Kaspar Hauser - Jeder für sich und Gott gegen alle

Werner Herzog West Germany, 1974

Mark Garrett's rating of the film The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser

Self-important. Further, it promotes lyricism as an alternative to rationalism. Sure, it doesn't make a lick of sense that someone could live in an unmoving position for seventeen, but if it's all set to Mozart and noble savage sensibilities then...forget it?
