Drugs are bad. This movie isn't.
18 January 2016 | by TobikenobiPSee all my reviews

We have all heard the urban legend of a bad trip right? But what if it wasn't just an urban legend? What if after taking drugs your personality would be altered? What if you couldn't control your temper any more? Die dunkle Seite des Mondes explores some great themes of the human condition and whether or not you are responsible for all your actions. Additionally you get wonderful nature shots that reminded me of such movies like The Revenant. Also quite some good acting from some of the biggest actors of German cinema. Especially fans of Dune and Das Boot should be happy to see Jürgen Prochnow deliver a great performance. Great little film if you dig suspense.
