United Trash of Schlingensief´s Brain
8 July 1999 | by Victor-35See all my reviews

In my opinion, United Trash is one of the most fascinating movies ever made. The Actors really had fun to act in this movie. The best Actor is Udo Kier who acts in every Schlingensief movie. Christoph Schlingensief is a german underground-director. Kier plays a homosexual UN-General, whose wife (Kitten Natividad (she acted in some Russ Meyer movies))has a relationship with the priest and bears the Messiah, called Jesus Panne. The language is mostly english with some german parts. A real great actor is the gu(a)y who plays the friend of the UN-General. The movie plays in Africa, and the most Actors are black. They have an dictator who tries to destroy the white house with an old V2-Rocket from Germany. You see, a real strange movie with great Actors and a real good director, if you can get this movie, get it.
