Storyline

Music, art and chaos in the wild West-Berlin of the 1980s. The walled-in city became the creative melting pot for sub- and pop-culture. Before the iron curtain fell, everything and anything seemed possible. B-MOVIE is a fast-paced collage of mostly unreleased film and TV footage from a frenzied but creative decade, starting with punk and ending with the Love Parade, in a city where the days are short and the nights are endless. Where it was not about long-term success, but about living for the moment - the here and now.

Watch it all from the safety of your seat
28 September 2015 | by jowonder2See all my reviews

Went to see B Movie: 'Lust And Sound In West Berlin', last night, its a must to get the DVD from German amazon out in October, because if you weren't having the late night indecency, you can now enjoy it in the safety of your seat. A magnificent marrying of style and content, and if you thought you were going to get lost in an unspecified anonymous collage of images; there's a clever use of main protagonist Mark Reeder, who as well as using voice over keeps you watching and draws you in with his own super 8 footage from this time - which includes when Nick Cave moved in with him.

Mark Reeder is founder and owner of the German electronic dance music label "MFS" and "Flesh".
