Oskar Roehler Germany, 2006

tricky je's rating of the film Elementary Particles

I watched the movie right after I finished reading the book which made a still lasting impression on me. This was a big mistake! If the book could be described as a rough and at times brutal weapon tearing your brain and exposing some of the deformed ideas, delusions and lifestyles of the western society, then this movie adaptation could be compared to a toy pistol. I did not watch it to the end.
