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.

21 February 2020 | by RubyMouseSee all my reviews

If you were young in the 80s and a fan of the tube, this is where that West Berlin special came from. At the time I was completely bemused by the post punk drug induced cacophony showcased in that and on John Peels sessions and preferred the Human League. Now my ears have matured, I find I actually love the raw sound produced by Einsturdenze Neubauten and that sound, and this movie, takes me back to a period of my life I'd largely forgotten. It's amazing that EN sounds so fresh today. So, while I'll no doubt watch this again, younger people or those not very interested in music, will probably find this rather slow.
