Stroszek (rewatch)

Posted by martinteller on January 30, 2008

I will revisit some of my comments from four years ago, when I gave this movie a 6 score.  “Bruno S.’s acting style (or lack of one) worked perfectly for Kaspar Hauser, but here it’s distracting.”  This is somewhat true, his stilted delivery is like someone who’s concentrating too hard on remembering his lines.  But it’s not as bad as I thought it was.  At times, he actually seems quite natural.  “It’s just kind of slow and pointless.”  Well, that was just a dumb thing to say.  I think I was thrown by how un-Herzog the film is, it feels more like something from Wim Wenders.  Yes, it’s a little slow, but not unbearably so.  As for pointless, maybe, but if it doesn’t have a “point” at least it has some sort of direction.  “The cacophony at the end is really unbearable.”  Oh, totally.  I could hardly stand listening to it, although the accompanying images are fascinating.  Overall, I’m still not over the moon about it, but I’ve gained a little more appreciation for its charms.  Rating: 7
