Die Niklashauser Fart

Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Michael Fengler Bondsrepubliek Duitsland, 1970

Neither/Nor's rating of the film The Niklashausen Journey

Uncharacteristically tedious R.W., a non-Aristotelian drama that engenders the Epic Theatre of Brecht, passing through sequences of song and didactism, its reactionary Marxist instructions not aging quite as well as Margit Carstensen. It's alright, Rainer, we know you learned your lesson.
