  1. Aardsy's rating of the film The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum

    Handkerchief filled with confetti.

  2. chicajomles's rating of the film The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum

    When political dimensions of a novel lies mainly on the language, the screen adaptation can grossly simplify the subject. This is not the case. The film is brilliant in the use of cinematic techniques to convey the harassment atmosphere of the BDR. It's also a testament of Von Trotta's feminist influence on Schlöndorff's work and how hard it was for them as a couple to (partly) survive the co-directing adventure.

  4. dionysus67's rating of the film The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum

    A key moment of New German Cinema, and one of the most politically radical films of that era, it launches a vitriolic attack on tabloids, their complicity with a police-state on the rise that is unable to exorcize its Nazi guilt. Bordering on bitter satire and conscious of exaggerations it features powerful performances (Winkler) and amazing set-pieces (Ludwig's arrest total mobilization scene). Essential viewing.

    Watched this in "Film Studies" class

  7. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum

    Una protagonista en medio de una acusación. Al margen de sí Blum es cómplice o no, se va manifestando en la atmósfera social una suerte de prejuicio político. "El honor perdido..." pueda que en principio conste de una historia en donde la paranoia reina, muy a pesar, su tema central es a propósito de esos productores de la paranoia; la prensa. Dura crítica al cuarto poder en su forma amarillista, perversa, crapulenta

  9. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum

    I think it's a basically stolid film, but I can't really bring myself to give it more than three stars. As a movie, I don't think it's ESPECIALLY evocative or complicated, narratively or aesthetically. The media robs people of their honor by turning them into what it accuses them of being. It's singularly a critique of deception and objectifying male lust. It's a solid, indistinct anti-system movie, basically.

  10. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum

    Relevant today as I’m sure it was then.

  12. Graveyard Poet's rating of the film The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum

    Compelling, powerful performance from Angela Winkler in this grim observation on how the police and press can ruin an individual's life, especially if it's a woman.

  13. James Mackin's rating of the film The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum

    Dieter Laser, the guy from two of the Human Centipede movies, in in this. So that's nice.

  14. Eric Sherwood's rating of the film The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum

    absolutely thrilling. True love and paparazzi.

  15. Gyseltrut's rating of the film The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum

    An excellent adaptation of Böll's 1974 novel.

  16. lndah's rating of the film The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum

    When #JeSuisCharlie got hyped these days, i cant help but to think about this film. It speaks in the eye of minority, how she died silently for nothing they called freedom of media

  17. wmk's rating of the film The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum

    I loved Mario Adorf in this.

  18. Joseph Silva's rating of the film The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum

  19. Ciprian David's rating of the film The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum

    In meiner kleinen Welt bekam ich nach diesem Film richtig Lust auf Blutiger Freitag, ohne den zu kennen.

  20. maddening cloud's rating of the film The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum

    The epilogue, featuring a newspaper editor's near-fascist rant about defending 'freedom of speech' and 'diversity of opinions' begs the question: is invading into people's private lives and robbing them of their honour 'freedom of speech'? A brilliant film everyone should see.

  21. PolarisDiB's rating of the film The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum

    A West Germany every bit as police state and surveillance heavy as East Germany. The police invade your private life on the pretext of stopping anarchy or communism (instead of the East's anarchy and capitalism), and the press destroys you individually by using freedom of press (instead of the individual you being destroyed by the lack thereof). This is a very dry and unsubtle satire. --PolarisDiB

  23. Lee Bullitt's rating of the film The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum

    watching this, I know there are people with nothing but scum and sleaze running through their veins, & you know that some of those people are so called Journalists. Just as bad, though, were those surrounding the DA's themselves. Katharina Blum faced the kind of smear campaign that no one of her working class status would ever dream they'd have to face. Every second of the film after it started I awaited her revenge.
