  1. suede's rating of the film Dreileben: Beats Being Dead

    The most disappointing of six Petzold movies from 2000–2011 I've seen. Large portions of it feel made for TV in a bad way. And the vulgar, entitled, teenage drama queen is just a pain. She's not interestingly crazy. This film is a missed opportunity to give a stronger study of class/milieu relations. Intriguing location, however, by a reservoir in a dark forest. Would love to see it put to better use. 4.5/10

  2. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Dreileben: Beats Being Dead

    Cómo una simple historia de un romance adolescente, va dejando rastros enigmáticos. En medio del melodrama, Petzold filtra el thriller e incluso el terror. Un crimen, un asesino en serie suelto y un ambiente de bosques y caminos baldíos van provocando una atmósfera que parece irá a explotar en cualquier momento, como el personaje de Ana, tan conflictiva, vulnerable, erótica, violenta. Todo un personaje dual.

  3. lbaia's rating of the film Dreileben: Beats Being Dead

    There's a sense of unease and tension throughout the movie that's classic Petzold, and the gorgeous photography goes very well with it. Unfortunately I think that the sophisticated backdrop is turned down by a silly teen love story. Petzold knows better.

    "A love story transcending boundaries, without a future." - quite true!
