It’s not everyday that I’m able to watch a Film five seats over from its Director, but for Stroszek, I was able to enjoy the Film sitting a mere five or six seats away from Werner Herzog. He had great insight on the FIlm and the experience was incredible, something that I’ll remember forever. I don’t think I would have liked the movie as much as I did if it wouldn’t have been in a packed theater with the Herzog in the room, because I was more willing to laugh at the “funny” parts and I learned some of the background of the movie which just gives it that much more charm. The movie was quirky and funny, but slow and actually really depressing at the same time. The humor is dark but it’s subtle, and it’s genius. The Actors are perfect and make the movie what it is without a doubt, it couldn’t have been done so beautifully without them. The story line itself is basic, but it’s really relatable and touching, being more relevant now than it’s ever been.
