  1. José Neves's rating of the film Karl May

    cinematography by Dietrich Lohmann.

  2. Howard Orr's rating of the film Karl May

    A prelude to "Ein Film Aus Deutschland", Syberberg crafts a conditions-of-possibility for Hitler's much later rise to power; in this way, it is in very much in the same vein as Haneke's "The White Ribbon". The embattled May is portrayed as equal parts adventurer and hazy mystic -"the finest deeds of a nation have always emerged from its soul"- but crucially one crafted from the context of his turbulent times.

  3. Michael Convery's rating of the film Karl May

    I wish Syberberg had continued the stylistic experiments of Ludwig with Karl May. There was so much potential.
