Critic Reviews for The Burning Wall
...not a frame of film is wasted in telling its story of lives tortured, drugged, humiliated, and terrorized by fascist, pro-communist ideology.
A balanced, thorough and well-documented chronicle of how one Germany became two, then one again.
Beller's history of dissent in the German Democratic Republic is admirably concise and surprisingly thorough.
As familiar as much of this history may be, to hear it recounted by those who lived it lends it a new emotional immediacy.
A frightening look at Communist-controlled East Germany.
On the surface, Beller's film is an acute primer on mid-century socialist statism gone inevitably screwy, but beneath it, there's something to be gleaned about the psychology of German nationhood.
