Poetic, slow (good slow) and revealing, a must see.
I saw Brötzmann - Da gehört die Welt mal mir without previous knowledge of who Caspar Brötzmann was, and I went out of the cinema with a feeling of knowing and even loving him (from a humanist perspective) him deeply. And not only this, a huge curiosity of further information followed, as I would really enjoy sitting with him to drink a cup of coffee and listen to whatever he had to say. I'm pretty sure that all of this wouldn't have happened if the documentary would have been made in a normal biopic format and without the intervention of Schueppel, that knew how to reorganize all the information, footage and audio collected in such a lovely way. My personal highlights, the contrast between silence and noise, the environments picked for the filming and the overall intimate approach.
It's not your every day documentary and it won't be as information- filling as reading the Wikipedia article or the Wired interview on Broetzmann, but watching it alone on a rainy Sunday will really make your day.
