. Schneider acts as both Baxter and 00.

I went to see this movie at a local theater here in Germany. There were about 20 people there to watch it and after half an hour 10 of them left.

Later on in the Film - during interrogation by 00 and his decrepit, alcoholic assistant - Dr. Baxter remarks upon a form of sexual intercourse that would be impossible to engage in due to the number of people present. In my opinion this is one of the high-points of the movie but it caused another 5 people to leave.

The 5 remaining people enjoyed the movie a lot because... The movie is very funny - it has the kind of humor that makes you laugh instinctively and it´s also one of the strangest / trashiest films I have ever seen.
