Steven Soderbergh Estados Unidos, 1991

Diderot's rating of the film Kafka

Soderbergh's main point of merit is that he understands a bit of the Kafkan humor, which is often elided in other adaptations. Most of the movie plays a bit contrived, with all of the various references to Kafka's work and imagination, but it is at least an interesting attempt at making a biopic of the "author" rather than the "person"--a film about the imaginative universe to which the name "Kafka" refers.
