    The Performance of Joaquin Phoenix ist great but the movie itself left me pretty empty. Should I sympathize with him? Should I wish he get caught before he runs amok? The Problem is, in this movie everything is fucked up and so there is no connecting factor for me as the audience. It's simply a not very subtle told origin story of a extremly unstable person becoming a brilliant supervillan. Sounds not very believable to me.

    Another one deleted from my list of shame. I saw this movie in it's newly available Final Cut for the first time and got sucked in it's morbid atmosphere immediately. An impressive piece of film about the madness of war and what it does to people. It's funny how men try to maintain normality, even in the most abnormal cicumstances. Wener Herzog's Aguirre, der Zorn Gottes comes to mind.

    Excuse me, I need to puke.

    The Message of the Movie:

    - God, Country and Family, in exactly that order
    - Don't ever question military decisions, do your job
    - Post-War Trauma is resolved by going to the shooting range
    - Mass murderer are heroes
    - The male members of the family are there to protect the female
    - Violence is legit to solve problems
    - Teach your children to be emotionless puppets

    Let's summarize: Hooray to patriotism, nationalism, sexism and violence. Thank god there's no sex scene in it, the american public would be outraged.

    Every single time I watch this movie I'm laughing my ass off. There is no one better to make fun of prussian stuffiness than Loriot. This is definitely the movie I quote the most.
