    Man where do I start with this review. I am unable to form my thoughts on this film into a coherent whole, so in advance, I apologise for the rambling nature of this review. I'm gonna get this out of the way first.

    voll von Motiven (Prozess, Sex, Traum/Wirklichkeit, Geschlechterrollen, Schicksal und Lebenswege, "Reise ins Herz der Nacht", Männlichkeit, Beziehungen, Sicherheit, Familie usw.), hochinteressant, oft an der Grenze zur Komödie/Satire, manchmal das Gefühl der Film spielt seine Motive nicht richtig konsequent aus, vielleicht nicht schlecht, vielleicht gar der beste Kubrick?!
