Prisoner of War

Paul Schrader Germany, 2008

the_mentaculus's rating of the film Adam Resurrected

I feel like my brain was raped. It's a weird combination of Ninth Configuration and Schrader's own Dominion, and an experience that never meshes as you think it should, but is still an amazing piece of work for being audacious, iconoclastic, and well scripted. Goldblum is in manic brilliance here, and Jacobi and Dafoe don't hurt either. Not everyone will like it but this will be, at the very least, appreciated.
