Nicht Versöhnt oder Es hilft nur Gewalt, wo Gewalt herrscht

Jean-Marie Straub Jerman Barat, 1965

dionysus67's rating of the film Not Reconciled, Or Only Violence Helps Where Violence Rules

Spanning five decades of tumultuous German history Straub's film raises the iconic, metonymical, cinematographic and political trope of architecture to new heights precisely because he denies this intuitively obvious notion of (architectural/dramatic) exposition. His flattened universe where eras and characters commingle eliminates convenient classifications/institutions, rendering violence a 'reconciled' continuity.
