  1. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film The Legend of Rita

    2-3. I'd say it's fair; it's pretty slow for the most part, but using Gudrun Ensslin as the model for a fish-out-of-water romantic comedy is a neat idea. The tension really amps up by the end, in conjunction with Rita's gradual defeat at the hands of the world around her. It doesn't reach the wit or incendiary attitude of other films I've seen in this genre, but I don't think it was a waste of time either.
