Kaspar Hauser - Jeder für sich und Gott gegen alle

Werner Herzog West Germany, 1974

Zac Weber's rating of the film The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser

The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser is a strange and beautiful film that displays Werner Herzog's personal sense of detachment from the mores of "civilized" society. Bruno S. completely submits himself to the role, and the color palette really comes to life if you get a chance to see a quality 35mm print.
